Midnight Club: Los Angeles

The fourth installment in a popular series of racing games, which has been developed over the years by Rockstar San Diego. Contrary to the previous Midnight Club games (the player competed in many different cities around the world), this follow-up takes one to the titular city of angels. The developer recreated all the main districts of the metropolis, with a special emphasis placed on Hollywood. Street racing is again the core of the experience and the player is given an opportunity to control diverse cars. In the virtual garage, one will find both classic cars (above all, different versions of Ford Mustang) and modern-day rides, such as Mitsubishi Eclipse, Mazda RX-8, Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo or Lamborghini Murcielago. The available cars are accompanied by a few motorcycles, such as certain Kawasaki models. All the vehicles included can be customized, both visually and in order to improve their performances. Midnight Club: Los Angeles comes with high-quality visuals, which applies especially to polished car and bike models, as well as to diverse environment rich in detail. All of this is complemented by a day-night cycle.

Midnight Club: Los Angeles for PlayStation 3 is the fourth installment in a popular series of arcade racing games initiated on the PlayStation 2 console. The game was created by Rockstar San Diego and this latest follow-up is distinguished mainly by a larger emphasis placed on free roaming. Numerous improvements were also introduced into the visuals.

Mechanics

Contrary to the previous games belonging to the Midnight Club series (the player visited many different cities around the globe), this game offers only one map, though it is huge. The player is taken to the titular city of angels; the creators included all the main districts of LA, with a special emphasis placed on Hollywood. The player can explore the entire game world without limitations.

The Midnight Club series has been popular for inclusion of plenty licensed vehicles, and this game is not an exception. The list of available vehicles encompasses both classic muscle-cars (represented mainly by a lot of different variations on Ford Mustang, also from Shelby) and modern-day vehicles. In the latter case, the player can choose from cars belonging to such brands as Mitsubishi (Lancer, Eclipse, 3000GT), Saleen (S7 Twin-Turbo), Lamborghini (Gallardo, Murcielago) or Mazda (RX-8). The game also includes several motorcycles, such as certain Kawasaki models. All the included vehicles can be customized, which applies to both the visuals and performance (more expensive parts).

In Midnight Club: Los Angeles for PlayStation 3 the player races against other fans of cars and bikes, which includes an opportunity to participate in more prestigious tournaments. The game uses a day-night cycle, so one competes here both in daylight and at night. What is completely new in this installment, is an interior view similar to that in Test Drive Unlimited. The player can look around freely inside the car, but also change the camera position. The driving physics are rather arcady in this game.

Technical aspects

Midnight Club: Los Angeles for PlayStation 3 comes with high-quality visuals, which especially applies to car and bike models, though diverse environment rich in detail is worth noticing as well.
