The game would benefit from a mode where you can play as Wile
E., setting traps for the Road Runner, but it’s a fairly entertaining (if
overly simplistic) game with charming visuals and nice renditions
of such classical tunes as the “William Tell Overture” and “Flight of
Road Runner is a spotty affair that is sometimes brilliant, but occasionally cringe-worthy. It's sad that the best thing I can say about it is that it's not a total misfire, as maligned licensed games largely tend to be. To put it another way, Road Runner is thankfully no Toxic Crusaders, but it's not in the same league as DuckTales, either.
Road Runner is not for everyone, but action fans who enjoy the cartoon will probably like the game.
Road Runner stays true to the essence of the cartoons on which it’s based, but there’s a reason the cartoons only last a few minutes. Any additional time and the viewers would grow weary of the shtick. So it is with Road Runner: perfect for five minutes, tiresome for anything over.
Road Runner was a mildly entertaining game in the arcade. However, this NES port is simply too hard and repetitive to be worth your time. If you don't give up on the game after the first cheap death, then I guarantee you'll have tuned out by the 1,000th. This game may have had good ideas, but somebody forgot to include them in this NES port.
