Jolt: "Essentially Midnight Club has made a move on its rival's territory, and it's actually a better game for it. Worryingly, though, there's been some talk of MC:LA being a bit difficult. Now I'm a big fan of the series – and Midtown Madness before it – but my racing skills aren't exactly finely honed. I take corners too fast, ram opponents from behind and leave a trail of trees and lampposts in my wake. Despite this fact, not many of the races and tournaments I entered were finished in a position other than first. That's not a boast, but a point that bears exploration, particularly when a lot of wins involved bad wipeouts and crappy positioning towards the final stretch."
