    But you can't deny that Crash Bandicoot's graphical qualities are one of the best we've seen from a game of this genre.
  2. No element of the gameplay is particularly mind-blowing, while in return nothing about the game is poorly designed whatsoever.
  3. The colorful characters and environments will thrill young eye candy junkies while the ease of difficulty will give younger gamers a confidence boost because they'll be able to see a lot of what this game has to offer.
  4. A great game for the kids, or maybe just the kids at heart.

    This is hardly a racing game, but it somewhat makes up for it in the extra stuff. Like this is 45% a racing game, and 55% other stuff. I doThis is hardly a racing game, but it somewhat makes up for it in the extra stuff. Like this is 45% a racing game, and 55% other stuff. I do like going around messing with other characters and just messing around in general, but the other stuff isn't really all that fun. The races can be too easy and somehow just feels more like a straight path rather than a challenging race. It does have some funny humor...and I mean SOME, not very much. It sort of has that Crash Twinsanity feel to it when it comes to humor. It's a fun game that could've been better. Full Review »

Tag Team Racing doesn't offer a lot to separate it from other racing titles. The controls are a little loose at times, the tracks are unmemorable and the actual racing aspect of the game is uninteresting, rather, the focus is more on the weapons, fusing, etc. These aspects are good, and help make the game pretty exciting, but it leaves the races feeling repetitive, and no real skill or experience is required to continually win races. The adventure sections are alright, they aren't great, but they aren't bad. The game itself is relatively fun and crazy, however. Full Review »
