WR: Midnight Club Los Angeles (PS3/Xbox 360)

gameusagi.com
15 March 2009
  • Excerpt: I’ve always been a big fan of the Midnight Club series, especially Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition on the Xbox and PS2, so when Midnight Club Los Angeles (MCLA), the franchise’s first title on a next generation console, was announced I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. The final product is a fine looking game with attitude and tons of customization, but sadly lacks in its most important department: race mechanics.
  • Pros: LA is a large race environment with excellent draw distances, Incredible sense of speed, good frame rate, Great selection of tunes, Nice engine effects, Good variation of races with nice interface, Fun online modes, Plenty to do and see, Fun and unique online features
  • Cons: Clean, sterile look is a visual step back from MC 3’s motion blurred flair, Corny voiceovers, Collisions are too frequent and unforgiving due to game’s high speeds, Computer AI is often extremely hard to defeat and always a step ahead of your vehicle upgrades and modifications, Frustrating gaming experience makes progress unrewarding and very tiresome (try winning back all the cars you lost in one of the game’s pink slip races, for instance)

Midnight Club: Los Angeles

Playstation Illustrated
10 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Racing games come in a few different flavors these days. There are arcade racers, kart racers, and simulation racers. Sometimes, a game comes along that tries to combine all of those standards into one nitrous-filled joyride. Midnight Club: Los Angeles is one such game. Midnight Club: Los Angeles is a very nice sight to behold. The entire city of Los Angeles was re-created with an extraordinary attention to detail.

Auracore MediaWorks

  • Summary: Rockstar brings Los Angeles to life, minus the smog.
  • Pros: Gorgeous graphics; excellent free-roaming experience on an expansive map; precise handling controls; highly customizable vehicles.
  • Cons: In-game opponents rarely make mistakes at any level; the generic plot takes a backseat to the racing; shaking camera effects add excitement but also add more head-on collisions.

  • Excerpt: If you've ever had the displeasure of driving in Los Angeles, you know there is nothing remotely fun about it. The folks over at Rockstar San Diego beg to differ, however -- at least as far as a videogame premise goes.

  • Conclusion: If you're looking for a good street racing title, then this is definitely one to consider. It's not perfect, but there are enough positives to put it neck and neck with some of its competition.

  • Summary: Midnight Club: Los Angeles isn't without a few problems, including a steep learning curve, unfair artificial intelligence and a lack of originality. However, that shouldn't keep you from having a great time as you race around one of the best looking recreations of Los Angeles I have ever seen! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.

Midnight Club: Los Angeles

Thunderbolt Games
13 November 2008
  • Excerpt: Besides their crowd-pleasing Grand Theft Auto moneymaker, Rockstar Games has plenty of games and franchises to dust off every now and then. Midnight Club , beginning life on the PS2, is an open-world game where players can take missions as part of their life of crime. Wait, doesn’t that sound familiar? The series takes the same sprawling approach to level design and game progression, but instead of mobsters and drug dealers, lets gamers mix with the street racing elite.
