  1. 57
    Chuggy framerates, mushy controls, laughable vehicle designs, and a scattered game progression and presentation spotlight admittedly solid and faithful gameplay and clever track designs.
  2. The sheer number of cars and tracks in Micro Machines V4 doesn't make up for the underlying frustration of the racing.
  3. You’ve played this game before, but better.
  4. Small isn't always beautiful, unfortunately.

    One of those games that's much more enjoyable in small doses. A quick race while you're sitting on the bus or with your kid brother/sister in the doctor's waiting room is a great way to pass a bit of time. When played in longer stretches, though, many of the game's annoyances start to really grate on you.
  6. If you weren't around for the old days Micro Machines, and you're desperate for something to race around on the DS, this is a solid, straightforward game that should keep you going, providing you can put up with its inherent foibles.
  7. Games Master UK
    Fun, fun, fun - in multi-player anyway. The rest is passable. [Christmas 2006, p.101]
  8. You could do worse with silly, weapons based driving action, but it may not warrant purchase if Mario Kart DS already has a place on your shelf.
  9. Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    The fourth Micro Machines game does the franchise proud with a host of cars, some very inventive tracks and multiplayer gameplay more addictive than chocolate milk. [Nov 2006, p.80]
  10. Nintendo Gamer
    There is the sense that this is a series in need of a real change of direction; but for the time being, rejoice before one of the most entertaining multiplayer games on DS. [Dec 2006, p.42]
