Mater's Tall Tales is a Racing game available on the Wii VTECH-MOBIGO. It can be played in Singleplayer Competitive Cooperative modes.

Mater's Tall Tales is a Racing game. Racing games, although sometimes seen as a sporting sub category, are a well established video game genre in their own right.

Mater's Tall Tales can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.

Mater's Tall Tales can be played in a Competitive mode. Competitive Multiplayer games provide experiences where players compete against each other and the computer. Obviously lending itself to sports and team games, these competitive engagements have also dominated the shooting and fighting genres because of the direct combat and expertise involved in each. Although these games were originally played in a split screen style, more recently they are played online via services such as PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and the Nintendo Wireless Connection.

Mater's Tall Tales can be played in a Cooperative mode. Cooperative Multiplayer games provide an experience that is played symaltaneously by multiple players. Unlike the simple arena competitive multiplayer style games where players try to kill the most enemies, true co-operative games are designed to take a group of players through a campaign experience together. This will involve sections where players have to work together to proceed - either from the sheer difficulty as in Halo 3 on 360 or by the design of levels such as LittleBigPlanet on PS3.

Mater's Tall Tales Wii lacks the open world of Cars, Mater-National or Race-o-rama, but its four player mini-games mean that the whole family can play at the same time.

Cars Toons, is an extension of the Pixar Cars film. Short animations like Tokyo Mater were released on newer Pixar films as bonus content. More recently they have been brought together on the Mater's Tall Tales DVD.

Junior Gamer review Sun, 06 Feb 2011

Meter's Tall Tales MobiGo is simple, educational fun. Better than this though, it lets the very youngest players join in with the Pixar videogame fun.

Me and my two brothers really loved the Cars film. But that was a long time ago, so it's good that they have made some new cartoon games for it.
