Good game for an arcade, wasted port to the N64

  • Excerpt: Cruis'n USA was probably a big hit when it first hit the arcade back in 1994, but the 1996 port to the N64 fared badly. Many people complained as the game was a direct port and therefore received no enhancements even though it was produced 2 years later on a console with more power.
  • Pros: Has a 2 player mode, Good amount of tracks and varied tracks
  • Cons: Poor graphics, bad soundtrack, poor AI

Cruis'n USA for N64

  • Excerpt: The N64 limitations meant Midway were never going to come close to producing a perfect port of the arcade checkpoint racer, Cruis'n USA, but to rub asphalt into the wounds, the title would be censored by Nintendo (at the least animals were removed), whilst bloody fighting games Mortal Kombat Trilogy...

This game would have been good in 1994, but the 1996 N64 port saw no improvements whatsoever.

  • Excerpt: I know this is one of the first N64 releases, but give me a break, half the screen is full of graphics popping out of nowhere. These are the worst graphics on N64, and with how fast it feels like your're going you might as well be playing Super Nintendo.

  • Excerpt: Imagine fast paced racing, graphics so sharp you almost can cut yourself, an amazing polygon game engine with no pop-up, accurate collision detection, fantastic music with memorable melodies and bass-pounding sound effects!

  • Excerpt: When this game first came out on the arcade I thought it was the best game ever, and for its time, it was. About 18 months later we had bigger and better technology in the arcades and Cruis'n had only just hit N64.

  • Excerpt: This is the only review on this game for the simple reason that i was the only person who was stupid enough to get this game! The cars are square and unrealistic the game play is shockingly bad and the graphics really will make you laugh. All the scenery just pops up out of the blue!

  • Summary: Ich hätte Cruis´n World (wegen Nostalgischen Erinnerungen) diesem hier vorgezogen, aber es war nicht erhältlich. Nunja, soweit hab ich aber ne gute Zeit mit diesem Titel hier gehabt, es könnte besser sein, aber es macht durchaus Spass! :) Nur 1000 Wii Points fand ich waren dennoch etwas zu viel!
