    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.

    Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is exactly what the doctor ordered. It's light-hearted, hugely entertaining, and made with a real eye for detail that helps elevate the overall experience. After the disappointment of the recent Sonic one, this has put everything in the world right again.

    Perhaps even more so than Nintendo title, it perfectly embodies the formula "easy to play, hard to master", being at once easy to take in hand and immediately fun, but also technical and hyper nervous.

    A comprehensive, colorful and varied racing game that will appeal nostalgic gamers as well as nitro junkies.

    Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled’s difficulty, memorable track design, and addictive power-slide mechanic make it a kart racer worth playing but it's not without its frustrations.

    Both a respectful reimagining and a superb, modernized kart racer in its own right.

    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.

    While I never grew up with the original CTR, this is the most fun I've had in a long time with a Crash game and kart racers in general. ThisWhile I never grew up with the original CTR, this is the most fun I've had in a long time with a Crash game and kart racers in general. This is a remake, so you'd expect updated graphics with some new content, but holy **** does this game go above and beyond with that. Kart customisation, alternate skins, and they even brought back the bosses from Nitro Kart as playable characters. Due to my undying nostalgia for CNK, when I first went on the character select screen and saw those guys, I lit up with the biggest grin on my face that remained for my entire playthrough. This grin got even bigger when I got to some of the tracks from CNK. Besides that, it's the same CTR you all fell in love in love with, with the easy to learn but tough to master mechanics, the balanced items, and the deep and rewarding adventure mode. Except this time, it's the best racing game of the generation. Expand

    Nostalgic garbage, Toxic community who can't get past something that hasn't aged well. If you're a fan who grew up and loved it you'll defendNostalgic garbage, Toxic community who can't get past something that hasn't aged well. If you're a fan who grew up and loved it you'll defend and love this till the day you die.

    New comers beware because this learning curve is deep, and difficulty is laughable, this isn't your typical (WAH GAME TOO HARD) nah man when you play you'll understand. This isn't a family game this for the hard core crowd who invest hours just to learn how to play the game "decently" because anyone else just got no skill apparently and is trash for not enjoying trial and error for hours.

    Get Mario Kart or Team Sonic Racing instead unless you enjoy explaining how to play for hours while watching your friends rage than go ahead.
