Game: Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled

Platform: PS4

Star rating: 4/5

Rating: 4 out of 5.


This modern take on a retro classic is perhaps one of the best games to play on lockdown.

Crash Team Racing doesn’t take itself too seriously and is Sony’s take on the iconic Mario Kart venture.

It features characters from the original Crash Bandicoot series and players must avoid obstacles on various mind-boggling tracks to reach the finish line. You can get ahead of your rivals by using a boost to power slide and jump to gain speed.

Power-ups hidden across the track can give you a boost or slow your opponent’s progress down. Nitro-Fueled features all of the content from the original Crash Team Racing but includes online multiplayer and customisable karts.

The game supports local quick races and grand prix circuits, multiple battle modes and online multiplayer, as well as featuring a full adventure mode with new areas. 

It includes 51 playable characters, including every racer from the prior Crash racing games.

This adrenaline-pumping racing game is fun for all the family – especially while you’re stuck indoors.
