נסו לשחק אותו במהירות המירבית ואני מתחייב לכם שתאבדו את השפיות שלכם.
Super Play
I det stora hela är Micro Machines 64 Turbo exakt samma spel som Micro Machines V3 till PlayStation. Det är lite synd, för trots allt så är det nog få som inte redan har spelat det. När samma banor, bilar och specialeffekter dyker upp i samma ordning som tidigare blir man lite besviken. Det gör absolut inte det här till ett sämre spel. Men de som redan har spelat det gör bättre i att vänta på nästa.
Mega Fun
Diesen Funracer kann man von zwei Seiten sehen. Die einen werden einwenden; „Schwach, dass nach über zwei Jahren ‘nur‘ eine nahezu 1:1-PlayStation-Konvertierung herausgekommen ist!“ Fans aber werden begeistert aufschreien: “Endlich darf ich auf meinem 64-Bitter den Funracer-Klassiker genießen!“ Für welche Ansicht man sich auch entscheiden mag. Fakt ist auf jeden Fall, dass das unverwüstliche Spielprinzip einfach nicht totzukriegen ist und die Veränderungen im Detail der Spielzeugraserei ganz gut getan haben. Meines Erachtens gehört dieser Klassiker ohnehin in jede gut sortierte Softwaresammlung, alleine schon wegen des genialen Multispieler-Modus.
The Video Game Critic
The tracks convey a good sense of humor and attention to detail. The main problem with Micro Machines 64 has got to be its limited overhead view, which doesn't let you see much of the track ahead. If you go too fast, you may find yourself flying off the table before you even see it coming! As a result, success in this game is largely a matter of memorizing the tracks. Still, you can't beat Micro Machines for chaotic, multiplayer racing action.
Total! (Germany)
Die Unterschiede in Grafik und Sound sind zwischen beiden System kaum auszumachen, wodurch sich Besitzer der PlayStation-Version einen erneuten Kauf sparen können. Alle anderen erhalten mit Micro Machines 64 Turbo ein spaßiges Rennspiel mit vielen Strecken und Fahrzeugen, das vor allem mit mehreren Freunden so richtig zu begeistern weiß.

Micro Machines 64 Turbo is nu al een klassieker onder de nieuwe releases. Dit komt niet door speciale gameplay of originaliteit maar gewoon door het feit dat deze Micro Machines versie niets afdoet aan het origineel. Micro Machines 64 Turbo is een talentvolle nieuwe telg binnen de MM-familie, en dat is heel wat waard.
Digital Press - Classic Video Games
While it's hardly a common occurrence on the N64, this racing title is a complete success. Unlike many others, it's perfect for anyone if they've had a little experience playing video games. If you're familiar with the franchise, the camera change will be aggravating, but not enough to keep you away from a superb little game.
I don't think anyone will argue that MM64 Turbo is a serious racing game. Quite the contrary, it couldn't be more un-serious and that's what makes it so much fun. It is a well-produced game that can, at first, appear deceptively simple. Try it and I think you will agree that it has a little something to offer everyone (even hardcore racing enthusiasts). I would recommend it to anyone.
Micro Machines V3 était un très bon jeu sur Play. Sa conversion sur N64 est une réussite qui nous offre en plus la possibilité de jouer à 8. Le jeu est bourré d'humour : vous jubilerez quand vous attraperez l'énorme maillet qui vous permettra d'écraser vos adversaires comme des mouchess. Un vrai bon jeu pour jouer à plusieurs.
The graphics and the replay value remain fairly high, considering the options on hand. The sound effects are also appropriate for a game of this nature, although the buzzing of a group of boats can be grating at times. Unfortunately, if you already own the PlayStation incarnation, you're probably better off with that version, as the increased multiplayer options are the only recommendation for the N64 version. If you only have an N64, and you are looking to grab a great multiplayer game, then Beetle Adventure Racing is a far better investment. That said, any of you seriously craving Micro Machines action on your Nintendo probably won't be too disappointed. It's not like it's a bad game, it just could have been much better.

For a game that features so many multiplayer options, the interface of Micro Machines is surprisingly unsuited to multiplayer sessions. Every time one car lags behind the pack or crashes, the entire game stops while the offending car blows up. Some of the tracks are well thought out, but the multiplayer mode is atrocious. I like goofy games like this, but the dorky characters are embarrassing.
