This was good.,
This review is from: Cars Radiator Springs Adventures (Win/Mac) (CD-ROM)I have played both of the 'cars' games based on the movie.
This one is more like an activity center. Quick and easy-to-master mini games are available to play. These mini-games open up quick 'races' where you simply click your mouse at the proper time to change gears and keep picking up speed. You have no other control over any other aspect of the race. There are a few other things to see and do, but the 20$ price tag is really what this is worth. My 7 year old worked through this in just a little over 4 hours. He's played it twice more, so the game does keep him interested. It IS very colorful and has the actual voices from the movie as well. This is about 500 Meg in size. It is good. But, the other 'Cars' game that is actually a game with races and total control of your car is much better. I rated that one a 5 star. It is more like a family-friendly Grand-theft Auto 3. Also similar to Simpsons hit and run.
The kids will love this one, but they didn't really offer enough... Read more

This review is from: Cars Radiator Springs Adventures (Win/Mac) (CD-ROM)On the box this games states that it is for ages 4+. Unless you have a child that plays video or computer games constantly, ages 6 and up would be more appropriate.
This game consists of 10 activities, each associated with a different car. Completing the activity unlocks the race secret for that partiuclar car. This allows McQueen to beat that car in the race.
The activites are cute, but require less problem solving and more hand-eye coordination. None of the activites are particularly educational, but it is still fun. Unfortunately, the way the game is set up requires the player to complete all 5 levels for each activity in order to get the secret. Many of the level 4's and 5's are too hard for kids this age (unless they play nintendo or xbox all the time) and so you have to help your kids through them. My son, who just turned 6, loves the game, but he needs help with the higher levels on some of the activites as they require quick memorization... Read more

Not the "Real" Game,
This review is from: Cars Radiator Springs Adventures (Win/Mac) (CD-ROM)Beware! As someone else mentioned, this is not the Cars game that is available for game consoles. HOWEVER, he/she was incorrect about it not being available for the PC. For some reason, that game (which is previewed on the Cars DVD) which is more of a racing game with additional mini-games, most of which are fun, is ONLY available from Target. I like the movie Cars, and as an adult, have really enjoyed playing the OTHER Cars video game, exclusively available through Target.
But, if what you are looking for is an activity center for kids who like the movie Cars, this is decent.
