Excerpt: Rockstar don’t only make Grand Theft Auto Games, you know. The first Midnight Club street racing game put you in the shoes of a bored cabbie who gets drawn into the exciting world of a club that races highly-tuned cars across moonlit cityscapes. The rules were quite simple: win and you win your opponent’s car.
Summary: Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition is a fantastic arcade racer and blows away the likes of Need for Speed and Juiced in the street racing stakes. There are lots of cars, a fantastic level of customisation and a great deal of races, modes and free-roaming to partake in. If you're looking for a decent street racing game then Midnight Club 3 is in pole position way out in front of its current competitors.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: If you like your driving loose and your cities expansive, Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition Remix should serve you well. There are dozens of cars to choose from and more ways to modify them, but the real treat is that once you're on the traffic-jammed streets of the now-four cities on both sides of the Pacific you'll only be concerned with the entertaining driving game under your thumbs.
Excerpt: Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition is the latest street racing game to hit consoles. The rise in popularity of modified vehicles - obviously helped by 'MTV's Pimp My Ride' - has made everyone aware of the world of custom tune-ups, and videogame publishers have made the most of it. Much like EA's Need for Speed Underground 2, MC3 lets you roam open cities, upgrade numerous high-performance vehicles and take on other car tuning enthusiasts.
Excerpt: Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition Remix is the budget re-release of 2005's Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition. Rather than simply hitting store shelves at a more attractive price, Remix actually includes all new content that wasn't found in the original release. New to this version is the city of Tokyo, plus more custom rides (cars) and additional tunes for the soundtrack.
