    Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is another remarkable remake of a true timeless classic. It masterfully balances new and fresh content with everything that originally lapped up such a fanbase. CTR Nitro-Fuled not only feels like an indulgent, nostalgic treat but it feels like a game that can truly be appreciated all over again thanks to new and exciting tweaks and explosive new content. Step aside Mario, there’s a new karting-king in town.

    First there was the N. Sane Trilogy and now there’s Nitro-Fuelled. Activision’s Crash Team Racing rebirth is more than a quick cash grab – Beenox has modernised an all-time classic with such evident passion, making this the best kart racing game we’ve seen on PlayStation or Xbox for many, many years.

    Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a fantastic remaster, filled with great courses and plenty of replayability, even if the difficulty sometimes feels off.

    Overall Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is an enjoyable kart racer. The karts are fast and the tracks are challenging, so the campaign mode can be a little frustrating to casual and younger gamers. Multiplayer racing is a lot of fun, both locally and online, and you can easily get in a couple of races when you only have a few minutes of game time available. I love all of the customization options, but picking up all of the coins that you need and accomplishing all of the goals required will take some time to get through.

    Once I changed the controls to something more comfortable, I had a blast playing through the well-crafted adventure mode and all the tracks and challenges that reside in it, even if the CPU players had the rubber band effect.

    Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled is going to bring a lot of joy to its players. Those after a concentrated dose of nostalgia will do no wrong here, and the majority of the game works incredibly well in the modern day – particularly when played with friends. It’s been a long time coming, but this generation finally has a suitable alternative to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, even if it doesn’t quite reach those heights.

    A jam-packed remake that looks and sounds brilliant, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a lovingly crafted remake of a much beloved kart racer. Online play and customisation bring it kicking and screaming into the 21st century, but for as fun as the zippy racing is, it sticks perhaps a little too closely to the original model. High difficulty and some unforgiving track design mean this feels slightly dated. However, it's hard not to crack a smile as you drift around familiar tracks, laying down TNT crates, and humming along to the music. Fans will love what Beenox has done, but for everyone else, just be aware of the game's retro tendencies before stepping behind the wheel.

    Amazing remake... nearly endless content and some of the most skill-based driving mechanics of any racer I've played.

    This Game is AMAZING! Don't believe those who say that microtransactions are everywhere and there are 0 customization posibilities. No! That'sThis Game is AMAZING! Don't believe those who say that microtransactions are everywhere and there are 0 customization posibilities. No! That's just not true! Now, CTR NF has 51 playable characters, nearly 5o different kart bodies, nearly 200 different paintjobs, many, many stickers and many many more content. Really, this game has the widest customization posibilities fom any other racing game, and it's still growing. And no, microtransactions are NOT needed to unlock all these item, if you play during a wumpa time (weekends at certain hours) you can win up to 1000 wumpa coins for a SINGLE RACE. Most expensive items cost 2500 wumpa coins, so that means to unlock a legendary item you need to win 3 races (online match). It's sad to see microtransactions at all in this game, but they are tottaly avoidable and really, you MUST put some effort to even FIND a place where those microtransactions are. Please, give this game a chance, because it's a true gem of racing genre! I love it! Expand

    Buen juego. Mejor que el original. Me entretiene bastante. ¿Algo malo? Diría que casi nada, sólo que cuando un auto va muy rápido al lado tuyoBuen juego. Mejor que el original. Me entretiene bastante. ¿Algo malo? Diría que casi nada, sólo que cuando un auto va muy rápido al lado tuyo o usa nitro al lado tuyo te aplasta, pero nunca tanto como para ponerse a llorar. Expand

    DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!!! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!! This "game" is full of glitches like data corruption, lobbies crashing when hosts leave, tracksDO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!!! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!! This "game" is full of glitches like data corruption, lobbies crashing when hosts leave, tracks that don't work right, placement of racers getting jumbled after a race, etc. The whole point of the game is to win races to get coins to buy new racers, carts, and cosmetics. However, the coin payout is atrocious and gives you barely anything, so the game becomes a boring, grindy slog to play through. You're also required to play online if you actually want to earn any too. Of course, instead of actually fixing the game, Activision decided it would be a good idea to add in greedy, predatory microtransactions after they said they wouldn't and the game somehow got good reviews despite being a broken mess. Total waste of $40!!! Save yourself the trouble and money, and go buy a better game!!! Expand

    Added microtransactions post launch, unforgivable business practice that I cannot support. Do not buy this game.
