The CPU AI in CTR NF is impossible to play against. Anything less than a perfect run in Story Mode will cause you to lose the race (classic mode). Frankly that saps a lot of the fun out of the game.

I have only played MK 8 a few minutes but I assume it is at least fair.

It may seem so at the start but after some time Hard Ai becomes easy.






Both are amazing games.
And I don't know if it's fair what I'm about to do but I'm giving it to CTR due to nostalgia with the PlayStation 1 version

The AI is not impossible to play against it, the AI is fair and the bare minimum you need to have a competitive race without going multiplayer 

The problem with CRT is that you need to know how to drift, how to get speed boosts, how to wisely manage items, how to use the shortcuts. It's a game that cherishes skill rather than luck

Of course, a bit of luck won't be bad, but of you are enough well trained player you won't have any problem to beat a race in story mode, at least playing normal, haven't tested hard yet

At its heart, Crash is a PS1 game. Yes, easily the best Kart racing game of the 90s but it isn't able to keep up with two decades of Mario Kart evolution. Still impressed with how great it holds up, though.

I cry for Diddy Kong Who needs karts when you can fly.

Admittedly, it did take 15 years for Mario Kart to overtake CTR.

Or 8, not sure whether I like MKWii better or not, definitely had more great multiplayer nights with MKWii but CTR was much better in single player.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I can never work out the drifting mechanic on CTR Nitro Fuelled.



I tried Crash Team Racing Remastered. I loved the PS1 original but...it doesn't handle nearly as well. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe a handling is perfect. CTR has that awesome story mode but...jeez I can't handle the controls. Function over form IMO. Though I'd love a story mode with Mario Kart



The one without MTX... and 60fps... and the better game overall.

Yeah not gonna lie, while I love the core gameplay of CTR, the Microtransactions added to the remake are pretty horrible.
