Conclusion: Und auch das digitale Abbild von Xzibit ist in Ordnung. Für den Sound ist der Rapper selbst zuständig, was für Laune sorgt, sofern der Gamer auf diese Art von Mucke steht. Diese zwei Mini-Highlights haben aber keine Chance gegen die geballte Ladung von Gameplay-Nachlässigkeiten.
Summary: Based on the titular car-customization MTV show starring the self-proclaimed Mr. Black Bruce Willis himself, Xzibit, Pimp My Ride is a failure, primarily because it can't decide what it wants to be: Is it a driving game? Is it a series of awful driving minigames? Is it a car customization sim? Is it an unholy crossbreeding of all of the above? The answer is yes to that last one.
Pros: Xzibit is in it, decent, if slightly short roster of hip-hop songs
Cons: Constant repetition of the same boring minigames quickly turns the game into a grind, driving mechanics are overly loose and sloppy, the actual ride-pimping process borders on thoughtless busywork, awful voice acting from the customers, it's a short single-player-only game with no replay value
Summary: The popular MTV show Pimp My Ride has been turned into a not so popular game. For anyone that has not watched the TV series, it simply involves finding teenagers that drive what can best be described as scrap metal and turning it into something pimp. Making a car “pimp” involves adding every over the top feature imaginable, from massive spoilers, spinning wheel rims, glittering car paint or even a hot tub on the roof.
Pros: Moderately good graphics, Easy achievements, A good track list
Cons: Horrific, repetitive gameplay, No replay value whatsoever, It is just plain bad
Summary: Sports from across the pond are never as big as the likes of football, tennis or snooker over here in England. American football hasn’t took off, neither has basketball, baseball or ice hockey. But, EA always decide to release titles on sports from America over here in Europe, and one sport I’ve never seen any enjoyment in whatsoever is NASCAR. Sure it’s fast and furious, but what’s so fun about watching 40+ cars speeding around an oval racetrack at over 100mph?
Pros: Good fun for a few hours, Addictive soundtrack, Some great crashes
Cons: It won't appeal to non-NASCAR fans for long, Shoddy car visuals, Slow down problems
Excerpt: Peut-être connaissez-vous l'émission de télévision américaine répondant au nom de Pimp My Ride. Animée par Xzibit, celle-ci propose à de jeunes conducteurs en manque de moyens de rénover et de tuner leurs véhicules délabrés en y ajoutant tout un tas de gadgets utiles à leur vie de tous les jours.
