We tested the Cars 2 game on Wii with three kids, 10, 13, and 17. The younger two definitely appreciated the game much more than the older teen, and we had to try to keep it out of the hands of the 7 and 5 year olds (game recommends E ages 10+). If your heart gets pumping when you put the pedal to the metal, then Cars 2 might just give you a ticket to ride. Dangerous spy missions add some fun, but racing your favorite engines is the main appeal. So, peel out with your favorite Cars characters on a snowy day.
