    Nickelodeon Kart Racers has no online function, and its unlockable Grand Prix cups are just different combinations of tracks from the base cups. There is a decent progression and cart customization system here, but bland visuals and uninspired gameplay mean you can probably sit this race out.

    In the end, Nickelodeon Kart Racers is just kind of passable (and compared to others, I'm being generous with it). [Issue #37 – January/February 2019, p. 75]

    You would need to be a really hardcore SpongeBob SquarePants, Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan to prefer this. I don’t doubt that there is a really good game that could be made with the Nickelodeon license, but it needs to have much better core mechanics. And with such a great library of Nickelodeon properties available, you can’t help but feel it should be using more of them.

    Unfortunately, Nickelodeon Kart Racers is simply not good; derivative mechanics, a pathetic character roster and awful performance make this a bargain bin experience that you’ll be glad you missed. If you absolutely have to play a racing game with Nickelodeon characters, then by all means, go ahead, but we’d highly recommend you take a pass on this sorry effort.

    Save your money on this one and opt for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Nickelodeon Kart Racers is not an enjoyable racer to play and whilst it has some interesting ideas adding an RPG element to the mix, it doesn't make up for the rest of this half baked package.

    With a disappointing selection of series and characters available, a poor visual environment, faulty controls and a soundtrack that would need a complete overhaul, this is a passable game that will not satisfy anyone.

    I wish I were joking in saying that the game’s horrid music and sound quality has been haunting me every night while trying to sleep—I cannot get that damned music menu out of my head.

    Game is pretty fun to be played with friends. You cant really expect a Mario kart (lets be honest, you just can't, at least for now), so ifGame is pretty fun to be played with friends. You cant really expect a Mario kart (lets be honest, you just can't, at least for now), so if you take that out of the equation, it really deserves a chance. Just keep an open mind and don't try to play Mario Kart 8.2 with this disc on your console. Expand

    The game may lack some polish, but the solid gameplay is there. If you happen to like any of the shows represented, it's plenty of fun for the price.

    Oh my Lord Jesus, I really wanted to love this game and add it to my collection of awesome kart racers....but no. Literally, as soon as theOh my Lord Jesus, I really wanted to love this game and add it to my collection of awesome kart racers....but no. Literally, as soon as the game booted up I was like, "What the f*** is this?" But my partner and I love Nickelodeon and still wanted to give it a try, get to the character selection screen and it's apparent we are playing a mobile app disguised as a console-level game. Despite that, we continue on, we complete our character selection and.....no sound effects....I wanted to hear Sponge Bob say some Sponge Bobby sh**.....but nothing. Then the track begins, the graphics look.....ummm... yeah, so the driving....yeah that was interesting...this tracks cool I guess, if you really liked Rugrats mini golf on PS1 Im sure things look quite familiar, did they recycle this? (lol) Dont even get me started on the slime levels, I am literally still suffering from motion sickness caused from the back and forth bobbing of the kart...(I have never had motion sickness from any video game keep in mind; knock on wood, never say never.) Stay away from this game unless you want to become nauseous. 2.0/10.0 Expand

    I simply don't like it. Played it once. Never played it again. Get Mario Kart 8 Deluxe instead.

    This game is really not good. I mean it works, but there is absolutely zero point in playing it when Mario Kart exists. When your kart game isThis game is really not good. I mean it works, but there is absolutely zero point in playing it when Mario Kart exists. When your kart game is getting outclassed by Cars 3: Driven to Win, which already isn't a great game, you know it's dire. The game just feels tacky, the driving feels stiff, the models look horrendous and the obnoxious focus on slime give me whiplash. For $30, it's fine, but at that point you might as well save up another 30 for Mario Kart, also known as a better version of this. Expand

From the eye tearing music, the gorgeous models, and the divine game-play. This game will be remembered as such. Alas, it is too perfect. With all the boundless praise it may... no.... SHALL get in the future, it leaves me no choice but to give it a zero. Or else, the game may develop a cult following. And I don't like cults. They're icky and gross. So, with sorrow in my heart I must give it a zero.I rather it be known as a underrated gem, than a overrated game with a cult following the size of undertale and FNAF combined. I mean, think of the fan art for god's sake!! The game must be rated a zero, or else the internet as we know it will come to an end.
