  1. Perhaps the finest cartoon-to-game conversion I've seen. Everyone is sure to be impressed with at least some aspects of the game, and some will find it just perfect. That those folks will invariably be the youngest members of your family almost goes without saying.
  2. In comparison to South Park Rally, probably the most recent PC arcade racer, Wacky Racer isn't all that bad, but that's not saying much. Wacky Races could and should have been better on the PC.

    A simplistic, cute looking, but overall shallow experience that will remind you off those sugar-filled breakfast cereals you chomped on for years -- a good initial punch, a fun buzz, then the inevitable crash and boredom.
  4. Inexplicably, Wacky Races does away with the very features which made its console cousins so endearing, substituting in their place cheap filler that's pure crapola whichever way you look at it.

    Fun game, but doesn't offer anything new for cart racing. Good idea making the increasing difficulties different race types, but Fun game, but doesn't offer anything new for cart racing. Good idea making the increasing difficulties different race types, but difficulty seems way too unbablanced at the end-- TOO difficult, right from fairly easy from the previous race type. It definitely is fun, but it's frustrating (and not in a good way). And with characters that most cart racing fans will be unfamiliar with, there's not much of a reason to buy this game unless you're looking for a hard cart racer. Expand
