    Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a must have for those who play looking for fun. Flawless mechanics, a lot of options and of course the nostalgia factor.

    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.

    An absolutely beautiful recreation of a magnificently designed racer. [Issue#180, p.81]

    Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a successful remake of the first CTR, adding contents from its sequels but keeping the highly satisfying gameplay of the first game, coupled with a great graphical boost. It lacks some of the features modern kart racers introduced and 30 fps feels a bit low on modern consoles, but it's still a must buy for lovers of this genre and nostalgics of the late 90s game.

    It’s safe to say that anyone who has nostalgia for Spyro or Crash will likely have a great time with Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, and while the difficulty will be polarizing, the game is stuffed with content, and since it’s available at a budget price, picking it up is a no-brainer.

    Those who enjoyed the original back on the original PlayStation, or newcomers to the series looking for a new karting title shouldn’t pass on Nitro-Fueled. It might not be perfect, but it’s certainly got enough going for it to make a solid challenge for Mario’s crown as the king of kart racers.

    Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled feels a bit too derivative, obviously borrowing ideas from competitors. But it’s also the most distinctly challenging of the bunch, almost working best as a single-player endeavor rather than a fun, multiplayer party game. It’s hard to tell if there’s room for that, as Activision itself seemed to struggle with how to sell this one. Crash Bandicoot fans will certainly be happy, and are likely already on board. Those looking for a challenge will have a good time chasing trophies. Casual/Party players who like kart games probably will want to stick with Sonic and Mario.

Conseguiram abordar uma idéia "digamos" moderna mas, ainda sim tem aquele "apego" forte pela nostalgia, com os gráficos melhorados, redesigns dos personagens bem elaborados e com novas adições:
    De karts, pistas, personagens, modo de customização, Pit stop e até um modo online para torna a experiência ainda mais "prazerosa" que dar gosto de apreciar. Foi o melhor jogo de corrida de karts em 2019, que eu já joguei e (sem dúvida) é uns dos melhores remakes de todos os tempos!! É um jogo muito divertido para todos os fãs de Crash Bandicoot!!

Optional control schemes for classic play or a more modern control scheme make this game enjoyable for old and new players alike. CTR offers a chaos and visual palette that mario kart often struggles to match and it's no surprise that the original version of this game changed the genre forever. Expand

    Still has the same problems as original. If you are going to make a remake why not iron out the kinks? That's completely beyond me. Hit boxesStill has the same problems as original. If you are going to make a remake why not iron out the kinks? That's completely beyond me. Hit boxes are sh't, slide boost doesn't always activate and rubber band AI is the last thing anybody ever wants in a racing game, be it a serious simulator or a casual kart racer. Your win is determined by the AI's random weapon pick ups. Doesn't matter if you do a perfect race with continuous boost chain. If the AI racer behind you gets a good weapon you are going to lose. So you win by pure luck, skill has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    Despite of all the problems when played with friends on the same couch, CTR is still the most fun you can have. As a single player experience, it's still sh't like it was back then.

Activision lays off huge numbers of people even when they make record profits. Activision also does not pay taxes and they receive money back from the government, meaning our tax dollars directly go to Activision whether we want them to or not. Activision is a terrible company and they soured this otherwise decent release, like they do with nearly every game they release. Stop supporting this terrible company. Expand
