Review: Cars 2 for the wii... sucks.
My son got this game for his birthday and I feel like he got ripped off.
First off why are all the game modes locked? Second why can't you race other people right out of the box?
Mario Kart doesn't make it a pain in the ass just to play multiplayer. With Cars 2 it seemed to me that the design of this game was overly complicated considering it's a kids game. When a seven year old can't get through the start screen and start a race on his own you know there's a problem. Once we messed with it for a while he was able to get to a type of multiplayer but it wasn't fun and it wasn't racing. It was training. They force you to do training courses to learn how to jump turn and do just about everything that should be natural to anyone that's ever played a game like this before. I was at target the other day and saw Mario kart for the wii and just picked it up and started playing,. The controls are way different than on the Game Cube but they are intuitive and natural and I was able to just play and have fun. Not so with Cars 2 which makes everything a chore and doesn't even have the play machanics to rival low end kart racers. At least the graphics were nice and crisp.
Definitely Flush this pile.
Graphics get a 4 out of 5
I looks like the cars movie which is all I can say is good about this game.
Audio gets a 4 out of 5
Sure the sound works nice and the voices are cool and I think may even be done by the real actors but they get repeatitive.
Controls get a 2 out of 5
Super sluggish and overly complexe for a kids game.
Story gets a 3 out of 5
It's just the Cars 2 story line from what I saw and that movie kind of sucked anyway.
My opinion-- This game was a waste of time and effort. Go get Mario Kart instead.
