Ce jeu est vraiment une surprise, sa prise en main, ses graphismes, sont vraiment adaptés à un public jeune tout en gardant un intérêt poussé qui ferait baver les gamers plus adultes. Voilà un jeu pour "enfants" qui a le mérite de laisser un peu de liberté à ceux-ci, sans jamais les perdre. Le maître-mot est la simplicité, pour s'adapter aux plus jeunes. Rarement, voire jamais, un jeu n'avait été aussi abouti pour les petits qui ne sont jamais la cible principale des éditeurs de jeux vidéos. On peut donc saluer l'initiative de THQ et le talent de Rainbow Studios pour avoir rendu une licence Disney/Pixar aussi attractive.
Wer ein lustiges Spiel zum Kinofilm erwartet, wird sicherlich nicht enttäuscht, sofern man keine all zu hohen Erwartungen in das Spiel steckt. Einen Autorennspiel-Fan wird Cars hingegen nicht überzeugen, was sicherlich aber auch nicht das Ziel von Cars ist mit korrekten physikalischen Fahreigenschaften aufzutrumpfen. Cars, ein Spiel für Fans des Films – mehr hingegen nicht.
Inside Mac Games (IMG)
Cars is one of the few licensed games ever to hit the market that can actually compete with mainstream titles based on its quality alone. Even more surprising than the fact that the game made it to the Mac is the fact that it is only available as a Macintosh/Windows hybrid set. Regardless, bolstered by an interesting story, simple (yet pleasurable) racing action, and a variety of mini-games, Cars achieves its goal of furthering the Cars experience that began at the theater. As a bonus, the game manages to broadcast a wide enough appeal that may even engage older siblings and parents, and should be a viable addition to the collection of any budding Mac gamer.
