And heres why:
Cruisin USA is arcade racing in its purest form and carries all the genre's trademarks, such as catch up (aka rubber banding), exaggerated vehicle performance, and of course, big jumps!
Winning a race rewards you with a free race (on arcade default settings) and a babe with a trophy. Score!
It runs great in MAME on an Athlon X2 7750 + Ati 4850 with a MS sidewinder wheel (10 years and still going strong, shame about the drivers).
