Calendario Nintendo Switch #15: micro-recensione Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled

Start your engines for a new flash review of Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled hurtles into the Advent Calendar

You don’t just live on first-party products and Nintendo fans, whether they admit it or not, know it well: for this reason our Advent Calendar today he stops with one review all dedicated to Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. The game hits all the targets missed by Chocobo GP, starting from a roster objectively unable to disappoint marsupial fans to a precise replica of the gameplay of the original. Speaking of remakes, there are usually oversights; we are therefore amazed at how much Beenox managed to recreate the feel of the beloved PS1 classic from scratch when Vicarious Visions couldn’t with Nitro Kart. While having the source code of Naughty Dog in my hands, moreover.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, eleventh review of the Nintendo Switch Calendar

Talking about Nitro Kart, the reason for the subtitle associated with the remake is the presence of every driver and every track from that game. Although the latter are limited to arcade races only (locally and online), we have two remakes for the price of one in our hands. From the classic 1999 kart racer, however, the adventure mode, the races against the bosses, all the tracks, the time trials and any cups make their triumphant return. We can’t go through everything for the sake of brevity, but suffice it to say that the single player is even more substantial than the (predictable) first place among the racing games in this ranking.

We close by talking about the cross and delight of the game: the post-launch support. The microtransactions were entered by Activision without Beenox’s knowledge a month after day one, with the implicit intention of avoiding the in-game payments logo on the game packaging. The Wumpa shop, since the launch of the title, has allowed players to unlock extra characters, kart colors, wheels, cars, decals and more by spending coins obtainable by playing online. Luckily, once the aforementioned online challenges were finished, it became possible to obtain coins with more lenient daily objectives, but it is still possible to buy them. And with the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate-like “everyone is here” effect for the Crash universe (with Spyro as a guest), that’s a real shame.
