    It’s a fun loving game that is colourful and a great way to get the kiddies involved with racing their favourite characters.

    If you're looking for a new kart racer to add to your collection, you can't go wrong with Cars 3: Driven to Win. Its cute and colourful style is charming and it has a great selection of content to keep you busy for hours.

    This is a surprisingly solid racing game, with a lot of content and very enjoyable, although the lack of online modes and the not very original weapons are obvious shortcomings.

    Cars 3: Road to Win is a fun game to play with our children, using a Mario Kart style control, but simplifying it rightly. A good amount of hours of play to unlock all its contents make the purchase worthwhile if you have children fans of the Pixar film.

    Cars 3 Driven to Win is a good arcade racer which ties in with the movie. There is more than enough to do, but you'll miss just as much. The Battle Arena is gone and there is a lot of distraction on the tracks. It's a fun game, but no more than that.

    Cars 3 is - like the movie it's based on - a lot of fun. Unfortunately, the game isn't exactly impressive in the technical department. Weak graphics and a lack of online features keep Cars 3 from reaching the lofty heights it should have aimed for.

    When all is said and done, Cars 3: Driven to Win is a decent arcade racer that fans will enjoy. The racing is good fun once you get a handle on it, and we can see kids having a great time with the family in its four-player split screen. It’s difficult to recommend it to anyone else, however. While there are plenty of ways to play, there lacks a certain depth that will keep you entertained for more than a few hours. Having said that, the PS4 is sorely lacking in arcade racing titles, so this may be worth a look if you're in the market for some bright and breezy driving – and can stand the repetitive voice lines.

    This review is from the point of view of a father of 2 boys who are 4-6 years old.

    I was very skeptical about buying this game at first, because we had the old Cars game for PS3 and neither of my sons enjoyed it. Me even less. But my youngest son kept asking me to buy this game, despite me trying to tell him (based on the last game and many reviews) that it will most likely be very bad and boring.

    Well then came the sales and I bought the game for a good price just to try it out, and I'm so glad I did.

    The game is not without it's faults, and my first impressions weren't good, but when you play for awhile there's a ton of content opening up. The biggest enjoyment you get from this game is trying to open up more content, and boy did we have fun with my two sons trying to get Mack or Jackson Storm unlocked.

    Most games that include couch multiplayer let you unlock stuff only in single-player modes, but what makes Cars 3: Driven to Win great, is that you can try to unlock the next track or car together with your friends or family.

    Now that we've unlocked all the tracks and cars, we still play this game, because it has so many different game modes that are so much fun to play together. If you have kids who love Lightning McQueen, you should ignore the rest of the reviews and just go ahead and buy this game! My kids love this game, and let me tell you, I have plenty of games they could be playing, but they still always choose to play this game.

The game has been fully translated to Dutch (including voices), which is rare for games (and I usually don't like it) but for my 4 year old this really works well. The voices are pretty decent, and my son finds it funny and there's a lot of recognition of scenes and events from the Cars movies. The only downside is that even easy is a bit on the hard side for him.

    The content is pretty big (many tracks), and quite a few cars although the difference between them is minimal. As a single player game, it's not the greatest to be honest, unless you really buy it for the theme.

    Cars 3: Driven to Win
    There’s a lot here, but none of its fun
    Driven to Win is a racing game inspired around the story of the Cars 3 movie
    Cars 3: Driven to Win
    There’s a lot here, but none of its fun
    Driven to Win is a racing game inspired around the story of the Cars 3 movie where lightning McQueen is start to feel a bit old…
    Other than the opening scene, there is no actual story here, so if you’re looking to get the movie story here, you’re not going to get it…
    There surprisingly a lot here in Cars 3: Dirven to win
    There’s 22 characters to unlock, these local split screen multiplayer, 6 different event types, a cup series, customizations, and 21 tracks to unlock…
    The problem is this game is just not fun to play….
    Front and center is the straight up racing events... you choose the difficulty of the race and get to work…
    you can bump into other cars, drift, jump, and do tricks to fill up your speed boost and try to come out on top after 3 laps…
    then theres battle race which I feel should’ve really been front and center where its more smash bros style of racing but with pick ups to take out opponents at range. Stunt showcase where it’s all about getting the most air and doing the most tricks before time runs out, takedown which is sort of burnout inspired where you try to destroy as many cars as possible, best lap challenge which is a time challenge, and finally master level events.. these are essentially the games boss battles where you take on a cars character and try to best them at their own game
    All of these battles, cars, customizable, and tracks are unlocked by completing challenges..
    there are 136 challenges in total in this game for you to try and tackle during races and events such as stay on 2 wheels for 10 seconds or earn 3 stars on a certain track…
    These hall of fame challenges gives player incentive to try every mode and grind in them even if those modes aren’t really what’s fun to them… especially since they are tied to unlockable…
    I really do appreciate all this game has going for it and the amount of content here…
    The issue though isn’t in the racing itself.. It obviously isn’t in a lack of content...
    The issue is in the track design...
    These tracks are all insanely boring... and theyre long... some taking over 6 minutes to complete…
    They are varied though…
    There are shortcuts…
    But they all for the most part feel so uninspired and generic…
    None stuck with me...
    I’ll remember none of them in the future…
    They aren’t dynamic…
    There’s no great soundtrack to keep your heart pumping...
    It’s a dull experience throughout
    It just doesn’t feel like you’re racing...
    it feels like youre just driving around some boring tracks as fast as you can..
    It’s a very numbing experience…
    Don’t get me wrong... the content is here…
    You’ll easily putting in more than 10 hours trying to unlock everything and complete every challenge…
    But the driving and tracks aren’t interesting enough to make those 10 hours feel enjoyable…
    This racing game feels like busy work…
    And after 1 run through each track, you’ll never feel the urge to race them again
    I Give Cars 3: Driven to Win
    a 5.5/10

    Reasonable for a racing game. Has a decent amount of characters, tracks and challenges but the tracks are still pretty repetitive andReasonable for a racing game. Has a decent amount of characters, tracks and challenges but the tracks are still pretty repetitive and uninteresting to look at/drive on. the challenges themselves will keep you busy for a day at most and it can be fun to play against other people in the versus modes. However, the A.I for the opponent cars is either really stupid or really hard and no real medium. The controls are a little unresponsive and clunky but still work okay and there is very little story or humour here at all. The only reason I have this game is because i was given it and only play so I can beat Storm and cruz as Lightning nonstop. That is it. I would much rather go back and play the other cars games instead of this. Expand
