Disney•Pixar Cars 2: The Video Game reviews and comments

Microsoft from Deutsch
When I fell back into my Cars nostalgia from the Third Part of the Film, and conveniently this Game was down to Steam, I bought it right away, installed it and started it, but was unfortunately immediately exited. The Menu design Seems very much with all Its Anemations and the Look and Feel at first. Well, "matching the Theme" And "Hip" and "cool" and "Modern," but over time It is very exhausting, especially because thanks to the great Animations you have to wait for a few years to get a Menu item further and, for example, you don't have the key assignments without the Click of a Mouse Can edit. (Enter wants to save the Settings that you haven't set anything at all.) What is also striking is the Graphic. The really not pretty graphic. So really not, despite the Setting "High." It later turned out that when you put on "Low," nothing changes at all. So really nothing. I try to be brief: There is no Storymode, no open world, if you jump over Shackles (so where the Game even wants you to Sprinter), you see how little Effort has been put to the Level Design (So Textures invisible from the other Side as well as Pixel-thin Walls (GLEICH IM 2. TUTORIAL), If you are not McQueen or Hook at Races, but the Chinese Racing Car, for example, he simply appears twice in the Race. TWO MAL, once as an Opponent and once as a Player. Two times the same Character .. The same Personality. Yes.. Positives: The Main Menu is made quite cute, from time to time a Character comes by, say a saying, play an Animation and drive back off the Screen (Whereby it seems to me as if there are only 3 Davon, with one Saying in one minute each, I heard d The same Saying Around 3 Times, no, wait, here I wanted to write the Positive ..) And I like the Jump Animation. And the unsurmountable Tutorial was great, too. Didn't know that you have to steer left to go left. (Wasn't a positive now, but found I wrote too few positives) Ok, that's that again, too. USAMMENFASSING IT's just not well done .. In Defense, the Game had barely an Hour open, but these Points struck me so much that I had no Desire at all. I think That is such a shame. Maybe I just got too old, though. If You want to buy or give yourself a cars game, Get the first Cars game or Cars-Hook International (At least the first Part no Way for a 16:9 resolution, the OldGameWidescreen Must have Patcher) Both (practically The Same Texture resolution As well as Mimic Animations,) a great Open-World, a hammer (and especially long) Story, many More playable characters, so many different Types of Missions, Mini-games etc. and of course also simple Unrelated casual Races in which you Map and Character and so on. And just not only, as here, this Contireless Race (Fun fact: The Game hangs up when Ending during a Race: I wanted to close the Game ingame via ESC-> Back to Windows, then had nothing except a Black Screen with FPS display on the right above, and the Task Manager says: Inactive. Super, right?)
