Excerpt: When Naughty Dog's first Bandicoot title was released, the game pushed the PSX to some of it's limits. The title was an instant success for Sony and Naughty Dog, and after a while Crash Bandicoot became Sony's official mascot. A year later Crash 2 was released and that time around Crash's second title boasted graphical performance as well as some gameplay enhancements. Another year another Crash title.
Excerpt: Like all of the Crash games and their derivatives, Crash Team Racing (or CTR ) has lush graphics. The tracks are very easily distinguishable, and themed after various levels in the previous Crash Bandicoot games, which is a really nice touch. The kart-and-character models are detailed, with lots of frames of animation to keep you giggling as you tear around the track.
