    Start Yer Engines!

    I recognize the clutch and the accelerator, but what's that funny pedal in the middle?

    Play as your favorite characters as you help Lightning McQueen capture the coveted Piston Cup Championship in this game based on the Disney/Pixar movie.

    Features

    • Story-based racing adventure game relives key movie moments
    • More than 10 playable characters from the film
    • Open-world environment with more than 30 races and minigames
    • Cut scenes created expressly for the game feature the voices of the movie's stars, including Owen Wilson, Paul Newman and Bonnie Hunt
    • Unlockables include additional cars, concept art and movie stills

    Want to get behind the wheel of some cars with some real character? Disney/Pixar Cars definitely has lots of character, and you'll be able to race as all of them. Whether you play as Lightning, Tow Mater, Sally, Darrell Cartrip or any of the other playable characters in Cars, get ready to step on the accelerator for fun.

    You won't long for anything to do in Radiator Springs. In Story Mode, you start as Lightning, a young hot-rod who wants to make the Piston Cup circuit. As you take on various challenges around Radiator Springs, you open up new races and minigames in which you'll play as other characters in Cars. You'll go Tractor Tipping with Mater, learn powersliding from Doc and help Lizzie get her postcards back.

    The game features plenty of bonus content, including concept art from the movie. As you earn points in the game, you'll also get a chance to unlock different characters and paint jobs for those characters. As you unlock minigames and races in Story Mode, those events become playable outside the main game in the Arcade menu. Additionally, two players can race or compete in minigames.

    Cars does a nice job of introducing young gamers to the racing genre and the upgrades fans of the genre like to make to their rides. The gameplay is simple enough for young children to play, and the Arcade mode allows you to bump up the difficulty if you're making quick work of the other rigs.

    Bottom Line

    Disney/Pixar Cars makes a solid transition from the screen to Nintendo GameCube. The voices from the movie add a nice touch.
