All in all, Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway isn’t the worst kart racer I’ve ever played, but again, it’s also not the best especially when compared to previous entries in the series. As previously mentioned, Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway is a middle of the road racer in almost every aspect save for its character roster, graphics, and elements like picking three characters to be part of your pit crew.

Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway isn't a bad kart racing game, but technical issues and some issues with track design make it hard to recommend to all but the biggest Nickelodeon fans.

Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway won't wow the pants off of anyone, but it's an enjoyable kart racer all the same.

Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway is the ideal game to break out for a night of family fun, especially if you have kids in need of entertainment. The colorful cast of familiar faces, as well as a host of stunning tracks, makes for a perfect party game if you can get enough people into the same room. However, its surprising amount of depth is wasted by an unchallenging AI and lack of real opponents to face online, meaning that solo racers without any love for Nickelodeon’s shows will find little incentive to carry on once the novelty has worn off.

Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway is a perfectly competent kart racer, which is elevated by an insane number of levels, characters, and configuration options. Far better than I expected, Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3 blasts players in the face with a slime-hose of options and game modes, offering hours of entertainment to kids and parents alike. Bottom line is, my kids like it, I like it, and we aren't going to stop playing it any time soon. I can't think of a better recommendation for a title of this nature.

On paper, Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3 does so much right, with a bigger roster of racers, more kart customisation, and the oft-requested addition of voice acting, which does add to the atmosphere considerably. But on the track it's hugely disappointing, with a severely reduced frame rate compared to its predecessor, making everything feel more sluggish as a result.

It's definitely not Mario Kart (but neither Crash Team Racing, for that matter), but Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3 Slime Speedway is enjoyable for Nicktoons' fans.

Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3 is a second-rate version of Mario Kart; there's no denying it. It tries to keep things fresh,  and the voice acting is a welcome addition. Although there were a few smiles along the way, the presentation and gameplay aren't up to scratch, and it's a little pricey.

NKR3 may not be on the same level as some of the kart-racing juggernauts like Mario Kart, but Slime Speedway offers a fun experience, especially online, and one that people of all skill sets can enjoy. It just may take those with a bit more background in this genre to find a true challenge.

Despite not being the most fun kart racing game currently available, Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway fulfills its role by delivering a huge variety of elements from Nickelodeon animations in yet another title in a franchise that is showing itself to be solid.

Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway brings some nice refinements to this ongoing series along with upping the amount of content across the entire package. It doesn’t play drastically different from the first two but you get more characters, modes, tracks, parts, and more than the last entry. I would fully recommend it to any fan of kart racers and especially to fans of these Nickelodeon properties.

Ultimately, Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway is a competent karting game. It looks nice, there’s plenty of single player content, and it boasts a strong roster of characters and tracks. But did we need another game in the series? Could the new content and characters not simply be an expansion to the previous release? Questions we’ll never know the answer to. If you already own Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2, you’re not exactly getting a completely new experience. But if you’re new to the franchise and enjoy easy-going karting games, you likely won’t be disappointed with what is undoubtedly the best entry yet.

Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway is the latest addition to the Nickelodeon Kart Racers series. Even before logging in for the first time, I was excited to explore the maps and learn the fundamental mechanics of driving in the Nickelodeon universe that I had grown up watching. Needless to say, I was more than eager to give the game a shot. Did the game live up to my expectations? Find out in this Rapid Review.

Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway is a perfectly fine kart racer that goes someway to filling that Mario Kart shaped void on multi-platforms. Its performance, handling and general sense of feeling repetitive overtime, however, mean its not one you’ll be playing over the long term.

Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3 might be worth a look once it’s in the bargain bin, but for now it’s not worth the £40 full price.

This kart racer is for the Nickelodeon fans and families alike. It’s an approachable entry for newcomers as it has a lot of reimagined content from the first two games. It’s also accessible, with a low skill barrier for entry that admittedly can go surprisingly high for experienced players. There’s a lot of content to get through but you’ll have seen the best of it after a hours and it doesn’t stand out amongst its peers, outside of featuring a load of Nickelodeon IPs.

Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway is the best kart racer in years. Not since 2019’s Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled has the genre felt so fresh, and you have to go way back to 2012’s Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed to find another non-Mario Kart that exceeds it.

Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3 does feel so much more complete than the first two iterations of the series, but it still has a little more room to grow…Even when I was frustrated at some of those things, the tracks, karts, and characters kept me coming back for more. It’s definitely worth checking out for fans of racing games and Nickelodeon shows and characters.
