Disney Studios Interactive Inc. this week demonstrated Cars 2: The Video Game for Sony Corp.’s Playstation 3, Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox 360, and Nintendo Co.’s Wii at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.
Cars 2 will include trademark vehicles like Lightning McQueen, Mader, and new vehicles from the sequel like Finn McMissile.
The title allows users a variety of in-racing options, including power-up items to fire at rivals, drift button, turbo, a left or right nudge to bump the competition, and a jump to hop over obstacles.
The controls were easy and intuitive. The title relayed fast kart-like action with all options easy to execute in-race. The Wii version, which includes Wii Wheel support, controlled accurately to each turn.
The graphics engine held at 30 frames-per-second with colorful, multi-road tracks. In addition, each car is rendered faithfully from the film, including front-end facial expressions.
Cars 2: The Video Game will be sold in late June.
Sony in May began sale of the PS3 160GB Call of Duty: Black Ops Bundle, which includes the PS3 160GB hardware, a copy of Activision Blizzard Inc.’s Call of Duty: Black Ops, the Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike DLC Pack, and a Dualshock 3 Controller at $299.99.
