GiN Review - Wacky Races: Crash and Dash

James Maddox writes:

"Wacky Races was a cartoon that aired back in 1968 and had a long-running presence on Saturday morning cartoon schedules throughout the country even after its 1970 end-date. Now, nearly 40 years later, a game has surfaced that attempts to bring the animated classic back into the limelight, only to succeed in creating a very forgettable title.

Still, the overall charm that Wacky Races: Crash and Dash hoped to accomplish is superficially present on the game's outer surface. It's stylish in the ways it should be stylish, calling memories back to a simpler form of animation, and its antics parallel the cartoon's theme perfectly.

But digging deeper (aka actually playing the game) brings a major letdown that fans of the old cartoon will find disheartening, especially if they were hoping to pass the love of Wacky Races to a new generation."
