Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D review

Racing fun for the iPhone

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D

Our Verdict

Huge amounts of battery draining fun.


  • The next best thing to Mario Kart


  • Tricky control system. No mulitplayer option.

Yes, we want Mario Kart too, but until then, Crash Bandicoot will have to do. In any case, the similarities are startling: race a kooky character round a series of tracks, driving through boxes to reveal various offensive and defensive power-ups.

It looks pretty good – think early Nintendo DS – but the tilt-the-iPhone-to-steer control system isn't particularly easy to get to grips with. We'd also like to see a multiplayer option, but it's still huge amounts of battery-sucking fun.
