Excerpt: Midnight Club II is a game of street racing that lets you enjoy everything that is fun and exciting about the highly illegal sport without any of the potentially deadly consequences. You get the opportunity to race a car at high speeds through the crowded streets of LA, Paris, and Tokyo, dodging traffic and pedestrians while avoiding the police.
Excerpt: For those who don’t own both systems (and thus, should have read my review of the PS2 version), here is the 411. The majority of Midnight Club 2 takes place offline, with the Career Mode starting with a clunker of a car and only the desire to win keeping you from staying home.

Excerpt: I was in a game shop at one point when they had Midnight Club 2 playing on the PlayStation 2 kiosk. I spent a good amount of time just trying to run pedestrians over. I vowed that I would purchase it when it came out for Xbox, and like George Washington, I never tell a lie. However, that’s were the similarities between the two of us end, because I brush my teeth regularly and he had false teeth because the people back in the day didn’t have dental hygiene.
Conclusion: better cars can be unlocked. Once starting out, and before every mission, you are told to find another street racer and challenge them to race. Once they’ve noticed you, you’re told to follow them to a given point to start the race. Almost every single competition in the game is done through a series of checkpoints.
