Good

Good Game, but hard to see.

First let me start off by saying that there is not a heaping bunch of games for kids for the Xbox 360. So as a gamer with gamer kids I keep an eye out for anything that looks half way decent. I was excited to see a Looney Tunes title.

First off let me say my kids love the game, I find the game fun enough to even play with out them once in while. Expect this game to be like Shrek, or any other generic travel from point A to point B and smash up things that get in your way with special XXX-B-Y combos. However they comments the characters make are great, and you can expect to see most of the cartoon characters from the cartoon.

The downside to the game is the camera is hard to control, and at a few points you just flat can not see where you are going. However for me the worst part of the game how dark it is in spots. The screen is so dark at times; you can not even see the character you are controlling let alone any thing it is supposed to be doing. I think most will find this very frustrating at times. I did notice that the product placement for California Raisins did not have any shading issues. The last downside I have found is that when playing co-op if one character dies, they can not join back in till the survivor makes it to a checkpoint.

With all of those negatives for my family, we still found it to be a fun game. Even my wife who sits in the den reading while we play will chuckle from the games dialog. Over all a fun game that could have been better if some one tested the camera and brightness levels.

Game - This game is pretty much awful. Even for a kids game, theres really no excuse for the horrible graphics that must look exactly like an XBOX 1 would have. As with most of these games, the camera is a tricky prospect, and this game seems to have the worst camera I have dealt with on the 360, and I've played almost every game. Like someone else mentioned, its way too dark as well, the levels are too cookie cutter, and the bosses are a joke. Even for kids, don't bother with this one, Cars, Open Season, ANYTHING over this foul game.

Achievements - The only reason to rent this game. With a guide, you should be able to knock out all the achieves in about 8 or so hours. There are about 50 of them, so they kind of flow through the game, meaning yoiu never get one of those annoying 3 hour stretches of playing without unlocking anything. The game can be played on easy, and there is not really any difficult parts to deal with, just a little with the time trials, but nothing serious. I'll assume you've played Open Season, Surfs Up and Cars for points if you are thinking about this game, and I will tell you, this is much more of an agonizing experience, there is nothing fun about it.

Great For Boosting Gamerscore

The game is perfect for kids 10 and under, but for anyone older it really is not great fun. Just a bunch of button mashing. It is great if I might add if you are looking for achievement boosting, the game really takes about 8 hours of gameplay to beat with at least 650 points to get just for beating the game!
