Fun, But Short-Lived
Whiplash is a fun, hurmourous game published by Eidos, and has a clever story, setting, and gameplay. The entire game takes place in an animal research facility, and you play as some sort of weasal chained to an obnoxious rabbit named Redford, who are escaping the facility. Funny premise, right? The game comes off that way too. You primarily control the weasel, and use poor Redford as a tool. Yes, you read that right. You use Redford as a medivial flail as a weapon, and since he is so small, he can fit in cramped areas. Whiplash is a platforming game, and is pretty long, which is nice after seeing many many short games like this. The game is also very funny, with Redford making rude (and hilarious) comments to our mute weasel friend, and many animal-testing-themed jokes and missions. The graphics are nt superb, but they work well for the game. Music is forgetable. The worst part of the game is, like Voodoo Vince before it, that there are no extras whatsoever, and therefore no reason to play the game a second time. Overall, this is a fun, cheap game with a fairly long single-player mode, despite it's lack of ectras. Reccomended. Also see: Voodoo Vince, Psychonauts, Blinx 2.
