  • Summary: Taz has reached his boiling point in Taz: Wanted--and for good reason. Yosemite Sam locked Taz in a zoo and wants to turn his homeland into a tacky theme park. Now, as an escapee, Taz is on the run gobbling power-ups, using disguises, and leaving a wake of destruction across four hazard-filled worlds in an attempt to stop Sam. Guide Taz as he spins and bounces his way through more than 15 levels of puzzles, enemies, and destructible environments. Expand

  1. This is easily the best WB-based game to come down the pike yet. [Sept 2002, p.69]
  2. Gorgeously cel shaded, sharp, and smart, but ultimately too difficult for the game's intended audience and certainly a little too generous in its repetition of sound samples. [Fall 2002, p.121]
  3. There are definitely flaws, but nothing that brings the game to a screeching halt.
  4. Cel-shading is average, voice acting is nothing more then decent, but the lack of save points and frustrating, repeated gameplay spoils it all.
  5. Exploration is usually a big part of the enjoyment of games like this, and unfortunately, you never get the sense that you can do this here. [Oct 2002, p.112]
  6. It’s supposed to be a cartoon and it definitely looks like one but however you look at it there aren’t many polygons in any given level – so why on earth is the frame rate so choppy?
  7. Taz has no butt stomp or double jump maneuvers, the latter of which would've come in very handy for the game's prevalent platform jumping.

    It's fun and enjoyable when there is nothing to do, and it also makes you think.
