* EarWorm: Most seem to think the soundtrack is quite forgettable, but the main menu theme may be the one exception. Especially because it's used to great effect in the opening sequence.


* PolishedPort: The Xbox version has a leg up compared to the other two versions; aside from having better load times, the game is capable of going up to 720p using the Xbox component cables. This doesn't sound too impressive these days, but at the time, it was pretty much unheard of for console games to be ouputting that high of a resolution.

This doesn't sound too impressive these days, but at the time, it was pretty much unheard of for console games to be ouputting that high of a resolution. Unfortunately, running the game in that mode does massively slice the frame rate down, and the game also does not accommodate for the change in aspect ratio either.


* EnsembleDarkhorse: The champion bosses in this game (Krunk, Nash, the two Norms and Geary) are quite popular with fans, especially Nash for having a design that could easily fit in with the evolved animals and Big Norm for being a [[GracefulLoser surprisingly good sport]]. Too bad they're only playable in the GBA version...

That said, when the bosses were announced to return in ''VideoGame/CrashTeamRacingNitroFueled'', fans were both dumbfounded and ''delighted''.


* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: In the intro, Crunch and Aku-Aku are talking about a new fad diet. Several fans expressed interest in hearing the rest of that conversation because of how out-of-place it was in a racing game.

Added DiffLines:

** N. Trance's mechanical body is so bulky that there's physically no room for a steering wheel in his kart. He gets around this by reaching his long arms down to the bottom edges of the kart and physically wrench it back and forth in order to steer.


* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Only the three main characters of Team Bandicoot and Team Cortex are playable throughout the main story. Oxide is DemotedToExtra and isn't playable in the Adventure Mode (and nor are his new minions Zem and Zam, castrating the opportunity to give them much personality), and neither is N. Trance, Dingodile, or Polar, which greatly limits the number of playable characters in the single-player campaign. N. Tropy, Pura, and Fake Crash are even absent from the story entirely and serve almost no role whatsoever in the game. A unique set of bosses are created for the games' story, though outside the Game Boy Advance version, they are ironically unplayable, and even Velo himself is only playable in his smaller, minion-esque form. That said, ''VideoGame/CrashTeamRacingNitroFueled'' brings back all of the new racers from this game and appears to give them more fleshed-out personalities.

* VindicatedByHistory: Over time, the reception to this game has become far warmer with many people saying it stayed truer to the series' roots than the following ''Crash'' racing game, ''VideoGame/CrashTagTeamRacing'' (a ContestedSequel in and of itself), and this attitude only increased with the reveal of ''Nitro Kart'' content in ''Nitro-Fueled''. The fact that all of the OriginalGeneration characters from this game have been given more fleshed-out personalities definitely helps.

Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFuel: Dingodile, strangely enough. While Polar and Pura, the other two members of Team N.Trance, look completely normal, being brainwashed has given Dingodile a crazed, manic look that's [[https://youtu.be/FPkbdWvUUbA?t=559 absolutely terrifying]].

* TheScrappy: You'd be hard-pressed to find fans of Zem and Zam. With a lot of fan favorite characters from the previous game missing (and the more well received boss characters of this game being non-playable in most versions), and with these two serving no purpose other than to give Nitros Oxide two partners to race with, they're frequently derided as being wastes of space with [[FlatCharacter no real charm or personality]]. Of the two, Zem is more hated, with his FatBastard {{Gasshole}} dialogue getting real old real fast.
