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.|

I'm very happy to say, Cars 2 isn't one of those games.
The game begins with something of a "mini short"...if you haven't seen the movie, obviously you should before playing the game or it won't make any sense! Anyway, it's really cool. Then you go into your "Chrome" training, and advance through several levels of being a secret agent. Some of the modes...
- Attack: If you've played Blur, you're familiar with the "Demolition" events, where the goal was to earn as many points until time ran out. Same thing here: You get time for the cars that you blow up, and there are bronze/silver/gold trophies (not PSN ones, just the event) that give you points accordingly.
- Race: Just like it sounds...most are 3 laps, some you use powerups on, some you don't. Safe to say there's a fair amount of rubber banding going on...in only 1 race did I win by more than a few seconds, and I'm a fairly seasoned racer (198th in the world out of 35,000 in Blur)
- Hunter: You're battling drones in an arena like setting
- Survival: How's this for fun: You have to continuously gather batteries to keep your shield up, if it drops, BOOM!
All in all, it's a surprising amount of variety for a kids themed game that will give adults a run for their money.
While Cars 2 has many of the "normal" driving options (i.e., drifting, boosts, etc.) it also adds in a layer of strategy with the Energy meter on your car. When it's full, you basically turn into a nitroing/shielding messenger of doom. But while you're trying to fill it all the way, you're likely going to get passed.Read more ›
I was a little bit concerned that they were too young for the game, but they took to it with a fevered intensity and unalloyed joy. I had also purchased an inexpensive steering wheel (PS3 Racing Wheel Controller), and the two of them would swap between the joystick and the steering wheel, trading turns with remarkable grace even though both of them preferred the steering wheel.
The four-year old had greater difficulty controlling the play of the game, but he knew the characters from the film, and the mere prospect of playing the game gave him so much excitement that he didn't seem to care about a crash here and there. The younger one found it far easier to play with the steering wheel.
For the six-year old, the game was the perfect match. I know it's rated for ages 10+, but I don't think parents and Christmas shoppers should be concerned about the appropriateness or playability for ages six to ten. My older nephew could also control the cars cleanly with the joystick, but he, as well, was sharper and more accurate with the steering wheel.
In two-player mode, the screen splits, and both kids, despite their very different level of skill, were able to play together and at the same time without difficulty.
The game offers lots of different driving modes, including head-to-head competition and free-drive, which is better for younger children, as they don't have to worry about crashes prematurely ending their gameplay.
My six-year old nephew was better than any of the adults, so it really gave him a kick.
