Uusi pelitalo Warner Brothers Interactive tuo markkinoille useampiakin pelejä, joissa kierrätetään piirretyistä tuttuja Looney Tunes -universumin hahmoja. Acme Arsenal on näistä ensimmäinen, ja samalla se on ensimmäinen tekemäni videoarvostelu. Olkaa hyvät.
Poor execution, no real personality and identical gameplay across multiple characters squash the fun factor like a 50-ton Acme anvil.
If you're a Looney Tunes collector and absolutely must own everything related to the franchise, pick this one up. Otherwise, you'll probably be disappointed with what Looney Tunes: ACME Arsenal has to offer. That's not to say it has no redeeming value - if you're truly after a vapid brawling experience, by all means, be our guest. Overall, however, AA is a shallow trip down license lane, and that's all, folks.
Looney Tunes: Acme Arsenal is a seriously flawed game that continually stops the player from reveling in old-time cartoon entertainment. It has more going for it later on, but even that doesn't make it worth the price of admission. There are plenty of great titles out there, expressly designed for the younger audiences, and we just can't say that this is one of them. It may seem appealing on the surface, and that smile we talked about will definitely surface at some point, but the overall production is irretrievably crippled.

Acme Arsenal ends up being a rather lacklustre game, which is a shame as the ideas behind it are relatively sound. It all comes off feeling a little undercooked. As if removed from the oven of development a little early, much of Acme Arsenal feels as though it is lacking in spirit and the game never manages to engage the player. Technical flaws also hamper what little enjoyment the game offers up.
So, bemühen wir nochmal die Spielspaß-Mathematik aus dem ersten Absatz: Schlecht designte Sprungpassagen + schreckliche Kameraführung + beschissenes Checkpunkt-System + öde Grafik = ein Spiel, bei dem nicht nur Liebhaber der Cartoons laut zu jaulen beginnen. Man kommt nicht umhin bösartige Absicht zu vermuten, denn so betriebsblind können die Entwickler unmöglich gewesen sein. ACME Arsenal hat nachweislich seine guten Seiten, namentlich den flotten Soundtrack, die brauchbare englische Sprachausgabe, die putzigen Figuren oder den Koop-Modus, der für geteiltes Leid sorgt. Aber der Rest ist so bedauernswert missraten, dass das auch nicht gerade irre gute Simpsons-Game in jeder Hinsicht als der perfekte Comicspiel-Messias erscheint. Eine Enttäuschung sondergleichen.
Don't bother with Looney Tunes: Acme Arsenal, not even for kids who you think won't know any better. It isn't fun, it certainly isn't funny, and the game's sketchier aspects are liable to fluster anyone who plays it.
Game Informer Magazine
With combat mechanics that feel diseased and platforming challenges that are never once thrilling, ACME Arsenal is a welcome addition to the year's worst list, and a game that will surely ruin Christmas for children with parents that buy games solely based on the license.
La bouille sympathique des Looney Tunes ne sauvera pas ce titre du naufrage absolu. Truffé de bugs, laid et totalement inintéressant, cet ACME Arsenal a de quoi faire rougir de honte la fameuse compagnie de divertissement qui y appose sa signature.
There's simply nothing redeeming about Acme Arsenal. It's an incredibly poor, woefully unentertaining use of a great license, and an absolute bore to play. It doesn't get nearly enough right to be anywhere close to average, and becomes its own worst enemy with a cavalcade of embarrassing glitches. There are many, many exponentially better PS2 games for kids, and absolutely no reason to give Acme Arsenal anything more than a passing look of disgust.
