Cars 3: Driven to Win is a racing video game based on the 2017 film Cars 3, developed by Avalanche Software and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. It is the first Disney game not to be published by Disney Interactive Studios since its shutdown in May 2016.[1] The game was released for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on June 13, 2017 in North America,[2] in Europe and Australia on July 14, 2017,[3] and in Japan on July 20, 2017.[4]

Gameplay[edit]

The modes that appear in the game are as follows:

  • Race: Players must compete to see who can get to the finish line the fastest.
  • Battle Race: Racing, but with weapons.
  • Takedown: Players must use weapons and power-ups to take out as many other cars as possible. When the timer runs out, the player with the most points wins.
  • Stunt Showcase: The objective here is to put on a show by performing jumps and tricks to score points and impress the crowds.
  • Best Lap Challenge: Players must try to get the best lap time around a given course.
  • Playground: A sandbox mode that allows players to go racing, perform stunts, complete challenges, or just cruise around.[5]

Cars 3: Driven to Win received "mixed or average" reviews from critics, according to review aggregator Metacritic.[6]

IGN España said "Cars 3: Driven to Win is a fun game to play with our children, using a Mario Kart style control, but simplifying it rightly. A good number of hours of play to unlock all its contents make the purchase worthwhile if you have children fans of the Pixar film."[7]
