What parents need to know

The game has multiple modes, including general racing, a game of racing tag, time trials, and elimination racing. The game is highly competitive by nature, although players can turn on an option that that allows them to compete as a team.

What's it about?
In celebration of a special alignment of planets, one of the alien races hosts a series of races across the galaxy. BEN 10 GALACTIC RACING brings familiar characters from the Ben 10 television series into a racing kart game with courses set on different planets, each with their own environment. Players can compete in a series of Grand Prix races and try for a trophy. Taking home the trophy also unlocks new tracks.
Is it any good?
BEN 10 Galactic Racing will have some appeal to fans of the franchise, although, with the focus on racing, there is little of what kids love about Ben 10 present in this game. Unfortunately, it also offers a frustrating user experience in terms of the difficulty level, poor controls, and lack of tutorial, that even the fun of racing on alien planets is lost. Think twice about this one.
