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.
Excerpt: ITS OK I SUPPOSE IS THIS ONE! I TOLD MY CHILDREN (AGE 5 AND 6) I'D BOUGHT IT FOR THEM BUT REALLY IT WAS ME THAT WANTED. YOU KNOW A BIT OF NOSTALGIA. THE MUSIC IS GREAT AND SO IS THE COMMENTRY AS WE ALL REMEMBERED FROM THE EIGHTIES. INFACT FOR ABOUT A HOUR ITS HILARIOUS. EVEN THOUGH THE CHILDREN DIDN'T GET IT. THE CAST AND CARS ARE ALL AS WE REMEMBERED. SO WAS IT ANY GOOD? NO THIS GAME SAYS AGE 3+.
Summary: I was really hoping for a great game from this having enjoyed the cartoons for so many years but was left disappointed. Given that it was on the Wii I thought it would be 3D but instead they have chosen to do it in the same 2D style of the cartoons. It's flat and frustrating, I haven't enjoyed playing it at all. Frustrating because you can't always make out where you are in the melee of cars and it seems incredibly slow to play.
Excerpt: Review of Wacky Races for Ninetendo Wii Introduction Is it just me or in seemingly no time at all there is millions of Wii games available? I remember not that long ago Wii sports was all the rage but mainly because there was little other choice of games. Now I often scan the shelves to see lots of games that look absolutely dreadful yet 'Wacky Races Crash and Dash' had some sort of appeal.
Excerpt: Overall I found this game a poor purchase. The game play I found dull, and just used the wii remote for the sake of using it, not using it intuitively. The commentary is repetitive and the jokes lack humor. When racing, if you fall behind you r car just disappears of the screen, and the same happens if you take the lead, meaning it is pointless to do much until the end of the race. There are cut-scenes which you do tasks such as pumping up a tire.
Cons: Commentary, poor humour, bad gameplay, poor use of wiimote
