Wacky Races would like to consider itself on a par with Micro Machines - in both, your input into the races is minimal. You can’t accelerate or brake, just simply waggle the Wii-mote to boost, and steer with the Nunchuk. Dick Dastardly occasionally steps in with simple minigame ‘booby traps’ for your racers to avoid, but they’re uninspired and disruptive to the flow of a race. Younger audiences might get a brief kick but racing fans should look elsewhere. Fun for young gamers but no substance as a ‘real’ racing game.
