From N64 cars to Wii bikinis, how has the series evolved?
a 10 year old game can look better than the wii version.
Look, when you have to start comparing your graphics against a 10 year old system things aren't lookin' up for you. It's a sad state of affairs that wii can't match the gamecube in alot of ways, let alone this... Please. I loved when that PSP game looked better than the Wii version... what was that game? It was like Alien syndrom I think. too funny.
That's what every racing game should do to make themselves look better.
Wii sucks. It's a fad that middle America keeps supporting.
well if anything this shows that it's not the Wii's fault but that of the developer. Thou you guys don't listen for you think you are the superior race... or something like that. Play the games not the consoles!
they are messing with the tv settings for the Wii version...those guys for N64 are paying Gametrailers LMAO!!!!/sarcasm
How long is the Wii going to hold up with sh!tty games like this? One after another. I cant wait until the day comes the Wii console shows its true colors. A last gen console with a new controller.
Crazy Taxi looked better than the Cruis'n game on wii.
Yeah... it is sad. I play my gamecube more then my Wii and the N64 even more then that! The Wii gives a good reason for it being backward compatible. My 360 though... I never look back. Once I get more money then I will get a PS3 and I'm sure I won't look back there either.
It's weird... this game might be better on the N64
Mario 64 is a lot more fun then Super Mario Galaxy in my opinion, Legend of Zelda on N64 (Oscarina of time) was better then the new Zelda, the Gamecube Mario Party was better then the Wii Mario Party, Snowboarding 1080 was better on N64 then gamecube, Wave Race was better on N64 then Wii, and Mario Kart 64 and super smash brothers was better on the N64 then the gamecube. What gives??? These may just be my opinions but... I'm sure other people have similar thoughts.
i agree with all those except GALAXY and SMASH BROS, those 2 i found more fun then the predecessor..
but i guess cause sometimes we remember things to be way better then they really were so we overhype ourselves for the sequal..
but i guess its all perspective.
okay.. Crap games are well.. CRAP.. but in a way they are good.. they are good enough that these DEVS put the little effort they can into the wii.. does anyone remember PS2? there were a lot of CRAPTASTIC games out there for PS2 when it first was released... even though the library is not strong as if the games are great... is it good to get these games cause then at least you can expand the library.. this will sell to people that don't read reviews and provide money to Devs and they make better game in BEST CASE SENARIO.. in worst case senario the games totally bomb (which they prolly will) but just cause they are available then parents would buy the console for their kids and then the kids will actually wants some good games.
and lets face it all systems get their share of crap games.. the wii just gets more cause everyone wants a WII and therefore you have the best chance to sell for the wii, and its cheap to develop for.. When WIIWARE comes out i'm sure we will get less crap...on dvds, they will come to wiiware cheap.. i mean if Crusin was worth 5BUX.. i would say.. sure looks like crap but for 5 bux you can't go wrong, you just play a bit and let it go.. (crusin sux.. so its a bad example but you know what i mean)
I mean 360 has BOMBERMAN ACT ZERO.. winning formula goes hardcore and bombs.. (no pun intended), PS3 has games like LAIR.. which wasn't horrible but way beyond expectations.. but honestly did anyone.. ANYONE here have HIGH EXPECTATIONS for cruisin? i don't think so..
BAD GAMES COME AND GO.. WE ONLY REMEMBER THE GREAT GAMES!
Sorry dude, you would have had a point if this game was some odd ball crap game. This is Crusin' USA dude, it's pretty much an icon in gaming. The fact that this is the best the wii can do at this moment in time for this game (or the developers feel it is) really needs to make Nintendo's fanbase sit up and go "WTH!!??!!"
It's not like this is an odd occurance or something, this type of crap's been plaguing the wii and it's hardcore base since day one. I mean, come on! This is frikgen Crusin' USA.... 'ACKING LOOK AT IT!!!... IN 2008?! You've got to be kidding me.
I'm sorry but I jsut had to say it and it's true. The wii is a complete farce and I have now idea how any gamer that's male and above 12 years old could possibly support such blatant crap.
I don't mean to be harsh or come across like I'm trolling but this is what a trully feel. Nintendo now banks on gimmicks, with periperals and their ads, to keep them going. This is jsut very sad to me, I mean this is Nintendo! What the hell?! Has it really come to this with Nintendo? Does it's fanbase really enjoy last gen stuff they could have played on the PS2 or xbox? really!?!
That could be the saddest thing I have seen all day.
I'm not even kidding.
common developer tactic for 2007/2008? Put your old shovelware games on the Wii to Wiin biig Moneii.
Developed for the GC? no problem, use the very same game, print Wii on the box and off you goo, another wii sales hit. Remember to tack on some Weemote control stuff.
Still some trash left? great! make it crawl on the wii regardless how bad and hope some of the braindead Wii buyers pick it up cause obviously they can't spot a bad game at all and buy anything with Wii on the box...
That blows. The weird thing is I picked up a Gamecube around 3 years ago, near then end of it's life cycle and I found most multi plat games looked better on the Cube than they did on the PS2...and even better on the original Xbox. So why, now that Nintendo finally has a successful system again, are devs making games that look worse than anything I ever recall seeing on the Cube? It doesn't make sense.
I'm glad I bought my son a wii because I was able to give him my entire Cube library as well as a wii-play with the system and he was happy as a pig in sh*t. Also I can pretty much pick up any wii game off the shelf and be confident that it will be appropriate for a youngster. That said, I'm seriously disappointed with what's been going on with the wii lately. This is just one of the worst examples I've seen of developers trying to cash in on a quick fad by releasing crappy unfinished software. Weak.
The Wii sucks. It sucks sooooo bad. I'm sorry, go ahead and click the disagree if you don't like my statement but seriously I can't express how much I dislike Nintendo's latest lazy attempt in the console market. Gone are the days of the wonderful N64. If I want interactive motion sensing for my hand, I'll go jack off in the shower...
The Wii can suck the chrome off a bumper
This is Very Sad For The Wii
I really think these devs should be punished. No wonder why Midway is having such a hard time. This is their Wii next-gen game while BlackSite (Thought not that terrible) and Hour of Victory their PS3/360 next-gen game. They really should stop rushing their games and start caring. UT3 is the only really good and big game they have and even it isn't selling as good as hoped.
As I've said before, Midway should stop working on multiple weak-mediocre games at once and instead, put all of it's money, time and effort into making next-gen Mortal Kombat a really worthy MK that can go head to head against Street Fighter 4. Just like MK2 vs SF2.
Midway wont get my dollar for this peice of trash. When the game sells 500 copies they may realize you ahve to try a litle harder to sell games. But somehow this is the Wii's fault and not the maker of the game. PS3 fanboys make sick to my stomach.
For the haters I want to point out 2 things. One the game sells for 29.99 , and the other is Nintendo didnt make this game. Excite Truck and the NFS series on Wii prove it can do better than this but those games are also almost twice the price.
