For the most part, this racer delivers many hours of challenging fun, responsive controls, and a variety of familiar characters and power-ups. While Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix is curiously missing the voices of all these iconic characters, which is a shame, but it's overall a fun and surprisingly deep kart racer. It isn't just deep in its vast roster selection and the power-ups you can use per driver, slime moves, and kart upgrades, but there's a lot of selection in modes, too. For solo gaming, there's Slime Grand Prix, Free Race, Time Trial (ghost racers), Arena (deathmatch-style), and Challenges. With the latter, there are 42 challenges to indulge in, such as beating times, hitting targets, collecting items, avoiding obstacles, performing stunts, and engaging in boss races (and not all of them are accessible until you complete earlier tasks). Multiplayer modes range from local play (2, 3, or 4 players) or online (random matchmaking or play with friends). Also be aware you'll need an account for online play (like a Nintendo Switch Online membership).
While it might not seem like a big deal, having no voices in Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix -- from these familiar characters, no less -- is a huge miss in the production department. Thankfully, there's a lot more to like in this game. Players of all ages and skill levels will no doubt fall for the charm of this accessible and engaging kart racer. And if you ever wondered who might win in a race from your favorite Nickelodeon shows, this game could possibly answer that question.
