Is The Cars 3 Video Game Better Than The Movie?

They say life is a highway, and you should ride it all night long, but do you have what it takes to sit through an entire showing of Cars 3? Game Informer's Ben Hanson says it's easily Pixar's worst film, and a good number of critics on Rotten Tomatoes echo his sentiments.

If you don't like hearing that Lightning McQueen may have run out of gas, his tires still squawk loudly in Cars 3: Driven to Win, the video game adaptation developed by Avalanche Software. This racing experience is fun, challenging, and offers plenty of depth in its modes and challenges. You can even play through it cooperatively with a friend via split-screen, something we show off expertly in this video feature. We also dive deep into the combat mechanics and tricks, hopefully providing you with enough information to determine if the game looks better than the film.

Cars 3: Driven to Win is available now on Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U. We show off the Xbox One version in the video.
