Summary: Honestly, I was psyched when I heard this game was coming out. But when I got it, It wasn't that great at all. I mean, It was O.K. at the time, maybe for about a few days to a week, but it really could have been better. The graphics were terrible for the time it was made. (Look at Midnight Club 3, Need For Speed Pro Street, Need For Speed Underground, etc) Also the animations were poor, the driving was a bit bad as I remember, and it didn't have any lasting appeal.
Summary: What is this?, I remember to the perfection the TV Show Pimp My Ride, and I never have the idea that someone can do a game, but sorprise Activision do a game of the TV Show, and what happen? Any good, the graphics are horrible, the cars are the only good in this title, the controls are strange, the gameplay is strange, the music is good, but the music and cars not be much for save this thing, that is a horrible form to kill the show.
Summary: This game has been looked at as bad and has been compared to the show and to racing games like midnight club. It isn't even a racing game so don't compare. It is an ok game with some kind of fun parts. It is a repeat of mini games but they aren't bad mini games. I got this game cheap so I think it is worth it. It is a good edition to the Ps2 collection. It is a game to just chill with and play when your bored.
Summary: Worst game ever. When I got it, I was thinking it would be like the show. But, it's not. You get to drive around a car, doing things to earn money, but only have 3 choices of making it. Then, when you make enough, you get to drive around upgrading the car. Oh, did I mention you're on a time limit? This game is HORRIBLE. I don't recommend this game. Don't waste your money like I did!
Summary: first of all i was expecting this game to be like the show,but its not you have to ride around and earn cash to supposedly fix someones car,but u can only do like do 2 things to it!!!,and after that u do the same thing over again and again!!its just a terrible game,the show is alot better!,save ur money and get midnight club 3 dub edition its aloooot better!
Excerpt: "Pimp my ride ps2 I love watching pimp my ride and films like 2 fast 2 furious. It is because I love custom cars, watching them being modified and changing through their stages. I don't just like them because of their performance I love the way they look. I was going through a game shop and saw this on the shelf. I was amazed I never new it was released, an amazing program and made into a hopefully an amazing game. I got the game in the morning ...
Pros: addictive, fun
Cons: limited ways of getting money, ends up at the back of your shelf
Excerpt: "...the glorious metropolis known as Pimp City. The residents of Pimp City like to drive pimped-out rides. So, what's an up-and-coming car-customization nerd like you to do when tasked with making the unpimped rides of the town's more hapless citizens into full-on works of pimp-flavored art ... there are loads of mini games in this game when all the show is about is customizing cars where in it does it have mini games ???? ...
Excerpt: Not a bad game to be honest. Ok so the graphics aint to much to yell about but the challenges aint to bad. You choose who's ride you want to "pimp" (make sure you listen and read what they want done & what they do e.g. music producer, actor etc...) You drive around earning money then once you've got the amount you need to do the ride up you have to do up the car by driving to shops in a certain amount of time.
