I have never participated in an illegal street race, nor have I played any of Rockstar Games' Midnight Club series which focus on street racing. Hell, I've never even seen The Fast and the Furious; apart from some foolish moving violations earned in my youth, I am a total greenhorn when it comes to street racing. Unfortunately, the denizens of Midnight Club: Los Angeles seem to have realized this, and what's worse, they seem to have taken it personally. Midnight Club: Los Angeles is a game which is extremely unkind to beginners, with a steep learning curve and a great deal of lengthy repetition in store for a below-average racer."
