Wacky Races: Crash & Dash is an action racing game like no other, with fun-filled environments, crazy cars and hilarious characters. The game features all the characters and cars from the TV series including old favorites: Turbo Terrific driven by Peter Perfect, the Ant Hill Mob in their Bullet Proof Bomb, Penelope Pitstop, and the Mean Machine driven by Dick Dastardly and his sidekick, Muttley. Players join Dick Dastardly and the gang, racing across a variety of action-packed and colorful cross-country rallies from the TV series. Racers watch out for traps and speed ahead to win the ultimate title of World¿s Wackiest Racer! Wacky Widgets are collected during the race to gain ¿Wacky Powers,¿ as well as a character¿s super-special ¿Way Out Wacky¿ power, which can be used to gain the upper hand over sly opponents.

In this game, players race along the circuits in hopes to open more tracks for the wacky racers to compete. But this is no easy task. Instead of pushing an accelerator button, players have to shake the wii mote to speed up the car (or dash, as it's known in game). Steering is done via the control stick on the nunchuck. New to this version of the game is the "Way Out Wacky Power". This is a power linked directly to whichever racer you're controlling: for example, Penelope Pitstop has the ability to charm other drivers so they can't steer. Peter Perfect has a closeup that zooms in on him so the other racers can't compete. Pat Pending has a shrink ray, etcetera.
One more thing: the reason players can't be Dick Dastardly is because he appears in cut scenes, usually setting up mini games for the wacky racers to dodge his traps. Some of the mini games are fun while others are frustrating. you'll never know what you're going to get until you see the cartoon/cutscene begin.
+Well done characters/cars.
+Varied race tracks
+Fun Mini Games.
+The ability to select your favorite wacky racer.
-Arm gets tired after a few races.
-No ability to play with the Mean Machine
-Some powers *such as Pat Pending's Shrink Ray* are really hard to control.
I picked up this game for fifteen dollars, I actually don't recommend paying much more for it. It's fun, but with games like Mario Kart Wii out there, it can be quickly overlooked. Also when compared to Mario Kart, Wacky Races doesn't look like it can hold up quite well.

But I gave it another try and it was fun.
With the wii you make the car go faster as fast as you shake your controller.Read more
