In light of all these caveats, you have to wonder why Cruis'n Exotica is worth buying at all, especially in light of such quality titles as Wacky Races and Test Drive Le Mans. The answer: feel. While the game is lacking in terms of overall gameplay, visual quality, and sound depth, there is never any doubt that you're playing a Cruis'n game. If you absolutely want a portable version of Cruis'n Exotica, this GBC port is a decent choice. Just don't expect drop-dead visuals or deep gameplay.

I tip my hat to Crawfish for one of the coolest, pseudo-3D engines on the Game Boy Color, but I'm not going to look the other way when it comes to the gameplay -- Cruis'n Exotica is just a bit too boring to recommend as a portable racing game. The design needs a lot more "oomph", and the Freestyle mode shouldn't have been included in the first place -- hiding the tracks would have kept the kiddies playing just so they could see all the locations hidden in the cartridge.

Cruis’n Exotica est la seconde séquelle de Cruis’n USA, un jeu de course automobile qui n’a jamais vraiment trouvé son public. Outre une certaine richesse symbolisée par 12 circuits et 12 véhicules sur trois modes de jeu, c’est le moteur du jeu qui impressionne. L’effet 3D est saisissant. L’illusion est renforcée par différents angles de vue changeables à la volée. Ceci n’excuse en rien l’animation exécrable des véhicules. La jouabilité n’est guère mieux lotie : la gestion des collisions est complètement abracadabrante. Comble du ridicule, deux tapes successives sur le bouton des gaz et votre véhicule roule sur ses deux roues arrières, boostant temporairement votre vitesse. Vous qui trouviez aberrante l’accélération lors des wheelings de Moto Racer, vous voilà gâtés!
