Conclusion: Cars Race O Rama is not a game for adults obviously, but the little ones out there will like it I’m sure. It’s bright, it’s colorful and it’s fun really. It features all of the characters from the movie and even some new ones to change things around a bit. Cars Race O Rama has tons of stuff to do that will keep the children busy for a long time and most likely coming back for more.
Pros: Tons of content for hours and hours worth of play, New characters and mini games, Features all of what Cars is known for
Cons: Not for adults or older children/teens, very short games, Graphics are sub-par, Controls are kind of odd
Racing with Cars buddies teaches kids how to compete.

Summary: Parents need to know that this entertaining racing game features the characters from the Disney/Pixar Cars movie Cars Race O Rama offers a story mode where you take on Chick Hicks and his team of racers, as well as a nice collection of mini races and activities. With the DS version, two friends can play using the DS local wireless with only one game cartridge needed.
Excerpt: Few games get a sequel let alone a third iteration. I can barely believe it has been three years since Disney Pixar Cars was released. Cars Race O Rama is the third game, and Tantalus (editor: the developer) knows what they are doing. This Nintendo DS game is very similar to the Playstation Portable version. This is cool, because the PSP game is pretty good. The visuals may not be as pretty in the DS version, but the loading times are way less.
Excerpt: The original Cars movie from 2006, whose sequel shouldn’t be in theatres until 2011, has already spawned two games based on the movie, so it would be easy to simply chalk Cars Race-O-Rama up to a holiday cash grab (it wouldn’t be the first one I can think of though). I think you really have to consider a game’s audience when reviewing a game like this.
Excerpt: When the Disney movie Cars came out, kids everywhere went crazy over the spirited race car, Lightning McQueen. From then on, Disney has made toys, apparel and even video-games based on the movie. Now, the recently released Cars Race-O'-Rama is on store shelves and kids will definitely be taking a look at it. Cars Race-O'-Rama centers on Lightning McQueen and his rivalry with Chick Hicks. The small plot involves Chick Hicks' racing school and his students.
Excerpt: Der rote Flitzer Lightning McQueen dreht wieder seine Runden. In der mittlerweile dritten Ausgabe der Kinofilmumsetzung „ Cars “ dürfen Sie wieder das Steuer übernehmen. Mehr dazu lesen Sie in unserem Review. Im Prinzip ist die Handlung des Spiels schnell erklärt. Sie schlüpfen abermals in die Rolle des roten Möchtegern-Ferraris und wollen eine Trophäe gewinnen. Wie der Titel schon sagt, geht es in dieser „Rennserie“ um die Race-O-Rama-Trophäe.
Pros: Tuning, Witzige Nebenrennen
Cons: Kurzer Story-Modus, Für erfahrene Spieler zu leicht
