The original Pimp my Ride was plagued with tons of unnecessary mini games, such as "ghost ride da whip" (dancing outside your car whilst it drives) and "flossing da honeys" (driving by some ladies to get their reaction to your pimped-out "whip"). Luckily, most of that stuff has been stripped out of the game, as have Xzibit and the bright idea of earning money by damaging your vehicle. For me, these exclusions are all for the better. It seems that this game is much less 'based' on the show "Pimp my Ride" and more 'inspired' by it, which gives it more room to be itself."
