It's hard not to see the ways in which this could have been more ambitious, more innovative in the way it dusts off the past, but equally it's hard to blame Codemasters for simply giving Micro Machines fans exactly what they wanted, just how they remembered it. As a budget-priced reminder of simpler times, Toybox Turbos does everything it needed to, but sadly not much more. Here's hoping it leads to a genre revival - and a bolder sequel.

The multiplayer classic returns to its roots under a new name. If you have three friends to join you, online or off, Toybox Turbos is the true heir to the Micro Machines crown.

While the era of the Micro Machine-style racer may be left in the dust for more conventional material like Forza Horizon 2 with some folks, Toybox Turbos is a festive throwback to the arcade games of old that many will come to appreciate. It's cheap, it's packed with multiplayer options, and it's a good time behind the wheel.

Toybox Turbos might not have the Micro Machines branding then, but when it nails everything else that those licensed games did so well in the first place, it feels churlish not to look past such superfluous things. Camera issues and a relative lack of ambition aside, this is the new Micro Machines title that you forgot you wanted and quite honestly, it's just great to see this type of game again in 2014. Get some friends, get stuck in and don't mind the name above the door.
