Ok. I take back what I said in my Midnight Club review. This game sucks. The cars are good and the races are fine too. What is bad is the story which is kind of annoying and the open world. The open world and the environment belong on a PS2 game - not a PS3. I think Blackbox just used whatever they had from Most Wanted and made this game and it shows. Plus bugs - this game has so many bugs that I lost count. Not recommended.
Got this one used, but like new at a fraction of the price. My son was so pleased since he was not able to afford the new and scealed version at the video game store here in town. It is still one the prefered game in his collection.
