Micro Machines World Series - PS4, Xbox One, PC trailer
There's something genuinely charming and interesting to Micro Machines World Series, but whatever that is quickly drowns in repetitive tedium. Bolting Overwatch's sensibilities onto a game like this is a novel idea but Codemasters never leans far enough in any one direction. As a result, this feels like a shell of a few different possibilities -- none of them ever making good on their individual promise.
Mixing the old with the new, it's clear that Codemasters have tried to bring Micro Machines up to date in World Series. While there's plenty of charm to the classic racing and elimination mode, I feel they could have gone even further with the ideas in Battle mode and the variety of vehicles and weapons that it contains, bringing these back to the classic modes.
