Many aspects about this game are great - but for getting it without an instruction manual, it was a lot of driving in circles not having any direction to go with the story. Had to look for references in the objective of each story. Graphics are great, characters are true to the movie, but it takes forever to load each mini-game and asks to save often. I recommend you review how to play the game and each mini-game before playing. My son did have tons of fun driving all over Radiator Springs picking up bonuses and hitting things, but other than that, direction was hard to find.
