Having great fun with this. The feeling of speed is amazing, and am finally venturing online. Tempted to get it as a digital download too as I'll be playing this for months to come.

Have the game on PS4, if anyone wants a friend for some competition. PSN ID is grrich.

I love the sound of all the Spyrocharacters, will have to get them all when they come out.

Do you think I would like this? I never really played the crash games nor CTR. I love Mario Kart, F Zero, Wipeout and enjoy realistic racing games as well. Do you think I would be likely to enjoy it without any Crash nostalgia to mask any shitness?

Yeah it is fun to play and playing online can be great with mates.

There is an adventure story if you want to do it on solo. And there is a battle mode, Grand Prix cups, time trials and etc. With the CPUs, mates or mixed as well.

I never had any investment in the world of Crash when I first got this, but it was fun enough that it stayed a part of me from when I first played it to now.

Like DarkRula, I had previously not really played any sort of Crash game, but enjoyed this game a lot and have become somewhat invested in its world now I guess. Started playing N Sane Trilogy afterwards and have been enjoying that a lot too.

There may be some recency bias involved since the game is fresh to me, but honestly I think CTR might be better than those other kart racers, and I've played a fair few including all the Mario Karts, Diddy Kong Racing and more recently Sonic All Stars Transformed. 'Course though, they all have their strengths and Nitro Fuelled is not without its issues.

Yeah, it's great. The tracks are very well designed, it has a great feeling of speed, challenge, and plays fantastically. Has a load of content, and will keep getting updated with a few new tracks, lots more drivers, etc. It's not as well balanced as a Mario Kart, but it's definitely a top tier kart racer.

It has basically swallowed up all my gaming hours for the past fortnight. Has been fun to see the skill level online climbing as well. Would like to see them improve the matchmaking though.

I'd like to see them increase the speed of the blue orb so the person on first place can't just outrun it for an insane amount of time.
