Game Gear Micro review — You might not need this, but I did

Promotional images use hands for a reason: the Micro is just that small

Size and form — a shocking replica

Pardon the dust, but here’s a pair of GG Micros and a larger-than-average bottle cap. Note that the bottle cap is in fact slightly larger than the screen.

Controls — wait, this works?!

Games: namely, not enough of them

It’s important to remember when you look at these screenshots that they’re many times the size of the Micro screen.
You can read this screenshot just fine right now, but things are different on a screen the size of a bottle cap

Battery: such a thing as “too faithful”

Final

Obsession level: Sega used the original designers of the Japanese GG box art
