Lucas M. Thomas writes for IGN:
"Cruis'n USA was a poor game when it was first released for the Nintendo 64 over a decade ago, and it's still a poor game today. Though nostalgic memories might make our minds recall a more compelling title, this racer is simply shallow, too straightforward and technically flawed to be truly worth an investment of 1000 Wii Points. That said, though, spending 10 bucks on a download of this version of Cruis'n is likely a more wise decision than spending 30 on the recent physical disc abomination that Midway pushed onto store shelves a few months ago. Stay away from that one at all costs."
