Summary

Micro Machines But Not Micro Fun

The Good

Micro Machines was a great little game. A top down racer that was frenetic and addictive. This was a game that was great in single player mode but also had a fun two player versus mode.

The main body of the game was in the challenge mode. You chose a character to play as and raced your way through a couple of dozen levels. Each level was usually a familiar scene, such as a breakfast table or pool table to a bathtub. Each had been modified into a racing circuit. In micro machines there were several types of vehicle to drive, ranging from sportscars to speedboats, each of these was different to drive and were found on different levels.

The difficulty curve was about perfect and the game was easy to get into to. The graphic detail was superb also. It was a triumph of both originality & playability from Codemasters.

The Bad

I find the music in this game to be a little grating.

The Bottom Line

A quirky top down racer which is very enjoyable to play.
