  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. I honestly have to say that I had fun with this game just because the gameplay is so outrageously bad.
  3. No amount of Xzibit influence or ride pimpage can save Pimp My Ride from its god-awful minigames and lousy driving mechanics.
  4. It's not fun, and it drives so off course from the show that it should be embarrassed. Graphics are ugly, minigames are dull, and there just isn't any will to plow through this.
  5. It’s a grind that’s just not much fun to play, no matter how much ghost riding the whip takes place. Pimp My Ride falls a few rims shorts of a set.
  6. 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.

    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.
  8. 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]
  9. 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 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 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 its a waste of $40.
