By Michael Parker on September 29, 2012
Due to the title of this release there is some disappointment and confusion. While this called "Cruis'n" it's actually a home port of the first "Fast & Furious" Arcade. Midway lost the rights to F & F before the game was released which is why the "Crus'n" name was used. That game was introduced in 2004, which is why the graphics seem dated. Other complaints about the laughing, girls, etc, these are all in the actual arcade game, it wasn't specifically added for this game.
The game itself is a pretty good translation. It takes some getting used to if you are used to playing in the arcade with a gas pedal but you get used to it. My only complaint is the loading times seem excessive for modern console. If you like the F & F arcade game you'll like this. End of story. I've personally played for hours and it's quite enjoyable.

Anyone familiar with Midway's Cruis'n series in the arcades and the Nintendo 64 will find that Cruis'n for the Wii retains almost none of the fun gameplay elements that the previous games in the series possessed. Cruis'n bears little resemblance to the aforementioned games, as it features some incredibly dated graphics, a static interface, and above all, a barrage of technical issues. These technical issues range from long load times and a variety of bugs and glitches to be found among the boring and all-too similar race tracks that are featured here. What is also worth noting is that the Wii-mote controls aren't actually half-bad here and are pretty responsive overall, but they can't save Cruis'n from the fate that it's been given. All in all, Cruis'n may be worth a look or a rental for Wii owners looking for an arcade racer or fans of Midway's Cruis'n series, but everyone else can easily avoid it.

The Cruis'N games for the arcades and the N64 were some of the most entertaining race games ever created in my opinion. I have fond memories of playing those games for hours on end, so I was really looking forward to this newer version to play on my Nintendo Wii system. The game was designed by Eugene Jarvis, the same fellow who brought the Cruis'N games to the world back in the 90's, so I had high hopes that this one would be pretty great given the power of the Wii compared to the old N64, but sadly this one seemed to be a little bit of a letdown compared to the older games. It's still a rather enjoyable arcade racer but it doesn't have the same zany feel as the old Cruis'N games had about them.

One of the biggest issues for me are the controls; They are very touchy, erratic and difficult to control. It takes a lot of effort to handle the maneuvers of your car and to keep it on the road no matter which settings you choose and only improve after you buy numerous wheel upgrades. The graphics also have some annoying glitches and bugs here and there as well that can be distracting at times, and the colors throughout a lot of the game seem a little bit bland. But despite those drawbacks, the game is still enjoyable enough to keep you preoccupied for an hour or two now and then. The graphics could also be better and they have an older 90's look and feel to them, but then again, I guess that is to be expected since this is actually an adaption of the Fast and the Furious arcade game which was released back in 2004, but I thought that they would have at least tried to spruce them up a bit for this release. It seems that Midway just slapped the name Cruis'N on it since they lost the license to the F&F name and ported it over to the Wii.

The game is pretty much unplayable until you grind for upgrades. and you can't grind for upgrades in multiplayer. It's a game that can be fun with practice, and you'll need a lot of practice. The game controls like melted butter.

My favorite arcade driving games are Burnout 2 & 3 - you crash like real life, the point is to avoid hitting anything (except AI cars), but celebrates your mistakes w/spectacular results so you don't mind. Crashing can happen a lot since there's always plenty of traffic to run into & they do have great AI traffic that try to get out of your way which can make you crash more. It's real, but it's intention is fun unlike Need for Speed series which takes themselves too seriously & the performance upgrades can be a pain.
Other driving games I have rented: Excite truck, Hot wheels, Cars, NFS: Carbon & Emergency Heroes.
Excite truck -
has better graphics, one of the best, great controls, but you spend 1/3 of the time in the AIR. "Look, ma, I'm flying, I'm FLYING!!!" It's an arcade, yes, but no truck can do 1080 spins in the air or be 500 ft. in the air & land w/o a problem. The driving while on the ground was superb though. Several camera angles. The mini game where you go through gates is the only time you're not constantly in the air & it's much more realistic. Has great speed feel & content feeling that you're going to crash any second. Also has invincible cards so you can drive through trees or pick things up to change the landscape so you can go into the air more & rings in the air. Definitely not a sim other then how the truck responds to the environment on the track or when hitting things.
Hot Wheels -
easy to control once you get used to the tight controls in about 10 min, fun tracks, but only has the camera behind the car though if you flip, the camera flips with you like as if you were in the car.
