Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled

Activision’s impressive remake deserves its place on the podium

Creative Director

Key Credits
Philippe Turcotte (Game Director), Etienne Beaulieu (Art Director), Alexandre Gratton (Lead Programmer)

An excellent update of a fine but dated original, Nitro-Fueled fully deserves its place on the podium of kart racers

  • A gorgeous, characterful visual overhaul
  • Stuffed with modes, characters and options
  • Bright, bouncy and well-balanced racing
  • Unique powersliding mechanic adds depth to drifting...
  • ...though it’s imperfectly implemented. New cutscenes add nothing
4 / 5
Version tested
