The player creates an avatar of themselves by using the Kinect sensor to scan themselves and choose options such as glasses, shape of hair and eye color. In each world, your avatar is changed into a different thing: A superhero in The Incredibles, a rat in Ratatouille, an explorer in Up, a toy robot in Toy Story, and a car in Cars. The player also tries to collect coins and a best time to get points to unlock extras in the levels such as a new buddy, new goals, new special abilities and bonus concept art.
Throughout the levels, the player uncovers secret areas that may require special abilities and buddies. In these secret areas, the player finds a Buddy Coin. When all 4 Buddy Coins are collected in a level, the player gets to play as one of the characters in that level.
Depending on how many points the player gets in a level, a medal is awarded, either a Bronze, a Sliver, a Gold (7000 points or more), or a Platinum (8000 points or more).
The game received mixed reviews from critics. Metacritic gives it a 68.
The Luxo Ball appears in the Ratatouille portion, as well as appearing as medals and in the middle of the park.
A113 is seen on Mrs. Anderson's car's license plate.
The billboard of Harryhausen's again appears in the Bomb Squad level of Cars.
When the player is a male, their avatar as a car is the same car model as Lewis Hamilton. When the player is female, it is the same car model as Carla Veloso.
Although Charles Muntz was killed in Up, he seems to be alive in the game, though he is only heard on a loudspeaker throughout the levels of Up. Also, the dogs are still fighting against the player when they presumably become good at the end of the film. It could be that he survived the fall in the film, and used some other dogs.
When the player starts the game, the birds from For the Birds can be seen in the beginning cutscene.
This is the second time Owen Wilson returns to voice Lightning McQueen in a video game.
