Third in the series, in 3D
Micro Machines V3 is, gameplay wise, similar to Micro Machines the original, but instead of the nice 2D, top down graphics, this one has made the jump into the realm of the 3D graphics. The game is still seen from above, in a sort of isometric looking perspective, but the game looks much better overall. The transitions when you hit a curve, and the speed of the mini vehicles has been increased and the graphics overall, are much more modern, much more impactful. But that feel that you are playing a Micro Machines title is still there. And that means that the action is very cartoonish, that the tracks are as wacky as they ever were, with tracks made on such things as billiards tables, in rooms of houses, on the floor and so on. It's also a much friendlier game for kids, as your vehicle, when it wins, will jump around with excitement. Oh, and a tracks that is based on a chemists table, with you running around on a periodical table has got to put a smile on your face. So, definitely, if you want a top down 3D racer, Micro Machines V3 is a very good option, original and very intense from so many points of view.
