The monetization of nostalgia is nothing new, but the process seems to have accelerated in this current generation of consoles. HD remasters and “built-from-the-ground-up” remakes litter store shelves, and we’re invariably delighted to lap up these colorful reminders of our gaming past. Occasionally, these are cynical ways to mine our memories for cash, but other times they give old gems the polish they need to shine once again. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is, happily, the latter, and thanks to modern updates in the right places it feels as good today as the original did 20 years ago.
