Or not....
It was this price pre release. I brought it because of my memories of the Amiga game.
Not the Best Buy. Great fun for kids
I got this at launch, traded a day later. They've preyed on people's nostalgic memories when in fact this game is an absolute stinker.
Terrible game, think theres 400 people who own it on ps4 and the servers crash, the AI is way OP and has a vendetta for you, and to top it off trophies are almost impossible and one is glitched haha, sent mine back

True. Buts it's the only 2 and 4 player split screen racing game on Xbox

So when ur mates round and you wanna play a racing game. This is all u got.
I bought it for the £14.99 pre-order, saved it for the lads birthday in a few weeks, but have ended up sending it back as all the reviews I read say it's pants! A great shame.....

Bought and just waiting for Crash b to turn-up. Ok more money (27.99 via tesco), but I know he will love it...

Forza? Trackmania Turbo?

And of course Sonic and Sega All Stars!
I'll give heat for the price itself but after playing t his I can't say it's even worth your time. It would have to be at least £10 or less to meet the value of the content your getting.

Never knew. Looked at co-Optimus website all the time. Couldn't find any of these on the list.

I will revise to 4 player split screen? Please correct me if I'm wrong!
When this was first posted I said to wait for reviews as I suspected this was another "Kick Off". Fool me once......

Shame really as its such a simple formula.
Oooof. I'd be in two minds to recommend this mess at £9.99 to be honest. I'm not voting cold, obviously. But it's really still not meeting its value at £14.99
Shocking, absolutely shocking what I am reading about this. I was genuinely looking forward to this like most because of it being a childhood classic. This will keep dropping and dropping in price.

This. Fantastic kart racer. 360 BC game, so you should be able to pick it up for peanuts.

I would wait til this drops to less than a tenner. Or hold out til it's in the bargain bin.

Is it? what about trackmania? the 360 version of sonic racing? forza? mantis burn? riptide? etc........ They all have split screen with some up to 4 players?

Check out some of the games I quoted above that also have 4player split screen on xbone. closest to micro machines is probably mantis burn (overhead car racing).

Crash is worth the extra money IMO. thoroughly enjoying it at the moment and its one the other half quite enjoys as well rather than "all those bloody shooting games your play"

I bought this a while back for £13 which isn't exactly peanuts but worth every penny!
Do not buy this game. The fact they released this on consoles is an insult.
my brother bought the game - i really didn't enjoy it at all - i remember the controls being a lot more arcade like on the of the mega drive and ps1

a good price for essentially a new game - but i thought it was pretty poor - (shame really as i was looking forward to it being released)

Someone beat me to a correction but Trackmania and Sonic have 4 player split screen. Someone else said Riptide, I'll second that. Great fun!

Get Sonic & Sega All Stars. It's absolutely brilliant.

But your still limited to free for all or elimination, no racing with mates like the old days, not even split screen either, they put no thought into the game at all, with of been better they partner with Nintendo to get the original on the Snes Mini!
Judging by early reviews, this will be a PS+ by the end of the year.

No. Worst decision I made this year was to pre-order this, and I'm a massive fan of the franchise - just a good job it was a straight swap for Rime at Game with their 30% extra on trade-ins deal.

Agreed. Also, Mantis Burn Racing is a good laugh, FWIW

Luckily I ordered from Amazon, didn't open as it was for the lads birthday on the 21st of this month! Read reviews, very dissapointed and so I have returned it for a credit and bought Crash B!!
