  1. Here we have a lackluster game, made without respect for the reputation of the series, just aiming to deceive players desperately in need for speed.
  2. 30
    We wish we could say that diehard Midway racing fans will get enjoyment out of this one, but we're that exact crowd, and we'd go back to "Rush 2042" long before booting this up again.
  3. Unless you fancy the idea of paying $30 for a hacked-together port of an old arcade game that wasn't any good to begin with, you can safely ignore Cruis'n.
  4. The longevity in single player is pitiful and only slightly better in multiplayer, but not by much, while the gameplay feels like a severely downgraded version of Burnout and the presentation is simply atrocious.
  5. Games this low-rent and unapologetically busted only come around a few times a year, but don't bother savoring this rare experience - Cruis'n is undoubtedly the worst Wii racer to date, and another blight on a franchise that has long suffered in home conversions.
  6. The worst Wii game I've had the misfortune to play and a huge disappointment for Wii owners desperate for more arcade racing action.
  7. It's the worst-looking Wii game I've ever played and frankly that takes some effort. It's no fun to play either.

    This game is really fun and really enjoyable just like it's arcade counterpart. It has a some awesome gameplay that you get to do stunts and such. It really have some excellent controls and maybe the best of any racing game. Also it has some great music and some good sounds but some of them can get annoying at times. I don't really mind of lack of extra features because I'm an arcade fan people who played this maybe never been to a arcade before. I don't like the loading times and some of the glitches also don't forget about the dropping framerate because it drops sometimes. But overall this is a really fun game that anyone will enjoy even for arcade fans. It also have a two player mode that hypes up the fun. It may have bad graphics and loading times but sometimes I'm a bit on the retro side and that is the reason I bought this game so if you play the arcade verison then you should love the home version of the game.

    It's just... racing. Nothing really to it. Just... Why? It's not very fun for me, an avid Mario Kart fan. Some will like this, but just... not me. Why? Full Review »

    The game is a holy cookie with Midway's dick hot cream. Is really beautiful and enjoyable, it reminds our afternoons playing with 4 in our N64, every game that is rescued from that times is a masterpiece. I don't care all the issues it can have. I'll pay a fortune for it. Full Review »
