From the Manufacturer
| Inspired by the upcoming Disney·Pixar animated film, Cars 2: The Video Game lets players jump into the Cars 2 universe with some of their favorite Cars personalities in exotic locations around the globe. Play as Mater, Lightning McQueen, and other brand new characters as players train to become world-class spies in the international training center - C.H.R.O.M.E. (Command Headquarters for Recon Operations and Motorized Espionage). Take on dangerous missions, compete to become the fastest racecar in the world, or use spy skills in exciting, action-packed combat racing and battle arenas. Players can race against friends and family in either single or multiplayer modes with up to four players to unlock challenging new tracks, characters, events and thrilling spy missions. |
|Lightning McQueen sets off to Japan, Italy and England with Mater in tow for the World Grand Prix. But competing against the fastest cars in the world tests more than his racing skills when Lightning realizes his wide-eyed best friend may not be the pit chief nor ambassador he needs to navigate the unfamiliar international terrain.||Mater, the rusty old tow truck, leaves Carburetor County for the first time ever and falls into an intriguing adventure when he gets mistaken for an American secret agent. Caught between supporting his best friend Lightning McQueen in the World Grand Prix and his new role in international espionage, Mater ends up in an explosive chase through the streets of Tokyo and Europe.||Finn McMissile is a master British spy. Though charming and eloquent, it's his stealth maneuvering, intelligence and years in the field that enable him to thwart unexpected attacks from bad guys. Finn's design is sleek and timeless, but he's also prepared for any tricky situation with an arsenal of ultra-cool gadgets and weaponry.|
Top Customer Reviews
When I first got this game as a surprise for my 4.5 yr old son (he loves Mario Kart and is pretty good at it), I gave Cars 2 a try myself beforehand to figure out the basics. The IGN review is accurate and I agree with their findings.
a few key items not in the IGN review (or bears repeating):
PLEASE use the Wii wheel or wiimote (no nunchuck)!! When I first played this game (and with my son) we used the wiimote+nunchuck. I did not do very well and my son kept on flipping the car on 2 wheels or flipping in reverse when he was trying to steer. Once we switched to the wii wheel, which is what we normally use w/ Mario Kart, everything was golden and both of us were having a blast.
This game is actually challenging! I'm only on Clearance level 2 and it was not a walk in the park. Still got 1st place though :). It is more challenging than Mario Kart IMO since there's different game modes and the weapons require more skill to use.
This game is suitable for kids if you're ok with cartoon cars shooting other cars with guns and missiles (I'm fine with it). If your kid can play Mario Kart then he/she can play Cars 2. Key word is "play", not necessarily "play well". The Battle Race and Attack game modes might be tricky for the younger kids (<6 yrs old). The guns and missiles require more precise aim than Mario Kart.Read more ›
They both gave it a 5 star rating. Actually, my youngest said he gave it 100 stars! They've spent hours playing this game, and they love earning new cars. (Tomber is a particular favorite and they were both so excited when they earned that car. My 6 year old insisted I put that in the review. :)
It's a good game for either one or two players, and it's been just challenging enough to be enjoyable without being too difficult for them. Of all the Wii games we've purchased, this one if the only one both my kids have liked equally. The youngest loves it and the oldest doesn't think it's too young for him. We've had it for several weeks and they aren't tired of it yet. It was a great purchase.
