    Loved this game on the PSX, probably my most played game there together with Tekken 3.
    So this is of course fantastic news. I still remember whole maps of this game, sweet memories....
    Too bad it's gonna be for PS3 [​IMG]

    The first Crash Team Racing was better than Mario Kart until Mario Kart DS came out...for me anyway.

    Can't say I've liked any of High Impact's titles but racing is a different genre to their usual platforming fare.

    Doubt it, Activision owns Crash now and seeing it appeals to kids it'll be on every current format they can stick it on.

    Crash Team Racing DEFINED kart racing games. I still consider it one of the best games (heck, all Crash and Spyro games pre-suckiness rule!!!) This is gonna be awesome!

    Hopefully this game will be on PSP at least because I'm planning to get one (for the heck of playing Crash and Spyro PSX games)...

    It's on GoNintendo now too, they say it's for PS 3, 360 and Wii!
    Epic! Mario Kart Wii + Crash Team Racing + Boom Blox (2)+ Wii Sports (Resort), what an awesome party console this baby is.

    Haha Pinstripe? Just leave a green tonic in the middle of the last ramp that you see before the finish line and he's gonna be MILES behind you.

    Nitrous Oxide however, is a different story. Had to use the Super Turbo cheat just to beat him. Even to this day, when I watch an N.Oxide battle video, I say to myself "This guy's skills are just like mine, but Oxide still has the pwn factor" [​IMG]

    Me and my cousins each had this game and we would play it every time we went over each others houses but the 2 Crash racing games after the first one were let downs for me I hope they make this one better.

    I got about 100 hours out of Crash Tag Team Racing, I got everything. Plus loads of hours on the other Crash Team Racing games.
    You can see how hyped up I am and how disappointed I am because I will never be able to play it.

    I can imagine online play in this would be massively awesome! The sound of the rolling bombs and the approaching rocket are more intimidating than MK's weapons...

    The games developed by Naughty Dog and Vicarious Visions were the best, aswell as Crash Bash.
    The rest were OK at best.
    I would so get this game for PS3 and Wii if it was good, normally wouldn't get the same game for two different consoles, but Crash owns.

    I personally get bored of MK very fast but I never got bored of CTR

    Even if it is a PS3 exclusive my new PS3 should do the job [​IMG]

    I'm so excited

    CTR: Crash Team Racing = awesome

    That however was Naughty Dog's last Crash title. Then we got the likes of Crash Nitro Kart and Crash Tag Team Racing.

    Why will this one be any better?

    If you got the time and money, play ALL Crash and Spyro PSX games. You will absolutely love it. I am still longing for Crash 3 (the only Crash PSX game I never played; it was rare back then)...

    And whoever said Crash Bash, you rule! That was also fun. Especially the ball repelling stages...

    Whenever I get a PS1 emulator, CTR is the first game I ever try.
    And in HD? AWESOME!
