IMG Reviews Cars: The Video Game
12:45 PM | Tuncer Deniz | 9 comments

IMG has posted a review of THQ's Cars: The Video Game. Here's a clip from the review:

Borrowing ideas from popular racing titles like Crazy Taxi and Need For Speed, Cars is a cartoonish-looking, sandbox-style racing game targeted to the six-and-up crowd who can’t get enough of the movie by the same name. This objective is not easy to achieve, judging by the dubious titles of yesteryear. Something about the idea of making a fun game, without patronizing or frustrating the younger generation is a surprisingly difficult task, but interestingly, Cars avoids both pitfalls—not only does Cars feature a boatload of fun racing action, but it does so in the context of a fun and captivating storyline that may even appeal to older teenagers and parents.
To check out the entire review, please follow the link below.
