Well now. The Hot Wheels game looks surprisingly okay.
The first gameplay for Hot Wheels Unleashed, below, shows off what looks like a decent arcade racer starring the cars from the hugely-popular toy range.
In truth there's not a huge amount going on here apart from the driving, with a lack of environmental hazards or even power-ups to contend with. But the racing looks weighty, has decent oomph and the visuals aren't too bad. And did I spot a few shortcut opportunities to explore? Compared to how I thought Hot Wheels Unleashed would look, well, it's better.
