IGN: Wacky Races: Crash & Dash Review

Wacky Races is an oddball release that seems geared toward a demographic that doesn't exist on Wii or DS, a truth evidenced by the fact that sales for both systems combined haven't topped 5,000 so far. If you're a diehard fan of the animated series, developer Eidos Sweden has managed to capture some of its charm with this simple, shallow racer. But whatever is gained in presentational cartoon clips and voiceover is surely lost as the same-looking, same-playing levels begin bleeding together in a repetitious manner. If you must play it, try the DS version. Even if you're forced to blow into the screen to win races, this is the type of game that's best enjoyed on to the go.

Presentation - 6.0
Graphics - 5.0
Sound - 6.0
Gameplay - 4.0
Lasting Appeal - 3.0
Overall - (Wacky Races: Crash & Dash, Wii) 4/10
