Summary: I've played plenty of racing games over the years. I've also played plenty of Disney games over the years. What I've found with regard to the latter is that they're very much hit or miss. Considering that I wasn't thrilled by the film itself (though I thoroughly loved the first), my expectations were on the low side. All I really knew going in was that this was supposed to have a straightforward set of trophies to achieve.
Summary: My son is 2 years old and is at that age where he wants to be involved with everything daddy and mommy do. He loves Cars the movie so after reading many reviews I finally decided on this game. He really likes it. He is barely learning to use the controller but after the first day he learned to go forward and steer. He is not really good but he absolutely loves it! He thinks it is the coolest game ever. Love to see him so happy!
Summary: I ordered cars 2 for ps3 after enjoying toy story 3 with my son and looking for another game to play with him, and help him with. I wasn't sure at first if a kids racing game would have enough depth or replay value to keep the two of us entertained for more than a few days but I was pleasantly surprised. The game is basically a giant spy simulator, that's how the developers got around any kind of storyline or cut scenes.
Summary: This game is a great game for younger children who like racing/driving games. The graphics are pretty well done. It feels like your sitting there actually watching one of the movies, but you're controlling it. The sound is great, it never lagged. I also think that this isn't one of those "buy it and play it once" kind of games. It can keep you busy for a while. Overall a very great game.
