It has appeared on just about every other platform known to man, so it only makes sense that Cars, the video game based on the world of talking vehicles depicted in Pixar's animated film of the same name, would find its way to the Wii eventually. This...

Arcade racers weren't as fun as you remember.

Lots of solo and multiplayer options ; Plenty of control scheme options

Very basic controls hurt the gameplay ; Vanilla presentation ; Inconsistent sense of speed

I'm surprised you rated it this high. NintendoLife raped this game to the point where I got a free copy of it!

In case you're not aware, Cars for the Wii is based on a movie of the same name by Pixar, in which Lightning McQueen gets lost on his way to the big race and learns a lot about himself etc etc. We're assuming you've seen the movie and therefore have...

Motion steering is actually pretty decent ; Great visuals and audio

Motion in other places isn't so great ; Some greater difficulty would be nice ; More expensive than other versions

If you're a fan of the movie, it's worth at least a rental, and possibly a purchase. However, you might already own it on another system -- if so, you can ignore this version. Small kids might also enjoy it. Otherwise, it's probably not worth your time.

Burn rubber through Radiator Springs in this passable follow-up to the movie

Landscape is fun to explore ; Top-notch presentation ; Surprisingly good minigames

Crummy multiplayer ; Soundtrack gets repetitive ; Mater races even worse than he looks

One last version of Cars has arrived in the console realm, as the series arrives in the form of a launch title for the Nintendo Wii. Unlike the Xbox 360 version and its exclusive content however, this higher-priced version relies on its support of the...

A sandbox game of sorts for children ; One of the best soundtracks and collection of voice talent you'll find in any video game due to its connection with the movie ; Vibrant and appealing graphics on the surface ; Features an ultra-easy mode for young...

Graphic glitches including tearing and even more pop-up than found in the Xbox 360 version, despite lower-res graphics ; Not optimized for the Wii Remote, with both control setups being usable but not ideal ; Simplistic racing and extreme rubber band...

If you have a young one that’s still a Cars fan, and you haven't picked up another version of the game for him or her yet (with the possible exception of the ultra-simple PC version), then this makes a decent purchase when looked at on its own....

Gary Numan's favorite game finally hits the Wii. How driven is this port?

Better than average steering with the Wii Remote; good production values including nice graphics and lots of VO; well-written story

Not much sense of speed; not enough motivation to explore environments; tractor-tipping is horrid

Race to the finish line as you live all the fun and excitement of the Walt Disney Pictures & Pixar Animation Studios film, "Cars." Play as all your favorite characters as you help Lightning McQueen capture the coveted Piston Cup Championship. Fans will...

Can this THQ Wii-make turn heads with tilt control?

Cars review

 

Disney Pixar's Cars was a bit of a surprise summer hit. The movie was about....cars. Cars with faces, personalities and interaction with one another. There are no humans. Leave it to THQ to pick up a licensed property and bring it to every platform...

Overall, Cars is an honorable attempt at converting a children's movie property into a working racing game. The developers had the right ideas in place, they just weren't executed as well as they could have been. The open environment serves little...

Let's play charades. It's a movie, it's a game, one word…

A few hours' entertainment, but why not get Excite Truck instead?
