Excerpt: Like the other Midnight Clubs I have played, this game is similar, city wise that is. You start off in the big city of San Diego, eventually unlocking a moving garage which in turn opens up Detroit and Atlanta.
Pros: Very fun and fast-action racing game, with fairly good graphics and physics.
Cons: Loading times can be unbearable (upward of 60 second waits)
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.
Excerpt: Fans of DUB Magazine will have already picked up their copy of Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition for their love of the brand, but let me say for the record that Midnight Club 3 needs DUB about as much as I need a date with Lady Saw. That came out wrong, I think.
Summary: Parents need to know that this is a highly entertaining racing game, though some parents may feel it's materialistic and glamorizes street races. You won't find any billboards flashing sponsor logos, and all manufacturers' logos are subtle, but cars from top auto manufacturers are used in the game.
Excerpt: There have been a plethora of racers released for the PSP in its short lifetime, all of them portable versions of successful franchises. It’s not too surprising then that Rockstar has now entered the race by bringing its acclaimed Midnight Club series to the PSP with Midnight Club 3 DUB edition...
Excerpt: Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition from Rockstar arrived on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox earlier this year and quickly became the No.1 street racing game around. With blazing speed, online play, customisable vehicles and a pumping soundtrack it left its rivals in the dust.
Summary: Rockstar Games' excellent Midnight Club 3:
Dub Edition hits the Sony PSP in fine style with a near console quality release
with plenty of options including extensive customization options, dozens of race
modes, online wi-fi play and sterling visuals.
Excerpt: When I first put this
game in my PSP drive, I was greeted by a rather long load screen.
Knowing how Rockstar does things, I assumed this would be one of the
few, intolerably long load times throughout the entire game...that's
how they do it.
