Summary: I've had this game for a couple of years now. I bought it for my son who was five at the time. Thanks to Boomerang he was really into the Wacky Races before I bought the game. The Wacky Races was one of my favorite shows when I was a little kid, too. So, I thought, what the heck, let's give it a try. It's a difficult game to get adjusted to because you have to steer from above the race track with your left thumb on the nunchuck joystick.
Summary: There is some potential to this game. Every race about 2 or 3 times you run into the evil villain who tries to foil you and you have to do some minigame to defeat him and not get set back. It's got some good qualities to the game and definitely brings back the experience of the cartoon but there are definitely better racing games out there. Overall rating: 5/10.
and here they are the most daffy drivers ever to whorl there wheels in the wacky races!

Summary: by the way im 11.This is an awesome video game. it is very fun for a family too because it has multiplayer and the content is very good for kids. in this game 10 wacky racers are playable. which one isnt? Dick Dastardly! even though you can get his biography and his car you cant drive it. thats why i came up with an awesome way to pretend to be dastardly. you put your tag as DD or DDM for dick dastardly or dick dastardly and muttley.
Wacky Races is possibly one of the most fun videogames ever!

Summary: in this game you race across different areas that are from the episodes of the show. dick dastardly will set traps for you and you must pass the traps or end up in last place for a short while. this is also a great family game. 4 people can play at the same time.
Summary: Wacky Races: Crash and Dash is one of those rare examples where a television based game can actually come off as being fun. Players can pick to get behind the wheel of any of the cars (with the exception of the Mean Machine) and duke it out with the other racers on the track. The racers look really good, as do the tracks, and everything harkens back to the old cartoon. Even the announcer returns to give a play by play.
This game doesn't deserve the one star I was forced to give it!

Summary: I can't believe a software company would actually publish this! The graphics and gameplay are just plain bad. The graphics remind me of a game from the original Nintendo NES 8-bit system. I think I lasted one race before taking this game back to the video store. Glad I didn't buy it. If you want an excellent racing game please buy Mario Kart!
Summary: I'll try not to repeat what everyone else said but overall my suggestion is to rent or wait for the discount rack price. My 7yo son picked this one and we played it maybe an hour and hasn't looked at it since. The best part is that the cartoons are cute. That's the only good thing I can say and why I didn't give it a one star which I seriously considered. The race is in the third person across the screen and it really is not a race.
Summary: Wow, this game is bad. My husband and I tried it and lasted about two races. Instead of a 1st-person racer like the awesome Mario Kart, this is a third person racer. Good luck picking your car out of the big tangle of tiny, poorly-rendered cars moving across the screen. The original cartoon has better graphics than this thing. Bad, bad, bad. If you really want to try it just rent it so you won't be disappointed that you paid 30-some dollars for this junk.
