Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition
28 May 2006
Conclusion: Overall, this game is just easily rated as awesome. It has the style, and the gameplay of a true great racing game. If you stand Need for Speed: Underground 2 up to this game, I would say this game offers more of what you would want from an arcade racer. Not everybody will feel the same, but this is just what I feel. In any case, you can't go wrong with this game. Also nice to know that both PS2 and Xbox versions can be played online. Buy or rent?
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: 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.
Excerpt: Let's get one thing straight here. I'm a gamer. My idea of an exciting Saturday night is a play-through of Doom on Nightmare skill level. And that's why I don't know a thing about illegal street racing; pretty much my entire mental landscape about it comes from movies and the occasional "Low Rider" magazine that my roommate lends me.
Conclusion: want to save your money because customizing the exterior of your vehicle has no discernable affect on your ability to win races. Although I admittedly went crazy customizing my first car, I would recommend hanging on to your cash so that you can buy your car(s) of choice later on. There are well over 60 vehicles to drive but it’s almost a guarantee your ride will wind up being a reflection of your personality.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: You don't have to be a die-hard motorist to enjoy Midnight Club 3's fantastic speed and irresistible playability, but if you are one you'll appreciate it all the more. Another triumph from Rockstar, and a game which others in the street-racing genre should aspire to.
Conclusion: The one thing I think I have agreed upon through all three of these games is that they all have been extremely fun to play. Midnight Club has both an extremely fun career mode as well as online mode, which really kept me busy for quite sometime. One of the biggest reasons this game was so much fun was because of how fast the game moved and how well it handled at those high speeds.
Summary: Fans of the franchise will find a lot to like about Midnight Club 3. And those who have never experienced the series would do well to give this entry a try.
Pros: High-energy arcade racing that's never boring, A superdeep career mode, complete with three full cities to race through, Excellent online play, Great visuals, including a dizzying sense of speed, More than 60 licensed cars and a ton of ways to customize them, More than 60 licensed cars and a ton of ways to customize them
Cons: Occasionally serious frame rate problems, especially on the PS2, Some of the arcade mode games just aren't all that great, Voice acting is still pretty hammy; thankfully, there isn't a lot of it
Excerpt: Rockstar Games has once again pushed out a stellar title, better known as Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition. How many series can you remember that progressively get better with each installment? Not many and that is a guarantee. Improving on all the issues of the previous title, alongside the addition of a plethora of licensed vehicles, damage modeling, brand-new multiplayer modes and three fresh cities to cruise through, are but a few of the highlights of the new...
