Crash TeamRacing Nitro Fueled and Spyro Great video Games for Kids

Much like most families we have gaming systems in our house. Another thing is we have kids of all different ages. I have a 7 year old, an almost 17 year old and Dan has an 11 year old. Finding video games that they can all play isn’t always an easy thing to do. A lot of the time you find games that one wants, but the other finds, is too childish, or the other wants and I’m like nope the other two can’t play. It’s a balancing act that us parents have a hard time finding at times. I did come across two games recently that I wanted to share with you. Crash TeamRacing Nitro Fueled and Spyro were both sent to me and are definitely in the category of everyone in the family can play.

If you like go kart themed games, then you will really like this game. A fun thing is that Crash team is an online racing game and can have up to 8 players. That makes it a lot more fun if your friends have the game as well, you can compete against them or just others on the leaderboard.

CTR and Beyond
If you played in the 90’s and remembered the game. They took it, remastered it and then above and beyond 10 fold.  Beenox has adapted all thirteen original tracks from Crash™ Nitro Kart and more to match the original CTR experience for fans.

Fur-K Fur-Real
 This game has all the beloved characters, karts, power-ups, tracks and arenas from the original CTR, now in 4K*, bringing so much detail and life to the game.

Trick Your Ride and Racer

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled offer players a variety of ways to mix and match kart bodies, wheels, paint jobs, stickers, and even add decals to karts. You can also customize your karts, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled will also let players customize their racers with N. sane character skins. This will allow players to adorn their characters with a zany sense of swag and personality.
Also new to the experience are unique podium animations available to certain skins making celebrating victories even more amazing. Players will earn customization items by playing through the Adventure Mode and also by collecting ingame Wumpa Coins to swag out their kart and characters in the game’s Pit Stop area.

They really did an amazing job on the graphics as you can see. I’m so glad they brought it back and made it better than ever. Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled is currently available on the Playstation 4, and Xbox platforms, and Nintendo Switch.

Just like Crash Team Racing Sypro was brought back and is better than ever. It even has a new soundtrack. Sypro is full of great graphics and animals like a purple dragon!

Fresh Controls, Original Adventure
Like I was saying above, they totally redid everything and made it better. This is a one of a kind game that kids will love. It still has the feel of the ones from back in the day but with a twist of modern as well.
