Summary: Whiplash is a fun, hurmourous game published by Eidos, and has a clever story, setting, and gameplay. The entire game takes place in an animal research facility, and you play as some sort of weasal chained to an obnoxious rabbit named Redford, who are escaping the facility. Funny premise, right? The game comes off that way too. You primarily control the weasel, and use poor Redford as a tool. Yes, you read that right.
Summary: Whiplash is guaranteed to, at some point in the game, make you laugh. Or at least smile a few times. It is a platformer with a sense of humour. Basic premise is that a weasel and a rabbit are joined together by a chain and must escape from an animal testing company's enormous factory. Spanx (the weasel) uses Redmond (the rabbit) as a kind of swiss army rabbit - i.e. he uses him in whatever way is necessary to progress.
This had great potential but failed in nearly all areas.

Summary: I remember playing the demo for this game and enjoyed. The gags like the Fatress and the hilrous things the rabbit says brought a smile to my face. When I saw it on sale on Amazon I decided to give it a try. BIG MISTAKE! The game starts out funny and witty. The gags are there the things the enimies say even the angry animal comments. But this soon plummets after the first level.
Summary: I bought this game with high hopes having seen pictures and read reveiws it sounded great with a quirky sense of humour and to an extent the humour is good - with 1 major downfall it's just the same 10 or so lines repeated over and over again which at first becomes boring and then annoying.
Summary: Great Game. You have to guide the weasel round the animal testing company and destroy it. Very funny dialogue and storyline. A must buy if you like games. Am only half way through, but its worth it for just that.
Excerpt: On joue une fouine et un lapin très dangereux qui tentent de s'échapper d'un labo d'expériences sur animaux, en faisant un max de dégâts. A partir de là, je pense que le terme "excellemment délirant" colle parfaitement. En plus de son originalité le rapprochant de pas mal d'autres très bons titres XBOX (WHACKED, UN VOISIN D'ENFER, TIME SPLITTERS 2 ou encore VOODOO VINCE), WHIPLASH est très attachant et consciencieusement réalisé, jusque dans sa notice en couleur ornée de...
