News:: Review: Micro Machines World Series

Micro Machines World Series wants to be Overwatch. It's an odd fit for a top-down racer to draw inspiration from a hero shooter, but that's what World Series does. The influence is immediately apparent -- from the different classes of vehicles each outfitted with their own abilities and ultimates, to the identical loot box/unlockables system (don't fret, there aren't any microtransactions).

In a way, this mimicry elevates Micro Machines World Series. The ambitious imitation at the heart of this game has an infectious enthusiasm about it, like it wants to be more than we expect of it. However, in a more meaningful way, there's not enough substance for it to ever make good on that ambition. What little is here goes threadbare before long.
