    If you own Xbox Live and like racing games, MM3 is a no-brainer. In fact, if you like racing games at all, this is a reason to get an Xbox and Xbox Live.
  2. It might not take as much effort to overcome or offer as much content as arcade stalwarts "Midnight Club" and "Burnout," but neither game has the same depth online, and only hot seating Burnout's crash sections with a few friends can rival the Hollywood playground DICE has built here for sheer fun.
  3. Best of all, there is a surprisingly large number of people playing this game online, especially compared to other racing games like "Midnight Club II."
  4. Lives up to its hype, but we can't help but think how much better it would have been with a better choice of cities. [Aug 2003, p.84]
  5. What’s truly remarkable is that Digital Illusions has done a wonderful job retaining the essence of the previous Midtown Madness titles.

    Single Player is boring, but the Multiplayer is one of the best! But now there is no Xbox Live and we only can play in the Local Area Network.Single Player is boring, but the Multiplayer is one of the best!

    Infuriating trials, tedious repetition, and endlessly ramming yourself on the curb. Sound like fun? No, didn't think so. The checkpoint Infuriating trials, tedious repetition, and endlessly ramming yourself on the curb. Sound like fun? No, didn't think so. The checkpoint races are largely generic, and although finally completing them brings some satisfaction, its short lived. The racing really just isn't that fun. The work undercover mode adds a bit of variety, involving ferrying passengers about at crazy speeds, and working as a stunt driver, but again it just lack a certain something. It's like a compilation of imitations of other, better games. And there are points where you will get stuck over and over again. Its a nice idea to be able to explore Paris and Washington, but since the actual driving isn't much fun, and you can't run over civilians no matter how hard you try, you won't find much to occupy you, other than plunging into the river as you try to acquire all the hidden pain jobs in a desperate attempt to extend the meagre experience this game provides.
