"Crash Team Racing" (CTR) is a kart racing video game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. It was first released for the original PlayStation (PS1) console in 1999. CTR is part of the "Crash Bandicoot" series and quickly became a beloved classic among fans of kart racing games.


In "Crash Team Racing," players control characters from the "Crash Bandicoot" series, each with their own unique abilities and characteristics.

  • Single-player Adventure Mode: The game features an Adventure mode where players take on the role of Crash Bandicoot and race against a group of characters led by the antagonist, Nitros Oxide. The goal is to save the world from Nitros Oxide's plans by winning races and defeating him in various challenges.

  • Time Trials: Players can participate in time trials to compete for the best lap times on each track.

  • Versus Mode: CTR includes a multiplayer Versus mode, where players can race against their friends in split-screen or take on AI opponents.

  • Power-ups and Weapons: During races, players can collect power-ups and weapons, such as missiles, bombs, speed boosts, shields, and more, to hinder opponents or gain an advantage.

  • CTR Tokens and Relics: In Adventure mode, players can collect CTR tokens by completing specific tasks on each track. Collecting all the CTR tokens unlocks special Relic races, where players must complete the track in the shortest time possible.
