  1. By far the wildest and craziest party game to hit a console system and is a must have replacement title for players who like "Crash Bandicoot," "Super Smash Brothers" or "Fuzion Frenzy" style games.

    Whacked is one of the most decidedly creepy games I've played in a while, and not because it's scary. The 7+ characters are interesting to play as though the function the same, but are so disturbing, it's kind of fun. The most disappointing part of the package though has to be the gameplay. It can be inconsistent when jumping as you would always overjump, and it is too easy. What's more insulting is the lack of content. Sure there are 7 different campaigns to play through, but they are all the same matches you play just with different cutscenes at the end of each section, which may be the only driving force to keep playing the game. It can also be messy at times when you play, as I often got annoyed by effects that popped onscreen whenever I got hit, and I wouldn't be able to recover easily. It's fun sure, but not among the best party games out there, and there are plenty. Full Review »

    Whacked! is The best xbox game I've played. The characters are cool. The levels are good, too. My favorite character is Otto. I used to like Kung Fu Chaos but Whacked is better. Full Review »

    Whacked! is probably the most underrated XBox game out. I can think of a grand total of 2 party games EVER that are better: Super Bomberman on the SNES and Twisted on the 3DO. Few games possess this much fun and originality... a ridiculously addictive romp from start to finish. The low scores baffle me... I can only guess that the magazine reviewers lack the hand/eye coordination needed to excel at it. Their loss! Full Review »
