    I don't always enjoy racing games that much. They're mostly the same thing over and over again. Sometimes there's a challenge, sometimes there isn't. But this game is fun as hell. Even the story is fun. Racing games shoudl be like this.

    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 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

    Without a doubt the best racing game I have ever played. The customization levels in this game are crazy, pretty much anything and everything can be customized. Furthermore the game play was good and the controls were easy to get use to. The graphics of it's time were epic. Everything about the story line was interesting. Best part was the music, all the songs hyped me up, that I had toWithout a doubt the best racing game I have ever played.

    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 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 afterI 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

  1. The incredible speed and freeform routes are the major high points. The tuning options are excellent, too. [July 05]

    An insanely fast, chaotic, and progressive racing game that betters the second with more accessible racing, without losing its competitive edge.
  3. DUB redlines on the gorgeous meter. Everything blurs and tunnels to help convey a giddy feeling of speed—and then you hit the nitrous.
