Summary: I'm a big fan of racing games, and got this one for my birthday (which, as I've said before, is a GREAT value). This game has a storyline, but here you go--If you don't care about the storyline, it doesn't really matter that much. Just go racing! If you do care about the storyline, you are supposed to try and escape from the evil alien (close enough) To do this, you need to win enough races to qualify to race his champions. This is where you meet Super Mario 64.
Summary: Crash Nitro Kart is the sequel to CTR (Crash Team Racing) on Playstation. The graphics are quite good considering it's an origonal XBOX game and I compared the graphics to modern XBOX 360 games. I havn't got far into the story but I can tell it will be good and this game works on XBOX 360 if you have XBOX live to update, i'm not sure it will if you don't. Overall, good game.
Summary: This game is obviously going to be compared to Mario Kart. Please don't, it really is quite unfair. For now, lets just say it doesnt exist. Nitro Kart is the sequel to the almighty Crash Team Racing on the PS1. Being a huge fan of this very game, i was disappointed to read that Nitro Kart had been given bad reviews. The only opinion i could trust was my own, so I went out and bought it myself and was pleasantly surprised.
Summary: Crash Nitro Kart may not be biggest kart-racing game for the GameCube (see MarioKart), but if you're a kart-racing fan with an Xbox or PlayStation 2, Crash Nitro Kart is the best option to come along in a long while. It's a totally respectable kart-racing game on its own, regardless of how derivative it may be.
