Eschewing the side-scrolling platform setup found in the Genesis version of the game, Taz-Mania for the Super NES is a behind-the-runner racing game in which a very nicely animated Taz walks, runs, jumps, and spins down the highway, attempting to catch a certain number of kiwi birds before time runs out. Hunters Bull Gator and Axl put glue, black holes, and other obstacles in the way, and the game automatically ends if the love-struck Tasmanian She-Devil catches up with our hero. An especially inventive happening occurs when a trembling Wendal T. Wolf jumps on Taz for protection, partially blocking his eyesight (and the gamer's view of the screen). Grunts, groans, and other cartoon-like sound effects offset the disappointingly ordinary music. Gameplay, though suffering a bit from sameness throughout the levels, is fast-paced, challenging, and enjoyable, and definitely makes Taz-Mania worth taking for a spin. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
