Kids say (1):

Early in the game, players are told what to do and how to do each step along the way. After moving past the first customs show, players must remember the tasks they've done before. Tasks do get quite repetitive as one can expect, with four tires each held on with four bolts – but the object is to learn new tricks like how to change over to a dual exhaust system or add a new bumper. These new tricks take some of the sting out of the repetitive segments.

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.
