  1. The real charm of the game comes from Daffy's annimated reactions to your meddling, done with such a pitch-perfect style that it would have made the late Chuck Jones proud. [Nov 2007, p.102]
  2. 80
    It's actually funny and creative -- a rare combination.
  3. I would recommend that everyone experience the brilliant design of this game and the witty dialogue, especially if you're a fan of the cartoon; however, the mini-games (the meat of the game) do not hold up for very long. There is about 2 hours of gameplay in Duck Amuck, and whether that warrants a $30 purchase is up to you.
  4. All things considered, Looney Tunes: Duck Amuck is a solid title that has quite a bit to see.
  5. 75
    Where many games tend to stick to well trodden gameplay paths when dealing with well know intellectual property, Duck Amuck is brimming with originality.
  6. It's not really a title to play for extended periods but instead something to dip into for five minutes at a time. [Nov 2007, p.112]
  7. You'll enjoy it a lot while it lasts, but it's just a shame there isn't more Daffy here to love.
  8. As an innovative first try, Duck Amuck is a success.
  9. Almost an interactive cartoon. Excellent, if short lived, entertainment. [Christmas 2007, p.84]
  10. Despite having all the components for a promising game, this is a complete disappointment. [Feb 2008, p.65]
  11. 60
    Ultimately, Duck Amuck succeeds more as an interactive cartoon than it does as a mini-game collection.
  12. Interacting with Daffy Duck and watching animated sequences unfold is fun, but there's barely a half-hour's worth of entertainment here.
  13. 60
    Looney Tunes: Duck Amuck isn't bad, it's just an idea that wasn't stretched out far enough to cover the space provided in the cartridge.
  14. 60
    A slew of glitches run constantly throughout the game.
  15. Duck Amuck is a title that does its utmost to show (a lot like Rub Rabbits) what the DS can do with all its gimmicks, but it fails to live up to its qualities on the game side.
  16. This is an excellent case of style dripping over substance and if you can forgive its dire lack of the latter, you're sure to enjoy what laughs you'll get out of it.

    I thought the idea of a Looney Tunes game based off of one of the most famous shorts would be really good, but instead it's badly designed mini games with mostly bad controls. Daffy Duck warrants for a few laughs every now and then, but overall this game is really bad. I only give it a 5 because I enjoyed some of the mini games that weren't so annoying and repetitive.
