Crash's newest nemesis, a crabby alien named Nitros Oxide, just flew into this part of the galaxy looking for trouble. This cranky space invader thinks he's the fastest racer in the entire universe and has challenged the best driver of Crash's world to a race for the planet. Worst of all, if Oxide wins, he promises to turn the entire world into a concrete parking lot! It's obvious that Oxide isn't playing with a full crate of wumpa fruit. Even past villain Dr. Neo Cortex has taken Crash's side as an unlikely ally. Things must be really desperate. All of Crash's friends, and even a few of his past foes, think that they are the fastest driver in the world, and should be the hero racer to face Oxide and save the planet. But Oxide is a world-class speedster. So who will be his toughest competition? Looks like you'll have to wait and see! Hub 1: N. Santinty Beach ---------------------------------------- 1. Crash Cove Difficulty: 4/20 My Relic Time: 0:46.37 Relic I got: Platinum The first race! You will be surprised to know that theres a shortcut! When you jump over the first ramp into the pool, head for the low cliff beside the bridge. When you almost got out of the pool, jump for the cliff. If youre lucky, youll get there! When you drop down and go on the big bridge, stay on the left side. About two Karts away from getting onto dirt, jump left. Thats how youll go fast. 2. Roos Tubes Difficulty: 2/20 My Relic Time: 0:51.47 Relic I got: Platinum This is the second, but easiest track in the whole game! And there is a shortcut as well! The ending blue tubes part is where you slow down most. I prefer sliding. But Wait! Heres the short cut! When you get the last boost pad, jump onto flat ground and drive left onto dirt. Then head for the finish line!!! Going on dirt for too long will slow you down!!! 3. Mystery Caves Difficulty: 7/20 My Relic Time: 1:39.78 Relic I got: Sapphire H I HATE THIS TRACK! Except with Aku Aku. The fireballs are soooooooooooo annoying. NO SHORTCUTS?!!? This is the hardest track in the game for now. JUST GET THE RAMPS AND DODGE THE FIREBALLS!!! 4. Sewer Speedway Difficulty: 7/20 My Relic Time: 0:48.69 Relic I got: Gold Way easier than Mystery Caves, but I add a little difficulty cos it has lots of ways to choose from and confusing! There is a shortcut! When you get out of the three way pipes in the beginning, go right and you will see a hole in the wall. Get on the ramp and jump to the hole and get the booster, but wait! DONT GO PAST THE BRIDGE!!! GO DOWN THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BRIDGE FOR THE REAL SHORTCUT!!! Go forwards and youre back-further up the track. Go past the log and youll see another hole. Dont go into it. Youll go the wrong way! Ripper Roo-BOSS Difficulty: 6/20 Weapons: TNT Weaknesses: Missile, Turbo Boosts So, now youve seen some good racers, now youre going to verse the best racer for now-a BOSS! Its Roo Tubes and youre racing Ripper Roo! Hes not that tough though, but watch out for his TNTs! But if you do get one, just keep on jumping and youll get it off. Get two and BOOM!!! Just dont use a missile when hes putting down a TNT, it will hit the TNT instead! Hub 2: Lost Ruins --------------------------------------- 1. Coco Park Difficulty: 4/20 My Relic Time: 1:07.16 Relic I got: Gold Boring! This is about...neck and neck to Roos Pipes! I think it is harder than Roos Pipes because it was lots of turns(Did you know that Cocos Park is an oval!) and way Way WAY boring than Roos Pipes! Er...boring...getting very sleepy... (Snore,snore,snore) 2. Tiger Temple Difficulty: 9/20 My Relic Time: 0:48.52 Relic I got: Gold The hardest track yet. Not that hard though. Avoid the flame breathing Statues and only get the wumpa fruit boxes when you need to. There is an shortcut!!! When you get past the first Flame Statue corridor, youll see a door with an idol on top of it. Use a weapon(Sheild, Aku Aku, Missile, etc)to attack the door and it will open. Get all the wumpa fruit inside and you should get full Wumpa! Jump down and if youre no too further behind(No more than 3 racer in front of you)and youll come first(The past 1st racer will be turning around the corner!). 