Let the bad guys win!

Trystan20..., Ciao
27 June 2007
  • Excerpt: Why is it that in Wacky Racers the bad guys never win? I used to watch it every day in the hope that dick dasterly and muttly would win! This show is so moral!! It is completely unlike reality. If it was real life muttly would always win. Their car is cooler and equip a lot better for racing and hurting people. And who wants to see the good guys win all the time? It's like on catch the pigeon, when muttly was on that, they never did get that bloody pigeon.
  • Pros: Good to watch
  • Cons: bad guys never win

  • Excerpt: “Drat, and double drat, Muttley!” Wacky Races used to be my favourite cartoon as a youngster, and now I can relive all those wacky races on the new PC/console game from Infogrames. Based on a simple car racing game, you can take on one of those wacky racers as you compete in a tournament, a single race, or even get in a spot of practice.
  • Pros: Nostalgia !
  • Cons: Far too easy and novelty wears straight off !

More wacky than the cartoon

  • Excerpt: Wacky Races. Everybody's favourite cartoon on a Saturday morning. So when I saw it was being converted to Dreamcast, I simply couldn't wait! And suffice to say I wasn't disappointed when I bought it. The fare is the same as any recent cartoon-style racer. Take control of a zany character, race against zanier characters on the zaniest courses ever. Too many "Zany"'s I know, but it's the best word for this game.
  • Pros: It's Wacky Races  -  sheer nostalgia !  !
  • Cons: When it's fully completed, that's about it

  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Pros: funny power - ups and stuff
  • Cons: can be a bit too stupid at times

  • Excerpt: Wacky races on the sega d c is based on the 30 odd year old t v show, Wacky races! The cartoon wacky races was based on 12 different teams trying to win the race using any possible means. Not just skill, this included using weapons and some times, in the case of Dick dastardly, down right cheating. The portable version of this classic game is very playable and fun to play, not just due to the amazing graphics and fun weapons, but also to its amazing gameplay.
  • Pros: fun

Nice game but is like an animation

  • Excerpt: The graphics are slightly wasted when the racing begins, as you don't really get the effect of how good they are until the racing is over and you take a look at the replays. Still, the tracks provide something for you to focus on and are just as good as the characters. The design leads to some bland spots but they couldn't be condemned as being eye sores.
  • Pros: Visually Fantastic
  • Cons: Like playing a cartoon

  • Excerpt: The animation for the cars and their attacks are straight out of the cartoon, and give the whole game a “rubbery” feel that helps keep the slapstick flowing. I can’t tell you how many times I laughed when I stumbled upon the Creepy Coupe’s Pumpkin Mines and they would then start hopping after me. There are tons of little touches like this, from the hearts that surround you when you get hit by a Lippy Shot to the way Peter Perfect’s car bends up front when he turns.
  • Pros: Cartoon graphics
  • Cons: Races are a bit random

  • Excerpt: Come on, we all remember Wacky Races, the cartoon second perhaps only to catch the pidgeon. Well this is it. Surely, I hear you cry, its the game not the cartoon. Well yes and no. Lets get this straight, this game *is* the cartoon. The graphics are superb, the best cartoon style gfx this side of Jet Set Radio. Vibrant and colourful they capture the essence of the cartoon perfectly. The sound too is fantastic.
  • Pros: Muttley !  ,Excellent Cartoon gfx, lots of play modes, multiplayer .
  • Cons: Slight frame rate hits at times
