Midnight Club: Los Angeles is a very good addition to the open-ended racing genre. While a little down on variety, totally lacking in the story department and housing an erratically frustrating difficulty, the whole aspect of keeping the player in the game has come off extremely well. The menus are easy to navigate once you get the hang of them and you're pretty much able to always be playing the game. Furthermore, the races are fast and will keep you at the edge of your seat and players who want to can customise their rides, both in terms of performance and aesthetics. Racing is unlikely to change to much, but the ease of accessing it in Midnight Club: Los Angeles is much appreciated.
