Did we miss something on diversity?

A really enjoyable Hot Wheels experience for the whole family.

Hot Wheels Unleashed is a game that has you racing around toy cars around normal, everyday locations that have Hot Wheels tracks inside of them. After playing through and completing the Hot Wheels City Rumble, I have to say I really had a good experience. The cars all have unique, different designs to them and they have a kind of car for every player to enjoy. The loot box system is the main way to unlock new cars, and you use in-game money to get them. You can also unlock five secret cars from completing the City Rumble. The developers did an excellent job with the graphics and detail as it looks and feels very clean to play. The Switch version even got a recent update so that now if your child owns a Switch, they can play this game offline without the constant popup of having to go online. Overall, I really enjoy this game a lot. It is really awesome to play and look at. I'd highly recommend this game to anyone.
