Someone explain to me what this game accomplishes by having disturbing-looking animal characters that it otherwise wouldn't have had it been human or well-crafted, fully stylized animal characters.

Wasn't the racism in Zootopia that !!!SPOILERS!!! the hunter animals WEREN'T racist and that the white-and-black painting was artificially created and perceived by the characters own emotions and prejudices?

“Fantastical yet grounded” That’s a description every writer probably yearns for

I always wonder about people creating analogies to our world in their fantastical one? Do they just keep padding themselves on their backs for how smart they are without realizing, different rules make for different consequences? An atheist in a fantasy world with Gods and Magic is far more radical than in ours and yeah, even if predators stopped feeding on other animals at some point in Zootopia/Chicken Police, the fear is at least grounded in a stereotype based on historical fact and disproportionate behaviour. Very much unlike real world racism.

What is it with anthropomorphic animal stories containing very poorly constructed allegories for racism?

They read Animal Farm and saw how successful that was its allegorical tale of the USSR and said "yeah, we can do that with racism" except, they're not exactly Orwell.

They could had made the idea of racism ludicrous for animals at the very least. I remember in Blacksad, the dark color animals are supposed to represent black people. But because they are animals it's hard to take the idea seriously and all the racist animals looks like buffons. I don't expect Maus levels of allegory but writers could at least take the consequence of racism seriously, not just some uninspired background like "my boss is racist so he clearly is an asshole...or a villain".

"Suggests a lack of understanding regarding what racism even is." Well, ain't that applicable to a lot of people these days.

Not really since Zootopia deals with racism and animalistic nature. As the review mentions, the game drops those themes pretty quickly.

I haven't played the game so I don't know enough yet but I'd say it looks more like specism which doesn't exist IRL which is why it's different from racism as it should be.

@Shuizid Conceivably there could be two species which are very similar, with the most important difference between them being that the two are unable to interbreed. Also, if there were multiple species of person, with substantial actual differences between the species, it is also possible that people could believe in other additional supposed differences which don't actually exist, and that could still be bad. But yes, in general I agree.

@Gwen The reason racism is bad, is because it has no factual basis. However speciacism HAS that. There is a fundamental difference inbetween predators and pray. Even if characters no longer act according to those traits, being afraid of someone with actual fangs or in return considering someone without them to be weaker is not some made-up attribution, it's a biological fact. That's why those comparisons fall flat. People of different "races" are biologically almost identical. Species are not.

But it's called "racism" ingame. And it seems to be treated just as unjustified as racism - but speciecism is justified.
