    Cruis’n Blast is arcade racing in its absolute best form imaginable, and if you want a racing game that leaves you grinning like an idiot the entire time you’re playing it, I couldn’t recommend it any more highly.

    If you’ve played previous Cruis’n games before, you know what you’re getting into. I had an absolute blast playing Cruis’n Blast and highly recommend it for any speed junkies that need a quick, fun fix on their Switch.

    The racing in Cruis’n Blast truly reflects the game’s arcade roots, focusing on fun over-the-top thrills over any sort of realism. As long as you are okay with that, you’ll likely have as a good of a time with this Switch version as I did. I do wish there was support for online multiplayer as not everyone is going to have willing players in their vicinity, but I guess if a casual player was going to join in on any racing game without Mario in it, it might be this one. It’s colorful, silly, fast, and stylish. Raw Thrills did just about everything it could to make this home version the ultimate way to go Cruis’n, and it certainly does a good job of scratching an itch.

    There’s no doubt that Cruis’n Blast is going to serve a relatively niche audience, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The sheer spectacle on display combined with vast opportunity for technical skill makes for an incredibly engaging arcade racing game that focuses on letting the player have pure, unfiltered fun. It’s a shame that there isn’t any form of online functionality to provide a little extra meaning to the experience, since that little extra motivation could’ve elevated Cruis’n Blast from a good game to a great game.

    Cruis’n Blast shoves players kicking and screaming to the time when the Dreamcast was king, racing was purely about things blowing up for no reason, and unicorns had great engine noises. And I love it for that.

    Cruis'n Blast presents an arcade racing formula that's exciting at first but quickly wears thin due to its lack of challenge or need for skill. That being said, it can still be enjoyable for a few rounds of old-school racing entertainment with friends.

    An otherwise decent racing game, terrible AI choices, and rubber-banding cripple Cruis’n Blast. A real shame.

No, this isn’t a realistic racing sim, or a deep, 3rd person adventure game. It’s a straight up arcade racer, nothing but fun and speed. Drift, wreck your opponents, collect cash and keys. Unlock new cars, do crazy stunts. It’s a must buy if you love arcade racers. It’s beautifully done, graphics look great, especially for the underpowered Switch. Great game to blow off steam or play with family and friends.

    We don’t have enough games like this anymore, and I’m glad to own Cruis’n Blast. It’s a fantastic port!

    Cruis’n Blast
    Fun while it lasts
    Cruisn blast is one of the most fun arcade racing games ive played in a while, here you can go through the cups, do a single race or up to 4 friends can play together… going through the cups youl lunlock tracks, youll unlock vehicles to drive.. and this game is crazy, you can race a firetruck, a ufo, a dinosaur…
    Blasting through these linear races, jumping off of ramps, doing tricks, grabbing money and keys to unlock more cars… all while crazy stuff is happening around you, yettis, zebras, storms… this game is an absolute blast.. and then. Its not.
    Sadly theres just far too few of content.. theres seemingly 24 tracks here as theres 6 cups with 4 tracks each, however more than half of the tracks are exactly the same except now its raining or now the zebras and giraffes are dinos… so it only took me a little less thn 2 hours to be over the game.. the racing doesn’t really feel like racing with how small these tracks are, you never feel like you have enough time to catch up in harder difficulties as youre always starting in the back of the pack and gameplay wise theres not much to do in race, sure ramps give you a little boost, but doing tricks seemingly does nothing, theres no way to regain used up nitros.. once you’ve been through a track once or twice the novelty wears out due to how shallow the gameplay is..
    That being said I loved the 2 hours I did have with this game..
    For a deep deep discount this is a must have for any racing fans collection
    I give Cruis’n Blast
    a 7.5/10

Cruis’n Blast, rather than looking to make strides to evolve or reinvent itself in any remote way, comes to the Switch fully embracing everything (and I do mean this in the best complimentary way) stupidly ridiculous about its lineage and puts it right in your lap whether you love or hate it. For anyone more remotely interested in realism or tight control mechanics you can just keep moving, this won’t be an experience for you. However, if the thought of racing with your neon-lit and juiced-up triceratops as you plow through your opponents, doing backflips and barrel rolls over ramps along the way, sounds plain AWESOME this will be your jam. The adherence to even goofy-ass things from yesteryear like every car surface being highly reflective, something nobody would ever do now but that was all the rage back in the day, is a sign that this port was made with respect and love. Will it deliver hours of entertainment? That would depend on you and whether your goal is just to “beat the game”, which could take only a few hours, or whether you plan to enjoy unlocking and tricking out everything, sucking in the goofiness of it all either solo or with some friends. While not for everyone, I absolutely respect the love and care put in by the developers to honor the essence of Cruis’n, no matter how ridiculous some of it may be to more modern (or simply more “hardcore”) gamers.
