As a casual racer on the Wii based on a 40-year-old cartoon, it is both unlikely to appeal to fans of the show (as they don't likely play video games), and it likely won't resonate with younger gamers, who have no idea who these characters are and why they're dressed that way. It really doesn't matter, though, as Wacky Races is little more than a mild distraction, the fun ending long before the checkered flag ever drops.
Those familiar with the cartoon series will be happy to see all their old favorites here, as 10 different racers from Peter Perfect to the Ant Hill Mob make an appearance. Each character gets his own specific vehicle, and given the fact that the game features a license from Hanna-Barbera, the entire cast is spot-on, just like they walked out of the cartoon and into your Wii."
