Hot Wheels World Race (known as Hot Wheels: Highway 35 World Race in Europe) is a racing video game released in 2003 by Climax Group and THQ. The game is based on the movie and TV series of the same name that was released by Hot Wheels and Mainframe Entertainment, and 35 Hot Wheels toy automobiles were released in conjunction with the TV series to coincide with the 35th anniversary of the creation of the franchise.
The gameplay of World Race is similar to many other racing games. You can do special tricks when in the air, which adds on to your car's boost. Collecting gold rings also increases the boost. The PC, GameCube, and PS2 versions each have multi-player, all of which are split-screen.
The game was met with mixed to negative reception. GameRankings and Metacritic gave it 65.17% and 55 out of 100 for the PlayStation 2 version; 64.33% and 64 out of 100 for the PC version; 60.64% and 59 out of 100 for the GameCube version; and 49.50% and 48 out of 100 for the Game Boy Advance version.
