  1. Cars: Mater-National is a decent racing game that will probably satisfy fans of the film, but it’s also flawed in numerous ways that make it difficult to recommend over the countless better racers out there.
  2. Given the depth of play it could have been less, but the graphics and sound help pull it up. This game should appeal to younger fans of the Pixar film, but more veteran players will want to pass on it.
  3. As a racing game, Cars is good, straightforward, family fun. As a movie license, it's a must for all fans. [Christmas 2007, p.88]
  4. While still quite playable for several hours, the lack of true innovation or noteworthy upgrades makes Mater-National seem like more of a rushed expansion than a full-fledged - or fully necessary - follow-up to a memorable kid-friendly racer.
