  1. Cars is not the most complex racing game around, but it manages to capture the Pixar spirit very well. Aside from this, it’s an enjoyable game with solid gameplay and a great presentation.
  2. Cars is quite simply one of the best movie-to-game conversions in the history of the sketchy genre.
  3. Licensed audio tracks ands voice acting from the movie makes the audio worth listening to.
  4. The good news is that the gameplay is more delectable than usual movie-licensed fluff, with hours of racing fun for one or two players and a fun presentation that fans of the movie will adore.
  5. Cars, is an entertaining game and certainly holds true to the movie which will please fans no end. I encountered no real issues other than it was perhaps a little lacking in content, but that’s from an experienced older gamer point of view.
  6. It was a cute but unimaginative game for pre-teens when it debuted for the original Xbox this summer, and this 360 version of Pixar's animated movie Cars is essentially a high-resolution copycat. [Holiday 2006, p.76]
  7. Painfully lacking in every area, lacking any thrill factor, excitement or variety. [Jan 2007, p.90]

    Bueno el juego es cumplidor si lo comparas con otros juegos basados en peliculas para niños.
    El juego se lleva a cabo despues
    de lo ocurrido en la pelicula.
    La historia esta regular, el gameplay es bueno y el ritmo de juego es lento y empieza aburrido.

    6 for kids, but 2 for adults. I got it for my kids but decided to play it to get the 1000 gamescore (yeah I know, cheap gamescore). The driving was easy (as you would expect from a kids game) but a little boring. Finding postcards was fun, but without a guide to where they were a kid would never find all of them. Graphics were good and using the original voice actors was a nice touch. My main criticism was that you were not always sure where you were meant to go to get your next mission even with the map turned on. By the time I got my 1000 gamescore I was well and truly over it, but for kids the appeal might be more lasting. Expand
