    A fun kart racing game that offers four player local and online multiplayer with a huge cast of characters from the Nickelodeon catalogue of shows that you can use to build your dream racing team. It has you racing on tracks inspired by the cartoons and featuring the music you know.

    Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix is a wonderful racing game that kids as well as adults who grew up in the '90s will enjoy a great deal. The nostalgia factor is off the charts and more importantly, the racing gameplay is impressively fun stuff.

    As far as karting games go, Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix is one of the better entries in the genre. If you’ve played the first, you’ll appreciate the extra work that’s gone into making this a bigger and better sequel. Extra characters, improved visuals and a whole host of extra content are all very welcome. It’s just a shame that there’s still no real personality coming through from any of its included franchises. Still, if you want to play a fun racing game, solo or with friends, you can do a lot worse.

    Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix on Xbox One is not just an incremental improvement on the original: this is a gold-mushroom boost into the distance. While it doesn’t quite get on the karting podium - the identikit weapons and flat courses scupper that - it’s a solid kart game which rewards you for persisting with it. If the jump in quality is as large with Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3, we’re going to have a hell of a race for the best kart game.

    I don’t see this being a huge sell to kids and clearly this game has kids in mind and it’s disappointing because the game is good. The license is just so squandered. It’s a game that I think is fun and is worth a play, but I cannot recommend paying full price. $30 is the sweet spot because it just lacks the character that other karts racers have. It’s simple to pick up and play so if Mario Kart has run its course (heh) give this one a try with some friends.

    Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2 doesn't try to invent the wheel, but what it does, it does well. It's a good attraction for the little ones in the house.

    Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix is obviously a game aimed directly at children. To be fair though that shouldn’t be taken into account when deciding my verdict on the title. At times the game can seem fairly simple, but at others be a frustrating mess considering all the items and abilities that can screw you over in a race. It just doesn’t have that racing vibe that I’m used to seeing in racing games. It feels more hectic and chaotic more than anything. Without a doubt in my mind, my younger self would probably love this game and everything it has to offer. Taking off my nostalgia goggles Kart Racers 2 just isn’t the game for me and that’s OK. I know that the target audience would get a kick out of it and play it for hours on end. I’ll stick to Mario Kart 8 for now.

It's the big difference from other karting games, and opens up an immense amount of strategy and replayability. I can't stress enough how cool this is, both for single player challenges and competitive play. Still no voices, but the roster is incredible, game controls great, graphics are much better and music is finally good and representative of the series. Expand

    This is how you do a sequel.
    Nearly every gripe I had in my review of the first Nickelodeon Kart Racers
    Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2 Grand Prix
    This is how you do a sequel.
    Nearly every gripe I had in my review of the first Nickelodeon Kart Racers has been fixed here in Kart Racers 2
    almost as if developers actually watch care and listen to feedback
    That being said there are still a few minor adjustments gamemill can make for the eventual 3rd game in th series..
    Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2 Grand Prix is as youd guess a kart racer with nickelodeon characters, and this time you can feel time, effort, and care went into crafting the sequel.. as here there are more than double the amount of charcters in the first, infact there are 30 characters to unlock vs the original 12, and that’s right, you heard right.. unlock.. you have to unlock them.. a huge knock against the first, the first game had no replayability, but here theres so much to unlock and do in kart racers 2 that this has actual potential to be a racing staple in your collection, there are grand prixs to race and win, all with tracks that feel varied and alive.. a huge improvmenet over the original game, though just a little more care needs to go into them as I didn’t find any particularly fun to race on.. but thankfully the overhaul in the mechanics make racing fun enough on its own. Collecting slime tokens to go faster, collecting slime to unlock an ability to help you in the race, I love the collectin aspect, making kart racers 2 feel more strategic rather than simply relying on the mystery box.. youll also unlock different crew members that help you in different ways, and I really wish it stayed at that… a huge gripe I have in kart racers is when racers have no personality, and that sadly is the case here… for the sake of parents, there is no voice acting or taunts as you play which really makes the racing feel flat and while there are individual character stats, you can throw on different performance items to really make it not matter who youre playing as… same with the support characters you unlock, I feel they should be attached to the characters of their show to make this game and its characters feel like it has a little personality…
    This is my biggest gripe overall with kart racers 2, from its characters to its tracks which should be viewed as characters themselves.. its all flat and lifeless compared only to its potential, but compared to the original game, this is all still a massive jump forward.
    Other improvements come through faster racing modes, online and local multiplayer with up to 4 players and a ahcllaenge mode where you can complete a variety of challenges to unlock more main characters and support characters..
    While Nickelodeon Kart Racers as a series needs more polish, I was impressed with the improvements here, making nickelodeon Kart Racers 2 an actual pretty solid kart racing game
    I give Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2 Grand Prix
    a 7/10
