If you must have one PSX cartoony racer, make it either "Looney Tunes Racing" or "Crash Team Racing" or "Speed Punks" or "S.C.A.R.S" or "TYCO Assault with a Battery" or... (three minutes later)... or, if you find it really cheap and you love the toon, "Woody Woodpecker Racing". Not a bad game, just dated and uninspired.

La réalisation est honorable, mais l'animation manque de nervosité. Les sensation ne sont pas au rendez-vous, et la maniabilité connait des ratés. Un jeu de karts qui n'innove pas donc, et qui se contente de trop peu pour satisfaire les acheteurs potentiels.

Enfin, côté réalisation, les décors sont colorés et respectent parfaitement l'esprit du dessin animé, mais ils manquent considérablement de finesse même si ils sont très variés. De même, les personnages et leur véhicules ne sont pas excessivement détaillés, et c'est plutôt par la couleur que vous ferez la différence entre chacun deux. Les animations sont par contre relativement fluides et précises, même si elles restent assez lentes dans l'ensemble, ce qui nuit quelque peu au plaisir de jeu. Pour le son enfin, les musiques font très (trop) arcade et risquent de vous lasser rapidement, tout comme les effets sonores qui semblent tout droit sortis de l'Amstrad de votre musée local...

Woody Woodpecker Racing ne détrônera pas les maîtres du genre sur consoles. Le gameplay est trop confus, et les circuits manquent d'intérêt. Les plus jeunes auront du mal à s'y retrouver, d'autant que l'humeur joyeuse du pivert ne transparaît pas dans le jeu.

WindowsDaily Radar
So, does Woody Woodpecker Racing come through as a game? For us, it didn't. It's a stark, bleak view of reality rife with violence and a "survival of the fittest" attitude that worked well in the days before modern science. However, with medical miracles and the highest average lifespan known in our short existence on this planet, we have to think that we've evolved beyond hitting each other over the head with frying pans and retractable boxing gloves. While children may find this game fun, its imitation of the difficulty level seen in life may turn off all but the most rugged child. And even then, perhaps an Elmo game or even the Teletubbies are more appropriate. We just don't have the space to go into their life views.

PlayStationAll Game Guide
All in all, there is nothing to set Woody Woodpecker Racing apart from the host of imitators out there, and there is a lot about it that puts it down to the back of the pack. You're much better off with more polished kart racers like Diddy Kong Racing, CTR: Crash Team Racing. Unless you are a serious Walter Lantz fan, avoid this game.

Weshalb tun uns die Entwickler das immer wieder an? Es gibt so viele gute Fun-Racer, da braucht doch niemand mehr solch ein trauriges Game. Nicht nur, dass die technische Umsetzung antiquiert wirkt (Pop-Ups, Slowdowns) - es fehlt vor allem an neuen Ideen, um dem arg strapazierten Genre wieder etwas abzugewinnen. Es reicht einfach nicht, eine halbwegs bekannte Comic-Figur (und so toll fand ich Woody nie) über Fantasiekurse zu jagen und darauf zu spekulieren, dass die Leute das Ding schon kaufen werden. Wenn Fun-Racer, dann bitte welche mit neuen Einfällen!

PlayStationPlaystation Illustrated
Previously I thought that Renegade Racers was the bottom of the barrel when it came to kart racing. But now there's a new 'champ' -- Woody Woodpecker Racing. With lackluster graphics, uninspired gameplay, and an AI that is damn near impossible to beat, WWR offers nothing of value to the gaming world, kart racing fans or not. Unless you enjoy playing bad games, or absolutely must have every kart racer released, you'd do very, very well to stay far away from this stinker.

Doch die Strecken sind leider unspektakulär und unübersichtlich, Siege nur mit viel Glück möglich: Einmal irgendwo angetitscht, schon braust die Konkurrenz fast uneinholbar von dannen. Das nervt vor allem im kurzem Weltmeisterschaftsmodus, wenn Sie dadurch das erste Rennen vermasseln.

Aside from the more sim-like (and old-in-the-tooth) Manic Karts and the more recent, and surprisingly entertaining, Lego Racing, the PC doesn't really have a definitive kart game. Woody Woodpecker Racing brings little to the genre; even if you don't expect more than a few cheap thrills from a game like this, you're still better off playing... well, you're better off buying a console and playing one of the innumerable superior kart-racing games on your platform of choice.

PlayStationGame Informer Magazine
To its core, Woody Woodpecker Racing is a clone of Crash Team Racing. Of course, it’s not even in the same league as CTR. I am growing so tired of cheap rehashes. I mean, how many more generic cart racers do we actually need? This late in the PlayStation’s life, a game really needs to bring some new ideas to the table to warrant a purchase. Woody Woodpecker doesn’t, so don’t buy it, don’t rent it, don’t even look in its direction.

WindowsGame Over Online
When the checkered flag comes out and the champagne is poured, Woody Woodpecker Racing is as generic a kart racing game as they come. Those features that are unique to the title, like the vehicle variety and the side attack, aren't significant enough to overshadow the extremely poor and frustrating gameplay, the lackluster visuals and the limited controls. For a game intended for younger audiences, Woody Woodpecker Racing misses the boat completely. Bottom line, steer clear of Woody Woodpecker Racing.

Das alles gerät dank der schlecht kontrollierbaren Gefährte zur Fieselübung für Geübte, grafisch reißt die Rennerei auch wenig.

Woody Woodpecker Racing ist ein Rennspiel, bei dem Sie mit der bekannten Comicfigur oder einem ihrer fünf Cartoon-Kollegen in kleinen Buggies über mehr oder minder einfallsreiche Strecken düsen. Auf der Straße liegende Power-Ups bewirken, dass sich die gegnerischen Wagen verlangsamen beziehungsweise das eigene Gefährt beschleunigt, Sprengladungen verschießt oder Tomaten auf die Konkurrenten wirft.
