Depending on who you ask, Crash Team Racing is the superior kart racer to the genre-defining Mario Kart series. Some might go so far as to say it's the greatest game Crash Bandicoot has ever been in. But even if you're not one of the CTR devout, there's always fun to be had from multiplayer races full of chaotic items, crafty shortcuts, drift-friendly turns, and copious amounts of explosive crates. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled gives this PS1 classic a modern makeover just like Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy did, with spiffy new graphics, kart customization, and online multiplayer (in addition to local splitscreen races). It's the perfect party game, and will surely hit older folks' nostalgia centers like a speeding car driven by an orange marsupial.
