The tracks have different modes of transportation, so the game is not technically a ‘kart racer.’ But since it uses the same handling style and such in all cases, they may as well just be karts with pretty covers on them. That’s not too bothersome. What’s going to get you is the fact that of the vast myriad of Disney characters in existence, you get to play with... three; and only two of them from the start (Chip and Dale). Now, mind you, I was a huge fan of Chip ‘n Dale’s Rescue Rangers in my youth, but I really wanted to see a little more Walt Disney Magic in this Magical Racing Tour. Yes, the full motion video is stunning, with Jiminy Cricket looking disturbingly lifelike, but I want my favorite characters! If not Mickey, then at least Goofy and Donald and his nephews and... ugh.
The music in Walt Disney World Quest is straight from the Disney archives, and it shows. You’ll hear ‘It’s a Small World’ and other classic Disney favorites, all reproduced in rather good style. Unfortunately, the music rarely seems to be the pumping driving-game type. Racing games is the one genre where I actually don’t mind generic pumping techno tracks -- they help get my blood flowing. Of course, this game isn’t necessarily tailored for me. Perhaps the younger mindset would enjoy it more, neh?
