Midnight Club LA is a Racing game available on the 360 PS3.
We have our reporters and community keeping an eye on Midnight Club: Los Angeles for you, and we'll keep you up to date with the latest developments as they happen.
Midnight Club LA offers a racing experience as compelling as Grand Theft Auto. This is real life car customising and racing done the Rockstar way. But be warned, videogames can have a profound influence on those playing it, no matter how grown up and sensible they may consider themselves to be.
My relationship with racing games is a strange one. On the one hand, I get a huge kick out of thrashing around as fast as possible with the world's gnarliest cars. On the other hand, my eyes glaze over as soon as the race is over and a game deposits you into the garage to tinker with a car's set up, giving you a startling array of components and completely foreign concepts like gear ratios and tyre pressures to mess around with.
Another long running series and another new racing game for PS3. Will it break new ground and make use of the Playstation's increased capabilities or is it another cash cow pushed out in the hope that no-one notices? As I slide the fresh copy of Midnight Club: Los Angeles into my PS3 I try to clear my mind of preconceptions and begin to play.
Now this is quite an interesting review to do immediately after the latest installment of Need for Speed: Undercover PS3 as they are both aimed the same market. You know, all those teen-aged lovers of 'The Fast and the Furious' films who wish they had a car better than the Citroen Saxo they own, to hang out down at Maccy D's on a Friday and wear their hats the wrong way around. Oh! and me - a slightly older boring bloke who wishes he was cool enough to hang out at Maccy D's in a Saxo. So another game aiming to fulfil all those boyracer (and no doubt girlracer) tendencies so many of us manage to hide under otherwise ordinary exteriors.
