Summary: So the game over all has some nice graphics and the car races are nice but there are a lot of things to look out for in a bad way. When racing the game feels like you're not really driving, you don't really have to drive until a turn comes up, it feels like when doing drag in Need for Speed: Most Wanted which I don't really like to have on a full time drive.
Summary: First... I'm a huge racing fan... I've dragged, sprinted, circuited, and drifted my way through every Midnight Club and Need For Speed's that have been made. So I know just a little about how the racing worlds go and this game is just a huge dud. You first get a glimpse into this version of Midnight Club by showing up and buying a crappy car just like all the other street racing games.
Summary: Ok So I love racing games so I decide to check this one out. My first impression was that the graphics were good but the map is very limited. All you can do is drive through roads, highways, and alleys. About 10 buildings you can actually drive through the windows but once there the detail is horrible. Interiors of building are horribly pixlated and have NO detail. There is no exploration value at all.
Summary: I'm a big Midnight Club fan mainly because of DUB Edition, but since buying and playing Los Angeles I hope they go back to the drawing board. The selection of cars is horrible. There are only three sport bikes, no choppers, no trucks, and from what I've seen so far, the races are all the same. To make things worse it is insanely hard to win races. The AI racers are oblivious to traffic, but you, on the other hand, get nicked by a car and do a 360 spinout.
Conclusion: This game is great, and if u liked the last one then u will like this one. the graphics are good, car customizeastion is not very detaild, there is deffinitley too much traffic in the game and u cant reduce it like u could in the old midnight club, so a big dissapointment and u loose ur money as soon as u buy it.
Conclusion: Midnight Club is visually impressive, it's definitely the best of the entire series. If you enjoyed the previous versions of Midnight Club then this is a must purchase, the game is fast good looking and enjoyable, the handling of the cars is a joy to play and just adds to the fun. The down side to Midnight Club is its longevity, though it gives you loads of ways to customise your ride and gives you a huge city to drive around; all the races start to feel the same.
