  1. Hot Wheels: Beat That! is fun because it doesn’t pretend to be something that it isn’t. It’s enjoyable because it’s fanciful and it is something familiar at the same time.
  2. Hot Wheels: Beat That! would have made a solid gift for a 6-8 year old kid looking for a new racing game if the game was valued-priced. At full retail price, though, it’s near impossible to recommend the game for purchase. It’s not that anything is inherently broken but it is incredibly uninspired.

    Although the gameplay isn't quite broken since it's still physically possible to participate in races, it just isn't fun.

    Worked great for me! Thumb pad steers better that turning the controller, but that makes it hard to fire the weapons and turn at the same time. A fun drive for those of us who had these toys. Expand

    Not all bad. For those of us who grew up with Hot Wheels and imagined racing around our bed room, it fits the bill. It doesn't hold interest for long. After 30min to an hour your done; although you will pick it up again. Two player battle resembles the first twisted metal. Expand

    This game is obviously aimed at audiences who played or are playing with these cars, but even i you are (or did) play with these cars you will still find this game boring, while the controls aren't broken they still aren't the ideal racing controls, they feel loose and at times wonky, and the graphics are abysmal, but the worst part of the game is that it's just plain boring, nothing really makes you want to play it, I've only played it a half-hour and I'm already ready to never play it again, so do yourself and others a favor and when you come across this in the bargain bin bury it underneath the other games.

    The game did not work on the Wii. I was directed first to Activision; then to Activision Value. The website is difficult to navigate. While the game's concept is great, I would not recommend this game. Expand
