A fun game that can be hard on the eyes.

  • Summary: Parts of this game are pretty cool as far as the futuristic and colorful graphics, along with some good sound effects. It's too bad they didn't seem to finish the sound effects part, as some are obviously missing. The game is shaky sometimes and the camera angles are awful.

CTR fans may like it, but it's half a game!

J. Bunton, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this game because one of my favorite Playstation games of all time was the original Crash Team Racing. I beat that game 100 percent and wished there was more to the game but it took me a long time to complete it all the way. This game was 30 percent done by the second day I had it and I'm not one of these people that sit in front of the TV and play a game constantly, I don't have that kind of time and just play when I can.

An Improvement on CTR?

Steve VanderMeer, Amazon
17 January 2005
  • Summary: Like many of the other reviewers, I found Nitro Kart very similar to the original CTR. The "improvements" are hit and miss. Sure the graphics are much improved, but what would you expect going from from PS to PS2? Meanwhile the game controls seem less responsive and the sound quality is muddy and the sounds themselves much less a part of the game than with CTR. The running commentary from the other racers in CTR was half the fun.

Overall: Decent. Compared to CTR: Get CTR

Sean W. Thomas, Amazon

  • Summary: I really didn't care for this game at all. I rented it from Blockbuster and ultimately only played it once. The Multiplayer setup isn't the best in the world, the plot isn't nearly as solid as that of the game's predecessor, Crash Team Racing(CTR), and the gameplay is just bad. I hated the control factor. The new developer tried to improve on the gameplay, but it only screwed it up.

Great gameplay but lack of length

Ralph Gold, Amazon

  • Summary: It's got great gameplay, it's easy to control and it isn't as babyish as MArio Kart Double Dash but it losses out on points because it's so short and there is a lack of character {all the bosses should be unlockable}. I personally prefered the playstation 'Crash Team Racing'.

I waited 4 years for this game and I'm disappointed!

Street, Amazon
18 November 2003
  • Summary: 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.

Crash Course Bandicoot

  • Excerpt: "Crash Bandicoot's second outing on the PlayStation2 was, perhaps surprisingly, a sequel to the cult PSOne kart racer Crash Team Racing. The first instalment of the series to come on a DVD, Nitro Kart doesn't make any notable technical advances, but will doubtless please fans of the original as it follows the same formula so closely. And that means all the things you loved (or conversely, hated) about CTR are recreated here, almost to a fault. Essentially ...
  • Pros: Fun, nice tracks, good visuals, great multiplayer
  • Cons: Unforgiving, overly difficult extra modes, Crystal Arenas are poor, ineffectual weaponry

  • Excerpt: "...olds because they all no crash bandicoot, but for older kids it's a bit to childish. I am 12 though and it's not that fun, i prefer realistic games like Toca Race Driver 3 and Gran Turismo 4. it's quite addictive at the start, but once you get to about halfway to completing it, it gets boring so you turn it off, because it's too easy and you get bored off it quite quickly in the story mode. But in the multiplayer mode it's really fun because you ...
  • Pros: Fun for young children .  Good and easy to understand
  • Cons: For about 7 - 10 year olds .  Graphics are not that good .
