Cars: Radiator Springs Adventures Reviewed

Macworld's Game Room recently took a spin in the world of Cars: Radiator Springs Adventures. Radiator Springs Adventures targets young gamers with a series of mini games drawn from scenes in the movie. Several actors from the movie also lend their voice talents to the game. The Game Room gave Cars: Radiator Springs Adventures a score of 4 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

Disney games for younger kids have, in the past, carried the stigma of execrable “Activity Centers” from Disney Interactive. Typically, they were forgettable point-and-click activities with production quality that rarely exceeded shareware level. THQ’s gone in a very different direction with Radiator Springs Adventures—these are a bunch of varied and fun games, though older gamers may want to opt for the more arcade-like Cars game you can buy in Target department stores.

There are a total of ten different activities kids can play. Each one revolves around Lightning McQueen helping or interacting with a different resident of Radiator Springs. For example, Ramone, the low rider, leads Lightning in a dance activity that’s part Simon, part Dance Dance Revolution—you have to repeat a sequence of dance moves by pressing arrows at the top of the screen, not only matching the sequence but also the beat.

The full review can be found at the Game Room site listed below.
