    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.

Amore per il brand e cura nei minimi dettagli La fanno da padrona lasciando però un feeling su strada fluido è dinamico nonostante i 30 FPS comunque di roccia! Potenzialmente infinito grazie al Multiplayer locale e online offre Comunque anche in singolo una quantità sproporzionata di cose da fare avendo aggiunto alcune piste dei titoli successivi al primo capitolo! A chi lo Paragona o lo addita come inferiore a Mario Kart vorrei ricordare che almeno Crash Team Racing ha una storia in single player per quanto banale che sia ma mi dà un senso Maggiore a giocarci in singolo Expand

    This game is poor man's Mario Kart in my opinion. The reason I feel that way is because of the difficulty settings, the items, and theThis game is poor man's Mario Kart in my opinion. The reason I feel that way is because of the difficulty settings, the items, and the microtransactions.

    I started out playing on easy to get a feel for the game. I was able to easily win every race with no problem. As a result, I switched it to hard. The only thing that changed on the hard setting was how the ai players acted. They simply went faster. I understand that the difficulty is based on how fast I'm able to drive the track. The increase in difficulty feels artificial though.

    In comparison, Mario Kart's difficulty settings work a bit different. On Mario Kart, your kart goes faster on higher difficulty settings. As a result, playing on higher difficulty settings require you to be more knowledgeable of the track, and have more skill at maneuvering your kart. While the ai players are going faster, you're going faster too. On Crash Team Racing, this isn't necessarily the case.

    This transitions into another issue. The items in CTR are not implemented well. If you're playing Mario Kart 8 on 200cc, you can get hit by a blue shell and still be able to recover and win, as long as your driving skill is good enough. On CTR, if you get hit by a couple items while playing on hard, you're pretty much done.

    It should also be noted that Mario Kart 8 doesn't have microtransactions and mobile game style unlocks. CTR does. It just doesn't feel good.

    I understand that if I spend enough time on CTR I'd have a better time with it. But the game isn't satisfying enough to keep me playing. I'd rather stick with playing Mario Kart 8 on 200cc. While CTR isn't a bad game, I just feel like there are better options.

    Screw off Activi$ion. Putting microtransactions into a game after the reviews have been published, yet again!
    I was hesitant to buy this

    I was hesitant to buy this after seeing what happened to black ops 4, but I thought, surely they won't put microtransactions in a remake of a 20 year old game... right?
    Don't buy this game, the new Modern Warfare, or any of their games until they stop this garbage practice.
