This game is for kids, but thanks to the ability to play 4 players, anyone young or old can join in to play Cars 2.
Just to warn you, the MISSION mode as it is called, starts off easy, then becomes hard, but then goes right to downright insane. The game on the harder levels cheats so badly you may not want your kid around while you are cursing at the game as to why you just finished 5th after being bombarded by power-ups in the last couple minutes of the race after being in 1st.
I got this thinking it would be like cars 1 but was disappointed with all of the "comic" violence. The cars have machine guns and rockets on them and the goal is to shoot at other cars to knock them off the road. No blood and gore...I just don't want my kids thinking guns are a toy.
