I have to be upfront and honest about
something. I love the Cars franchise. My wife loves the Cars franchise.
Our two children love the Cars franchise. The founders of Family
Friendly Gaming love the Cars franchise. It is an honor and a pleasure
to be able to play another Cars game. Cars 2 has made it to the Nintendo
3DS. This is fantastic news for families that have a Nintendo 3DS.
Cars 2 on the 3DS is split into two kinds of levels. There are racing levels, and there are stealth levels. The stealth levels are where you get to play a secret agent. There are variations within the stealth levels, but the main goal is to avoid detection. The racing levels are also split up. There are grand prix races, elimination races, and one one one races.
The graphics look fantastic in Cars 2. The 3D effects are awesome. I love how the different areas of the world look different. Japan, and Germany are completely different looking, and that is great. Areas from the movie are included in Cars 2. They look very similar to how they were represented in the movie. Cars 2 on the 3DS also takes us to places not in the movie, which is really cool.
Ah the voices of Cars 2. Many of them are sound bytes but they are put together into nice conversations. I enjoyed the music almost as much as I enjoyed the voices. The 3DS version of Cars 2 has a lot of diversity to the voices as well. I played numerous different characters, and they interacted with even more characters. It is nice to see how much content Disney Interactive Studios put into this game.
Cars 2 is way longer than I expected it to be. There is a Streetpass feature, and local play for us to four players. I feel that Cars 2 on the 3DS is worth the price of admission. I also see this as the best version of Cars 2. Part of the reason is the 3DS version is non-violent. There are references to violent acts, but players avoid violence in this game.
I learned to race better thanks to Cars 2. I enjoyed watching Lightning make slight adjustments in this hand held video game. He almost looks like he is skating or rollerblading at times. This is a very neat animation. I feel very honored to have been able to play and review Cars 2 on the Nintendo 3DS. Avoiding the bad guys is something else family members can learn from Cars 2.
I feel it is important to remind parents that the 3D effects on the Nintendo 3DS are recommended for children seven and older. You do not want to be responsible for causing eye damage to your children. With that said, go and enjoy Cars 2 on the 3DS.
