worse game ever. don't waste your money! even my 3 years old son didn't like it - and he is very dissapointed because he has a lot of hot wheels car models. poor interface, poor graphics, bad gameplay. too expensive for such quality.
I had to read comments before buying. this game is awful.

When I was younger I had an amazing Hot Wheels game for N64. I was hoping this game would be just as fun as that old one. Its not.

10/10 soundtrack though.

It's awful.

Believe the hype.
stupid voice overs, stupid physics, THE absolute worst "drift" game ever. I drove in a circle for 1 min straight, got an impossibly high "drift" score, then finished the race, top ten in the world score.

I didn't make it far enough to see AI, but let's say I'm getting a refund before then. kthx.

10/10 would refund again

so, this game
its pretty OK. and by that i means that the large amounts of OK'S make it not OK
ok?
-the controls are a bit on the down side(why am i not suprised its controller oriented?)
-the gameplay is lackluster, a bit boring really
-i can run it at 30FPS on medium (Not a bad thing, but its an achievement to my craptop)
-GAMEPLAY GIMICS HOORAY!
-theres a kinda open world aspect, i mean theres a hub but it isnt all that big when you start out
-its got Sonic'06 styled momentum (PPHHT Screw gravity, b!tch im a car)
-appearent all the cars have ice wheels, super slippery
-gotta go a max speed of 100 MPH

its pretty OK, if you want it *that* badly wait for a sale, i bought it for $5 and it seemed worth the price, definently not worth $20 though

Product received for free
Full disclosure: This was a gift from a friend. I've since got it refunded for him.

This game confuses me. When I think about playing with toy cars, I don't think about getting lectured at by somebody's dad over a powerpoint presentation, doing precision braking, being slowed down by dirt while on a dirt bike or being asked to swerve nonsensically down a meandering path. I also don't think about going in a straight line while ghosts vanish ahead into the distance. Don't get me started on the incredibly brown military base that seems to stretch out forever as a hub world, or the lack of a handbrake.

This game is so far removed from the whimsy of the toy cars it's supposed to portray, it's actually kind of amazing.

So, despite being an arcadey racing game, there's no multiplayer (they claim hotseat multiplayer, but isn't that just singleplayer?). Absolute crap.

"Be the worlds best Driver", the store page says. If being the best driver means driving on an ice skating rink, the cars are all so floaty the slightest movement causes the cars to careen off screen or into walls. From the start of the game it shows there is zero AI at all in the other computer drivers. Facing a straight road you have to hit speed jumps to go faster. Right away all the other cars speed away at the speed of light making it impossible to win. The AI opponents it seems are set to challenge the racer as if they have all upgrades already which is impossible on the first track. The game has a bunch of tracks but who cares if their impossible to unlock since you need 1st place in the first 3 stages to unlock the next set. Basically for the price you get 3 races thats it.

These should be the little cars they sell in stores, instead of feeling like their little they just feel like regular cars with really bad controls. There is no super small driving fun in a world where everything is bigger. There isnt much selection of cars seems for each team there is 2 cars, there seems to be unlockable cars but it doesnt say how to unlock them and who cares since this sucks. The announcer is the most robotic generic voice in history, its not fun it feels like someone is using a text to speech device to teach the player how to drive, that isnt fun!!! Games should be FUN!!!!

Where has this game(tm) been all my life(tm)?

This marks the first time in *years* that I've come across a game that's MST3K-tier bad. If I hadn't bought this from Greenman on uber-clearance, I'd be crying an entirely different sort of tears right now. I laughed so hard, I developed abs.

One complaint, though; I wish there was a way to tweak the controls to be slightly more absurdly sensitive. I feel like I'm not flying off the track enough.

I was not thinking, read the review. DO NOT BUY, INSTALL, OR RUN THIS GAME. The game play and controls are horrible. Kids do not ruin your life.

Well then. I suppose it's no surprise that this isn't exactly Burnout Paradise 2.

On a scale of Driveclub to 10, I'd give this about a 2. The graphics are fine, but everything else is awful.

A game that has cars, you drive on on crazy tracks that requier speed, but this game lacks speed, you can do a loop when your going 40 MPH -____- that's basicly your limit in the fastest car in the game, lame, but good for younger people learning to drive on game system or PC

Don't buy this game! It's completely hopeless on a computer. The controls are all set for an xbox controller with no way of changing them and if you try finding them you'll see that they are in the most random places. Can't change the graphics from what I could see. Played the game a whole 3 minutes.

Ugh man, how in the world can a game thats sole purpose to be a driving game fail so hard at simple driving mechanics or play control for the driving aspects. Visually it is ok but man its control is so bad that you're left frustrated all the time. My son and me played it for a whole 11 mins and was like what is this? We stopped playing and went back to a real fun racing game like Sonic All Star Racing.
