Ask most children what Hot Wheels are and you will be presented with an assortment of metal cars with great glee and explanation (and not just ­children at times).

Hot Wheels: Beat That has managed to capture this enthusiasm by recreating 30 of their best selling cars for you to race with and have built some pretty wacky tracks that you can race these vehicles on. To make this experience even more pleasurable, different power-ups have been added to either slow your ­opponent down, speed you up or just plain blow your opponent to bits. The graphics are crisp and clear with a nice upbeat soundtrack which will keep your foot tapping as you whizz your racecar along dodging rockets.

Hot Wheels: Beat That is a great experience to play but hardcore racing gamers should rather steer clear of this one as this game is for fun not seriousness.

The tracks are seriously whacky and the multiplayer races are great fun.
The AI could have been more competitive.
