    As with Toy Story 3, Cars 2 is another great movie tie in to be enjoyed by kids. Obviously taking inspiration from Mario Kart, Disney Interactive gives a valiant effort in making a fun racing game. 4 player multiplayer is definately a major highlight.

    Games like this are not really the best of games of games but cars 2 will appeal to any Mario kart fan. The graphics are nice and glossy and the game plays smoothly. There is no story at all to the game! There are however events to complete in around 6 different chapters. These events can be played in free play and include races, hunter, and time trial events and more.

There is no story at all to the game! There are however events to complete in around 6 different chapters. These events can be played in free play and include races, hunter, and time trial events and more. The game can get repetative but people can try to get some of the achievements which will also unlock secret cars. Multiplayer is quite good where you can fight with one another or in a team. Weapons are not the best compared to Mario kart but this is one of the best contendors for it and by far the best movie game this year. An overall score of a high 70 or low 80. Expand

    This is a great movie game. The graphics look almost as good as the movie and the gameplay is almost as good as the Mario Kart games. The difficulty is a bit harder though.

    As a racing game for kids this is ideal, with easy to pick up and play controls and a variety of fun modes. However, with the removal of the sandbox style areas there is not much depth on offer here and just playing the same missions or multiplayer modes over and over again will rapidly lose its appeal. As a movie tie-in this game is certainly fun while it lasts but do not expect it to hold your attention, or that of your kids if you deign to give them a go, for long. Cars 2 is more Ka-chow than Ka-ching, but not by much.

    Driving in Cars 2 feels fantastic, and the somewhat original mechanics offer an experience you'll not find elsewhere. It's definitely more engaging in multiplayer however, and I'd recommend you play it with at least one other person.

    It's not up to Mario Kart standards, but for a family get together it's an entertaining alternative that sits well with all ages.
