I had no idea there was that much silicon in Japan. But it only makes the balance that much more impressive, doesn't it?

Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

'Cause Cruisin' the USA is so last year! GRADE: C+

So, the sequal to Cruis'n The USA is here. What made this arcade game develop a sequal that is basicly the same thing, except that you can run over giraffes, and zebras all over the world? Well, let's take a gander down the ol' highway, shall we?

Cruis. the world, the game

Cruis'n The World offers the arcade gamer a new feel for extreme racing. For example, you can pull a pop-a-wheelie Red Neck Style, or do a flip off a speed bump. Or, my personal favorite, you can run through paper-mashé looking zebras with no abandon.

Also, you have a wide selection of cars, ranging from the Lamborghini Diablo to the crappiest 3-whelled piece of trash that's even so dumb do have been created by Nintendo and everything in between, like a transport trailer to become the king of the road, redneck style, or just a normal family sedan that cruises the highway you've already went down 50 thousand times! No replay value, just new cars.

Aside from the incredibly wide selection of cars, you get to travel to 14 new tracks in 11 countries, including the ol' USA, Africa, Australia, and even the moon. The moon, however, is the exact same track as the Australia track, with different tilesets, backgrounds, and images. The grass is replaced by rocks, and the gravity is the Earth's gravity. I needed floating space cars, not just pieces of road trash.

Aside from that, the game is fairly good, besides the crappy old-gen graphics. You can see how badly the grass is made when you travel through them, they look like something my cat coughed up, my dog chewed up, and digested, and then pooed. It's not very pretty...

Also, you can pretty much do anything that you'd normally get your @ss busted for by the cops. You can pop a-wheely over an innocent car that always tends to drive in your way, or attempt to run over innocent bystanders who are so ugly, they deserve to die.

All in all, this game is overly horrible. It deserves to stay in that crappy bowling alley beside the Drug Mart, and never leave that place again. You should never pay the original 50$ for it, but more like 5$, and then you'd even get ripped off. If you happen to receive this game as a gift... throw it away, burn it, do whatever you can, never play it, or you will catch a severe case of the Red Neck Road Rage.
