I have just bought this for my son's 5 year birthday. It is a stand alone video game that connects to a TV set (through standard video-in/audio-in RCA plugs) and plays a racing game based on the Cars 2 universe.

While the box claims to include 18 games, in reality, I would consider that there is only a single game split into a tutorial plus 14 "missions", 9 of which are races on different tracks and 5 of them are somewhat dumb variations of shooting games, where you have to drop "traps" like oil or bombs to hurt chasing cars. The remaining games are just "mini games" used to fix your car in pits.

These 14 missions need to be unlocked in order, usually by arriving up to 5th place in the race. Unfortunately, missions don't seem to get harder as the game progresses.

The game controller (which is the game itself) is a steering wheel and seems quite fragile with its low quality plastic and stickers. I wonder how long it will last. It runs on 4 AA batteries.

Game control is pretty simple. Turning the key turns on the console. The wheel drives your car, gear shift is used to accelerate and break, horn is used for releasing the booster (and also as the action button on chase games) and the F1 butterfly style gear commands are actually used to put the car in a skid right or skid left mode, allowing it to turn on tighter turns.

Running close behind another car fills in your booster power which can then be released by pressing the horn, and this makes your car go faster.

Touching other cars or the limit of the track causes your car to gain damage, and if it becomes too damaged, you will be taken to the pit for fixing. Fixing the car is just a matter of following instructions and issueing commands (turn the wheel, push the gear, etc).

Easy to set up, easy to use. Good variety of race tracks and alternate games. Grandson, age 5, will play it until we make him stop

I got this for my Cars obsessed three year old. The graphics of the game are pretty basic and low quality compared to the graphics of the menus and other parts. Game play is kind of weird too. There is a learn to drive feature that keeps stopping to ask you to hit the horn. Unfortunately the 3 year old thinks you have to hit the horn all the time which makes him select options that he doesn't need. Would be nice if there was just an option to drive around so the younger kids could just sit and steer and watch their favorite character drive around.

Oh my. I purchased this for my son's birthday back in August, and it lasted all of 3 days. It was great fun while it lasted, then it just stopped working. Changed batteries, didn't help at all. It doesn't even turn on. What a waste of money.

I'm on my second unit of this product - one from Target and one from Toys R Us. Both of these were crap in a different way. One got through the tutorial and then re-booted. The other one never got passed the credits. Don't buy this thing via mail for any reason. If you are willing to go back to the store several times, go for it. It looks like it SHOULD be fun. I got my money back on both of them, but returned them right away.

I thought this would be a great "beginner" video game for my 4 year. Since his brothers' Cars 2 Wii game is too advanced, I thought he could have "his very own" video game to play. I walked him through the tutorial which was very easy to understand and he really got the hang of it. The game did allow winning most of the time, which I thought was GREAT for smaller kids. Who wants to lose if you are learning how to play video games?

If you are looking for advanced or complex gaming options, consider investing in a "REAL" video system. Even though the product indicates 18 games, it just varies the racing tracks and does offer a detailed tutorial. For $40 what can one expect? In my opinion, I suggest this game for kids 4 to 7 yrs. old to only give them a feel for real video games w/o breaking the bank. It should be for occasional use (no longer than 30 mins. to 1 hour), not to leave the kids playing for HOURS on end.

After toying with it for one day my 4-year old, who normally fights his 7 year old brother for everything, did not seem interested. He did want his very own video game to play in his room, but after playing it he decided he would rather play with his 'Ka-chow' toy cars. Whew, that saved us a bundle!! Even though he felt 'like a big boy', he would rather watch his brother play Cars 2 on the Wii so we purchased his own colorful mini Wii remote. With all of the action on the screen he didn't even mind just playing with "his" remote (which we did not even engage for play).

Overall I rate this product a 1-Star.

Pros: The appearance of the game is attractive and the graphics were considerably smooth and appealing; very similar to the "Cars 2 Universe" movie.

Santa Claus brought this present Christmas eve to my very nearly four year old son, who is a car fanatic. He asked for a steering wheel and was delighted when he got an interactive one. He loves the game and plays with it regularly. Of all the presents Santa brought this is his favorite. The quality of the graphics is low resolution akin to amusement arcade level. The difficulty level of the game 'easy' which is perfect for this age group considering all they really want to do is drive a car and are not so caught up with the competitive aspects of the game.

PS good fun for the parents if played after a few glasses of wine
