Finally, we get a new Micro Machines game, to long it has been since we have played with these awesome micro speedsters on creatively fascinating tracks.
One of my most fun times on a Sega Genesis involved Micro Machines, it was such a fun game to play. We would spend hours on weekend racing around tracks that were bigger than life, be it around a bathtub ridge or on a kitchen table, al the tracks were crazy fun and we just couldn’t get enough.
Now we finally have a new game to keep us busy or to drool over. A lot of developers tried to get a kids/toy car racing game going or one that had such remarkable success as Micro Machines. As a licence this franchise has always been successful as well, all boys (and grown boys) fancy Micro Machines and with the games it is like the ultimate “car play time” come to life!
The tracks are real world environments and not only that but they are scaled to the micro machine vehicles, this make for crazy fun, interesting and outrages tracks. From backyard sandpit tracks to kitchen madness there are tons of new tracks to see and discover.
With a new game and new gaming age comes new modes. First-off the classic racing returns and then Elimination is where you need to keep up with the rest of the racers or fall behind and be kicked out for the round. Then we the new battle mode, team up with other racers to compete against the other teams to capture regions and keep them occupied, this will rack up points for your team, the capture point will keep respawning at different areas to keep things interesting. Each vehicle has 4 different abilities, a basic attack and then two more powerful attacks with an ultimate attack for devastating effects. This is a crazy fun new mode and will keep anyone busy for hours on end and is great to play if you are tired of racing.
There are a lot of vehicles to choose from and about 50 things to unlock for each from skins to voices and taunts. Each time you level up your profile you will get a chest which will give you random unlock goodies.
Being that we are in the online age, it was a must for them to include online in the game. There are also special events that will keep things fresh and new. So much to do in this new Micro Machines game, however will you get time to do it all.
Time to rack up some serious gameplay hours with your friends and cause racing mayhem in Micro Machines World Series. One of my favourites for the year so far.
