Santa Monica, CA, March 2, 2001 -- The toys from Disney's Toy
Story animated feature film are pitted against each other in
Disney/Pixar's "Toy Story Racer" for the PlayStation game
console and Nintendo Game Boy Color from Disney Interactive, Pixar
Animation Studios and Activision, Inc.
The video games are rated ``E'' by the ESRB and are available for
a suggested retail price of $39.99 (PlayStation game console) and
$29.99 (Game Boy Color).
A remote controlled racing adventure game, "Toy Story Racer"
lets players select one of 12 Toy Story characters, including
Buzz Lightyear, Woody and Hamm, each with a unique vehicle and signature
driving style. Players can revisit some of their favorite environments
from the movie with 18 tracks and surprise pick-ups.
The game's intuitive artificial intelligence (AI) ``learns'' from
each player's performance and adjusts to his or her skill level
on the fly. Additionally, unique character-specific challenges open
up hidden characters and quests, allowing the game to unfold like
a storybook. More than 150 character challenges include racing,
chasing and stunt driving.
