Mattel takes you from playing in your yard to the beach, the office, and the playroom. The cars, like always, are colorfully crafted and designed in the Hot Wheel's fashion. The race is on, each car having its unique strengths and weaknesses. You decide which will be your favorite to win the championship. And you get a FREE Hot Wheels car with exclusive decorations – one that can't be bought anywhere else. Da Installation: The installation for this game was very straightforward. Just follow the instructions and enjoy. I experienced no problems. Da Graphics: The graphics in Hot Wheels Micro Racers are not that demanding on the computer system. The layout is very simple and yet, the picture is very clear. Your computer should have no problem running this children's masterpiece. The gaming is smooth as silk and the cars are detailed to the typical Hot Wheel's standard. Da Sound: Hot Wheel's soundtrack is very simple, nothing complex. The cars have their engine noises, turbo boost noises, and the high pitch screech that comes from intense cornering. Hot Wheels proves that it is not the complexity of a soundtrack that makes a game enjoyable. Da Gameplay: This game is perfect for the audience that Mattel has targeted. It's a child's game and therefore it's not made to please the older crowd of gamers. There are seven possible cars, and three tracks. The game is not one that will keep older gamers wrapped up for very long, but it is a classic winner with the kids. The game difficulty can be set to fit the participant, so even the really young ones can experience the ride in their favorite Hot Wheels cars. In each of the three levels there are three hidden bonus stars. Finding these stars will unlock some of the cars – allowing you to use them. When you get a star it gives you a kickin' turbo boost that sends your car into a wicked spiral leaving your competition in the dust. Some of the cars include a radical red semi-truck, a hoppin' cop car, and a fired up dragster. Get out there and win the race! Da Multiplayer Action: Another option in Hot Wheels allows you to race a friend. But the race can only take place on one computer. Internet and network connections are not supported. In the multiplayer menu you can choose the track, your car, and the kind of race. Da Conclusion: The game is definitely meant for the kids and in that way it serves its purpose. For those older gamers it won't captivate you for very long. But the racing is fun, especially when you have someone else to get down and dirty with on the track.
