Metachronos overall score = 2.3 / 10

Positive
- At least the Wii Remote controls are responsive

Negative
- Fantastically ugly game
- Car handling is extremely dodgy
- Very little content
- Catch-up artificial intelligence is pretty annoying
- Sound effects often aren't where they should be
- This is an arcade game

Many a quick and dirty cash-in has trudged its way onto the Wii in the time since publishers began to exclaim, "Holy smokes! People are buying this thing! Get games on system make go money now!" Cruis'n ranks highly amongst the most egregious of these games. Cruis'n is essentially Midway's attempt to unearth the consistently mediocre arcade driving franchise the company used to port to consoles regularly back in the N64 days. A fitting notion, given that Cruis'n actually looks a little bit like an N64 game that's been cranked to a resolution it never should have and plays like something that would have felt like an ancient relic years ago, let alone now. Audio is more comically awful than anything else. Sound effects infrequently exist. You get all the basic tire screeches and bangs of cars hitting one another, but environmental objects are much spottier. Most times, you'll wreck through a whole series of objects and hear no sound at all, which is a bit surreal. The soundtrack consists of precisely the sort of trite arcade driving game jams you'd expect while the announcer sounds a little bit like a soft-core porn actress on her fifth gimlet making a feeble attempt to sound alluring as she gasps through track titles like "L.A. Ghetto" and "Race Wars." Ultimately, Cruis'n offers nothing of any value. It's short on modes, cars, visual fidelity, workable driving mechanics, and most of all, fun. Skip it.
