  • Excerpt: Wacky Racers is a Hanna-Barbara cartoon series that a lot of kids today will most likely not recognize. That being said, I remember watching it when I was a kid and that was quite sometime ago. Wacky Races: Crash & Dash is a new kart racer based on the series.

Too-violent kart-racer crashes and burns.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game will frustrate the kids. It's far too hard to steer and stay on course. Sometimes, you won't even see your race car because it goes behind a hill.

  • Excerpt: If you're old enough to remember watching 60s-era Hanna-Barbara cartoons on Saturday mornings, take off the rose-colored spectacles o' nostalgia for a minute and recall how crappy they really were. Wacky Races on Wii is like that, only you have to pay for it. So don't.

  • Summary: Performance-boosting items have been a staple in mascot racing games for some time, but these arcade experiences usually encompass some sort of racing structure as well. This is not true with Wacky Races.
  • Pros: Good presentation
  • Cons: Racing game without an acceleration button, Items are pointless, Too much remote shaking, Way too easy, Annoying midrace minigames

Wacky Races: Crash and Dash

  • Conclusion: At least Wacky Races: Crash and Dash tried to do something different… but in the end, it’s too chaotic and difficult to control. While the idea of having all racers on screen together is unique, it’s just not possible to pull it off without things being so crowded.

  • Summary: True fans of the cartoon may want to rent or borrow this game just for the sake of seeing it themselves, but otherwise this game isn’t worth any time or effort. The only audience that may like this game is small children between ages 3-7. My nephew loves the game, but no one else does.
  • Pros: -Pretty accurate sound quality., -All of the characters from the show are included., -Based on a wonderful TV show.
  • Cons: -Players can’t brake or accelerate., -Booby traps can get very annoying., -Visually unimpressive at best., -Does not make good use of Wii motion controls.
