Parents are probably safer selecting something like Beetle Adventure Racing or Diddy Kong Racing for their kids.
Funny thing is, I'm not so sure hard-core racer fans will find World Driver Championship to be all that accurate of a simulation either. The game seems to march to the beat of its own drum and those who are able to tune into its rhythm will find it an addictive and rewarding experience.
Arcade racing fans who feel that Tom Cruise "need for speed" will want to stay away from this one. Not only are the controls difficult to grasp, but the overall sense of speed is not readily apparent. This higher degree of learning is sure to frustrate younger players.
