this game is one of the worst games that I have ever played. If you make it through the first level the control on the the second level will drive you insane. the screen is so dark that you cannot tell what you are doing half the time. basically everything about this game is a bust. Don't bother renting and please please DON'T BUY IT

Bad

Just another platformer, a lousy one at that.

So much that could be done with the looney tunes. Instead all the developers did was create a platformer that does nothing new.

The game starts off in a training level. It's nothing but Bugs in a empty set of rooms with some robots to kill. No real reason of why he is there. You spend about 20 minutes killing the same enemy over and over. In the process you are supposed to be learning the controls. Instead you just get hand cramps.

Next up we have the controls. Once again we have a developer that didn't spend 10 minutes thinking about how to make the unique controls work well. Instead they just sat there and thought "well the character is swinging something left to right, so we will have the player do the same!" The result is that you keep performing the same tiring repetitive motion.

Loving the looney tunes and not wanting to give up so easy, I decided to keep playing through the first level. You are put into a mad scientist level which looks like the same cartoon that Gosimer is in. You start off with Marvin being thrown into the level by Taz with a giant rubber band. Why he is doing this? Who knows. Suddenly you (Bugs) is dropped off in the same level. Then Marvin goes who knows where and you continue fighting more robots jumping about. Getting the occasional different weapon that really aren't that interesting. I played 1/2 way through the level and was so bored I gave up.

The makers of this game seem to have missed on everything that makes a good game.

1) Player understand and knows what is going on and why.
2) Player has a decent control scheme.
3) Levels are designed so that player has desire to see the end.
4) Player sees new and interesting things in level. Exploring is fun.
5) Weapons are interesting.

My advice, skip this game.

Ok. So this game was great for a single player. Multi-player just split the screen so when one player was down, the player had to wait for the other player to reach a check point. And there was not really any interaction.

Camera angles seemed to change rather randomly, but that could have been lack of finesse with the nunchuk.

Was great fun for one player with great graphics and fun action.
