I was surprisingly disappointed. The trailer for the game only shows the cg scenes but the game itself has not so great graphics. It really looks like it has ps2 graphics. The game play is fun but can get boring fast after re-doing the same races over and over and it gets old and not as fun. Game is horrible right from the start when you get a slow car but gets only a tad bit better as you get further in the game with better parts and better cars. Well lets see if Need for Speed Undercover does any better then this game. I am hoping so. But for not this game is only worth a rent and not worth spending $60 worth. It's worth $30 in my opinion.
This game is good graphic wise and is by far most the best Midnight Club ever. You have cop chases and street races all over Los Angelas. You start out with a lower class car and work your way up to the ferrari's and Audi's. I got this game on the 28 and wow I got addicted right away. The environment is very well put together, the time changes it gets dark and light throughout the game and you can change it in the pause menu. You make friends throughout the game and earn yourself a reputation. It is very rewording to earn trophies and boost your trophy score. Now It is a free open world game and LA is huge. You can drive for a long time and still not get to your destination in 5 minutes, unless it's close. Now the world is not as big as Test Drive Unlimited, but you will find yourself addicted. I was driving around and I saw all these stores that exist, such as BestBuy. I even saw Coffee Bean, and my dad laughed because he goes there every morning. Overall this game is a great racing game and open world game, I own a Xbox 360 and I rally love earning achievements, and because this game has trophies it is one your going to want to keep for a long time.

first of all let me say that this game is an improvement from mc3 dub edition not saying its a good game just better i played the game for two days it wasn't that hard to get money there is just certain races you have to go for (pink slip) other than that the game goes down hill in terms of story and lack of real races in the end i would probably rent the game instead of buying
