      "Micro Machines 1 and 2: Twin Turbo" is a video game released for the Gameboy Color console in 2000 by THQ. It is a remastered game featuring the original Micro Machines 1 and 2 titles for the earlier Gameboy console. In the United States, this game received a rating of "E" by the ESRB panel which deemed it suitable for all ages.

      The gameplay of this title reflects previous games in the "Micro Machines" series. The game is presented from a top down view and features miniature toy vehicles in a circuit of odd race courses including breakfast tables, kitchen counters and bathtubs. The difficulty is balanced in that players cannot outrace one another; should one vehicle advance too far ahead the race will stop and resume from a central point with the lead vehicle receiving one point. Should the leader outrace the others frequently the race will stop and the leader will be awarded the victory. There is generally little difficulty associated with racing games but Micro Machines does present a challenge in using the course. There are some jumps and bridges which are not immediately obvious and can confuse the player initially. Both games contained in this cartridge feature 24 courses which allows for 48 races.

      I find the graphics of this title to be good and remain comparable to the other higher standard releases on lower technology platforms. The display is always filled with bright, colourful images which makes good use of the console's available technology. There are few audio prompts in this game. I find that the only real audible cue in this game is the notorious "buzz" sound to suggest a vehicle's engine in motion.

      Overall, Twin Turbo is an excellent package of two remastered titles and offers extended play for longer periods of time. I would recommend this game to prospective buyers.

      This review is on the game Micro Machines, as some people know this was the best racing game in its time. It’s about very small cars driving around stupid arenas like a desk… or a snooker table, which was very entertaining. There are different drivers for different cars… and when you get further into the game you get access to more vehicles.

      You can get vehicles from sports cars to tanks and helicopters… the further in the game you get the better the vehicles. This game is very entertaining when it comes to racing this with your friends. Racing on desks… in a bathtub with my speedboat. On each level there is always obstacles, which can be easy or hard to get around, on the desk you got like a sharpener in the way or pencils blocking the road.

      You can play this game in 1 player, so you can get new levels and vehicles to play with your friends. You have to win the match to obtain the level, and there are bonus levels that you come across within the game.

      There is Grand Prix where you race against 3 other opponents so you can get points for winning and go to the next race. You normally do 3 laps for each race, depending on which race it is.

      This game is on many consoles, and very famous of a game. It is on the Snes, PC and find some on the Playstation. Some of them are not the original, there are sequels and new and improved forms of them… but they have seamed to died down.

      This game is very playable, the action in the racing is awesome fun, and all the races that have to be done makes you more wanting to play the game. The game is quite enjoyable, it is a classic, and it will entertain you for so many hours, but it can get boring once you have done so many races.

      The game is quite addictive, it will keep your attention for around a few hours, then you might not want to go back on it for a while, but it still worth having a play on it. The game is very original; it is the first of this type and has loads of mini vehicles to play with.

      The graphics are surprisingly good, you see the cars and tanks well, and the scenery is awesome also, very good, you will not be disturbed by the graphics.

      The music is quite good on this game, quite good for racing, but more like crappy music, not that good at all. There is only English for this game, and if you do not speak it well, you need to buy it from a different country. The sound effects on this game is very limited, you only here the noise of the driving, no speaking as it is such an old game.

      This game is not really that difficult, all you have to do is complete the race, which you can only do by getting the maximum points you can. You get points only on 2 player, which you have to get further ahead then your opponent, so (s)he is nearly off the picture on the screen. And then you will have advantage.

      The game is great value for money, for the Snes its only around £5 now I think, it is an old game, and a classic if you will. Not bad game, it is a recommendation, even though it will only get a 2 star, as there are much better games out now.

      This game was not bad, it entertained me for quite a long time, but it got boring after a few days.

      Thanks For Reading!
