The Looney Toons franchise has always been hugely popular amongst younger audiences, although primarily in television. Now Looney Toons comes to Nintendo 64 in the form of Taz Express.
New to Nintendo 64, Taz Express is consistent with the cartoon series. He’s as lazy as ever, and now it’s up to you to give him a little exercise. Of course it isn’t that simple; there has to be a motive, as with any adventure title. Basically, She-Devil, the missus of the house, forces Taz to get a job. Your task is to help him do his job as a delivery boy and do it well. Once you have your parcel you have to make your way through the hazards that lie ahead of you. These are comprised of bog-standard platform qualities, large jumps, mazes and boss levels.
This game is 3D as standard, although you don’t have the capability to alter the camera angles as you please, forcing the Taz World into linearity. Given that Taz Express is aimed at a younger audience, the linear experience doesn’t affect the fun factor at all. So if you’re as hungry as Taz for 3D-platform action, then give Taz Express a go.
