Motoring madness for all ages

It's all about speed in Buzz! Junior: Ace Racers – the newest game in the Buzz! Junior series on PlayStation 2.

Previous Buzz! Junior games have taken us to a Jungle Party, a Dino Den, a Monster Rumble and even a RoboJam. This time, we're taking our Buzz! Buzzers to the racetrack for some high speed high jinx in Buzz! Junior: Ace Racers.

The simple controls and colourful cartoon graphics make this game suitable for all ages, especially young children, and parents will enjoy playing too.

In Grand Prix mode, up to four players can race each other on 30 circuits, across land, sea and air. You hold the Buzz! Button to accelerate, release it to brake and press one of the four coloured buttons to use your turbo boost. Thanks to the simple controls, anyone can pick up and play and the accessible Buzz! Buzzers are a joy to use.

There's great fun to be had racing around the varied environments, taking in Incan rainforests, bustling cities and spooky graveyards and trying to make it all the way round without spinning off.

To break up the racing action, players can take part in bonus mini-games, including Car Crusher, where you must press the right coloured buttons to crush cars on a conveyor belt, and Low Riders: a rhythm action game in which you press the coloured buttons in time to the music. There's also a training mode, where you can practice for the next big race or take on any of the bonus games and try to beat your high score.

Buzz! Junior: Ace Racers is a great game for anyone who has young children and is looking for a fun multiplayer game that you can all enjoy together. It's another excellent addition to the Buzz! Junior range.
