    This is easily the best WB-based game to come down the pike yet. [Sept 2002, p.69]

    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.

    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.

And as a ten year old boy who loved the character I was very happy when I played it, I think its a fine platformer for kids only. Playing it again when I was older made me realize that the game is far to easy once you have grown up a bit, the story is pretty much worthless (stereotypical save the princess) and there are only a handful of enemy types.

    Not a terrible game, but the older audience will get bored pretty quickly.

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