    A perfect blend of arcade style action, mixing the best of Midnight Club 2, Midtown Madness, Need for Speed Underground and Burnout 3. With a combination like that, you really can't go wrong.
  2. Officially the king of the street racer gaming scene. No other title out there delivers this much speed, customization, or outright fun at all.
  3. In MC3 everything is real big. Customisation real big, vehicles real big, racing real big, online real big, adrenaline real big.
  4. DUB redlines on the gorgeous meter. Everything blurs and tunnels to help convey a giddy feeling of speed—and then you hit the nitrous.
  5. You've got blinding speed, and more than enough distinct cars to tinker with to push that insane speed even harder. [June 2005, p.57]
  6. Tuners can go crazy creating a fully customized garage, and pure race fans can get off on the sense of speed.
  7. There’s no question that DUB Edition can be pleasurable, especially in the multiplayer games, but the Career mode too often feels like graft. There are tournaments, one-off street races and ‘special’ events, but each individual race feels much the same as the last. [June 2005, p.92]

    What an incredibly fun game this still is. I have completed 100% of mc3de. I have remix as well,. This game was the best street racing gameWhat an incredibly fun game this still is. I have completed 100% of mc3de. I have remix as well,. This game was the best street racing game money could buy back in the day. Even better than nfs underground. The cars look amazing. The graphics were top notch for ps2 hardware. The soundtrack was catchy and fit perfectly with the atmosphere of the street racing seen. I'm keeping my ps2 for as long as possible. This will be a game that i will still play in the future again. Its almost a decade old too. Love it! Expand

    I know its a little late to be writing a review of a nearly 2 year game, but I HAVE to express my feelings about this game. Point Blank, I know its a little late to be writing a review of a nearly 2 year game, but I HAVE to express my feelings about this game. Point Blank, regardless of what system, if u don't have this game, you will never know how intense, engrossing, all-out spectacularly addictive games can get. The racing is fun and challenging, and the customization/tuning puts every other wanabe street racer to shame. The music is probably the best you'll ever hear in a videogame, and overall, it faster than any other game out there, to THIS day. This was my favorite game of 2005, and if you haven't taken on this rollercoaster yet, you're missing out on one of the funnest rides at the fair! Expand

    I am highly disappointed in Rockstar's version of a racing game. I found this game years ago and recently decided to play it. The cheats areI am highly disappointed in Rockstar's version of a racing game. I found this game years ago and recently decided to play it. The cheats are lousy and clustered up to be nothing more than 'Silly Cheats' that are rendered useless to the player. Rockstar had a great Rep with the gta's over the years as I thought I would find in this game. I finally won the Lamborghini but let down after discovering it was still the same game and no higher nos count on hud meter after that and no focus control. I found myself really winning at nothing and the most frustrating part was when it rains or snows, losing traction ,then having to go over and play other story modes to get out of rain or snow mode until I fell back into my comfort zone. Several attempts to make number one wins at finish line until comfortable with course. Lousy set up menus and options list. Limited options for car parts in garage, even after you've won millions and have the best car. This game may be fun for some but I found it too daunting and contentious. Too nerve racking in the negative sense and just plain boring after a while. If I want to sweat that hard I'll go to the gym Expand
