    Fun game for fans of the series.

    I can't lie, sometimes I still pick this game from the shelve and play it just to remember the joy I had when I was 8/9 years old and the episodes of the cartoon. One of the reasons that made me adore this game was th... Read Full Review

    Wacky Races is a generic 2D platformer but there's still some fun to go for.

    The Good: Interesting power-up system for a platformer; good-looking sprites and backgrounds; cool effects in the music tracks, like bends and delay; good boss fights. The Bad: Generic; repetitive music; too short. ... Read Full Review

    This is some pretty neat stuff right here.

    Years ago, my father brought home a Wacky Races game for the PC. I used to watch the cartoon as a child so I thought it'd be cool to have a game for it. When I tried it however, I found it to be almost unplayable: Very b... Read Full Review

    A really creative concept and some great gameplay decisions weighed down by mediocre level design and lackluster bosses.

    +All of the Hanna-Barbara characters from the old cartoon are here. +Several levels show imagination in a genre that was growing stale by this time +Several of Muttley's abilities show real creativity -No actual endin... Read Full Review

    What can you crash into next?

    If you were a very young child, this might have been fun. The original cartoon was pretty funny. However, all this game does is give you yet another stupid setting where you wander around bumping into things. The vehicle... Read Full Review

    I'll have to say even though the game starts off CRAZY easy the boss battles are a bit tough. Maybe it is just me but when I beat a boss I like it to STAY DEAD. Not pop back up and have to do it all again. Who ever ma... Read Full Review
