Race to the finish line as you live all the fun and excitement
of the Walt Disney Pictures presentation of a Pixar Animation
Studios film, Cars. Play as all your favourite characters
as you help Lightning McQueen capture the coveted Piston Cup
Championship. The game is a story-based racing adventure game
that relives all of the key moments of the movie. It features
more than 10 playable characters from the film and an open
world environment with more than 50 races...
based on the latest Disney/Pixar animated movie and is
aimed at the younger gamer. While there's plenty of content
to keep older gamers interested, most adult will find this
a little too simplistic. Kids will have a blast though.
is so much variety in this game that kids will spend ages
exploring the various mini games. Highlights, for me, included
tipping the tractors, the speedway races (a little like Destruction
Derby - without the destruction); and generally exploring
the vast landscapes and opening new bizarre missions and playable
characters (including Luigi, Sally Carrera and Mater). There
are mini-races, mini-missions and quests that can be completed
across the duration of the game (like finding the missing
postcards that are scattered all around the main landscape).
For the most part though you play as Lightning McQueen as
you race to unlock your skills and compete in the Piston Cup
level of difficulty is just hard enough for the majority of
kids to have a few stabs at each race - although older players
will probably sail though them without any problem and instead
be more interested in exploring the open world environment.
And that's the beauty of this game - THQ have tried, and succeeded,
to make this work on various levels.
only real problem is the way the camera can shift erratically
- and in some of the mini-games it will freeze at a strange
angle that makes completing that section a lot more difficult.
the whole Cars is a lot of fun. Young fans of the movie
will be most impressed with this offering - especially as
they get to interact with all their favourite characters -
which are just as big, colourful and funny as they are in
the movie. While I really can't recommend this to anyone over
the age of 12 (there's probably not quite enough here to keep
them playing longer than a week), for it's target market,
this is one of the best kids games I've seen in a long time.
