  • Excerpt: There are a lot of people who are going to walk past Cars 2 without giving it a second thought. After picking up my copy, I stopped at a local fast food place for a quick meal. The drive-thru worker saw the game sitting next to me and questioned my choice of game. "You actually wasted your money on a crap kid's game? Should have gone with... trails off listing current top sellers in attempt to proclaim his superior tastes...

  • 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. It isn’t the kind of game that “hardcore” gamers should rush out and buy, nor will it permanently convert any super fans of the likes of Mario Kart .

  • Excerpt: The Cars movie franchise was a surprise hit when it was released in 2006. A Walt Disney and Pixar venture, the film was about a hot-shot race car named Lightning McQueen who ended up in the run-down town of Radiator Springs, accidentally tearing up their main road and being forced to fix it before he can make it to a race in California. The original game unsuccessfully attempted to use the movie’s material in an open-world experience.

Cars 2: The Videogame Review

ME Gamers
5 July 2011
  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Most gamers will know that games based on movies tend to turn out rather poorly. It’s very rare that a game is able to capture even a fraction of the movie’s original charm or style, so it’s easy to dismiss these cheap knock-offs. But I was pleasantly surprised by Cars 2 on the Playstation 3, and I’m happy to say that if you enjoyed the move, you’re likely to have just as much fun with the game.

  • Summary: Normally, when a kiddie racer trespasses on the hallowed ground laid by Mario Kart, reviewers instinctively get the knives out and prepare to rip it to shreds. But when a game’s as much fun as Cars 2, it’s easy to forgive the sacrilege. Like Mario Kart, the secret of Cars 2’s success is that it’s simple to play, but a bitch to master.
