Cars 2 The Video Game for Wii Review

     Jayden received a Wii game system for Christmas.  So we are all pretty new to video games.  Of course John and I have played a few as kids, but not much on the Wii. So we have been on the look out for some fun and easy games to play as a family.  I was recently set the Cars 2 Wii game from Disney to review. 

      Inspired by the upcoming Disney·Pixar animated film, Cars 2: The Video Game lets players jump into the Cars 2 universe with some of their favorite Cars personalities in exotic locations around the globe. Play as Mater, Lightning McQueen, and other brand new characters as players train to become world-class spies in the international training center - C.H.R.O.M.E. (Command Headquarters for Recon Operations and Motorized Espionage). Take on dangerous missions, compete to become the fastest racecar in the world, or use spy skills in exciting, action-packed combat racing and battle arenas. Players can race against friends and family in either single or multiplayer modes with up to four players to unlock challenging new tracks, characters, events and thrilling spy missions.

Game Features
  • Choose from more than 20 different characters, such as Mater, Lightning McQueen and the newly introduced Finn McMissile and Holley Shiftwell, and train to become world class spies
  • Participate in simulated hazardous missions using high-tech gadgets
  • Perform maneuvers only Cars characters can do, such as backwards driving, air tricks, sidestepping to avoid obstacles, two-wheel driving and more
     This game is rated 10+ Everyone so a little over Jayden's age, but we thought we'd try it anyway.  It was a fun game.  Jayden does pretty good considering it is a new system for him and the age range is higher.  Jayden and I raced each other and it was fun.  It only took a few minutes to figure out how use the controller and move the car around.  Now we are in no way experts on this game, but it is definitely a game that we will continue to play and have fun as a family.  I really like that we can all play together.  And I like that you don't have to purchase a different item to go along with the game such as a different controller.  You can use any of 4 identified controller's, but the regular Wii wand works great.  If you are looking for a fun adventure game that your whole family can play then this is a perfect game. 

Buy it:  Cars 2: The Video Game on Amazon for $39.99
