I had fun with this game. The controls were hard at first but got the hang out of it eventually to where I could come in 1-3rd place in order to move onto the next track. I was able to get the lowest score on all of the tracks except one. I liked having the various cars to chose from but the Supra worked best for me in regards to the turns, etc. I also had the highest amount in damage too. It doesn't take you long to go through this game and there's another a lot of replay value with it either. I'd say it's good for a rent if you like racing games but I wouldn't keep it as it would get too boring too quick being limited to the same tracks over and over again.
I personally liked this game because it is the one game that if you rent or buy it, you know exactly what to expect. I also thought that it worked very well with the sterring wheel and it is pretty fun with two players. Sure you can beat the game in a few hours but if you want the arcade feel in your home, then why not rent this game?
Cruis'n is a standard checkpoint racing game in the style of the old Nintendo 64 games Cruis'n USA and Cruis'n the world. It's more like the second one I mentioned, because of the wheelies and trick system. I can say this game works well with the Wii wheel but controls weren't the problem. The problems start with the long load times. I grew up with cartridge games and any load time sucks but most Wii games load fairly quickly. This one did not. Also, it seems buggy and I'd get caught by invisible walls. One more thing is that I couldn't seem to draft the other cars. This made it difficult to win races. You can upgrade your car but even the best car fully upgraded will get passed like it's not moving. This is a bare minimum game. Only 11 tracks and about 8 cars. There's not much to do. Once I unlocked all the tracks, I saw no reason to continue playing. With the buggy walls and unforgiving A.I., I see no reason to even rent this game. I rated this game a 3 because it works at the very least but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
