It's my little boys birthday in a couple of weeks and I wanted to get a DS game for him but as it's only a filler item I didn't want to spend too much. He is mad on cars and his favourite film is Cars and so was thinking about that game. Thing is there are two and I don't have a clue, does anyone which is the best. He'll be 5 and he plays mario 64 and mario bros at the mo. Rep will be left x

If he enjoys Mario 64 and Mario Bros he would like Mario Kart DS which is a much better game than both those Cars games you mentioned :)

the reviews on amazon.com for cars mater national are all good and recommend it for kids if that helps

where as the amazon.co.uk reviews for the first cars isnt so great for children

also found this review from ign http://uk.ds.ign.com/articles/838/838914p1.html

It's definitely a better decision to get Cars Mater-National over the DS prequel, but, unless the recipient is in the elementary school age bracket, it's still not recommended. The game has enough charm and movie references to be cool for major fans of the film. However, the racing is really rather basic, keeping it from being a real competitor in the racing game genre. Had there been a harder difficulty option, and had the actual racing been a little more polished, we would recommend a purchase. Instead it's only worth a test drive.


finally also found this review of mater

My 5-yr. old loves this game!

My son is a big Cars fan. This game has many race tracks to choose from. His favorite part is that he can choose to be many different cars characters. More are unlocked as the game progresses. He can drive very well, though other kids have had a hard timecontrolling the cars. I suppose there is a learning curve. This is a favorite DS game of his and much, much better than the first CARS game.

Funny enough I saw that in the deals on here yesterday for £19 and that's what I was going for but then saw the cars ones and thought that being 'Cars' he'd prefer one of those. If ur saying they're cr*p though I'll go with that!!

Go with Mario Kart if you can, if not then Cars Mater seems the best choice of the 2.
