Midnight Club: Los Angeles
Good, but buy complete edition
This game is by far my favorite racing game of all time. It's open world racing with limitless car customization, a good world to race in, and a great soundtrack that stays loyal to the west side. You can customize every aspect of your car from performance to interior and exterior mods which is really a treat. One thing though, this is the regular MCLA, what you want to get is MCLA: Complete Edition which comes with the DLC released some time later. Usually I don't ever buy DLC but what comes with complete Edition is well worth it. The South Central area is open along with the South Central Garage, South Central Rims, and several cars like the Range Rover Sport and the low rider class which includes the Chevy Bel Air and the Riviera, etc. Overall, about 10 cars I would guess were added which is a big deal, at least for me. Overall, great game but make sure you get the Complete Edition. (It's the one with the Evo on the cover instead of a Mustang).
Straight up AWSOME game
OK,so this game can do like everything.I don't have an X Box,but i have played at my friends house and it's awesome.Best graphics I've seen ever.Being a total fan of street racing games,I love this one.First,it has really good graphics.You can see every detail in the game like the crack in the ground.Second,the cars are awesome,like real cars like camaros,mustangs,lamburguinis,and a lot more.plus,you can customize the cars.And after, you can race in the funnest races.Plus,the sound is great.You can perfectly hear the rubber burning from power sliding.The one bad thing is that it has no drag or drift races.But it is a great game overall.I recommend any1 that lover street racing games like me to get it,and if you don't you will start to,because this game changes the term "illegal racing" for ever.
The game is not at all what i expected!
I had some hi expectations for this game but after playing the need for speeds and really getting in to them this game has nothing at all on them. They tried making it realistic but the parts of the game they tried making realistic are a waste of time. You have to constantly go get your car fixed at a shop or you could blow the engine while in the middle of the race. The story line is horrible. It starts out talking to a couple of guys and then the next thing you know you are just racing for no reason. While you have a set way point to go and find someone, your stupid cell phone pops up on your mini map constantly and then you can't see where you are going to get to your way point. Cops arrest you real quick if you hit a curb and slow your car down your arrested and there goes your money and trust me you don't get a whole lot of money, takes for ever. I strongly advise you not to buy the game maybe just rent it. I have never wrote a review before but this game really needed one!!
What a GREAT game!
I have been playing Midnight Club ever since it was out way back when, on the PS2 and regular Xbox. I have always enjoyed it thoroughly. So when I heard of the new addition to the franchise, I went to pick up a copy, and wow, Midnight Club LA is absolutely amazing. The graphics are insane - if you happen to think for just a moment that what you're playing is real, the game might just fool you into believing it! The races are intense and will have you on the edge of your seat, and even nervous at times. The story line is good and the cars in this game are so cool!! (Especially the Challenger and Camaro concepts!) I do agree with the last post, however, in that the racing is quite monotonous. You need to love challenging street racing games to fully enjoy this one. All-in-all a wonderful game! I definitely recommend this to anybody who is even remotely considering playing a racing game - this one is the best so far! And oh yea, good luck getting away from the cops...
Good & Bad
I purchased this game because I wanted a new racing game for the 360. It has its ups and downs. As nice as this game may look, they are many little things that kind of ruin the game. The first is how when accelerating (after being still) the car hesitates and slides. Another annoying thing is how you have to find your way to the finish line by passing through points (there isn't any sort of track to lead you). I understand that is how midnight club games are but it can be a real pain....especially when trying to concentrate on driving and dodging other vehicles and buildings. Midnight Club Los Angeles does have its good points. After winning races, you earn money and unlockables such as new cars and parts. There are numerous ways to customize your car that will keep your attention. Although customizing the interior of your car is kind of pointless, its very fun. I'm happy I have this game but it is definitely not worth its price tag of $**. As appealing it may seem, just resist and wait until its price is more affordable.
AWESOME RECOMMAND TO EVERYONE
I got this from my friend for free, and I have to say I freakin LOVE THIS GAME!!!! I mean who doesnt like Midnight Club LA? They have unique styles, like bumpers, hoods, and all etc of accesories you can put there.This game has another great thing that everyone might like in gaming experience. The graphics, with new generation console (PS3 and Xbox 360), They provide an awesome graphics to every game but especially in this car game, it sticks out alot. This game provide you more exciting and more realistic car game ever invented. I think this game deserves an 10 out 10 mainly because it is my first xbox 360 car game ever played, and awesome gameplay that shows you the realistic feeling of this game. Also what I like about this game is that you can actually do anything with this car game, you can drive around the city with real posters like bestbuy and circuit city etc, and realistic gameplay that provides you the excitement that everyone enjoys.
I preorder this game maybe 3 months before it even came out and am not afarid to say it is a great game. if your looking for a racing game thats good on the streets dont get NFS underground. get mcla. this game is fun, addicting, a bit challenging and when there are cut screens its very funny. car customization. i knw that this game was all about the customization. and it was good u could customize everything. from paint and size or ur vinyle to the engine. and everything in between. the only bad thing about this whole game is.........when u get the south central maps u only get 1 suv supposly there is 2 but its the same car only one has a supercharger which is pointless because the other one without the supercharge is faster. but everything else is great and i hope this review helps
A really Good Game
Even though I haven't goten really far in the game, I still think it's fun. There is pretty much limitless customization that is if you have a good budget in the game. After a while I did get bored of this game once but when I picked up and played the game again a few months after i stopped playing it, I noticed how fun the game actually was. So i think you should let this game grow on you and not play it every day or you may get bored of it.
As you can see from the title, I would say this game is absolutly horrible, I wouldn't even say you would rent this. For one, they way overdid the AI and you can barley win any match, whether you have a motorcycle or a car, you'll still most likely lose. Another thing is, you lose control of the car for really anything, if you hit a car at like 50Mph, you'll most likely go spinning out of control and eventually lose the race. (As if you wouldn't all ready.) This is one game you should not waste $60.00 on, unless you like being frustrated and have a bad sence in racing games. And I forgot to mention, the online, really the same as single player, races with other people, just as hard. (Obviosly) The cars and the performance parts are just way to slow. And it takes forever to unlock stuff. And the game is also very reppitative and tracks get very boring. To make a long story short, the game is just a waste of good money, plain and simple.
If you like cars BUY this game
OK so if you are into the racing games, this is a must have, not only because it looks and plays fantastic, but because the "replyability" and the reward for doing so is great, there are tons of races and the city looks and feels like LA, plus the south central dlc is free. There are only 2 things I didn't like about this game, the fact that the city even with the dlc, the city still feels small (to me), LA is a massive metropolis and the map on this game barely scratches some of it, second, is that there are not a lot of cars, I was one of the lucky guys who downloaded the 2 car packs that got pulled. But even then still feels like there are a lot of tuners exotics and muscles missing. Other than that there are enough cars and races to keep you entertain for a while.Buy this game or you will be missing out on a great racing arcade game.
