Quick, try and think of some things that have actually benefited from being shrunken down. Computer technology and White Castle burgers come to mind. But let's not count out Micro Machines, Hot Wheels' midget brother, which has endured years of success simply by keeping it tiny. And just when you thought the property couldn't get more miniscule, here comes Micro Machines V4 on the Nintendo DS to show you just how much you can fit in your pocket.
The Micro Machine's top-down, pick up and play formula has withstood the test of time, going back as far as the NES, and V4 revels in much of the same success of its predecessors. What you get here is a heavily scaled down version of what is already available on more powerful consoles. But fear not, because outside of some slight stuttering in the motion at times, very little is lost in the translation.
