|WFRR is definetely a classic fav of mine. It's based of the movie of the same name, which is in turn based off of the book, "Who Censored Roger Rabbit?". If you haven't seen the movie before playing this game, I highly suggest doing so; the game will make a lot more sense if you do.
The graphics in ToonTown are good for a late 80's NES game. Not spectacular, but pretty good. Overall, in L.A., the graphics are pretty bland.
The fact that they used Jessica Rabbit's actual theme song is awesome. Most of the songs in the game are derived from the movie, which give it a feel of authenticity. However, indeed, the song when you die makes you want to throw your controller through the T.V.
Definetely could use work on the action sequences. Building up the punches can be annoying, but letting one off on roger (or an unsuspecting lady) and watching him fly across the room is priceless. The map screen is all birds eye, and I wish there were pedestrians...it kinda would've paved the way for Grand Theft Auto.
Overall, this game has really good replay value, is very classic, and very accurate to the movie. I enjoyed it immensely, and you might too.
If you like long, drawn out games that seem to go on endlessly with no "real" plot (even though there is one, trust me..) you will enjoy this game. I highly suggest you see the movie first though, otherwise, the game will just be retarded. It will definetely kill, if not torture and maim, some time. Definetely worth a look.

|This is a decent game, although it quickly becomes tedious and frankly boring. There's always that ONE item you just can't find, and eventually you just don't feel like trying any more...at least that's true for me, because i just use the code 3L3333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333 (3, L, then all 3s) to get everything i need to win, except the dynamite, which is at the store near your office and the detonator which is usually in the long skinny buildings near the toontown tunnel.
