DESCRIPTION

Crash Nitro Kart © 2003 Vivendi Universal Games


Crash makes like Jeff Gordon.
The ruthless Emperor Velo as bandicoot-napped Crash and forced him to race against enemies old and new. The stakes couldn't be higher: if Crash fails, he can say good-bye to planet earth.

Features:
12 tracks
Four unique worlds, including jungles, volcanoes and space stations
19 characters, including Crash, Crunch, Coco and Dr. Cortex
Each racer rated for speed, acceleration and turn
Three difficulty levels
Mode 7 graphics
Two- to four-player multi-Pak action via Game Boy Advance Game Link Cables
GCN connectivity
Solo players can advance through tracks in Adventure mode, compete for cups in Arcade mode or race against the clock in Time Trial mode
Turbo boosts, TNT, homing missiles, invisibility and more power-ups
Soundtrack features bouncy music and comical comments from rivals

The tracks may be flat but they're well-designed, with lots of big jumps, branches, hazards and sharp turns. The backgrounds and racer sprites look great, but the tracks themselves tend to be pixelated. Success depends on catching as many of the plentiful zippers as possible.

It was only a matter of time before a character named Crash got his own kart game. The result is a fast, fun GBA racer that the bandicoot's fans will enjoy.
