If you've never play MC3 before, or if you're the best MC3 player in the world, you owe it to yourself to snag Remix, pimp out some rides, earn some phat cash and experience one of the best racers for the PlayStation 2. It's really that simple.
The complete MC 3 **** the DUB edition was not enough to satisfy you, then the remix includes a who;le lot more content, plus there is Tokyo city to drive around in. MC3 was by far the better game than the first two. It had better cars, a more tolerable set of characters, and the customization was easy to get to grips with and vast.
Best racing game of all time. It has almost everything you could want from a game like this. Fantastic vehicle list, great customization, banger soundtrack, fun and frantic gameplay, multiple cities to race in, special power ups to spice up gameplay, the game often encourages you to try out new vehicles, and the best arcade mode in any racing game hands down. A must play title.
This game generally had some problems. To start off, optional races in the game have ridiculously easy opponents that drive at 75 mph! Also, the games traffic is limited and the cops chase you for 5 seconds before they give up. Graphics and damage is sloppy, but I liked some parts despite the flaws. The handling is easy to maneuver, if too fast paced with faster cars. There are abundant vehicle and customization options, and four cities, San Diego, Detroit, Atlanta, and now Tokyo. Sandbox is small but the ultimate playground. I also liked the sound effects and the cutscene dialogue and graphics. Also, I pretty much turned addicted to this somehow. However, I gave this a six because of several bad design choices.
This game is absolute nightmare in case of game-play and absolute masterpiece at car customization. After at least 15 retries all the wonderful music and amazing cars will annoys you so strong that you never ever notice how good they are. AI is nightmare. Classic Rockstar Games insane cops. But instead of cops they are racers! What about cops? Just double berserk behavior of racers and you got cops. Awful progress barriers on top of that. Frustration simulator '06.
If you ever wanted to know what garbage played like then you should definitely try this piece of trash out. Major blessings to everyone that reads this rant until the end:
The worst case of rubberband AI? Check. I also love what I call the surprise nitro. Well surprise nitro is basically when the enemies already used nitro like 20 times while you're only allowed 2-3 or if you're driving behind an enemy, you can charge up your nitro for a free use, you're currently on the first spot right in front of the finish line and then the enemy uses nitro AGAIN to steal the victory, making you repeat some of the worst courses in racing game history.
Talking about the AI and unfairness of it. Imagine this: you're driving a course in a city filled up with traffic to the brim, being the human that you are, you will inadvertently crash into some traffic cars from time to time. The enemy? Well they're basically the Michael Schumachers of street racing. 0 errors whatsoever, they will slow down whenever you're last, just to give you the illusion of a winning chance but other than that, they drive flawlessly. Every lane is filled up with multiple cars due to traffic? Perfectly dodged. A bus or a truck riding through a crossing and blocking off your path? Perfectly dodged.
Speaking about the traffic. You're gonna love it. Whenever you're driving in a lane, out of f*cking nowhere a car decides to turn into exactly that lane and make you crash.
You wanna drift around the corner? Well 9 times out of 10 there's gonna be some car or truck awaiting you, just for you to crash in
Oh you're first and driving through a crossing? Surprise bus that appears at the perfect time just for you and decides to block off the ENTIRE street, just for you to crash
Cops: Now this might be the biggest bs of the game. So the premise is that the game is about street racing, right? And street racing involves multiple contenders, roundabout 6-8, right? Well not to the cops. They will blatantly ignore any of your enemies and ONLY chase and crash into you. You have no idea how much these POS caused me a race because they either try to slam you, block off a corner or drive in front of you, so you get slowed down. Whoever made the AI for them - I hope you burn in hell.
Respawning: This is the most amazing part of the game. So if you're ever crashing into a building or a getting flipped over, guess where the game respawns you? No, not on the street, that would actually make this a good game ike NFS Underground. No, no, no, this game respawns you right at the f*cking wall of the building. So from there you need to reverse and THEN get back in the lane. It makes you lose a couple of valuable seconds, so have fun catching up to the best AI in existence
Story: There is none. You get a couple of cutscenes with the most cliched characters ever. A mechanic mexican whose every second word is ese? Check.
Music: Man out of all the good hip hop tracks that you could've put in, Rockstar puts in some of the biggest garbage songs of all time, including artists that never stood the test of time when you'll hear the songs, you'll know why. The only question that always accompanies me while listening to the music is: Who on god's green earth thought to themself, Man this is some really good music to be street racing to ?!?! How can games like Need for Speed Underground/ Most Wanted or Burnout 3 hit the note perfectly (pun intended) but this game just flat out butchers it.
In conclusion: Do yourself a favor, save your nerves and stay the f away from this steamin' pile of garbage that reeks of the most disgusting trash you've ever touched.
To Rockstar: I'm so glad this franchise is dead.
