Hot Wheels Track Attack is a good choice for younger players who may not have a lot of experience with video games. It could best be described as an entry-level racing game. It is very different from the more popular racing series like Gran Turismo or Need for Speed in that it has very simple controls and the presentation is very basic. However, that does not take away from its playability for the younger audience. Unlike the high-profile franchises, this game is completely accessible. It's easy for anyone to pick up and play, and the zany racetrack environments make it a more lighthearted experience. Older players may find the game too easy, but this game isn't meant to be played by them. This is for little kids.
