If your child enjoys the Cars movie that will probably enjoying the video game.
It has over 30 races and mini games and over 10 playable characters to explore Radiator Springs.
They have levels from easy to hard. But I will tell you we found the game in itself very easy. I would think the easy level would be for those really young kids.
The graphics are really good which is a plus.
My son used to love to play this game. My husband's favorite part of the game is the tractor tipping. We would all laugh at that. There are many different paint jobs for the cars. My son's favorite is to have Lightning McQueen as a monster truck! My husband and son would spend hours playing this game and having a ball. It's a great video game to play with your children. Even if you are not a gamer, it is very easy for anyone to pick it up.
The controllers are easy to use with this game and we did not have any trouble.
Our family is into racing and this game is a fun race game. Overall it is an non challenging game to finish, but it is a clean, non violent video game.
My son is 8 years old now and I can see him slowly outgrowing this game. He still will play it now and then, but I think it just doesn't keep his interest enough anymore.
I would say this game is great for the 5-7 year old crowd.
