    Has anyone tried this game in the various EU versions released?

    Is it a platformer like most movies or a racing game as the boxart would hint at?

    Probably a racer seeing the developer Firebrand Games is developing it. This is what they've done previously:

    # Cartoon Network Racing (2006) DS
    # Race Driver: Create and Race (2007) DS
    # Ferrari Challenge (2008) DS
    # Race Driver: GRID (2008) DS
    # TrackMania DS (2008) DS
    # Need for Speed: Undercover (2008) DS
    # DiRT 2 (2009) DS
    # Need for Speed: Nitro DS

    They're also doing Trackmania Wii. I find most of those DS versions to be decent at best to awful.

    It looks like shovelware. Dirt 2 was good, but everything else hasn't seemed to be a solid effort.

    It's different. You start off in a UFO racer where you just touch the screen to the left of the vehicle or the right of the vehicle to dodge oncoming traffic, or you can touch above the vehicle to jump. Then you're on a scooter and have to follow someone. I just played it for a few minutes and went back to playing Sideswiped.
