Not for me

Summary: My mistake for expecting too much out of this game. I am into more SIM style racing games so this game really isn't aimed at me. If you like arcade style "smash'm up" type of games. This may be for you.
Summary: This game made me want to throw my controller into a wall. I thought GT5P was frustrating with the online crashers but this beat it by a long shot. Computers set you up for crashes constantly, the 3rd person view when crashed will make your car do the impossible when trying to recover.
Summary: When I played this game for the first two weeks I was absolutely smitten. What a BRILLIANT game! I was very impressed by my great purchase. However, as I progressed and my bike and car got faster the game started giving up and I struggled with terrible graphical errors.
Summary: Racing game fans should boycott this game. Elastic band ai like this should never pass any type of gameplay testing. It's a shame because the graphics and car handling are decent. If you don't have live, this is probably the worst racing game you could pick on the system.
Summary: Believe me I really wanted to enjoy this game but just couldn't. That is the summing up in one sentence, games are made to enable people to enjoy themselves and I am afraid this game fails on most levels. Sure the graphics are very impressive I will give them that but the gameplay is awful.
Summary: The graphics are okay, and the amount and range of cars is very good. However, the gameplay is unrealistic, with hardly any damage and you can drive into pretty much anything and be able to carry on driving having only slowed down slightly. You use L2 and R2 for acclerate and brake..
Excerpt: This is a review based on only about 30 minutes play of the game, so it may not be accurate. However, there is a reason I only played it that long. My first experience of Midnight Club when the series began was a bad one and I have never been interested in playing another one since.
This game has a few good points but many bad. You should avoid it!!

Excerpt: Midnight club Los Angeles should not be taken as a realistic driving experience but more of an arcade simulation. Races have an over-the-top go go feel, as opposed to the realistic handling of games like Race Driver:Grid. The story line is rubbish as basically there isn't really one.
