crash tag team racing

          Put simple to describe this game, imagine Crash Bandicoot driving a car (that would be rather destructive), now imagine two cars being glued to each other (literally). Now try to imagine racing while trying to avoid: being eaten by dinosaurs, being crushed by falling cars, being eaten by sharks, being killed by a Yeti, falling off of the track (that can happen), falling into a lava pool, falling into a pool of toxic waste, having your car blow up in your face and more.

Here's the story.

          "Ebenezer Von Clutch, a German cyborg, has created a highly dangerous racing theme park. However, the park's Power Gems and Von Clutch's Black Heart Power Gem has been stolen. He sets up a special event for his park in which anybody who finds his Black Power Gem acquires the ownership of his park, but nobody is interested except for Pasadena O' Possum. During the last day that Von Clutch can keep on functioning without his Black Heart Power Gem, Doctor Neo Cortex is chasing Crash, Coco and Crunch Bandicoot near a roadway that leads to Von Clutch's Motor-world. They crash through the gates of the Motor-world, and Von Clutch persuades them to enter. At first, Von Clutch's proposal did not catch the Bandicoot's attention, but when Cortex decides to help just so he could acquire a new base for planning schemes to crush the Bandicoots, Crash, Coco and Crunch have no choice but to find the Black Power Gem before the Cortex's do. At first, they must find the Power Gems needed to power other sections of the Motor-world and one by one, Crash finds them.
         Crash had just collected the gem in Tomb Town to gain access to the final section, Astro Land. Cortex enters the scene with bandages on his head shouting in frustration "Curses, some evil force is ruining my evil plan. Curses! Curses! Curses!!. Coco finds a link between all the stolen Power Gems in which there was a trail of Wumpa Whip at the scene of every stolen Power Gem. Crash was drinking Wumpa Whip at the time, so everyone blames him. Willy Wumpa Cheeks out of frustration for their stupidity then gives himself up and pointed out that he is the perpetrator but at first, nobody believed him (except Von Clutch who went into denial) until he revealed the Black Gem in his bag before running off towards Astro Land indicating that Crash is innocent.
Crash soon finds him about to blast off with the Black Gem in a rocket (which is actually a Rocket Simulator attraction) and pulls a lever to stop it from supposedly taking off. Crunch picks Willie up by his nose and Pasadena demands that Willie return the Power Gem to which Willie refuses to do. Cortex then shoots Willie from a simple flying machine which killed him and then targets the Bandicoots and fired the trigger, but Crunch pulls up a piece of metal from the ground to defend the others. Then Crash throws a chicken into the motor of the machine which causes it to fly uncontrollably and off the Motor-world. .The Bandicoots are given the park's ownership as the reward but Coco decides to return it to Von Clutch, only to learn that he had stopped functioning. Pasadena put her hands in to Von Clutch's back, making two doors open in his chest. Meanwhile, Crash is drinking some Wumpa Whip from Willie's nose and accidentally engulfs something. He coughs up the Black Gem, which somewhat lands conveniently inside Von Clutch. He comes back to life and starts singing, giving unlimited free passes to the Motor-world to the bandicoots from then on. Von Clutch pats Crash on the back numerous times. Crash then pats him on the back and the gem falls out of Von Clutch's body. He then rushes back to the car he had at the beginning, smiles and drives away by himself before anyone could take action against him. Leaving Coco and Crunch standing there. Crunch shrugs then the story ends."

 Here's a list of characters
  • "Crash Bandicoot - More immature than before, enjoys torturing other people and creatures, especially chickens. He is trying to find the Power Gems in order to prevent Cortex from making a new base in the park.
  • Doctor Neo Cortex - Even shorter, he is trying to find the Power Gems in order to own the park and make a new base.
  • Doctor N.Gin - Now he has a gray skin and blue hair. Now he seems to be masochist and have a little feminine side.
  • Coco Bandicoot - She is depicted more preppy and a bit of "daddy girl" tendencies.
  • Nina Cortex - More Gothic, she likes violence and sadness and also, like Crash, acts a bit immature at times. She never talks in the cutscenes.
  • Crunch Bandicoot - Now has a personality very similar to Mr. T, including the Mr. Crunch costume.
  • Pasadena O'Possum - A country girl who has a crush on Crash.
  • Ebenezer Von Clutch - A German cyborg. He lost his Black Heart Power Gem(a gem that acts as a heart to him) and now proposed a challenge: whoever finds his gem, will be the new owner of his park.
  • Willie Wumpa Cheeks - The Von Clutch mascot. Without anyone knowing, he stole Von Clutch's gem and escape to Astro Land.
  • Chick Gizzard Lips - The chicken commentator who talks the most in his reports. He acts serious as a human report.
  • Stew - Chick's co-commentator. He also keeps changing his hair or hat. He acts a little crazy in the cutscenes, saying wrong things at the wrong times."
