    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
    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

    Awfully designed and poorly executed game that could and should have been much better. [09/2017, p.71]

    Cars 3: Driven to Win is a competent kart racer that is accessible to players of all skill levels. There’s plenty of content on offer and the pleasant art style, cast of characters and location will keep fans of the films entertained for quite a few hours. It doesn’t do anything new to reinvent the genre and is lacking in a number of areas, but what is there is decent and that’s more than can be said for a lot of movie tie-ins. As a full priced title Cars 3: Driven to Win is hard to recommend to anyone except the biggest fans of the franchise, but for anyone else looking for a new kart racer to sink their teeth into, it might be worthy of your time once it hits a more realistic price point.

    Cars 3: Driven to Win offers us six game modes with 21 vehicles to choose from. Fails technically but excels in fun.
