But the most impressive technical aspect of the latest Midnight Club is how well this massive world seamlessly serves its purpose as a hub for races. Upon entering the GPS mode, the game zooms out of your current location and gives you an overhead view of the city, showing which races are currently available and their respective difficulty levels. And then it zooms back down when you're ready to hit the streets. Obviously, this isn't a new idea...but it's an impressive take on open-world racing nonetheless."
