    I have only played this for an hour or so, but I can give this game at least a 7 for a few reasons. Amazing soundtrack; all the latest from the hardcore dance scene. Smooth gameplay and decent destructible system. It does say show your doors and hood flying off like in games such as Flatout or Burnout. But it does have what seems to be more realistic physics.

On the downside, it's very strange that there is these mariocart style power ups though. One minute I'm playing this street racing title, and the next I am 'shocked' by my opponent causing my controls to be inversed! Expand

    If other developers put half the effort that Rockstar do into psp titles then I'd be a very happy bunny.

    If you don't consider the long and quite often loading times (depending on how often you enter a race, otherwise the city is totally open), this is one of the best, if not THE BEST racing game for the PSP. The voice acting (yes, it has voice acting!) is at it's best and fun to hear now and then, and the soundtrack is top notch (but that's not surprising, being a Rockstar game).

All in all if you're looking for a challenging racer look no further. Owners of the previous Midnight Club for the PSP might have fewer reasons, though, because it is almost the same, only with two different cities. I have them both :P Expand

    A great game. No doubt! Loading times are pretty long, but not a problem if you are playing it off your memory stick.

    One of the better games for the PSP. A street racer with quite realistic physics and good graphics. If I recall correctly, the biggest problem were the long loading times, which kind of killed the point of a handheld, as the line would get to my turn before the game even loaded, so not a good pick up and play title in that regard.

    Midnight Club LA Remix is a masterpiece, although the graphics may be old since it is a new decade (2020), the graphic are great, the soundtrack, dialogue, and physics are really good, as well as the map which makes up for the other half with Tokyo.

  1. Impressively, the game takes full advantage of the PSP’s analogue stick giving it an incredibly responsive feel. You’re given a sense of total control over each vehicle and the subtle nuances between the cars and bikes are instantly apparent.

    A solid racing title that is partly held down by the PSP's hardware limitations. For example, it looks nice, but it can be hard to see stuff in the distance, like vehicles or potential shortcuts, and the city isn't as big as I would have liked it to be.
  3. A pure shot of adrenaline to the heart of the PSP. You need this racer!
