If you are the fan f street racing you must’ve already played some of the Midnight Club games. If not there’s a good reason to start. The main character of our article today is no other than Midnight Club Series, the racing in an open world with a well-thought atmosphere. Let’s come through the game titles, while waiting for the new Midnight Club PS4.
It was the first part of the series which had quite positive reviews. Around two millions of copies have been sold all over the world. This part was focused on competitive racing. The game includes import scenes which you could’ve seen in Fast and Furious movie. The game was made for PS2 and Game Boy Advance.
The game tells us a story about street racers known as Midnight Club. They customize their cars to get respect and fame. You play as a cab driver who learns more about these racers. You start your career in a typical taxi and as the story goes on you progress through the game getting better cars.
The game was a pioneer of open world racings. You could visit such cities as New York and London with their landmarks.
The main goal of the game was achieving checkpoints. There’s an arrow directing you throughout the story. The racing makes it possible to drive over such areas as escalators, roofs, railways and so on which is a fun. The car damage is also indicated so your vehicle can explode or stall. The cars resemble real-life models with slight changes.
Among the city prototypes you can visit areas close to Los Angeles, Paris, and Tokyo.
This time you’re guided by a mechanic who helps you on your way to racing success. You visit different cities where you’re supposed to compete. The whole story is quite predictable.
The new thing about the game was an opportunity to customize vehicles. You can modify their exterior and performance. Wining the races you get more options to customize cars. The list of races includes:
- Ordered races
- Circuit races
- Unordered races
- Autocross races
- Track and frenzy events
The game received generally positive reviews. It was developed for Xbox, PS2 and PS Portable.
In this story you play as Judas who builds up his reputation. The new features which are really cool include day-to-night cycle and weather changes. As a result the game is more realistic because cars can slide and get more damage. The amount of traffic also depends on day and night.
This is the longest part of the series which includes:
- Series races
- Pink slip races
- Freeway races
Police are also here.
Once again this part of the game was highly praised by critics.
