CTTR is a step in the right direction for the kart racing genre as it's eclectic and unique and manages to teach an old dog new tricks. The colorful characters and environments will thrill young eye candy junkies while the ease of difficulty will give younger gamers a confidence boost because they'll be able to see a lot of what this game has to offer. It's definitely a rental for older gamers who are curious but youngsters might want this in their collection permanently.

Okay, wenn man nur den Rennteil nimmt, dann ist Tag Team Racing ein ziemlich dreister Mario Kart: Double Dash-Klon. Aber dankbarerweise haben sich die Entwickler nicht einfach auf das Abkupfern beschränkt, sondern das witzige Racing Game noch mit fiesen Waffen, dem coolen Verschmelz-Feature und natürlich den ungewöhnlichen Jump&Run-Einlagen gewürzt. Und so innovativ die Mischung ist, so gewöhnungsbedürftig ist sie auch. Beides funktioniert gut, aber nicht ideal; speziell die Kamera in den Hüpfszenen sägt an vielen Nerven. Dass das Abenteuer so kurz und so leicht ist, kostet es ebenso Punkte wie der fast schon böswillige Verzicht auf Online-Modi – denn um die volle Spielerzahl auszunutzen, müssen es sich viele Leute vor einem Fernseher bequem machen. Nichtsdestotrotz ein sympathischer, liebenswert-bekloppter Genremix, den man sich ruhig mal näher ansehen sollte.

Crash Tag Team Racing is a super game for fans of previous Crash Bandicoot titles, but who are also a bit of racing action. The game looks and sounds terrific and while aimed at a younger audience adults should also be able to spend a few hours enjoying this game.

It's worth a purchase if you're seriously craving some cartoony vehicle combat or a game with a good sense of humor, or are just looking for unique title that effectively blends several genres into one.
GameSpot (Oct 27, 2005)
Crash Tag Team Racing doesn't break down the door of the kart racing genre with wanton innovation and brilliant gameplay, but it has enough going for it to appeal to those with a penchant for cute characters racing and blowing up one another. It'll be especially good for younger audiences, since the difficulty level is set pretty low. As for more experienced players, Crash is probably more worthy of a rental than a purchase. But one way or another, it's worth checking out.
Overall, Crash Tag Team Racing is a fun, yet short, romp, combining much loved elements of platforming action with madcap kart challenges. The lack of online support and simplistic gameplay detract the most frankly, but it makes a great game for those looking to spend time with their kids, without resorting to buckets of blood.
The fact that there's a lot more to do than racing a kart makes me want to recommend this as a rental to all gamers but it just might be a case of this game exceeding my original lowered expectations.

In short, Crash Tag Team Racing is no Mario Kart. But thank goodness it's not another Mario Kart clone - or what a shame it's not another Mario Kart clone, depending on your persuasion. Nine year-olds tend not to give a monkeys about such things, in our experience, and they're likely to love it. Grown-ups should approach with caution.

All in all, Crash Tag Team Racing isn’t a terrible game, just one that tries to be a jack-of-all-trades and master of none. It’s a decent game, one that is worth a rent.

Malgré l'impression mitigée que nous avait laissée Crash Nitro Kart, Crash Tag Team Racing nous prouve que le marsupial n'a plus de leçons à recevoir en matière de conduite. Même s'il s'inspire clairement du concept de Mario Kart Double Dash, le soft utilise parfaitement le système des fusions pour rendre les courses intéressantes. L'aspect plates-formes n'en est pas pour autant occulté, grâce à un savant dosage que sauront apprécier les joueurs, et en particulier les plus jeunes.
Game Chronicles (Dec 15, 2005)
When it comes to children’s games, Crash Tag Team Racing is actually pretty good. There is definitely a lot to do between the different modes of play, and the cartoony element of the whole game is always entertaining. Some of the areas of the game are lacking though, mostly due to poor design. Crash Tag Team Racing could have been a decent game when it comes to quality, but it seems to be most concerned about quantity. That’s not always a good thing, and it shows in Crash Tag Team Racing a bit too much, unfortunately.

Young children may enjoy this game for its cartoonish characters and fairly easy gameplay, as will arcade freaks despite the loading times that will continually test their patience. The rest, keep away. There's a million much better things to do with your time.

Crash Tag Team racing is an enjoyable, although rather confused videogame. If you're looking for a really good kart racer, this might not meet your needs, but as a combined racer/platformer, it does a good job. It's pretty easy, but never dull, and the cast of crazy characters and variety in gameplay should appeal to the younger market that the game was so obviously designed for.
Worth Playing (Jan 15, 2006)
Crash Tag Team Racing is by no means a masterpiece of a game. It will probably be forgotten quickly by most, even those who spend some time with it. While it is honorable that it at least attempts to make an interesting piece of a game, with platforming and racing mixed together and a nifty clashing element thrown in, the core gameplay just isn't strong enough to really make this terribly memorable. It could be great for kids, though: with characters straight out of a cartoon, fairly easy gameplay, and simpler platforming segments, it's definitely worth looking into for a younger one in the family. The rest of us may as well skip it and continue waiting for another great kart racer.

A racing game in the same way that the WWE is a sport, Crash Tag Team Racing distracts you from a partially formed driving game with pomp, circumstance, and platforming.
PSX Extreme (Nov 17, 2005)
Crash Tag Team Racing isn't all bad, but its positives are definitely outweighed by the negatives. Compared to all of the other racers out there--kart, arcade, or simulation--it's definately at the bottom of the list. Young children may enjoy it, since the controls are easy to learn and the style is at that age level, but they'd probably be much happier in the long run playing a game like Jak X: Combat Racing, one of the earlier Crash racing games, or, dare it be said on a PlayStation-focused site, Mario Kart: Double Dash on the Nintendo GameCube.
