    It's not even really a "racing" game.. [​IMG] Well so far anyway. I played 5 minutes of the "click on this lane to make the car change lanes to avoid obstacles" game, and I am not sure if that's the entire game, or just one of a few different gametypes but it sucks and I haven't used a period in a good while so I will end this sentance now.

    I heard somewhere this is WiFi. I even saw it on Nintendo.com. But cant find it elsewhere. Is this true?

    Cool looking screens? Where?
    Disney has been nothing but cheap after they went all 3D animation.
    So much copy and pasted animation and graphics. Movie wise anyway.

    As for the game.... its by THQ. Wich Ive never seen make a decent non cheaply made game from before. Not unless theres more intervention from another company or something. Though that never shows much in the games.

    Anyway, Im curoius if this game would be any good at all. Like even playable enough to be interesting.

    So could someone post some screens? Never know when I might be wrong about it xD

    Edit: ok, I return to what I was saying.
    This game cant possibly be good.

    Touch to switch lanes? What the smeck?
    How is that racing? Its like a LCD racing obstacle game but with 3D graphics.

    I think I'll save my Flash cart the trouble of burning this one.

    Whats the next upcoming NDS racing game anyway?

    It's just a bunch of stupid little touch screen games - there is one racing mode (kind of) however, but that sucks too. Overall ~0.99999999999999999999%

    Noo! say it isn't so!
    From the screens I thought it would be a supercool top-down racer using both screens, something like Nitro, SuperCars, MicroMachines etc
    Now you are saying it's just a bounch of click-click minigames [​IMG]

    Ok, so there is a "real" racing mode, but it sucks... there is no corners or other common racing track features [​IMG] you just stomp the accelerator, go in a straight line and jump over any cars you need to pass. Lame.

    It doesn't work for me properly, patched it using Supercard v2.51 software, i finish the first stage then i get an endless black screen.

    Tried patching with v2.44 same thing, is there a workaround?

    Yeah [​IMG]

    Reboot your DS after every level once you get the balck screens (it seems to save and then blackout :/ )

    BUT it saves [​IMG]

    Think we have to wait for a new software update [​IMG]

    Tried this game today. Yesterday, i didnt wanted to believe all the reports that it sucked. Well it does... I guess all the kids that will love the movie could find some interest in it but you really have to be a Hard-core fan of cars to find anything remotly fun that could hold some value for more than 20 minutes. GFX are fine though,even great! This game could have been much more.

    Well, the 3D graphics are all right but, the game itself is just a collection of mini games. Would have been great if they included some footage of Pixar's new movie [​IMG]

    I didn't play the game for long but, first there's a mini game where you have to fill cars up with fuel. You cycle through the 10+ spots and fill each car before they get mad and leave. Gets pretty hard towards the end! Then there's a watch the traffic lights game where you watch the lights blink in a sequence then you repeat. For the third choice, you switch lanes, dodging cars like Tshu mentioned.

    Not a game I'd play long for.
