Game Vortex
I had a Christmas party this year with 2 kids here, a 5 year old and an 8 year old. They spent at least 2 hours (the majority of the time they were here) racing and playing Cars: Mater-National Championship. They highly recommended it and so do I. It's a fun game to play alone, and also great to play with a friend. The only way I would have liked it better is if you could play with four players.
I also don't like the way the music halts when you go into a menu. You're driving into the finish line singing "Life is a Highway" and then when you get the awards menu, everything halts. That great tune is stopped abruptly and you're told via a line of text that you won. What kind of victory celebration is that? No replays, no confetti - just text and an exclamation mark. Like this! After that, you're teleported back to your starting point in the town, ready for a new challenge.
Worth Playing
Cars: Mater-National isn't a bad attempt at crafting a sequel to the popular film, but unlike Pixar's storytelling abilities, this doesn't walk a fine enough line to satisfy both adults and children. From the visuals to the gameplay, this is purely kid's stuff, and it's obviously not built with adults in mind. The challenges are far too easy, and the core gameplay doesn't offer up enough variations to keep you involved for long. I'm sure the younger crowd will eat it up, but adult fans of the movie need to keep in mind that this title wasn't intended for them.
Accueillir des challengers internationaux à Radiator Springs est une idée sympathique. Mais n'aurait-il pas été plus intéressant, en termes de variété, d'envoyer Flash McQueen et ses amis à travers le monde ? Manque d'inspiration de la part des développeurs, ou contraintes liées à la licence ? En tout cas cette Coupe Internationale de Martin, qui propose une conduite toujours aussi peu convaincante sur Wii, peine trop à se renouveler pour susciter un réel intérêt.
