  1. If you liked the previous cruisn' games, you'll like this one as well.

    Only fun for a very brief moment really, and once that moment passes you're left with a very bland, very dated racer.
  3. Dull, unenjoyable and incredibly shoddy, failing to deliver even the most basic of racing thrills.
  4. Playing Exotica requires very little skill or finesse, but for the casual gamer who doesn't want to commit lots of time to racing a track, that's not really a bad thing.
  5. Oh, I forgot to mention the horribly painful control and the truly pathetic graphics. Yep, definitely a Cruis'n title.
  6. This is easily one of the worst racers for the Nintendo 64.
  7. Consider, if you will, a racing game in which it's not even necessary to touch the control stick while driving in order to finish a race.

    I loved this game in the arcades back in the day. It was pretty silly but good fun.

    Wow I loved it in the arcade and love it on N64, anyone not liking it don't like wacky racing games that even my 3 year old enjoys. I Wow I loved it in the arcade and love it on N64, anyone not liking it don't like wacky racing games that even my 3 year old enjoys. I have two racing wheels with built in rumble and peddles and this game rocks. Love the vehicles, tracks, and music. Only thing on N64 the graphics aren't quite on par with the arcade but I still love it! A++ Full Review »
