    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 the most polished and visual captivating remake in the recent portfolio and, arguably, the best kart-game out there.

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

    If you experienced Crash Team Racing first time round, then this remake will surely make you dizzy. It may alter your vision or judgment of the game, given it's so rich, subtle, captivating, catchy, generous and beautiful. CTR is a fairly typical game in the genre and doesn't reinvent anything, but it does perform like a beast in everything it does offer. It's an excellent carting title with a strong personality and gameplay that is perfectly balanced, but not enough to scream 'revolution', either.

    The game plays the nostalgia card heavily and quite successfully, and looks good to boot. On top of that, there's enough content here to keep you busy for a long time - if you can stand the awkward difficulty curve, that is.

    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.

    This is a beyond perfect remaster of the kart racing game I have always regarded to be the best ever made. It's taken me back to my teenageThis is a beyond perfect remaster of the kart racing game I have always regarded to be the best ever made. It's taken me back to my teenage years, this reboot has everything that made the original incredible and more! The customisation options for characters and karts are great, the rebooted graphics are amazing, even on the switch which has less powerful hardware, they've optimised it really well and it looks great still and you just lose a little definition as it runs in 720p resolution instead of the big console versions who are running at 1080 (both versions run at 30fps). The game features a few nods to the classic CTR game such as legacy soundtrack and authentic loading screen times (30secs to load a race for big console version, 45secs on switch). But don't let that get you down, This is a triumph, I urge everyone who has ever loved kart racers to give this a go, and the Mario kart fans especially have to give this a chance because it is in many ways superior, and rewards good players for usr of skill, and punishes you less with random crate power ups, and the speed of races increases as you get better at the game and chaining turbos and learning the tracks, etc - thankyou everyone who worked on this game! It is amazing!

    TLDR:
    -loading times
    +best kart racing experience of all time

    Much like the N-sane trilogy, this Crash remake successfully redoes the original with adding more content, better graphics, and online play.

    Great racing online. The drift boost is a difficult move to master. Excellent controls and overall "feel" of the game.
