Disney Pixar's Cars 2 Game: Fun For Everyone!

We recently received the Disney Pixar's Cars 2 PS3 game courtesy of BzzAgent.  I was so excited that we were chosen for this BzzCampaign because my son is a HUGE Cars fan! And I have to say, this game did not disappoint! 
   To sum it up simply...this game was/is a HUGE hit!  The guys & gals @ Disney Pixar have really figured out how to make this game fun for everyone!  My(7 year old) son would play 24/7 if I would let him!  As would my(14 year old) daughter, (19 year old) niece & (36 year old) husband!  I've played quite a bit myself!
  In the Disney Pixar Cars 2 game, you get to be in the driver's seat.  They give you over 20 characters to choose from.  You can choose to drive as one of the originals, such as Mater and Lightning McQueen or try out a new character, like Finn McMissile and Holley Shiftwell.  These exciting, new characters were introduced in the much anticipated Cars 2 animated film this summer. Awesome movie by the way, in case you haven't seen it!  While playing, you get to become spies!  The game is set up to teach you all kinds of spy skills too.  It lets you practice as long as you want.  You decide when you're ready to move onto the next skill.  This is one of my favorite aspects of the game because it lets the kids decide when they're comfortable enough at a maneuver before they try to learn a new one!  As a spy, you get to travel all over the world doing harrowing missions and competing to be the top racecar driver all the while!
  You also get to train as secret agents at C.H.R.O.M.E.(the Command Headquarters for Recon Operations and Motorized Espionage).  Here, they teach you how to do Cars maneuvers such as drifting, backwards driving, and air tricks.  Another really fun aspect of this game is that you get to use one-of-a-kind weapons while you're racing.  These weapons help you compete by giving your fellow racers obstacles to slow them down, causing wrecks, etc.  The catch...your opponents get to use the weapons on you as well! 
  Cars 2:  The Video Game has an ESRB Rating of Everyone to Everyone 10+ and is available in the Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, Nintendo DS and PC/Mac formats.  In my opinion, children younger than 10 can play the game as well.  My son is 7 and had no trouble learning the skills & racing.  That's probably at least due in part to the training sessions available, as I mentioned earlier.  I give this game an A+!  It really is fun for everyone!
