  1. While the gameplay was addicting and fun, the graphics and sound are where the games problems come in.
  2. A simplistic arcade game that features wonderful cartoon graphics.
  3. A funny story and classic Looney tunes characters give Taz: Wanted a zany edge. [Dec 2002, p.218]
  4. What is slightly worrying though is that despite being aimed directly at kids Taz Wanted is one frustrating game, thanks to the fact that Taz himself controls like a blind three-legged badger… especially when he’s doing his trademark spin.

    It's a game best suited for kids, who will enjoy spinning around uncontrollably smashing things and solving the rudimentary puzzles.

Level designs are good as well. The plot is lacking, though. Expand

    I can't deny my feelings for this game growing up. As the first console game I've ever owned as a child and beat, the amount of I can't deny my feelings for this game growing up. As the first console game I've ever owned as a child and beat, the amount of nostalgia that I get while playing this game in nearly infinite. However, now older, I can realize the flaws of the game that I never cared about years ago: The difficulty is minimal, the sound editing is extremely poor, the cel-shaded art style never hits its stride, and the game's occasional moments of diversity with driving mini-games are horribly controlled. Then again, the camera is pitch-perfect, the soundtrack is great, and the controls are inventive and fun. Taz: Wanted is simply a mixed bag, one that some will love and some will hate. Still, I'd only recommend this to die-hard Taz fans and children. Expand
