Midnight Club Los Angeles - Xbox 360

Updated on August 27, 2009

Just about everyone is familiar with the Xbox 360 from Microsoft. Well, maybe not everyone is very familiar with the Midnight Club series of games from RockStar Games. RockStar Games is the creator of the Midnight Club line and the famous Grand Theft Auto video games. The company seems to like making games where the players get to break the laws and run from the police. This makes for an extremely addicting and fun game that will provide hours of entertainment at a time for the gamer.

RockStar has released many Midnight Club games, the latest of which is Midnight Club Los Angeles. The previous games were Midnight Club 1 and 2, and the HUGELY popular Midnight Club 3 DUB Edtion. This takes the 3rd edition to the next level. The cars drive more realistically, the characters are much better, and the city is miles ahead in detail and complexity compared to Midnght Club 3 DUB Edition. There are dozens fewer loading screens which equal more racing time for you and your friends either sitting next to you, on Xbox Live, or by yourself.

Other racers talk to you while racing using T-Mobile cell phones. They usually make fun of you, but occasionally encourage you. Even if a jab is made at you, your character always seems to come up with a witty comeback that makes them shutup for a few minutes.

In Midnight Club 3, the cops only chase you if you are speeding during a race (but honestly, when are you not speeding in a race on these games?), but the police will chase you at any time wether you are racing or not. If you drive through the park or the mall, someone will call the cops, or if you run a red light where they can see you, they will pull you over. If you are speeding or driving recklessly, the police will chase you and if they ever do stop you, they will draw their guns on you and fine you according to how long the chase lasted. If you are caught running a red light, the HUD will say to pull over. If you follow their instuctions and do not try to get away (yet), the screen will switch to the dashboard camera on the police car - you know what I'm talking about, the one that has the time, date and is not the greatest quality - and the cop approaches your car. If you stay where you are, you will be fined $100 for a traffic violation. If you decide to speed off while the police man is approaching your slick ride, the man will quickly stumble back to his squad car and follow you in high-speed pursuit! This is a lot of fun. Then, while being chased, you listen to a police scanner with the officers and dispatch discussing your car, location, and how to stop you. It is funny to listen to sometimes. If you go fast enough, the police will eventually fall far enough behind you that you will lose them for good and you will earn REP, or reputation points. REP points are crucial to your social status in this game.

Ford cars are on the Midnight Club games for the first time. There are Ford vehicles such as new and old Mustangs and the GT.

The customisation of the cars in this game is through the roof. You can do so many things to make your car personal it's insane. Unlike previous MC games, you can make your own interior. Change the guages, steering wheel, seats and more!

There is more than enough to do in this game between racing opponents, running from the police, and customising your ride down to the color of the light in the stereo system. Overall, one of the BEST games I have ever had the pleasure of owning. Worth every penn you pay for it and more. At Best Buy they carry it for $39.99, and it should be $59.99 - at least. Don't wait, and buy this game!
