A thrilling mix of racing and adventure, Crash Tag Team Racing delivers fun, chaos, and innovation, solidifying its place in the Crash Bandicoot legacy.


Embark on a wild ride with Crash Bandicoot in Crash Tag Team Racing, where racing meets adventure in an explosive combination.


The plot of “Crash Tag Team Racing” revolves around the protagonist, Crash Bandicoot, who embarks on a quest to win the ownership of a dilapidated theme park. The park, known as “Von Clutch’s MotorWorld,” is owned by the eccentric cyborg, Ebeneezer Von Clutch. The park’s Power Gems, which are essential for its operation and Von Clutch’s life force, have been stolen. Crash must recover these gems before his nemesis, Doctor Neo Cortex, does.

The gameplay diverges significantly from its predecessors, “Crash Team Racing” and “Crash Nitro Kart.” Instead of go-karts, the game features full-sized cars, emphasizing combat. A key feature is the ability to merge two cars, resulting in one player driving while the other operates a turret.

As Crash explores the park, he can enter platforming gates to unlock new areas and earn Wumpa Coins, the park’s currency. These coins can be used to purchase rewards such as new clothing. Crash can also engage in mini-games to earn Power Crystals, which are needed to open up the five areas of the park.

The game features a cast of colorful characters. Besides Crash, other major characters include Doctor Neo Cortex, who is also trying to find the Power Gems to own the park, and Coco Bandicoot, Crash’s sister. There’s also Nina Cortex, who, like Crash, has a penchant for mischief.


Crash Bandicoot, Dr. Neo Cortex, Coco Bandicoot, Crunch Bandicoot, and a host of other zany characters from the Crash universe.


Unique ‘clashing’ mechanic for races, on-foot exploration, mini-games, and vehicle upgrades in a vibrant, interactive world.


Crash Tag Team Racing stands out for its creative blend of genres, offering an entertaining and varied gaming experience.
