4.0 out of 5 stars Not what a Crash Team Racing fan expected November 14, 2003
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
I have all the Bandicoot series and love them all , both on PS1 and PS2. This game just came out today and I've spent about an hour with it. I was looking forward to this release since I heard about it a couple of months ago.
First of all, Crash Team Racing is the predecessor and was made for the PS1, and is one of my favorite all time games, just a lot of fun. I expected CNK to take it one step further with the PS2 and have an awesome game, however, sadly, I am truly disappointed.
All the elements of CTR that made it great are missing from the CNK, excellent music, fun effects ( confetti everywhere at the end of the race ) and quasi-realistic dynamics of the vehicles. Even though this is a fantasy type racing game, I expected the dynamics of the vehicles to be at least true to the rules of physics ( like they were in CTR). I just don't feel like I'm driving these things and having much affect on the outcome of the races. For example, if you lift your thumb off the gas pedal to hit the power-up button just for a half second, your cart actually slows instead of coasts.. This is hard to explain if your not a CTR fan.
Even if I based my review independent of CTR, I would still give it only 2 stars, the music is monotonous, the tracks are a bit too busy to actually 'get into the race' with, the voice overs are either the same as CTR's or they are just obnoxious, and the driving dynamics, like i said, don't really 'work'.
On the plus side, the scenery is nice. But overall, this is the worst game from the bandicoot series yet. Disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get Crash Team Racing too if you haven't already May 25, 2005
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a review from somebody who hadn't played any kart racing games except for the Mario Kart series until a few weeks ago. And I've gotta say -- Crash Nitro Kart is a lot of fun. The whole control scheme with its three boosts in a row takes a while to learn, but that's a good thing, because you can have a blast playing while you are learning. Also, there are so many modes and so much to complete (I just discovered the course ghosts in time trial mode for example) that this game will probably keep you coming back. And, if you really take the time to learn this game and get good, the 'hard' difficulty mode in Cup Tournament mode is a big plus - it is actually hard. It is much more challenging and much better than 150cc in Mario Kart Double Dash.

I bought this game at the same time I bought Crash Team Racing, a 1999 game for PS1. I would recommend getting both. You can learn one game and complete its adventure mode, then move on to the other, then come back to the first one and put to the test what you learned in the other. I've done a lot of that. If you just get one get CTR - it's a little bit better game with slightly better controls, more tracks and more interesting tracks, but I would recommend both.

3.0 out of 5 stars I waited 4 years for this game and I'm disappointed! November 18, 2003
By A Customer
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
I bought this game the day it came out and put it on and after going through all of the boards I have to say I am disappointed.
I love CTR and I thought this would be an updated (graphic wise) of the game. Some of the weird weapons are just weird. The green protective shield - you can't shoot it at anyone like before. I hate when the wheels turn and cling to the ground - it feels like you're not even moving. You shouldn't have to power slide through the whole game in order to get some speed. I think there is too much detail in order to keep your attention to the actual race. I loved the snow boards on CTR and the 1 snow board on this game I don't like at all. Too many dips and and the snow coming down is annoying. I never thought they would make another one and when I found out they were I was counting down the days till I could get my hands on it. It's ashame Naughty Dog didn't make this one. What were they thinking!

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't Go Near this game! March 4, 2006
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
No matter how cool this game looks like, don't ever buy it. When I first looked at it, I first thought it would be like the classic,fun Crash Team Racing, little did I know I would be ripped off. The gameplay is boring, the controls are unresponsive, and there are not as many tracks.The sound is BAD. The characters repeat the same taunts over and over again.(especialy Coco)To sum it up,(you'd get bored to death if I told you everything I hate.)if you are a huge Crash fan, and you love kart racing, get Crash Team Racing(PS). If you're still a Crash fan, but you don't really like kart racing, get Crash Tag Team Racing(PS2). And if you don't like Crash, but like kart racing, get Mario Kart Double Dash!!(GC)Like I said, don't go near this game!

4.0 out of 5 stars ... March 9, 2004
By A Customer
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
This game had awesome graphics and sound. The tracks were really cool and fun to play. The problem i had with this game is that it was way too easy. I beat the final boss on my first try. The stupid part of this game is when the final boss challenges you to a 2nd race. But, in order to compete in the 2nd race you have to beat the "Relic Race"(beat each level in a extemely short amount of time to win.) The relic races are basically impossible and you have to beat one for each level. So the game goes from extremely easy, to just annoying. But if your in it for the graphics and sound, its an amazing game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just not cutting it December 19, 2003
By Gregg F
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Like many of the other reviewers here, I was a huge fan of Crash Team Racing (CTR) for PSOne. If you're not familiar, it's a kid-friendly game where you race around various tracks.
That game was just plain fun, and the weapon pick-ups scattered on the boards added an element of strategy. In addition, the cars were easy to control, there was a multitude of weapons to use, and it took some time to get through the levels--especially the "boss" levels where you're one-on-one with a main character.
This game has none of the charm of the original. The cars are often difficult to manuver around tight curves, and there just doesn't seem to be as many weapons to use. Plus, the other characters seem to be really good at dodging things left in their path, so most of the weapons are useless. I also noticed that some of the boards are virtually identical to the boards in the first CTR. The new creators have also added a tandem mode, which enables you to team up with another character on the board.
While this is interesting, it makes the levels even easier and further eliminates any challenge to winning races.
In short, this is one situation where adapting a game for PS2 was just not worth the effort. Pick up CTR for PSOne and's probably $20 or less, and it's a lot more fun than this one. Or, if you want a fun driving game for PS2, pick up Simpsons Road Rage.
