Edutaining Kids (Dec, 2006)
This game is unique in that children truly experiment as they play. Through trial and error, as well as solid thinking skills, they make their way through the game. Children need to figure out which combinations of parts will work for various missions and driving feats. Younger players will need some help to begin with--the software does some hand-holding, but won't tell you exactly what to do. For families looking for a unique title, this one is sure to delight. It's nothing like the standard activity centers or adventure learning games that are commonly produced.
Tech with Kids (Computing with Kids) (Jun 01, 2007)
Building Cars is a good fit for kids ages 6 to 10 who like cars or like to tinker. If your kids enjoy creating with Legos or other building sets, then they will probably enjoy this open-ended game of constructing cars. But, if your kids are used to playing fast-paced video games, they will probably quit this game before they discover its imaginative playground.
Game industry News (GiN) (2007)
Gary Gadget: Building Cars is a fun and funny family experience being offered for a great price online. The game comes on a hybrid CD that works with PCs running Windows XP and any Mac running System X. It earns 4 GiN Gems that Gary will probably just toss into his garage, at least until he can incorporate them into a new vehicle.
Christ Centered Gamer / Christ Centered Game Reviews (Dec 29, 2006)
This is a cute game and the concept is good. The quests are fun and I like how you have to overcome environmental hurdles to complete them. The downloadable parts online is a great way to extend the game play. My biggest complaint is the stability. No one likes losing their progress but to have duplicate parts on top of it is really annoying.
Gary Gadget is best for young kids who like to build things, and/or to explore and solve puzzles. It is not designed to appeal to true video game players who might require faster paced action and higher resolution graphics.
Game Chronicles (Jan 04, 2007)
Gary Gadget: Building Cars is a very good kid’s game that has a lot going for it. You not only introduce kids to problem solving puzzles and working towards goals in a game that has some fun little missions like helping your neighbors.
