Review: Heathcliff: The Fast and the Furriest (Nintendo Wii)
30 April 2013
Summary: Being reviewed in the last month of 2010, Heathcliff: The Fast and the Furriest is a late entry, but it is the worst game I have played this year. Nothing even comes close. This game represents everything that can be irritating about video games: repetitiveness, bad gameplay, unresponsive controls, annoying music and frustrating objectives.
Excerpt: Heathcliff is one of those characters that has not gotten a lot of video game exposure. Heathcliff the Fast and the Furriest is a Mario Kart clone where players are racing against aliens to get Sonja back. These aliens have kidnapped her, and the only way Heathcliff can get her back is to defeat them in races. Yeah I know what many of our readers are thinking. I don't make this stuff up, I just review it.
Excerpt: Every child of the 80s knows about Heathcliff, the orange cartoon cat who's name definitely isn't Garfield. Heathcliff's cartoon, which featured not just him, but also the Cadillac Cats, had what is, in my mind, the best theme song of all time (I know you're singing it in your head right now!). The show aired on Nickelodeon approximately every five seconds in the 80s and early 90s and was well-loved by those of us who are now starting to turn 30.
