Back in the beginning of 2013 I was a young ambitious writer. I kept my writing skills up to par by occasionally writing some video game reviews. One of these games I played was Bioshock Infinite. And silly me wrote a review about the game after only finishing a quarter of it. Such a shame, because the game is a masterpiece! Well, I discovered that when I started playing it again last week. And boy what a great move that was.
We’re going back to the late year 2000 when top down racing game Micro Maniacs for the Sony Playstation, also known as Fox Kids.com Micro Maniacs Racing in North America, was released. With all eyes on the newly released Playstation 2, there were still some games, albethey quite overlooked, that came out for Sony’s predecessor. Micro Maniacs is such a game as it was a spinoff and spiritual successor of the Micro Machines series. Compared to the rest of the series this time the player controls one of the twelve characters instead of a miniature vehicle and together they run against each other in different spectacular household settings. So think about it as the Micro Machines games you all know so well, but then without the cars. Sounds fun, right?
