I always loved crash bandicoot, and especially this one.

The Good
The graphics:

The graphics are great. Character models as cutscenes were very nice to watch.

The gameplay:

It's really fun and addicting. You have to race on tracks with a kart to earn trophies. There are five race types: Quick race. Team race. Cup tournament. Laptime trial. Race time trial.

The Bad
The sound:

The sound is nothing spectacular. Each character repeats every five seconds a phrase when you come near them.

The Bottom Line
If you liked the original crash bandicoot, you will like this game alot better.

Developer Change

The game was originally being developed by Traveller's Tales, who handed development to Vicarious Visions so that they could focus on Crash Twinsanity.
