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.
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

This Wii game is fun for all ages. My four year old even enjoys racing and being able to unlock cars and choose the car color is tons of fun for him.Published on April 11, 2013 by lynn
This game is probably very really realistic of how hard it is to control a race car. Although the courses are wacky. For example driving in China Town NY. Read morePublished on February 29, 2012 by DiscoScribe
