A disappointing homage to the Mega Drive games of yore, that emphasises all the wrong elements in terms of both gameplay and game modes.

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.

Micromachines World Series tries to replicate the fun of classic games. 12 player online mode is not enough to compensate the absence of a career mode, the technical failures and some online design problems (such as the lobby system and menus).

The appeal of the Micro Machines franchise is lowered down by the lack of a championship mode and the few cars and tracks available. Everyone who was, after so many years, waiting for a great new game of the saga, will be left disappointed.

A failed effort to revive an old franchise that doesn't do anything particularly wrong but not delivering a compelling single player campaing.

This isn't a bad game, but there are some omissions that have been with the series forever which are strangely missing.

Micro Machines World Series is a poorly conceived installment in the generally likable Micro Machines series.

Unfortunately, Micro Machines World Series has been forced into a corner where its eSports nature, buggy online play, and less than half features of the content of its non-licensed predecessor makes this a hard purchase.
