Hot Wheels World’s Best Driver 2020:
Hot Wheels, toys that seem to be getting more and more old fashioned in our digital world, have a go at their own video game. For those who used to pull off some massive (imaginary) stunts with these toy cars, be prepared to take a mediocre trip down memory lane.
The only thing that gives you the slightest impression of having a story is the fact you’re able to choose between 4 teams that each have their own set of special properties, missions and narrator that tells you what to do during the loading screen.

Of course a game like this doesn’t need that much backbone when it comes to a storyline but having something is still better than nothing. In this case it’s more the latter.
This multi-platform game looks not only like a blast from the past when it comes to the memories of having your own Hot Wheels toy cars but the graphics look heavily dated as well. The environment in the test facility looks empty with a giant lack of details and pretty much no appeal.
That being said, a few levels look decently done and are actually pleasing to watch. Sadly these are the equivalent of having one edible cookie in an entire cookie factory.
Music wise the game isn’t actually all too bad. The tunes will get you going and will even motivate you to try and reach your goal. Sadly, only a slight plus for the horrors still to come.
After you’ve picked the team you want to play with, for the time being, you’ll be able to choose any of the vehicles of the corresponding team. At least when you’ve unlocked all of the rides. When having selected the vehicle you love, you’ll be dropped off at the test facility in which you can drive around with your vehicle.
Driving around in the test facility is pretty much the equivalent of selecting the correct option in a menu. This means your selection of a vehicle has no point whatsoever. You’ll only be able to drive around aimlessly or just drive up to the building you desire.
When driving up to the building to select the event in which you want to compete you’ll instantly feel your earlier selection of a vehicle was even more pointless than you’d have expected. Each event assigns you a vehicle, leaving out the one of your choice.
As stated earlier, each of the teams has their own set of events. Most of the teams will have around four different kinds of events in their league. These events might have been fun concepts but kind of lack the finishing touches.
Most of them only last around a minute or two, which is about the same as the loading time. To earn progress you’ll have to earn medals, by beating your own records to earn more and more medals. When earning medals you’ll unlock the next batch of levels and so on. Earning medals is easy to do, getting top scores for everything isn’t all that easy. If you happen to be a medal hunter, you’ll be able to unlock the last level for each team and complete a duel to unlock the last vehicle for the team you’re playing at that time.
Hot Wheels World’s Best Driver has the option to play the game in its own pseudo-multiplayer way. You’ll be able to take turns in finishing an event, which is called the Hot Seat mode.
In this mode each of the players will be able to do an attempt at a level until all players have had their turn. You’ll have to pass the controller around instead of each having their own controller or at least having the option of choosing between both options.
