  1. 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 old cart racing mold has (finally) been broken...make that shattered" [Nov p.87]
  4. 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.
  5. A great game for the kids, or maybe just the kids at heart.
  6. 74
    Although the game is able to provide players with a diverse array of gameplay modes and even some surprisingly heavy platforming elements, they all eventually wear thin. Even so, the game's cohesive sense of humor keeps the game entertaining.
  7. All of the absurd weapons, sliding around corners, and destruction players have come to expect from a title such as this are present, but its fun factor wears off fairly fast.
  8. The racing isn't exactly the star of the show, but Crash Tag Team Racing's supplemental elements pull the whole thing together into a unique and mostly enjoyable experience.
  9. Admittedly broken down into its individual aspects Crash Tag Team Racing comes up a little short, however the overall game gels the pieces together to create an entertaining experience for young and old alike.
  10. 70
    One of the best Crash Bandicoot titles of recent years, it is a real shame the game doesn't last longer though.
  11. Nothing memorable, but at least it blows "Nitro Kart" out of the water.
  12. Crash's fourth journey on the Xbox isn't as fantastic as Crash Twinsanity but at least there is some effort to put forth a quality title.
  13. It could bring a whle new edge to the game if it had an online mode. [Holiday 2005, p.68]
  14. While it is honorable that it at least attempts to make an interesting piece of a game, with platforming and racing mixed together and a nifty clashing element thrown in, the core gameplay just isn't strong enough to really make this terribly memorable.
  15. Fusing two genres into a single game might have seemed like a good idea at the time, but with neither part offering up anything particularly impressive you have to wonder why they bothered. It's more crash victim than Crash Bandicoot. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]
  16. One word sums up CTTR... average.
  17. What they've done is mash together a platform/coin-collecting game with a plodding kart-combat racer, then grafted on some escaped-from-a-cell-phone minigames. It's a Frankensteinian mess.
