What parents need to know

Ease of play

This is a very accessible racing game in that it has a very basic, unintimidating control scheme. It's designed to be a casual game that intrigues players by going for the best time over and over again rather than trying to be a highly sophisticated racing simulator.

Violence & scariness

It is possible to run into bombs or other hazards, but these are mainly seen as a deterrence rather than an integral part of the game. Crashing into obstacles can result in players finishing in last place so there is never any encouragement of violent activity.

What's it about?

Dream Track Nation is a racing game that ditches the glossy high-definition graphics for an exclusive focus on just good old-fashioned fun. Instead of driving around Ferraris and Maseratis, this game features a car that looks as though it was drawn by a grade-schooler. The race tracks likewise look pretty simplistic. The game shows that nothing is always as it seems, though, because the graphical style actually ends up making the game more interesting and more unique, with winding twists and turns that aren't possible on a standard race track. There is also a feature that allows players to create their own tracks and then have the satisfaction of racing through their own creations.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

DREAM TRACK NATION is a great choice for players who like racing games but may be intimidated by the increasingly sophisticated and cumbersome titles available, and for those with a creative mind. The track creator is definitely the standout feature here, and it has a highly intuitive and user-friendly interface. The ability to share tracks with friends and race online with others makes it an even more engaging experience.
