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.

  1. Racing game of the year? Definitely not. A decent effort that will entertain kids and tide fans of the movie and original game over until Cars 2? Definitely.
  2. Cars Race-o-Rama isn't the right game for adults. But thanks to the fun mini games you will possibly find yourself fighting with the kids for the gamepad. Who does gain more points drifting around and who is the better stuntman? Find out.

    Cars is back and this new game is specifically for the youngest gamers. You can drive to Radiator Springs and do a lot of different racing challenges. The gameplay and audio are fine, but graphically it could have been better. This game is perfect for the little gamers.
  4. 50
    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.
  5. Cars Race-O-Rama takes a good concept and fails to implement it properly. The idea comes up well short due to erratic and somewhat unreliable physics, an overly bland atmosphere, a sense of definite repetitiveness, and a lack of mechanical upgrades that could’ve made the experience richer.

    This game is pretty mediocre. The racetracks are just like in a normal racing game like Gran Turismo. Uninteresting and boring to look atThis game is pretty mediocre. The racetracks are just like in a normal racing game like Gran Turismo. Uninteresting and boring to look at tracks. I could’nt even tell some of them apart! There was one track that is just literally just an oval. I recommend it to little kids and hardcore cars fans. Expand
