    It is the very definition of an average game, and does nothing to pay homage to the original movie, merely taking up six times the shelf space it should and damning any of the current platforms to yet another throwaway licensed game that simply wasn't needed.

    Cars was a pretty good movie, but not Pixar's best. The other day my mom said shed buy me this game as we were in wallmart. I like Cars was a pretty good movie, but not Pixar's best. The other day my mom said shed buy me this game as we were in wallmart. I like racing games and own most of them on PSP I have many other racing games the one I like most right now is NFS shift but I don't have that one on PSP. This game looks good much better that other PSP racing games. the sun effects in the game make it look as good as NFSS on 360, all the FX and levels look next gen. The game play isn't as difficult as I'm used to it seams i can get 1st place strait away and not have any trouble staying there however the extra modes are way more difficult and it took me a few goes to pass them all. There are also minigames all based on new Pixar cartoons. They are also fun there is a big ramp jump game, where you have to land on a target to gain points and there is also a halfpipe game where you have to avoid pipes to get to the end. Overall the game is fun and has lots of pickups which makes you play the tracks over and ovar, it's much harder trying to collect everything and still win the race. I'm giving it a 9 cause I didn't think a game based on a movie to be any good. Expand
