Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled is a beautiful trip back in time. It is also great that PS4 and XB1 owners finally have a truly great kart racer available on their machines. This game is a must-own for anyone that loves these types of games, and for the price it is impossible not to recommend. Just be prepared for the difficulty and remember playing on easy is perfectly fine, and much more enjoyable for that casual romp.

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled brings the original game to our age and it does a fine job at that, as the experience goes way beyond improved graphics and sound. The amount of game modes, characters and customization elements, as well as the online and offline multiplayer components and the solid gameplay make this a very healthy proposal for fans of the series and of kart-racing games.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled's difficulty, memorable track design, and addictive power-slide mechanic make it a kart racer worth playing but it's not without its frustrations.

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled is a gold-standard remaster, capturing the loveably janky, off-brand spirit of classic CTR - and then some.

This faithful recreation of the once king of kart racers means Crash Team Racing has seized the throne once more, with enough content and a high skill ceiling to keep players returning for years.

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled not only succeeds as a loving and faithful adaptation of the classic PS1 release, but it has been turbo-boosted by a glut of welcome new content including characters, tracks, and modes. Though it occasionally shows its age in course design, and erratically pumps the brakes with a surprising difficulty spike, Nitro-Fueled remains a fast and fun kart racer, sure to please old fans and worthy of a test drive from new ones.

Despite those bumps in the road, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is both a respectful reimagining and a superb, modernized kart racer in its own right. It accurately borrows from its inspirations and enhances their qualities in ways that feel true to what Naughty Dog would have done if it had the hardware.

First there was the N. Sane Trilogy and now there's Nitro-Fuelled. Activision's Crash Team Racing rebirth is more than a quick cash grab – Beenox has modernised an all-time classic with such evident passion, making this the best kart racing game we've seen on PlayStation or Xbox for many, many years.

If you're looking for a new (technically old) kart racer to dive into and give your all, this is definitely a great one to add to the pile, especially if you've gotten your fill of all the iterations of Mario Kart.

Nostalgia might well have carried this one through, but in truth it doesn’t need it: this is a great game that has for the most part aged remarkably well, with the visual upgrade and other tweaks serving to make absolutely certain it’s worth the price of admission

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is still the best alternative to Mario Kart. Its cast of charismatic characters, its gameplay and power-ups, as well as its race tracks are at a high level. It is a pity that this remake has almost no new content and is limited to remaking the original CTR and Nitro Kart.
