Mixing miniature mayhem with maximum multiplayer racing, MICRO MACHINES v4 game will arrive packed with knockabout, breakneck racing in the fastest scale miniatures, complete with explosive weapon power-ups. Letting you loose with hundreds of vehicles, each with distinctive performance abilities, you'll be racing your inch-long miniature motors on the wildest tracks where everyday household objects appear immense in size and can become lethal hazards.
Sport cars, street racers, stock cars, 4x4s, beach buggies, lowriders and muscle cars are just some of the MICRO MACHINES models you'll be taking out on the improvised tracks around the MICRO MACHINES house, garden and - for the first time - beyond!
Fans of classic MICRO MACHINES games will rejoice in the return of some of the series' most popular racing arenas. Spin out around the breakfast table littered with cereal spills, tear through the kitchen, turbo boost around the pool table (while avoiding the treacherous pockets), or hit the gas as you drive around the rim of the bath, carefully negotiating the ferocious waters pouring over the edge of the bath.
As well as the familiar feel-good environments, MICRO MACHINES v4 game sees your racing world expand further than any previous MICRO MACHINES game. Go beyond the house and garden tracks and discover what it's like to race across house roofs, in the sewers, through supermarkets, museums and even down to the farm, with its danger-packed chicken coop!
Of course, it wouldn't be MICRO MACHINES without an arsenal of power-ups and weapons to collect and use on your opponents while you're racing. The MICRO MACHINES v4 game brings all the favourites back, including -the car-mounted giant hammer!

Micro Machines V4 is one of those O.K games that will be a sort of filler to your game collection. For those who have owned previous Micro Machine games it is worth adding to the collection but do not expect to much.

The game involves a lot of racing around tracks but sometimes you have to win by being first across the line other times its about scoring points to win. There are weapons to help along the way and a variety of tracks each filled with hazards will keep you racing for a while. One nice element is that you unlock collections of cars which you can use to race with.

Graphics wise the game does have a nice look to it - backgrounds, moving objects, car models etc... but don't expect to much. The sounds in the game are not exactly masterpeices but they are nice. Although there are several modes like time trials and races after a while of playing it becomes very repetitive. Playability wise you will find it a game where you can play it, leave it and comeback to it easily - although you might find you don't play on it as long.

Overall:
A good enjoyable game worth having but do not expect a masterpeice.

 Fun for a while but the graphics let it down...badly.

Micro Machines has always been a fun little game and it has appeared on most systems since its creation in the early nineties. Even now in this day of high end graphics and such in depth game play it is still fun to just pick up and race around table tops and pool tables, collecting weapons and winning points. Whilst this game isn't the best version I've played (Playstation one version still is the best for me(MMV3)), it is still enjoyable. There are a couple of disappointing things with it which I'll get out of the way first.

Firstly the graphics aren't brilliant, even though I know the DS isn't a high graphics machine, with games such as Mario Kart and Diddy Kong Racing which are big games in themselves, they should have done better.

Also because of the graphics and the sometimes slowness of them, it can affect the handling of the cars, although to be honest you do get the hang of them eventually but they never feel intuitively controlled. Some cars will be more difficult to control than others depending on their specs but the higher speed cars for example mean when turning a corner there is a bit of a delay so it makes it a little bit more difficult to judge corners. You have to anticipate the corners a bit more, otherwise you will fly off into oblivion.

The other thing I would say is that you need to have your own copy of the game if you want to play multiplayer games. Again with Mario Kart multiple people can use one cartridge and this now appears to be the standard, yet Micro Machines has missed out on this brilliant feature. It is a shame that Codemasters didn't take advantage of this as I bought the game thinking I would be able to play against other people and have ended up just playing it by myself and that I would say is Micro Machines biggest attraction, racing against your friends and knocking them off the tracks or blowing them up trying to win that all important point.

The tracks that are on offer are fun though and there is a big selection of cars to choose from, 750 in fact. The idea of this is that you can swap them with other players and build your collection that way. The cars are separated into different styles, classes and collectability however most of these cars, other than the look, will have similar attributes to other cars and I think they should have had less cars and concentrated on better graphics.

Fun for a while but this will be a game that will be left on the shelf after a while due to there being better competition. I have both Mario Kart and Diddy Kong Racing and will be playing them for a long time yet, unfortunately Micro Machines is in last place.

 I wouldn't recommend this game.

This game is rubbish. I've played old Micro Machine games that have been loads better than this. The graphics are bad and there's nothing special about this game. I was really disapointed when I first played it and haven't really played it since.
