Now that you've cruised the USA, are you ready to take on the world? In this follow-up to 1996's arcade racer for the Nintendo 64, players once again find themselves embarking on a trek across scenic locales in an effort to become the top driver in the world.
Cruis'n World features a total of fifteen tracks, taking you through the following international destinations: Hawaii, Italy, England, China, Japan, Australia, Kenya, Mexico, New York, Germany, Egypt, France, Russia and maybe even the moon!
New to this game is the Championship Mode, which offers competitive racing on shortened versions of the aforementioned courses. The goal is to finish within the top three of each race (out of ten drivers) on one of three difficulty levels: Easy, Medium or Expert.
As in Cruis'n USA, players can either work on improving their best times in the Practice Mode or enter the "Cruise the World" event to compete on longer variants of each course. While players begin the game with their choice of twelve cars, twelve more can be unlocked by finishing course within a certain target time.
Also featured is a trick system, allowing you to upgrade your car's paint scheme or maximum speed to one of five levels. Points are awarded for three types of stunts performed during the Championship Mode: Jump Flips, Super Helis and Mega Flips. You can also perform turbo boosts at any time as well as tilt your car on its side to drive on two wheels!
Cruis'n World automatically saves progress and best times to one of four data files on the cartridge, and the game also supports the optional Rumble Pak accessory for vibration feedback. Take on up to four friends for split-screen racing action around the globe! ~ Brad Penniment, All Game Guide
