Summary: We had Hot Wheels Velocity-X on the PC and enjoyed it. Hot Wheels Beat That on the Wii doesn't have the same level of replayability as that old game. The environments (bowling alley, bedroom, etc.) are neat, but the novelty wears off quickly.
Summary: This was the first racing game purchased for our 7 year-old son. He was 6 at the time we got the Hot Wheels game and we never really got into playing it. He got Mario Kart this year and we all love playing it. Hot Wheels Beat That is far inferior overall, at least for younger kids.
Summary: The game is great for my kid since its not too complicated. Some of the cars look similar to actual cars he has in his collection. He loves seeing them on the TV set. This game will be too repetitive for teen or adult gamers. Steering can be annoying.
Summary: This game is Wii Wheel compatible and up to 2 players. There are 3 difficulties, Easy, Medium, and Hard (they are also referred as Turbo, Nitro, and Inferno modes). You must earn Hot Wheel Flame points in order to unlock Medium, Hard, and other tracks and cars.
