    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. The action and puzzle-solving elements balance nicely. The humor throughout the game is actually funny, especially some of the animal testing equipment they use.
  3. The use of Redmond the Rabbit is very innovative, and does add a different element to a game. It's also solid looking, and solid albeit a little complex in the controls.

    The action is fast, the writing is witty and the bunny can whoop ass.
  5. Even though the game becomes a bit of a chore to muddle through near the end I can’t help but recommend Whiplash for its delightful design and truly funny characters.
  6. The combination of puzzles and action fits well, whilst the level of humour certainly helps the game to gel with the player – although some may find the type of comedy a little low-brow.
  7. 80
    It's addictive, funny, and will make you feel more than a little sad when it's over.
  8. Definitely worth checking out for the humor aspects and watching Spank abuse Redmond to no end.
  9. A welcome change from the norm and if it wasn’t for the awkward camera angles, it would have been a top class game instead of an above average game.
  10. Play Magazine

    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]
