Herbie Rescue rally race is a great light hearted race game for any young Herbie lovers. The game itself has quite a story line where Louise Noble is attempting to win the cross state race, in order to save the family's animal sanctuary. If you are looking for major stunts, this game will probably not satisfy you, although it does have a few. It has a simplistic format that is probably more suited to the younger age market. It is a kart racer type of style to it with power ups. The game itself has 4 tracks but there is variety in these, as you can participate in circuit races, speed trials and single car event. Great for any Herbie lover or anyone that is younger and not looking for too many technical moves. The heavy story line is kind of lost on my 6 year old, all she wants to see is Herbie and is not so keen on following the cartoon style story line. The variety of the tracks and race styles avoids the game itself becoming too dry. A great game for young and old!
Made the mistake of buying this as part of a deal fro Argos,wish i had of read a review first.... This is your typical movie tie in with a dash of quality thrown in,i actually really liked the simple game play as it does not mean disaster if you have a minor mishap and you are not relegated to the back of the field,controls are simple and as with a lot of these tie ins they do not utilise the touch screen very much apart from the basic functions. The graphics are ,believe it or not,not the worst i have seen on a movie racer with a very realistic looking beetle from behind. This game offers the usual fare of championship modes and cup races and even though easily completed it is still quite enjoyable,as long as you do not take it too seriously obviously the races get harder and harder but never too hard as to be impossible. Dont pay too much for this game.
The entire game is light hearted, despite the heavy plot. This is Herbie after all. The races, while set in realistic areas and featuring somewhat realistic cars, still have a lot of kart racer elements.
