Midway isn't exactly known for its originality when it comes to racing games, yet some of them are instant hits. Take the San Francisco Rush games for example -- fun, quick, with lots of things to find and do. The Cruis'n series of racing games, however, has never really been terribly impressive, and this latest entry is likely the most disappointing yet. It attempts to fool players into thinking it's imaginative by adding some unusual tracks, such as Atlantis and Mars, but the racing engine is a step back in the evolution of such games, and will leave a sour taste in racing fans' mouths. Cars bounce off invisible boundaries, pop-in is abundant and obvious, and touchy controls make this one racing game to avoid at all costs.
