This actually looks pretty good but I mean...not exactly forty bucks good in 2021 lol.

Can't wait for it to go on sale though.

This looks pretty badass, I think I'm gonna get it.

Are the Finish line swimsuit girls and guys back?

Finished Cruis'n Tour on Easy and Normal as well as the first cup on Hard. Of the 24 tracks, I'd say two our duds (the 5 arcade original tracks are good too). I've run into a few bugs with vehicles warping ahead when clipping into an object and a weird one where the Unicorn tends to have trouble on a ramp made of stairs on one map, but otherwise it's been smooth sailing. This continues to be an easy recommend. It's just a fun, dumb time.

I LOVE it. Fast responsive game, just super fun. Reminds me of burnout 2. I will be playing this a lot.

Visuals are really good overall, sometimes crazy good when the colors and reflections are all going at once. Sometimes not so good, but it's fun, who cares! You can nitpick the textures and polygons but it looks great in a simplistic kind of way.

And yeah it appears to be 1080p with no AA. 60fps holds well, there are some dips but nothing crazy. The main sacrifice from the arcade version seems to be shadows, judging off youtube vids I watched before today.

If you've been bitching about no arcade games get this game for heaven sake.

I picked it up and had a quick go. It’s probably got the worst title screen music I’ve ever heard in a game, it’s abhorrent on the ears. The game itself is fun though, it’s not OutRun 2 or Daytona but it scratches an arcade racer itch well enough.

SpongebobSquaredance SpongebobSquaredance Yeah I’m sure. The vibe is completely different to me. I wrote: it LOOKS generic and bland. Just like most other “modern” arcade racers, no style just screaming colors and ugly reflections.
Reminds me of the Daytona USA version on Dreamcast; I didn’t like that either.

I quite like the cheesy Cruis'n title song. Although the game is not on the level of arcades greatest racers I am glad I got this day one to enjoy it. Going to try co op with my son this weekend so we can grab a bunch of keys (unlockables)while playing.

Reviewed by Luke Reilly on Nintendo Switch.

"It may look like a 20-year-old energy drink commercial crossed with the best-looking Dreamcast game never made, but Cruis'n Blast is an endearingly earnest arcade racing time capsule filled with goofy, crowd-pleasing vehicles and a small assortment of zany tracks. However, it's also an extremely lean package that struggles to disguise its origins as a wafer-thin, five-year-old arcade cabinet. It's fast, fun, and eye-catchingly daft but take care diving in, because it's only ankle-deep."
