    A solid adaptation of a PSOne game. The problem is that the same exact game has been made dozens of times and CNK does very little to further the cause. It's a kart racing game like any other.

    It's all a little generic and heavily recycled, but the powerslide system from "CTR" pulls it together. [Dec 2003, p.85]
  3. There's just nothing new on offer to hold your interest for longer then a few races.
  4. Xbox Live or System Connect needs to be added to every game like this. There is no reason this game cant have 8 people racing at once. I think that would make the multiplayer mode more enjoyable.

    Eventually you’ll find yourself getting fed up with the repetitiveness of each track.

    The gameplay feels nearly identical to "Crash Team Racing's" (PS1), even down to the speed-boosting wumpa fruits, so if you loved it before, you'll still love it, and if not...not. [Jan 2004, p.110]
  7. Visions could have been more imaginative with the weapons, which though numerous in appearance, offer almost zero variation among missiles, mines, and force fields.

    This is just as fun as "Crash Cart Racing" and the bosses were just as fun and creative, the levels were awsome, and the cutscenes were good.

But Although you didn't get to play as the tiger, polar bear or Dingodile, over all, it is a pretty good game. Full Review »
