    The big new addition is Tokyo. Fortunately, the developers have made the city available by default right on the menu screen, so for those of you worried that you might have to play through the original three cities to get to the new stuff, worry not.
  2. The content on offer in Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition Remix is pretty great.
  3. The slight frame rate issues do grate, but Midnight Club 3 is so un-ashamedly arcade like - and refuses to even attempt to act like anything more – that it stands out as a true racing gem.
  4. Unless you're a seriously hardcore Midnight Club fan, the Remix isn't really worth buying if you've already got MC3.
  5. Definitely an advancement over the original release – not so much an improvement, mind you, just a bit more quantity at the same quality.
  6. In all, the new stuff adds more than 30 percent to the top of the already full-featured title. [May 2006, p.97]
  7. The new content and cheaper price make Remix the definitive version of Midnight Club 3, but there's not enough new to draw in those who already took the plunge last year.

    If you've never play MC3 before, or if you're the best MC3 player in the world, you owe it to yourself to snag Remix, pimp out some rides, earn some phat cash and experience one of the best racers for the PlayStation 2. It's really that simple.
  9. It all adds up to a breakneck racing experience that offers a lot of fun (especially when you consider the online modes) for a little cash.

    An insanely fast, choatic and progressive racing game that betters the second in the series with more accessible racing, without losing its competitive edge.
  11. Twenty quid for dozens of modifiable cars, 4 well realised cities and plenty of online and offline races is a good deal in anyone’s book, and especially ours.
  12. The Japanese capital, reintroduced from "Midnight Club 2," is vibrant and busily populated with smashable motors and obstacles. [May 2006, p.92]
  13. 75
    "Burnout 3: Takedown" aside, street racing doesn't come much finer.
  14. 85
    Brimming with things that will irritate the hell out of you... Better than the first version, and at half the price. [Issue#139, p.72]
  15. With its bargain price even people who aren't usually into racing games really have no reason to avoid REMIX. [May 2006, p.78]
  16. Still lagging far behind "Need for Speed," for modding and a fair stretch behind "Burnout" for sheer speed and crashiness, but for 20 quid you can't really go wrong. [May 2006, p.48]
  17. Driving around Tokyo is something that some Midnight Club gamers will have never achieved thanks to the challenge that was Midnight Club 2, so it's rather helpful of Rockstar to package the city into Remix for all to enjoy from the off.
  18. While anyone who already owns the first release might find the budget price too much to pay for one new city and a few new vehicles, newcomers will find over twenty hours of offline play, and an online mode that could be played for months.
  19. If you are looking for a masterpiece of racing as a genre, Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition Remix probably isn't quite it, but it's plenty close, with open-ended free play where you can choose what to do freely.

    Work of art.
    10/10. Genuinely one of the most fun games I have ever played. It's pleasingly somewhat old-school and really freakin' arcade-y.

    10/10. Genuinely one of the most fun games I have ever played. It's pleasingly somewhat old-school and really freakin' arcade-y. Great fun, good replay value (especially with the Tokyo bit), and the best in a pretty fantastic series, arguably one of the top games in its generation.

To start off, optional races in the game have ridiculously easy opponents that drive at 75 mph! Also, the games traffic is limited and the cops chase you for 5 seconds before they give up. Graphics and damage is sloppy, but I liked some parts despite the flaws. The handling is easy to maneuver, if too fast paced with faster cars. There are abundant vehicle and customization options, and four cities, San Diego, Detroit, Atlanta, and now Tokyo. Sandbox is small but the ultimate playground. I also liked the sound effects and the cutscene dialogue and graphics. Also, I pretty much turned addicted to this somehow. However, I gave this a six because of several bad design choices.