3. Dingo Canyon Difficulty: 10/20 My Relic Time: 0：58.25 Relic I got: Gold Harder than Tiger Temple still! Naughty dog is putting the tracks in order (from easiest to hardest except Coco Park and Blizzard Bluff). Avoid the blue Drops of water that interfere with you. If you hit on of them, youll go into a spin!!! It wont be nice to hit one if youre first! Sorry, no shortcuts! 4. Papus Pyramid Difficulty: 12/20 My Relic Time: 1：32.69 Relic I got: Sapphire The hardest track yet (I always say that). Way harder than Mystery cave because there are man-eating plants! In Relic Race, when you pass the first turbo boost and onto the bridge, jump left to get 4 extra boxes. There are three shortcuts! The first one is after the first man-eating plants area. When you see the yellow and black fences go between the first and second one on the left ton go on a platform and jump off. The second one can only be done if you didnt do the first. After the turn (where the yellow and black fences are)go on the turbo boost and go the the left corner and jump the a ledge where there is wumpa fruit and jump onto a bridge(familiar isnt it! It is the bridge in the beginning!). The third one is almost impossible without Aku Aku. Go on the ramp after the third plant area and jump sharply right. You should land on the part where you will be after the turn. Papu Papu-BOSS Difficulty: 14/20 Weapons: Red and Green Beakers Weaknesses: Bowling Bomb, Missiles Its Papu Papu! (He looks if hes going to squash his kart cos hes so fat!) You race him on Papus Pyramid and hes using beakers! His main weakness is bowling bombs as he throws his beaker high and will not do any defense. Use the shortcuts. Hub 3: Glacier Park -------------------------------- 1. Blizzard Bluff Difficulty: 8/20 My Relic Time: 1：07.34 Relic I got: Gold Whoa! Slidey! This place is snowing! The only main interference is the giant rock that rolls around. There are two shortcuts! The first one is when you start. Go left and go into a tunnel. This should save 0.5 seconds. The second one is past the first ice area. Go left instead of right and jump over water to get to the other side. 2. Dragon Mines Difficulty: 13/20 My Relic Time: 1：26.36 Relic I got: Sapphire The name Dragon Mines doesnt mean it has Dragons! The mine carts are very annoying as they can squash you! There is a shortcut, but a risk one. When you see the first train track, turn right into a tunnel where the carts are going. Keep going and youll see the twisty turn. Dont go down here! Go forwards and go off the track. You should be squashed about two times. (Get an Aku Aku before going in the tunnel to stop being squashed.) 3. Polar Pass Difficulty: 14/20 My Relic Time: 2：26.50 Relic I got: Gold Quite Hard! Especially with the stupid seals and sharp turns. Polar and Penta Penguin are the most efficient racers in this track. There is a shortcut!!! When you pass the straight way and go into a cave, there will be two seals. Avoid them both and go on the hill and jump over the wall(If you get hit by one of the seals, you will lose your speed and crash into the wall). 4. Tiny Arena Difficulty: 14.5/20 My Relic Time: 3：15.29 Relic I got: Gold Mud, mud, mud! This place is muddy!!! Avoid the Mud Pools!!! Oh, sorry, I was being a bit too mad. Sadly no shortcuts but there are some minor ones. Just dont slide on the turns! Jump instead! My Friend said that he thought Tiny Arena was the property of Tiny! Just avoid mud!!! Komodo Joe-BOSS Difficulty:16/20 Weapons: Explode-on-Impact TNTs, Nitros Weaknesses: Missiles, Aku Aku You race Komodo Joe in Dragon Mines. Its bad to use the shortcut as you will get squished a lot and will be slower. Dont get too close to him or hell use nitro! Just stay on the side. His weakness is Aku Aku because the track is a straight track; you can use the shortcut, destroy his weapons, and best of all, bash him up! Hub 4: Citadel City ----------------------------- 1. N. Gin Labs Difficulty: 16/20 My Relic Time: 1：29.58 Relic I got: Gold The Mad Mechanical Geniuss Lab! N. Gin is no the best racer to use on this track though. The only shortcut is to cut the corners of the U turn after the logs. The best way to win is to Cut some corners, get the boosts (including the ones the logs are rolling on but dont if its too risky)and best of all, use your weapons! 