Okay... let me explain this digital crack rating here...

Cruis'n USA, in my views is a game that is soooo bad it is good. Now others may disagree. To them, it may be so bad it is horrible.

When playing it, you are suppose to have fun. Laugh at the camp.

Humourous things:
* Every obstacle is cardboard. That large tree? Flattens when you hit it. That Street Lamp? Flattens when you hit it. It can get funny after a while
* The campy things that get screamed when you hit another car. Sometimes it is worth crashing just to hear those screams.
* You can take out a train... and win.
* The cops do not seem to care about you, and the seven other racers endangering the lives of many of the people on the road.

I mean, yes, the Pop In is so horrid, it kind of earned a top place in hatred of N64 games because of this.

That just means you need to react a lot quicker.

I remember when I was in my teens. I would play this game, because I could eat or drink with my other hand. I would have analog up/down shift my gears, analog left/right to steer, and Z for gas. Anything else was not important to the game play. It is an awesome memory to have a game, that I could eat an entire pizza and play without any major issues.

The Red Woods and Chicago tend to be the levels that everybody hates. Generally, once you are familiar with how they work and operate--there is no issue winning them.

My favourite level has always been Alapalacia.

Though, what pisses me off, is in neither the GameCube Control, nor the Classic Control, can you hit C-Up, C-Right, and C-Down simultaneousness to unlock the Jeep, School Bus and Police Car.

Anyways, this game also featured an upgrade system. Where your vehicle would have its engine upgraded (with its colour to point out how much) when you beat difficulties 1, 3 and 5.

I remember when I was about seventeen, I just stayed up a few nights, just to max out all my cars.


This is case, where the game was soooo bad.... I just started enjoying it for its camp value. Typically laughing and making fun of it as I go along.
