  • Summary: Enter Pimp City, where bling is king, and style is everything. On these streets, if your car isn't fully pimped out, you'd be better off walking. You and Xzibit will take on the challenge of hooking up your homies, and transforming their hoopties, buckets and beaters into the hottest whips on the street, while redlining through the highways and alleyways of Pimp City. You choose the mods, you choose the route, but pimpin' ain't easy. It will take speed and style to hook them up. Do you have what it takes to Pimp Their Ride? Xzibit will guide you through every stage of the pimping process - true Xzibit hilarity with lines and voice recording from Xzibit himself. Authentic people, broken rides - each mission will feature a person who truly needs their ride (and their life) pimped. Outrageous car modifications not for your typical car. Intense redline street racing through the city's 'hoods to create the most pimped out ride. New School meets Old School - an MTV generation focus in delivery of art, music and sound, featuring Zxibit's latest hip-hop tracks, and retro whips in need of modern bling. 5 unique boroughs , all free roam envorinments for the ultimate combination of racing and pimping. 16 vehicles in all - one for each of the 15 "customers" plus Xzibit's own high-rolling feature ride. Over 15 suppliers per borough and 100s of parts, from tires and rims to bumpin' subwofer systems and high-def display panels. So many parts, so many combinations, so much replayability.

  1. Whereas the show, Pimp My Ride, may be fun, the game is not. It gets close in the presentation but it fails miserably where it counts, in the gameplay.
  2. No amount of Xzibit influence or ride pimpage can save Pimp My Ride from its god-awful minigames and lousy driving mechanics.
  3. A collection of mini-games and a couple of dreadful driving sections. Just watch the show and play "Need For Speed Carbon." [May 2007, p.82]
  4. If you must play Pimp My Ride, try the 360 version. Play this version and you’ll put yourself through a lot of unnecessary frustration.
  5. I honestly have to say that I had fun with this game just because the gameplay is so outrageously bad.
  6. Curiously, the real stars of the show - the blokes at West Coast Customs - aren't here. Instead, you drive around the fictional city in unresponsive cars. [May 2007, p.78]

    The best part of Pimp My Ride is the link to Xzibit's Myspace page printed on the back of the box, thanks to X-to-the-Z's carefully selected friends list.

    The game would probably have been better if someone else would have made this game.....the gameplay is horrible...though pimpin' out the car is kinda of fun...the game overall sucks...you do the same thing over and over again..i personally think you shouldn't buy this and just rent it..its a quick beat and it will get quite boring..so its a waste of $40.
