Come on guys! I know
that I might have been poisoned from the get go for this game due to my
hatred of the frog commercials that were on TV and the absolute lack of
charm of the main character. Add to that the fact that all the Crazy
Frog toys still sitting on stores shelves, marked down and still not
selling. Put all that to one side and you can then approach the game
with something only amounting to distaste for the main character.
In case you did not guess, this is a racing game,
however its one almost devoid of any charm. There is a world populated
by the characters of the Crazy Frog world, however as the whole world is
based on a CG character designed to sell ring tones you are immediately
left in the cold and I felt that I could not grab onto a character and
feel as though it was mine.
This is one of those games where you can tell itís
been released in a hurry to tie in with another product promoting the
character. The state of play is dodgy at the best of times and the
placement of weapons ordinary. Whilst you have great games like Mario
Kart that have been put together perfectly with a great balance of
weapons and also arenas to race in, Crazy Frog simply becomes mundane
About the only thing that rises from mediocrity in
the game are its graphics, that is not to say that they are good, only
that they are not as bad as the rest of the game. There are a number of
mini games and battle modes in the game but they donít rise above any
other stage of the title.
This is a game that maybe little kids will play
without too much complaint but anyone over the age of about eight will
become bored pretty darn quick. Personally, unless you love your ring
tones waaaaayyy too much, Iíd be giving this a wide berth.
