Conclusion: The camera can be buggy and wander off in the wrong direction and the controls are a little sluggish Forza it aint! Decided to try to wring the points out of it but have found it to be a little buggy when it comes to registering events that have been completed etc. Played better, played worse, its mediocre, if that’s not damning it with faint praise.
Excerpt: Considering that THQ's Cars: Mater-National Championship , the latest installment of Disney/Pixar's Cars franchise, is geared toward the younger crowd, the graphics are quite fitting, even when displayed on the Xbox 360. However, if you are looking for the latest and greatest in this department, you will be disappointed. It's not to say that Mater-National doesn't look good, because it does.
Summary: Cars Mater-National offers a fresh adventure set in the super-fueled world of Radiator Springs, featuring all-new international characters vying for their chance to compete against Lightning McQueen in the First Annual Mater-National Race Festival.
Summary: Cars Mater-National
feels like more of an expansion pack than a true sequel, but it will of course (and already has) sell another bajillion copies for THQ. That being said, fans of the movie that haven't had enough of Lightning McQueen and friends yet will get some mileage out of this return to Radiator Springs.
Pros: A ton of races and other events to compete in., Some interesting gameplay modes.
Cons: Virtually no enhancements gameplay-wise over the first, Cars, game., The graphics are virtually unchanged from the Xbox 360 version of, Cars, , and Tailfin Pass in particular looks bad with flat-textured trees, washed out colors, etc.
Conclusion: Cars was a huge hit when it was released in cinemas last year and was accompanied with the usual video game cash in. A year on and all your favourite Cars are back in a brand new adventure. Its time to return to Radiator Springs and take part in the first ever Mater-National.
