  1. The greatest shame about Midnight Club: Street Racing however is just how repetitive it can become.
  2. If you’re looking for a fun, addictive arcade racer, where you can take devious shortcuts to get one over on your rivals, then look no further.
  3. While offering a decent helping of fun, the bland textures and ubiquitous gameplay make for a somewhat unexciting PS2 start.
  4. Unfortunately, while the game's premise is certainly intriguing, its fun is sorely limited due to a steep learning curve and lack of racing venues.
  5. A poor plot, which never makes you feel that you're doing anything other than playing an average videogame.

It's now available on the PS Store. For a game that was released in 2000, this game looks great. Races can, however, be a pain to beat, and this seem to carry over in each iteration of MC. If you want to see where it all began, or just want to collect all MC games, then buy this. I should warn you though, that customization-wise, it isn't deep as the later games. Full Review »
