Micro Machines World Series
Top Critic Average
Micro Machines World Series doesn't deserve your money or your attention. It lacks any interesting content and the fun and magic of its predecessors. If you're looking for this particular genre, then much better option would be Toybox Turbos or older Micro Machines games. Sadly, this new instalment of the series is just a waste of time.

Micro Machines World Series sees the franchise attempt to make the move into the competitive online multiplayer scene. But rather than do so by leveraging its strengths and the gameplay modes series fans enjoy playing, Codemasters have focused on a dull game mode that feels out of place with the rest of the franchise.

Overall, this is a solid game that I, personally, will keep playing well past the date on this article. I’d highly recommend it for anyone who wants a couch or online co-op game to play with a few friends and talk some smack.
The only way you're going to get anything out of this turgid experience is if you're the CEO of Nerf.
Micro Machines World Series fails to capitalise on what makes the toys and games so great, delivering a shallow experience unlikely to hold up against any level of nostalgia you might have for the tiny cars
World Series needs to fix its matchmaking, or give you singleplayer modes if it wants to be taken seriously.
With the driving mechanics being difficult to control and the artificial intelligence being cheap it can be hard to get into. The game modes are mostly not worth checking out with the exception of battle mode and sadly the online multiplayer is broken with hardly any players and poor servers
many veteran players of this series will feel let down by this latest instalment, and this is all down to the bare bones approach that the developers have taken by releasing this game with only 12 cars and 10 race tracks.
Back in 2014 we thought Toybox Turbos was the closest thing we'd get to a revitalised reboot of Micro Machines, so upon reflecting on the release of an actual brand new Micro Machines, is Toybox Turbos a better Micro Machines game than World Series? It may not have had the franchise name but it tried to be Micro Machines and succeeded, whereas World Series IS Micro Machines and it's sadly disappointing.
