I have a 3 year old who loves the Cars franchise. I was afraid I was going to get stuck playing a overly easy, boring game for his enjoyment. To my surprise, this game was actually a lot of fun. It took me back to my Mario Kart days in a way. Not as good obviously, but almost as fun.
My son loved watching me play it too, just make sure you watch your mouth when you get hit with a missile right before you cross the finish line making you lose 1st place!
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.
