  1. This may be a touch disappointing to hardcore fans of "CTR," but anyone looking for a solid kart racer should be quite pleased.

    While CNK may not break new ground, it does a quality job of delivering another kart racer in Crash’s universe. It will put gamers' mettle to the test and offer hours of "wait, one more time..." gameplay.

    What really makes Crash Nitro Kart worth playing is the solid control and innovative boost system. [Dec 2003, p.106]

    Younger players out there will get a kick out of the solid controls and bright environments, while more advanced players can appreciate the challenge and depth of the included boost system.
  5. Offers up all the enjoyment Mario Kart has. The graphics are clean and crisp and the game is a blast to play through in the adventure mode, as well as crashing down with a friend for a good time.

    The best way for me to describe it is the same of everything you love about kart games rolled into one. There is nothing shockingly new here.

    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 »
