Excerpt: I played the heck out of some Hot Wheels as a kid. Not that I had some massive set I now keep under glass as a collector or anything, because most of the cars and trucks I had were literally played to pieces by the time I was 10, I think. Those things weren't made to be put under glass.
Excerpt: Leveraging their Hot Wheels property, THQ has released Hot Wheels: Velocity X. Built on the well defined futuristic race/combat model, this game is held up by dated graphics and terrible controls. For now you're better off in the toy aisle looking for Hot Wheels joy. Click here.
Pros: ups: Cars look cool and there are lots of them to unlock.
Cons: downs: Bad controls; dated graphics; lame story mode
