I think it’s about time to share my thoughts on Crash & Dash on Wii.

The game is supposed to be like a party game like Mario Party where 4 players can join in and play together. There’s a total of 10 cars to play as but the Mean Machine can’t be playable which was a bit of a disappointment to me because it was my favourite car from the show and their drivers, Dastardly & Muttley were the reason I kept watching the show. Luckily the other 10 were playable including Red Max.

He somehow became my main racer in the game because of his Bomb Power. In some points of the races, The Double Zero will zoom past you and the others to gain the lead which somehow triggers a mini game in which you have to play. My absolute favourite is the one with the falling boulders! As soon as you approach the home stretch, you have to shake your Wiimote to dash ahead of the racers to win the race!

“But, how do I get my racer to go faster?” I hear you say? The gimmick is to stay on the screen to fill up your Mad Dash Meter. As soon as it’s full, you will gain a small cog. If you manage to use your Way-Out Wacky Power to destroy all the other racers’ cars, you will be given a “Super Screen Out”. This gives you two extra cogs for your chances to win the mad dash go a tad bit higher. If your racer crashes or is off-screen for 3 seconds, you’ll lose a cog. So you better stay on the screen!

Overall, the game’s alright, The models look beautifully made, The mini games are good and the only thing that’s bad about the game is that the Mean Machine not playable. So this game is given a 7.5/10.

So, do you agree with my review? Let me know.
