The Cars franchise is a lovable one and has surely won the little one’s hearts along with every adult’s too.

The game is based around the movie Cars 2 the sequel to Cars and was released in 2011. It places the player into the Cars universe with a completely new international spy theme. It features an array of Cars characters who indulge in action-packed spy adventures and world-class racing.

Environments are well crafted giving them a great overall appeal. Lighting effects are well placed throughout the game giving it an artistic look.
Great audio appeal, impressive voice acting, good audio effects, voice samples get jarring:
The sound factor is great within the game with completely lovely audio effects. Most of the voice actors from the movie come back to reprise their roles within the game. Since the voice acting is so great, it gives the characters certain likeable and lovable personality that will stay with the player even after he has finished playing. Some of the voice samples become grating after a while but nonetheless the audio effects are placed perfectly throughout most of the game.
Slick gameplay, tons of stuff to unlock, detailed tracks, lots of characters, no online gameplay:
The gameplay is fun to playthrough giving the players so much to do out in the Cars universe. The career mode is pretty huge and possesses a lot of variety which gives the player so many options. The tracks are also well detailed with lots of shortcuts to access in order for better enjoyment. There is a four player split screen that is supported in all the modes offered by the game. There is a vast variety of 30 distinct playable characters which are fun to control. Single player is exciting but multiplayer just takes the cake here. The only missing feature is that belonging to online gameplay which is a shame since the game has so much potential. There are loads of modes to unlock and several tracks to race on which will keep the player hook onto the game.
Cars 2 captures the beauty and fun that the series is known for and will surely provide the player with a fulfilling and rewarding experience albeit the missing online option might put a damper on some players.
