  1. Da Gameboyz
    With great cartoon graphics, excellent control, challenging AI and a ton of extras to open up, this game is a worthy addition to any Dreamcast owner's library of games.
  2. Top-notch presentation, eye-popping graphics and phenomenal sound bytes make this the best "kiddie" title of the year!
  3. Dreamcast HQ
    I saw rendered worlds that looked almost hand-drawn in Looney Tunes cartoon fashion, with cel-rendered cartoon characters. In the end, add to that a solid and smooth framerate, and a great cartoon look. It's really like playing a Warner Bros Looney Tune.

    I think what ultimately won me over on this game was the challenging AI. The computer opponents can be down right cheap at times; often it will seem like they will deliberately tag-team you.
  5. With much to unlock, loveable characters that many generations have grown up with, solid control and music that is very fitting, Infogrames couldn't have done this game much better.
  6. Despite the rubber-band AI, this is still a fun, addictive kart racer.
  7. Daily Radar
    Decent game mechanics placed within a historically precise recreation of the beloved Looney Tunes world makes it a good, solid racer worthy of the brand Acme.
  8. It's the multiplayer mode that ultimately makes this well worth your pennies.
  9. CNET Gamecenter
    Its combination of colorful, accurate cartoon-themed graphics and tight gameplay will have you hootin' and hollerin' all winter long.
  10. This game features superb graphics, a great soundtrack, detailed environments, and good control. And while there are a few problems with enemy AI and cheap weaponry, there is still a lot of fun to be had with this title.
  11. A revolutionary title, but terrible AI holds it back from being one of the best games of the year.
  12. Massages the retinas quite well, but the cheap AI and random power-ups place an unwanted emphasis on luck instead of skill.
  13. Unfortunately, the solid graphics, intricate track construction, and fairly tight controls fail to overcome cheap AI and a poorly balanced weapons system, relegating LTSR to the rental bin for all but the most devoted 'toon fans.
  14. Comes out just slightly better than your average ho-hum kart racer. It's got sweet graphics and the Looney Tunes, but not a much beyond that.

Looney Tunes: Space Race is a real gem among Dreamcast games that shouldn't be forgotten. If you can get your hands on it, get it and play it. It's a very easy to understand kart-racer with power-ups and whatnot. Very similar to Mario Kart. Looney Tunes: Space Race requires minimum skill but thanks to the enormous library of original Looney Tunes sound effects and vocal samples it's like really chasing the Roadrunner with Wile E. Coyote. Full Review »

    6 because I love Looney Tunes characters...the main problem with this game is that is not skill based.
