To be fair, these images look like they've been resized or stretched or something -- 3D shots aside, the text and 2D graphics can't be this awful can they?

Even if the images were resized, the textures and models look like the developers created them on their cell phones. You can see the line in the grass where it meets the cliff..

What the hell is with these companies?! I mean, good lord, the Wii *IS* more powerful than PlayStation 2...yet we are still seeing crap like this.

There are racers on Dreamcast that look superior to this! The jaggy launch title Ridge Racer V stomps a hole in this!

Abundance of shovelware comes with being market leader. It's a necessary evil.

Hearing alot of this meme lately...

Even on titles that have a pretty established history and wouldn't normally be considered "shovelware"

Sad.

Arcade racers aren't so common anymore. Crusin' is a simple series that could stand to have some improvements to make it worth playing again. In a perfect world, they would take the time to make this look as good as Burnout 3, alter some gameplay mechanics (add some bullshit car tuning, build on the "cruise the country" theme and make the races based on actual routes/interstates or provide multiple exits on routes to choose how you cross the country, &c &c), and make a Crusin' game worthwhile.

I don't get how something simple like the Cruisn' series has become like this. The original arcade games are decent for dumb enjoyment, and the only place one should play them - the N64 ports were all sacrificed in some fashion or another. They're also a decade old. How do those look better than this?

Yes, the question is rhetorical, since this is Midway and the Cruisn' series after all.
