Clunky car combat collides with bad controls, weak gameplay.

The game is ok but the ads are not

My 12-year-old son plays this game. The cars crash into each other and earn points but there isn't any gore. My main concerns are the ads that pop up throughout the game. Some ads are inappropriate and relate to dating, relationships and gambling. The ads concern me far more than the game itself and I'm not sure if you can avoid them.

Car crashing violence in fantasy game can discourage kids to drive cars when they grow up.

The game itself is fine, and I can tell that the common sense reviewer was angry because he kept on getting "exploded". When you learn from this game, your kids will either be crashing into other people when they get their own cars, or they just not drive them at all. Overall, good game. The game contains: Easy to play/use (except for the common sense reviewer) Too much violence (a questionable "powerup" is a uplifting bomb, along with more violent powerups.) Sex (Sex can be based on the usernames players input/insert, but sometimes Crash of Cars itself censors the names) Swearing (Again, based on the name the player puts) Consumerism (In-app purchases, microtransactions, pay-to-win) Drinking/Drugs/Smoking (Depending on the name, I once saw a name named "Juice" but I think i know what he meant) Privacy Policy (Included on-load) Fine game.

Is It Any Good?

While this online multiplayer car combat game has a certain cartoony appeal, its controls leave much to be desired. In Crash of Cars, you drive SUVs, ice cream trucks, and other motor vehicles around large open arenas such as a city or the moon. As you do, you have to pick up as many floating gold crowns as you can before you're killed by the other online players who are also trying to grab the crowns. Good thing someone leaves weapons lying around where anyone can grab them and that you can damage enemy vehicles by crashing into them. But while this may sound like fun, it's unfortunately undermined by bad controls. To start, the combination of super-sensitive steering and constant acceleration mean that being stuck against a wall isn't a matter of "if" but "when." Even worse, to use a weapon, you have to move your right thumb so far away from the right steering button that you can't attack and avoid being attacked at the same time. Also, while some vehicles come with different abilities (for example, the hovercraft can briefly drive over water) and have different unlockable weapons, these don't change the game much, and this lack of variety won't keep anyone engaged for long. As a result, Crash of Cars is almost as bad as getting rear-ended when you're late to work.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
