@NinChocolate
It seems seriously strange that no Nintendo blog sites have reviewed CTR. CTR is such a high profile, highly anticipated game, I would think it's guaranteed to bring lots of clicks/traffic to their site. Makes me wonder if there's something behind the scenes we don't know. Like switch review copies weren't available until later?

I really hate that you can't customize the controls in this game. Why is the default drift/boost the L and R buttons? Why can't they be assigned to the more natural ZL an ZR buttons?

So far I definitely think that Team Sonic Racing is a way better game than this. (But the lack of being able to race online with friends kills TSR).

Played a lot more of this now, having restarted Adventure on Easy. Now I'm finding the game way too easy, never leaving 1st place (as opposed to struggling for 3rd in Medium).

Quite frustrating, really. If the difficulty doesn't ramp up significantly I might try Medium again. If the difference between Easy and Medium is like this...I dread to think what Hard is like.

Despite difficulty issues, I'm really liking the game. Track design is excellent and the aesthetic really captures the essence of the Crash series.

Has anyone tried the online since the patch? It isn't a big deal to me, but if I buy a game with online multiplayer, I will mkre than likely use the online multiplayer, but from what I saw of it before the patch, it looked borderline unplayable.

Im still not sure if I like it or not.
Lobbies far from full, controles a bit clunky, the style is awesome, it is not on mk8 level ,and comes close to Sonic.

I've noticed the load times are a bit long both before and after the races. Is this on all or only on the switch?

Super tempted to buy this on the Switch, but I think I'll wait for the PC release.

@Buizel I played on medium and got a first on the first track after about 30 attempts. Track 2 and I gave up after maybe 20 attempts.

I switched to easy and I got 4 trophies with just 1st or 2nd attempts.

I'm sure it's to do with mastering the slide boosts because I came in second quite a few times on the master setting, but just could not get a first, and when I did I guess it was luck. The slide boost needs simplified.

I like a bit of a challenge but I dont know if I want to spend so much time trying to master something that needs fixed. I will complete it on easy and maybe a patch will fix it by then.

I find Team Sonic hard'ish on easy. But unlike Crash, with Sonic it get addictive, just one more go and I do it. With Crash one more go and it goes out of the window.

@Buizel @Ibra and anyone else...

Curious. For drift boosting, do you guys turn or hop first?

Just curious how some of you are doing it. I've gotten the hang of getting all three boosts, but still struggling to aim my drift boost turns - hitting the insides of turns and going too wide.
-I struggled with medium difficulty, so I'm currently doing adventure mode on easy, which has definitely helped with learning.

Question, is the drifting system on CTR pretty much same as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe?
Easier or even more difficult ?

My Top 6 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (100)
2. Dragon Quest Builders 2 PS4/Switch (95)
3. The Sims 4 PS4 + All contents (93)
4. Portal Knights PS4 (90)
5. Final Fantasy VIII PS1 (90)
6. Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome Amiibo 3DS (89)

@Anti-Matter
Hey there forum friend.
The CTR drift boost system takes a bit more button work and skill than Mario Kart 8 (feels different too). And, CTR is more difficult than MK8. My three star MK8 skills weren't much help. I have to play CTR adventure mode on the EASY setting, partly because I'm not good at drifting yet, and CTR AI is brutal and unfair at times.

CTR drifting:
Press and hold R to hop (while turning) and start the drift. Then press L when the boost meter fills up to get a boost. There's a boost meter bar in the lower right corner of the screen. You've got to hit your L button when it's as close to full as you can for the biggest boost, and you can boost up to 3 times in one turn. If you get all 3 boosts good, you'll see the kart wheelie and get an extended boost. Now, the catch is, if the boost meter overfills, you get no boost.

Definitely watch or read some Crash Team Racing reviews before buying.
See the boost meter in this short clip.

This game is really really good on PS4. It reminds me of mario kart in so many ways. The difficulty is high but gets better when you are used to the mechanics. Finished adventure mode on medium now I am trying to unlock all the characters/skins/karts/parts etc and will attempt hard mode after!