2. Cortex Castle Difficulty: 16.5/20 My Relic Time: 1:39.14 Relic I got: Gold Cortex doesnt have a castle (laughs)! Oh well, Naughty Dog sure have a lot of imagination! Avoid the boxes under the spiders, only get em when you really need it. There is a shortcut! When you go past the stairs, turn right to enter a blue room. When you enter, go on the ramp and jump left. If youre lucky, youll land on a bridge to the turbo jump. 3. Hot Air Skyway Difficulty: 17.5 My Relic Time: 2: 15.13 Relic I got: Gold Hard as! You can fall off anywhere! Dont get too close to the edge or youll fall off! Its a pain in the neck if you fall off when first! Now for the impossible shortcut! When you get past the straight way about 8 tenths along the way, youll go on a turbo boost. Go on it and jump left and if youre 100% lucky, youll get there to the end! (Believe me, Ive done it before)! 4. Oxide Station Difficulty: 20/20 My Relic Time: 2:16.22 Relic I got: Platinum The hardest track in the game! Its so hard, you wont be use to it in a thousand plays (It took me 2 tries to get used this horror). There is a shortcut but I CANT TELL YOU COS ONLY A FEW OF THE DEVELOPERS AND I KNOW THIS TRICK. I CANT SPREAD IT AROUND!!! Sorry to be so harsh, but thats the nature of the beast these days. Heres a helpful hint to cheer you up: Slide-Boost a lot and youll go faster! Pinstripe-BOSS Difficulty: 19.5/20 Weapons: Back-Bowling Bombs Weaknesses: Bowling Bombs, Shields Pinstripe in Hot Air Skyway! Its a very tough challenge but youll beat him. Just avoid his Bomb and hit him with your own (Bowling Bombs go through other Bowling Bombs). DO NOT USE SHORTCUT!!! Youll waste your time! And dont panic! Hub 5 --------------------------- 1. Slide Coliseum Difficulty: 16/20 My Relic Time: 1:30.08 Relic I got: Platinum The first track you have to slide a lot. Keep you eyes open, there are heaps of shortcuts! Jump over tyres and obstacles! Cut corners by going on grass! You only can do Relic Race on this one. Get all the boxes and lots of em are gotten by going through shortcuts! 2. Turbo Track Difficulty: 17.5/20 My Relic Time: 1:02.71 Relic I got: Platinum The slidey track would make everyone think it is hard! Actually, no! You can cut through grass; you cant jump over tyres in this level and slide around sharp U turns! Thats the hardest part: U turns! It really hard and youve slide a lot to get past these. Gem Cups ------------------------ Red Gem Cup Difficulty: 10/20 Character Unlockable: Ripper Roo Tracks: Crash Cove, Mystery Caves, Papus Pyramid, Blizzard Bluff Green Gem Cup Difficulty: 12/20 Character Unlockable: Papu Papu Tracks: Roos Tubes, Coco Park, Polar Pass, Cortex Castle Blue Gem Cup Difficulty: 14/20 Character Unlockable: Komodo Joe Tracks: Sewer Speedway, Tiger Temple, Dragon Mines, N.

The final Race, against Oxide! Hes Supa Tough and will not let anything get in his way. But if he does hit something, hell spin, but hell move forward at the same time. WHAT A CHEATER! HE EVEN STARTS THE RACE BEFORE YOU!!! I used the shortcut to win him. You need to beat him two times to win him. If you beat him, hell leave earth and youll see the credits and Scrapbook.

I wont answer questions asking for cheats or shortcuts as they are already listed in this FAQ Crashbandicoot380@hotmail.com: Wheres the T in Crash Cove? Answer: The T in crash cove is on a bridge. When you go into the pool near the beginning, youll see a low cliff beside a bridge. Before you get out of the water, jump for the low cliff. When you get there, turn right onto the bridge. Get the T thats on the right side of the bridge and fall into deep water. Then Aku Aku will turn you around. Wall of Fame -------------------------- Email me your best time to me!
