The game received mixed reviews from critics.




Cars 2 The Video Game



In Cars 2, a third-person racing game, players have a choice of 25 different characters and train to become world-class spies. As part of training, players participate in missions using high-tech gadgets, for example, to avoid enemies or slow them down.


The game has three types of trophies: bronze, silver, and gold. Points are awarded at different values depending on what type of vehicle class players use. The game characters are divided into three weight-classes: heavy, medium, and light. Players can unlock new cars, tracks, and missions by collecting emblems. Drop-in/drop-out multiplayer modes support up to four players simultaneously.


The game was first shown to the public at E3 2011.[3] It was also unveiled at the American International Toy Fair in New York City.[4][5] According to a video interview on Game Line, John Day, the producer of the game, said they wanted to create a good family racing game and add a few things that perhaps no one has seen before.[6] Avalanche Software was working in close collaboration with Pixar artists to bring the humor and personality of the feature film to life.[4]


Cars 2 received mixed reviews from critics, with a score of 72 and 74 on Metacritic for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions respectively. IGN gave the game an 8 out of 10 rating, stating that "Cars 2 is a great multiplayer game that rivals Mario Kart."[18] The Official Xbox Magazine gave it a 7.5 out of 10 rating, praising fun and polished racing but criticizing the fact that online play was missing from the title. Game Informer gave the title a 7.75 out of 10 rating, calling it a satisfying racing experience.[15] GameSpot's Justin Calvert gave it a 7.5 out of 10 rating, praising its career mode and track designs. He was, however, upset that there was no online mode as expected and also no free roam unlike its predecessors.[17]


The Cars 2 video game is a racing game for the Xbox 360, Xbox One (Backwards Compatible), Xbox Series X/S (Backwards Compatible), PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 (With a PS Plus Premium Subscription), PlayStation 5 (With a PS Plus Premium Subscription), Wii, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Portable, PC, iOS, and Arcade. It is the fourth installment in the main Cars series, and the sixth overall. Similar to every other Cars game, includes new features such as tracks and game modes. New items and characters were included, as well as improved multiplayer experience. Returning game modes are also present, such as the primary racing elements.


Up to four players can race in the game, which players can choose from more than 20 different characters and train to become world class spies. As part of their international training, players can participate in simulated hazardous missions using high-tech gadgets to evade and slow down adversaries.


This game is overall very different from previous games in the series, instead of being a free-roaming experience with an open-world Radiator Springs map, this game is more linear, with set missions to complete with no extra mini-games, with the controls feeling more like a kart racer similar to Mario Kart, as opposed to the more realistic and grounded controls of previous games feeling more similar to the Forza games.


On the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, there are several other characters that the player can download and play in the game. However, some of those characters are from the first Cars movie and Cars Toons.


There are several different control schemes that can be used, depending on what iteration of the game the player is playing. Xbox 360, PlayStation and Wii controllers can be used for their respective consoles, while the handheld versions each utilize controls that are built into the system.


Cars 2: The Video Game introduces an item system, something that was not present in any of the previous Cars video games. Most of them are spy-related weapons like machine guns and missile launchers, but there are some additional items like oil and leeches.


There are a total of 35 characters to be unlocked in the game, ten of which are accessible at the beginning of the game. To unlock more characters, the player must earn badges or crests, or advance to the next clearance level.


On the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, there was a total of 23 downloadable characters available for download (2 exclusive for PS3). Most are skins of different characters. With the exception of The Queen, who can be downloaded for free, all characters are $1.00 each and some bundles of 4 characters are sold for $3.00 each.


Despite the film's negative reviews, the game has received positive reviews, with a score of 76 on Metacritic for the Xbox 360 version. IGN gave the title a 8 out of 10 rating. Stating that "Cars 2 is a great multiplayer game that rivals Mario Kart. Playing alone isn't quite as fun, but it's still a solid solo experience. The fact that there's little story doesn't really matter because you won't miss it, and don't let the license scare you off. Under all the Pixar beauty is an extremely fun game." The Official Xbox Magazine gave it a 7.5 out of 10 rating. Praising fun and polished racing but criticizing the fact that online play was missing from the title. Gameinformer gave the title a 7.75 out of 10 rating, Calling it a satisfying racing experience.Christopher Healy on Common Sense Media awarded the game 5 stars, and called it "Great combat racing, but loads of gunfire and explosions.", stating "The mix of spy-gadget combat and fast-paced racing action in the game is a great way to translate the secret agent theme of the Cars 2 film into video game form. While the fighting aspect feels a bit intense for young kids, it's presented in a way that is easy to pick up and incredibly fun and exciting for players who are old enough to handle it."


"The game looks and plays great. There are loads of ways to earn nitro boosts during a race -- jumps, stunts, backward driving, taking out opponents, etc. -- and using those boosts for last-minute surges to the finish line can be wildly suspenseful. There's a nice big selection of cars from the get-go, and by the end, you'll have a staggering amount of characters to choose from. Multiplayer is a blast, too (even if, perhaps, a bit too literally)."


Occasionally during Races, Battle Races, Attacks, or Survivals, the game's soundtrack will begin to stutter and the character's voice clips will be stuck on repeat until the event ends. When the player restarts the event or try to exit it, the game will show a black screen and lock up. The only way to get out of this screen is to reset the console. This glitch only occurs on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC versions.


Sometimes as the character select screen loads up, the game will freeze and make a loud buzzing noise and then the player must unplug their console and then plug it back in. Resetting the console will do nothing. This glitch only occurs on the Wii and PC versions. (If the glitch occurs on the PC version, the player must force shut down their computer.)


Parents need to know that Cars 2: The Video Game is a combination racing/action game, in which the car characters are cast as secret agents battling to save the world during their races. Players use weapons like missiles and machine guns to shoot their opponents and blow them off course. They are also encouraged to side-bash opponents to knock them off course. There are several deathmatch-style "Hunt" levels that don't even involve racing. The characters are all cartoony automobiles, of course, but the sounds of gunfire and the explosions are more realistic.


This game takes place after the movie on which it is based; and the cheeky autos of CARS 2: THE VIDEO GAME are still working as undercover spies. Through a series of races, set in a variety of global destinations, they battle the forces of the evil Dr. Z, who is plotting to take over the world. The game features a number of traditional races that are all about getting to the finish line, as well as weapon-filled \"battle races.\"


The mix of spy-gadget combat and fast-paced racing action in Cars 2: The Video Game is a really cool way to translate the secret agent them of the Cars 2 film into video game form. While the fighting aspect feels a bit intense for young kids, it's presented in a way that is easy to pick up and incredibly fun and exciting for players who are old enough to handle it.


Families can talk about the violence in the game. Do all the guns and explosives seem appropriate in a game based on an animated family film? Does the fact that the characters are cars lessen the impact of the violence?


Unlike the previous Cars videogames which atempted a more realistic racing style of gameplay, Cars 2 instead goes for more of a kart racing style of gameplay with a heavier foucus on multiplayer and item usage, similar to games such as the Mario Kart series, Crash Team Racing and Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing.


On the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, there are several other characters that you can download and play in the game. Some of those characters, however, are from the first Cars movie and Cars Toons.


On the Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS versions, the game is rather a direct adaptation of the storyline seen in the movie, and plays out more similarly to the previous Cars games as it has a more realistic style of driving. 041b061a72
