Crazy Frog Arcade Racer is probably dangerous enough to be classified as a controlled substance, for it will surely drive anyone who plays it long enough into the throes of insanity, left holding 20 minute conversations with houseplants and trying to iron French toast "just to get the wrinkles out." Despite not looking like the ocular abortion that one would expect, I still wouldn't even wish it upon my worst enemy. If you play it, you clearly hate yourself. And freedom. And puppies.

Crazy Frog Racer really is up against the odds. The game doesn’t add anything new to the genre but borrows ideas from other racing games. There are quirky characters, weapons and a championship mode, but all of this can be found in just about any other racing game. What other games don’t have though is poor visuals, boring gameplay, repetitive music and limited game modes. The game isn’t unplayable, but it is far from being a good or enjoyable gameplay experience. Even at a budget price point the game is virtually impossible to recommend, simply because it is so far below average.

Get cracking, and initially the game's swooping, gravity-defying tracks are reminiscent of WipEout.
Sadly, that flash of promise is quickly smothered by some of the worst track design we've ever seen. If being horribly samey and hard to read weren't bad enough crimes, for a game based on speed, many of the turns are impossible to take at anything approaching race-winning velocity. Not tricky or even remotely challenging, but genuinely impossible. You want more? None of the power-ups are as effective as the default mines, so you rapidly stop trying them out. And the AI is rubbish. Lag behind and you might as well hit restart; get ahead and the race is yours.
Crazy Frog Racer absolutely reeks of fad- exploitation rush-job and feels like it's been cobbled together in a couple of hours. We recommend you go one better and give it a lot less of your time. Utter balls.
What you are about the read is a listing of irritations in my semi-adult life. This list is carefully selected. It gives you a view on a tired and not functioning game reviewer. That doesn’t mean these playful attempts for creating humour aren’t meant for the lesser part of society. Off course not, even you can enjoy my irritations, boredom and bad taste. You don’t read a Crazy Frog review if you have great taste. You do read a Crazy Frog review if you want to see what ISN’T great taste. Here we go!
J'ai l'immense honneur d'annoncer que Crazy Frog Racer est le gagnant du titre honorifique de première daube de l'année. Bien qu'on ne soit qu'au début 2006, il sera difficile de faire bien pire que cette production Neko Entertainment qui restera dans les annales pour son manque d'originalité. C'est laid, ennuyeux, injouable et beaucoup trop cher pour ce que c'est.
La liste des tares qui vous sautent littéralement aux yeux dès les premières parties est longue, beaucoup trop longue pour que ce jeu puisse prétendre s'attirer les faveurs de qui que ce soit. Que l'on soit fan du batracien (et il faut en vouloir) ou non, Crazy Frog Racer est une production honteuse, à la rue à tous les niveaux, qu'il s'agisse de technique ou de ludique. Un moyen grossier et limite malhonnête de profiter de l'engouement artificiellement créé autour d'un personnage déjà très fade voire ridicule à la base. Vous voilà maintenant prévenus.
