"Midnight Club: Los Angeles is a great racing game with just a few little sore spots. The cars handle believably, Los Angeles is a blast to drive around in, and the GPS menu is amazing. Earning enough reputation to unlock parts for purchase is a good system in theory, but the punishing AI serves to frustrate a bit, and it gets even more frustrating the further into the game you get. Thankfully the online multiplayer is great and fair, since a skilled player can actually pull ahead of the pack and a minor mistake doesn't guarantee a loss. Fans of street racing are certain to have a great time speeding around Los Angeles, but don't expect to come in first right off the bat."
