Looney Tunes Space Race (DC)

Editor's Choice: Silver

With all the random license usages out there, particularly with racing games, LTSR is one of the few that actually makes some sense and plays really well. The Warner Bros. gang is competing for a lifetime supply of ACME products, and they use a ton of different gags in each race to try to stop one another. Clever items like the "instant hole" and falling elephants are used to inhibit your opponents' progress. A dozen different outer-space tracks plus several unlockable bonus races keep things interesting, and the environments have plenty of background action without hurting the framerate. Most racers ride a character-appropriate craft (Wile E. has a novelty rocket, Bugs a flying carrot, etc.) and the dead-on voice talent keeps the witty commentary fresh. Because of the abundance of combative items, races usually end up a battle for a nose-length lead at the finish, as players travel the course in a wolf-pack formation getting assaulted in turn. Aside from a couple minor animation ticks, LTSR may not be very original, but it's good-looking fun for all ages.
