1 Star out of 4
(Review of N64 version)

Cruis'n Exotica has a simple theme: fun over realism. The game features some of the most bland, over-idealized tracks ever seen on the Nintendo 64 (check out the texturing mess in the dinosaur track), but the exotic locations make it a little interesting.

Korea, Tibet, India, Holland, Ireland, Amazon, Hong Kong, Las Vegas, Atlantis, Alaska, and Mars serve as hosts to the various races, each with obstacles (planes, dinos) appropriate to the location.

The Cruis'n Challenge mode has the most to offer. Pay attention at the beginning of a race. You might see instructions on how to earn nitrous oxide speed boosts, which you activate by pressing Z. Other tricks are already available, such as super flips, heli spins, and mondo rolls.

A nice touch is the ability to change the music track by hitting the R button.

Still, the game has little creativity and excitement, but the low challenge level may be accessible to young players, perhaps the best audience for the game.
