GDC Preview: Cars 2
Posted on Wednesday, March 2 @ 06:04:46 Eastern by Nicholas Tan
Coinciding with the summer release of the titular movie, Cars 2 will take a side-spin approach and transform the Cars universe into an action racer somewhere between Twisted Metal and Mario Kart. To make the game at least somewhat canonical with the franchise, it takes advantage of the second movie's spy theme by imagining a training facility where the Cars characters must learn how to dodge, shoot, and otherwise obliterate their targets.
Between firing missiles and machine guns at your competitors during a race or an arena match, players of all ages should be able to enjoy themselves with some light-hearted comic mischief, complete with four-player split-screen (!!!). Players also unlock new tracks and cars just by playing the game in any mode, so they aren't penalized at all for liking one mode over another. Look for Cars 2 to arrive this summer on all major consoles.
