    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 Whacked! is probably the most underrated XBox game out.

    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.

    This game really surprised me. I wasn't even going to bother looking at it but it came with the Live beta kit. Once you play it on Live you will care less about Unreal Championship, Socom, Ghost Recon etc. The game is whacky, fast, and completely unpredictable. What other game can have the person that is winning suddenly drop straight to last place and the last place person come in This game really surprised me.

What other game can have the person that is winning suddenly drop straight to last place and the last place person come in first? None, zero, nada. Don't let the simple gameplay, and cartoonish characters fool you. This game is as hardcore as they get. Single player isn't so bad either if you do not have Live. Plenty of weapons, game modes, powerups, maps and characters to keep you playing this for quite awhile. Expand

    The one-player is good but the multi-player is terrible. In multi-player, you play a single event chosen from a menu. The experience is much like playing Unreal on a very small arena. It's no party game.

    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 moreWhacked is one of the most decidedly creepy games I've played in a while, and not because it's scary.

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. Expand

  1. It's good, uncomplicated fun, but you won't ever want more than the demo version supplied with the Xbox Live Starter Kit. As a £40 purchase, Whacked! can get F---ed!

    Take it please, and understand there are absolutely, positively, no returns. [Winter 2002, p.109]
  3. Maybe like American Football and Baseball, Whacked is simply going to become another title that many English gamers will simply not get. I know this one didn’t.
