    Jimmie Johnson's game isn't the championship win that the man himself is probably accustomed to, but it's a fun title that will have no problem fulfilling anyone looking to have a good time with a kart racer.

    An acceptable entry in the kart-racing genre. While there aren't many folks online, the local multiplayer makes up for it, and the modes included here will keep you busy if you're all about power sliding and bombing someone's car with a sack of yard scraps.

    If it weren't for the steep difficulty level, Jimmie Johnson's Anything with an Engine would have been a very competent kart racing title.

    Not a good game, as I have attempted to stress. It is, however, perversely amusing and would actually make for a fun party distraction. It's one of those rare games that, no matter how poorly I may score it, still comes as a recommended purchase. It's a cheap little kart racer that will, at the very least, entertain via irony and still manages to be a competent -- if broken in several ways -- racer.

    The game's impressively creative in parts, but regrettably, the blend of combat and driving never feels very fluid or cohesive.

    I just got the game - and have been playing it non-stop since my son got home from school. It's actually really fun. We've had a blast playing the duel mode especially - eventually we played almost 50 matches before we had to break for dinner. My wife got involved as well - she liked the shopping cart character (go figure). Anyway, our family hasn't had this much fun together on a racing game since Mario Kart on Wii. I can see our family putting in a lot of hours on this game, and my son can't wait to play his cousin online - when he finally gets the game that is. if you're looking for a fun family game at a great price, you won't be disappointed here.

    Good game. Better than I expected. I bought it because I luv Jimmie Johnson but now I can't stop playing it. My kids had fun playing it too. Haha! They are the real critics and play video games more than I do. Expand

    Soo much cooler than I originally had expected.. this game is quirky and loveable in ways that you can't quite put your finger on. difficulty is right in the ballpark for players accustomed to kart racers, and there are many types of events where you can flex a diverse skill set in either racing or combat. I love this game. Expand

    Got the game in the mail this morning. Wasn't sure if I'd like it when I ordered it, but for $30, this is a bargain. I played the single player career a bit, but what's most fun is sitting and playing split screen multiplayer with my brothers. It brings us back to the days (and long nights) of Mario Kart - it's really fun! The gameplay is intensely fast and furious. The characters are hilarious! I love playing as the ex-sumo wrestler who drives a toilet! lol

    I look forward to downloading the Jimmy Fallon character when they eventually release it! Good job with a great game Jimmie Johnson!
