"Overall, Midnight Club: Los Angeles is arguably the best entry into the series. Cars handle exceptionally well, the city is rendered beautifully, and there is a wide selection of music to accompany you while you're serving up beatdowns to opponents. While the difficult does provide a disparaging amount of frustration for some gamers, it's also a good motivator to keep you on your toes. Some gamers may find the small amount of cars available a turnoff, but there's so many positive aspects of the game that it's currently one of the best arcade racers available right now. The feeling of speed is alive and well. There's never been a better time to experience the streets of Los Angeles."
