Players encounter 12 new playable characters making their video game debut. A new and improved Lightning McQueen comes fully equipped with special racing kits, allowing him to better maneuver brand new, action-packed tracks that takes players to metro city streets, the Baja desert and sandy beaches. In addition, players are now able to modify Lightning McQueen’s wheels, rims, hood, side skirt, rear bumper, spoiler and paint with special customization features, giving Lightning a personalized style and look that has never been seen before. As players compete in this high-speed, racing adventure game, they can utilize Lightning McQueen’s newly designed drifting abilities and perform "Kachow" poses for enthusiastic reporters and fans encountered throughout the game. Cars Race-O-Rama also features multiplayer mini-games based on Disney-Pixar’s "Cars Toons," a series of animated shorts that are currently being aired on the Disney Channel. [THQ] Collapse

  1. Cars: Race-O-Rama offers a lot of fun to everybody – doesn’t matter if you are young or not.
  2. Cars Race-O-Rama is a half-hearted effort throughout; all the pieces fit together but nothings stands out as particularly noteworthy and every facet of the game seems to be in need of a couple extra layers of polish.
  3. There's certainly no shortage of content in Race-O-Rama, and quite a few of the tracks are truly enjoyable. However, the overworld has had little love put into it, and there are many minor issues and bugs that come together to create a fairly uninspired package.
  4. In the end, if you have the other two then this game should make a solid addition to the previous games; however before you spend full price on this game you might want to check the used games bin for one of the two other Cars games that have been released before.
  5. Cars Race-O-Rama tosses a lot of content at you, but it can't disguise that the game isn't very fun to play.
  6. Cars Race O' Rama had some nice new additions, but in the end just wasn't as fun as racing in Lightning McQueen's world should be.

    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.

The plot is stupid and the characters are watery. They also committed the cardinal sin of racing games, which is putting the characters comments on a loop, meaning you hear the same 5 or 6 phrases every time you do something. The controls are simple enough, which is good, because the target audience is the only people Disney caters to anymore: 5-year-olds. Expand
