Crash Tag Team Racing - Console Differences

PlayStation 2

The game is identical across all three home consoles, but the PlayStation 2 version has a few unique quirks. The game runs at a locked rate of 30 frames per second (whereas it's unlocked in the GameCube and Xbox versions, albeit with frequent dips). It also features connectivity with the PlayStation Portable version, featuring 2 unlockable battle arenas and an extra car for each character.

PlayStation Portable

Note: All of the changes made for PAL regions were carried over to the PlayStation Portable release worldwide.

  • Exclusive Content: The PSP version features 2 exclusive battle arenas, The Tragic Kingdom and Fight Like an Egyptian, in place of Extinction Party and Jungle Rumble. There is one exclusive car for each character as well, replacing one from the other versions. However, both the PlayStation 2 and the PSP version can unlock each other's alternate goodies through a USB cable.
  • Boarded Windows: The windows inside Von Clutch's castle are covered with wooden boards, so you can't see through them (probably done due to technical limitations).
  • Wumpa Whip: The screen won't glow when you pick up Wumpa Whip.
  • Clashing Effects: The screen doesn't gain the dark blue filter when you're clashing.
  • First Person Shooting: When you're using a turret, the camera doesn't zoom in for better aim.
  • Turret Animations: Some characters like Crunch have a different animation for when they're using a turret.
  • Final Lap Music: Oddly, the bad version of the final lap music always plays during the second lap.
  • Missing Objects: Due to the more limited hardware, some things like lamp posts, speakers, signs, and people are missing. There are less outfits for the random passersby too.
  • Debug Camera: The debug camera cheat was removed entirely since the hardware would make it impossible to work properly.
  • Shadows: Crash is the only character in the game who has a shadow.
  • Music: The music is no longer attached to specific spots in hubs, so you always get to hear it at the same volume regardless of your position. This means Midway features the main theme (normally heard near the Von Clutch statue).
  • Co-op: The co-op mode forces you to stay clashed during the entire race, so there are only 4 cars.
