The gameplay is excellent and centers around more action-oriented challenges than the Genesis version. Each level offers something new and the graphics look just like the show! And who can forget the snappy Animaniacs theme song?

A wonderful game that puts Konami back to form! Animaniacs has it all: killer graphics, great sound, challenging levels - in general, everything you'd expect from a Konami game! Fans of the cartoon series will definitely want to check out this title - it is as faithful as Buster Busts Loose was to it's source material.

Also, this game could of been a bit more challenging, but still, I recommend this one to everyone, even those who HATE the show. Please remember this is coming from someone who dislikes the show himself, does that tell you how good it is? Get this one!

Playing Animaniacs is like watching an episode of the cartoon, only it's not quite as bust-a-gut funny...but how could it be? It does come really close to capturing the let-it-all-hang-out feel of the show, though. The details shine through: when the nurse walks by our heroes, Yakko and Wakko instantly become mush - and if you stop playing, even for a second, the Warners begin to do a sassy dance. Unidentifiable animals shaking their butts; now that's what I call entertaining.
Mega Fun
Ich liebe Zeichentrickfilme, deren einziger Sinn es ist, unter jedem erdenklichen Vorwand pures Chaos zu erzeugen. Dieses Element wurde zwar in das Spiel übernommen, jedoch mußte ich schmerzlich die Spieltiefe, die man aus glorreicheren Vorgängern wie Tiny Toon gewohnt war, vermissen. Wie viele Jump‘n Runs der neueren Generation blendet Animaniacs über einen gewissen Zeitraum mit grafisch gelungenen Gags, Anspielungen auf bekannte Filme und stimmungsvollen Szenarien. Hat man alle Levels gesehen kann man das Teil getrost einmotten; und da die Level-Anzahl auch nicht berauschend ist, geht dies leider relativ schnell. Nervig erschien mir auch die permanente Wiederholung der Turmrettungs-Szene. So bunt und abwechslungsreich die Serie auch sein mag, Animaniacs bekommt schnell den Motivationsgehalt einer x-ten TV-Wiederholung. Der Sound wurde zudem mit Gewalt auf Tiny Toon getrimmt und nervt binnen Minuten; ein Modul, das man nur als Genre-Fan wirklich braucht.

Das Spiel ist an einigen Stellen sehr schwierig und die Stages teilweise unnötig lang und manchmal unfair. Ihr werdet etliche Versuche brauchen, bis Ihr weiter, bzw. am Endgegner vorbeikommt. Zudem ist die Grafik manchmal etwas einfallslos, aber insgesamt recht nett anzuschauen. Dem Ganzen fehlt jedoch letztendlich der gewisse ‚Kick‘: Was hier geboten wird, gibt‘s bereits zuhauf und zudem noch in besserer Qualität (siehe Mario Brothers).
All in all, it is a good game. Despite how much I’ve sweared at it and complained, I really do love it. It might just be the fangirl in me speaking, but I doubt it. It made it to the top of GameCola’s Best Games of 1994 list, so other people must agree with me! The end is satisfying and something you would expect from the three trouble makers. I won’t spoil it here, but if you want to see it without playing the game, it’s right here. Well, that’s it for me. Farewell, and “g’night everybody!”

If you really like the show and are a fan of this terrific trio, then you may want this simple, thoughtless game. But real animation-maniacs will want to stick to a better-looking Mouse.
Animaniacs looks and sounds just like the show, but the similarities end there. This is clearly just another attempt by executives to cash in on the fans’ loyalties. If you are a fan, buy the DVDs, buy the toys, but please, let the Warners remain locked in the water tower.
