Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2 by Activision and developers Polarbit has improved on what was already a decent, if out-dated Mario Kart style racer, making it a great, fun arcade experience for your iPhone.
Players have the option of choosing between tilt or virtual steering controls via the menu and both work fantastically, providing smooth control for each kart. Those after more finesse might prefer the virtual controls, but the tilt controls do make the game far more entertaining to play. New weapons are available to disable your foes and players will want to start mastering the jump and slide mechanics to make the most of each level's numerous short-cuts.
The graphics have been greatly improved over the original, with a streamlined interface and more detail on each of the game's characters. It's still a fairly simplistic 3D style, but this game is more in keeping with the Crash Bandicoot series. The 12 available tracks are varied and fun to learn, though there's no way to practice the three tracks in each tournament, forcing gamers to replay every single one in order to secure a first-place victory.
The tone of Nitro Kart 2 is one of sheer fun, with so many available modes to unlock including challenges that allow you to improve and add more karts to your roster. Multiplayer has been added in this sequel, which was lacking in the original, though we were unable to play any matches at the time of this review. A great karting title for anyone's iDevice.
Description"...Polarbit, in partnership with Activision, have pulled the rabbit out of the hat and produced a near perfect racer." - TouchGen.com
