      Frantically Fun Racing Game Replicating The Cartoon Perfectly

      Wacky Races, based on the cartton of the same name, is a frantically fun character based racing game with crazy courses and wacky challenges. With a choice of most of the original Wacky Races characters and their vehicles (Dick Dastardly and Mutley, Professer Pat Pending and Red Max must be unlocked before playable) you race across 3 worlds in a battle style similar to the classic Mario Kart. Each character has its own set of unique gadgets or weapons from The Ant Hill Mobs getaway power speed boost to Penelope Pitstops lipstick attack. The characters and worlds are superbly rendered in the cell-shaded style that accurately replicates the cartoons style in 3D and the races are incredibly fun to play as you are never far from the gang of wacky characters as you battle your way to winning position. There are many courses, characters and special abilities to unlock giving the first-player long playability but its really the multiplayer that makes this game worthwhile as there's hours of fun to be had racing in the worlds wacky race with your friends.

      Hmmm... Wacky Races is actually a very good game, I would say it’s most definitely aimed at the younger generation of Dreamcast racing game players, but adults and all generations will have a good couple of hours play out of this from time to time. Staring Dick Darstedly and Mutley – you know, from the cartoons, as well as many other superb and hilarious characters. It’s very much a non serious racing game, you can’t take it too seriously, it’s just a really fun and entertaining racer that will appeal to children and so for the asking price of just £10 - £20, where available (Dreamcast games are getting hard to find nowadays), it’s well worth the money. Stylishly done, with a unique 2D as 3D presentation, it has to be seen to be appreciated – the Dreamcast version is far better than the PlayStation version, graphically at least – so get the DC version if you don’t have either console (that’ll mean you need a Dreamcast too). The music is fun too! Plus points: Tracks are simple and well designed. It’s a cartoon come to life in a game. Power ups – a Mario Kart clone? Not quite, this game puts a new spin on things. Graphically impressive, different and dares to stay different. FUN! Downsides: Longevity won’t be that great More for kids than adults I think. Overall, it’s not a serious racer, but the races could get fierce – full of life and wacky! 4 stars!

        Is it Wacky? yes. Do you Race?yes. Is it fun? maybe. I hope you try to make a good review to this game!! It is completely impossible to write well on Wacky races because you either like it or you dont. There are many different things you can say about its graphics, complexity, sound etc. etc. WHO CARES it's the fun that really counts!!! Take doom for example: old? yes. good graphics? not that good. Fun? yes and everybody loves it. If you want to know if you want to buy the game by just reading my reveiw you wont know fully whether you should get it. I would reccomend renting it. If you like it buy it. If you don't like it don't buy it!!! I got it for christmas and I thought. This looks pretty stupid, wierd cars driving around in a cartoon landscape. Then I played it and thought hey its actually not that bad!! Pesonally I liked it but you really should try before you buy!! I am leaving the decision whether its a good game up to you. I hope this helps you make the right descision!! THE ET_MISTER
