Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

PlayStation owners no longer need to borrow their friends' Nintendo 64 in order to have a rollicking good old time racing virtual turbo-charged go-karts through outlandish environments. Crash Team Racing does an excellent job of re-creating that same thrill on the PlayStation.

Crash Team Racing has all the marks of the kart-racing genre, including big-headed characters driving diminutive go-karts, power-ups to increase speed and slow-down opponents, and thematic tracks with multiple paths for exploration. What CTR adds to the mix is fairness: tighter-turning cars are rewarded for precision driving, skilful jumping, and strategic placement of booby traps. Sure, the playing field is level, but the better the driver, the better chance he or she has of winning consistently without any annoying "catch-up code".

The one-player game is wonderfully presented as an exploratory adventure, while the multiplayer mode is a split-screen must-play for anyone with a PlayStation (and, of course, friends). Twenty-five tracks, twelve characters, and responsive control make CTR the gotta-have racing game. -- Jeff Young

Manufacturer's Description

The race to save the planet has begun! Crash Team Racing is speeding your way exclusively for the PlayStation game console. It's a multiplayer character racing game featuring your favourite bandicoot, Crash and a host of his friends... and foes! There's a new mad scientist in town and his name is Nitros Oxide and he's about to wreak his own havoc on this little island paradise. He is absolutely obsessed with speed and fast just isn't fast enough for him, so he concocts a crazy idea to speed the whole world up forever! Tune your own "wheels", pick up goodies and watch out for those environmental hazards. It boils down to pure racing skill! A key feature is the ability to select from eight of your favourite characters--play as Crash, Coco, Cortex, Tiny, Dingodile, N. Gin, Pura (the Tiger) or Polar.

Play against the computer or up to three of your friends! Race across more than 20 different tracks. There are five different, challenging racing modes: Adventure Mode, go head-to-head in Vs Mode, Time Trial Mode, Grand Prix Mode and Battle Mode where you can test both your driving and combat skills. Customise your carts! Win a race, receive a Gold Wrench and visit Lugnut's Garage for a "tune-up".

Upgrade your carts in three categories: Tyres, exhaust and engine. Can you say Power-ups?! Augment your chances of winning a race by picking up power-ups which have abilities to help you, or slow down your opponents. There are tons of moves: accelerate, brake, hop and steer. Rev your engines for a "fast start"; initiate a power skid to take corners tighter and faster; slam your brakes and slide around quickly--perfect for nailing that tailgater or cutting around a really tight corner; hit a Turbo Pad and hold a wheelie and boost your speed until you let go!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best since Mario Kart 15 Oct 2003
As a die hard Nintendo fan, and Mario Kart lover I have to admit that this game is hard to beat. Its fun for all the familly highly addictive and fantastic value for money. There is the adventure mode which is like a racing platform game with different levels, then you have the racing mode where you pick up power ups and really tee your opponents (dad, brother husband) off by turning them into a wobbly jelly or dropping TNT on their heads. Worth buying even for PS2. You wont regret it I promise!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars In 2007! 23 Oct 2007
By James J
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's almost a decade since this game came out and guess what, it's still one of the best multiplayer games around. Great handling, hilarious deathmatches and crazy race modes, makes this an absolute classic.

Superior to its Xbox sequel in a million ways, this game is still played by my mates at every party, to this very day, and that's value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Racing Game? Hell Yeah! 14 April 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I recently Re-purchased this game and I haven't been off it since. Perhaps my favourite and probably the best ever game series in Crash Bandicoot have managed to create a simple, but brilliant Kart-style racing game. As well as the original 3 Crash Bandicoot games this is the best game on PSone. Even today, Gran Turismo with it's stunning graphics, Burnout with it's Carnage Arcade-Style gameplay and The vry similar but ultimately inferior Mario Karts cannot match the sheer fun-factor of this game. I am just in awe.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best race game I have ever played 22 Jan 2001
This has to be the best race game I have ever played. This game has often been compared to Diddy Kong Racing on the N64. I have played Diddy Kong Racing several times, and it was fun, but Crash Team Racing blows it clean out of the water. Another game CTR has been compared to is Mario Kart 64, but I have never played that, so I cannot make a fair comparison.
This game has excellent graphics and reasonable sound, but what really got to me was the gameplay. It's fast, fluid and very addictive. I have to say that the tracks on this game are the best tracks I have ever raced on, they look nice and are exciting to race on.
The only criticism I have of this game is that it is rather easy to achieve the main objective (saving the world from Nitros Oxide), I managed it very quickly. Having said that, even having defeated the final boss I have only completed 40% of the whole game. I still have to get all the relics (awarded for getting round each track in record time), CTR tokens (awarded for winning each race and collecting the letters CTR during the race - which can be tricky) and Gems (awarded for winning extra races. Only then can I beat Nitros Oxide a second time and make him acknowledge that I the fastest racer in the universe.
This is a very easy game to get into, the controls are easy to learn and the 'tutorials' given by Aku-Aku (or Uka-Uka) give you helpful information.
The cartoony graphics and easy playability will make this game appeal to kids but this shouldn't put older players off. With a number of four player modes, this game could prove a great laugh after a few beers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! Buy it now! 7 May 2004
This is an addictive excellent game.
With a range of different characters with different skills this is the ultimate in racing.
The 2 player option is fantastic. There's nothing better than having a smug opponent who is ahead of you and you get to blow them up with a rocket!
The levels are not that challenging and the bossess easy to beat. I beat Nitros Oxide within a couple of goes (the bigger they are the harder they fall!)
Trying to get all the CTR tokens and relics to get platinum awards is so hard. I managed to get about 90% of the game.
I played the vs game with my brother (who plays it all the time and has got 100%) after over a year of not playing and I still beat him!
I play Crash's sister - Girl Power! Buy it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars racing game 15 Jan 2011
By Miss M. Potter TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
CTR, or Crash Team Racing continues the saga of Crash Bandicoot in this fourth package. The game is different to the previous three releases in so much as it is all based on the basic principal of Racing. The previous Crash games had a variety of styled challenges within the game but this has just one style. Having said that it is up to the usual standard for a Crash game.
You can play as one player or play against your friends with split screen. There are twenty five tracks to get through as Crash and eight of his friends race go karts and cars. It is fast paced as you try to win the race and slow down your opponents with booby traps and rockets.
This time the idea is that there is another crazy scientist on the loose called Nitro Oxide. He wants to speed the world up. To beat him you have five challenge modes to choose from. There is adventure mode, go head to head mode, time trial mode, grand prix mode and Battle mode. You can win races and pick up power ups to help you. You can skid, slam brakes, slide, hit turbo pads and do wheelies.
The graphics are up to the usual standard of colourful and interesting environments.
The main character is likeable. He has a humorous side as well with his facial expressions when he is frustrated and what he gets up to when he is waiting for instruction.
Some games require dexterity and other games get the adrenalin rushing as Crash has to race at break neck speed. This is a wonderful game and is highly recommended.
