Conclusion: Whatever your feelings about Cars , arguably Pixar’s least popular movie series, you can’t deny the quality of Cars 2: The Video Game . It’s everything that typical movie games aren’t, being fun, content-rich and technically solid.
Summary: Cars 2: The Video Game seeks out and captures a gold medal with its high quality graphics and sounds, loads of options and modes. If this were an actual car, this would be the premium options package and you’d be driving in serious style.
Excerpt: Okay, so I know what most of you are thinking, most movie-title based games are probably not worth their weight in Blu-ray. As a second condition, if the game happens to be based on a children’s movie advertised on lunch boxes, playing cards and stationery, then it may be best to avoid it.
