Interactive Entertainment. “The game captures the great irreverence of the Looney Tunes’ humor and allows players to take the characters where they have never gone before with next-generation gameplay and graphics,” he says.
Gamers will be able to take part in one- or two-player cooperative gameplay that includes fast-paced combat, puzzle solving challenges and vehicle-based action. The player will command an arsenal of ACME melee and projectile weapons and travel to such varied locations such as Camelot, Ancient Egypt, Mars, the Wild West and the trenches of World War II.
The Xbox 360 version will allow players to fully utilize real-time physics and animation blending and the Xbox Live online network will allow for two player cooperative game play. Players will also be able to take full advantage of the gesture controls in fighting, spin attacks, smash attacks and driving on the Wii version.
