What is it?
Crash Team Racing is Naughty Dog’s first attempt at bringing Crash outside of the platformer genre, in a kart racer similar to that of Diddy Kong Racing or Mario Kart. All of the best characters from the first three games are present, and provide a challenge to beat in all of the many courses available to the player.
PS1, PS3 & PS Vita
Brilliant story mode.
Loads of unlockable characters and courses.
Challenging time trials.
Graphics are a little old now.
Oxide is a bloody cheat.
Start your engines… This game is the best kart racer I’ve ever played. Nostalgia goggles may well be in play here, but to be fair, even when I’ve gone back to play it, it’s been spectacular. The adventure mode is top notch to begin with, but coupling it with time trial modes with spooky voices over the top when you do well is amazing. A real gem worth buying.
