    Filled with enough chaos and wicked humor to forgive the slight reliance on platform clichés, Whiplash really is a hell of a game. With a little more polish before release, this game could have been a true masterpiece.
  2. It's not insta-classic material, but it is a fun game that exhibits solid gameplay and a good sense of humor.
  3. 80
    Its humorous tone and extremely satisfying random destruction really make it worth playing.
  4. 80
    It's addictive, funny, and will make you feel more than a little sad when it's over.
  5. Whiplash's style takes it a long way; hell, any title with the power to make PETA smile and fume at the same time has got something going.
  6. There are flashes of comic genius in Whiplash, but equally as many missed opportunities. While this game is good, it narrowly misses the mark.
  7. Look past some simplistic visual designs and enjoy the bright, unique style the artists have worked into Whiplash and you'll find a solid game that entertains after you've had your fill with the holiday A-lists. [Jan 2004, p.66]

    Simply enjoyable. The rabbit on a chain weapon works surprisingly well! The targeting is very intuitive, and works fluidly. Speaking of Simply enjoyable. The rabbit on a chain weapon works surprisingly well! The targeting is very intuitive, and works fluidly. Speaking of fluids, I nearly wet myself at the sight of the rabbit smashing into everything. If I could rename this game I would call it Mayhem. Whiplash doesn't seem as appropriate as it only describes one small aspect of the game. I used to love breaking stuff when I was a kid... This game makes it fun. At first your only weapon is a rabbit on a chain, but very soon, things heat up (pun). My favorite power up of all is the electro-bunny. The rabbit gets all charged up and zaps anything near it, which in turn zaps anything near that, which zaps anything near that! Spanx (the weasel) can literally hit one enemy in a room, and watch the entire room light up as machines, enemies, and robots get electrocuted for the next minute or so- genius. Sound effects sound just like any cartoon on network tele. No complaints there. The graphics are a bit gritty, but it doesn't get in the way. In fact, it enhances the cartoon feel. Smash it up fool!
