GC08: MC: LA gameplay

In the middle of a rather empty Microsoft booth was a lone Midnight Club: Los Angeles, and we filmed this quite nice video of the game.

Pedestrians, yay! Game looks pretty good, but the car handling looks a little...errr...horrible?!
Commented on 2008-08-20 23:53:16
Car handing looks pretty much the same as MC3 to me. Not amazing, but playable.

Wow.

Another game on my buy list ¬¬

Impressive graphics and it looks like 60fps too!.
The sense of speed and the graphics in the in car view make the game almost look real. I think this game will be great fun.

Is the one who is playing using the d-pad? shocky left and right cornering makes me believe so.

Otherwise, looking good! i cant wait to see footage of motorcycles.

Sorry, this game isn't running at 60fps.

why is it that i cant get any sound in any of the gamersyde videos? drives me crazy. anyways game looks pretty beautiful and i really like the first person view. more sense of realism

was gonna say that it looks just like the letdown that was burnout paradise, but once it showed the in car view it really came into its own... a very pretty game, and makes you wish gta 4 had the helmet cam view...why it didnt (considering the focus was on realism) is anybodys guess.

Also glad to see the use of smoke.. hopefully you wont get lost as easily as you could in burnout. I hope theres a wide variety in scenery too.. thats the only trouble with taking tracks out of a racing game.

I liked all of the MC's so far. The capture the flag multiplayer games were great.

Off-topic, will you guys be able to capture some Bayonetta gameplay vids or is it forbidden like at E3?

Most videos from gaming conventions have no sound because it's mostly background noise.

Wow another racing game down the drain for me. What is up with these disgusting physics/controls in the arcade games?! At least GRID got the arcade thing right, i'm so sick of these next-gen NFS-lookin controls and handling, makes me puke out of disgust..

lol, your the first person i've known to prefare the shit fest that was GRiD to something like this. this doesnt pretend to be anything more then an arcade racer...hell, the fucking thing has powerups like a cart game. it is doing exactly what it set out to do, and its doing it well. GRiD originally said it would be a mix of arcade and sim...which was an outright lie. if you dont like arcade racers, this series has never, and WILL never be for you.

this looks really promising. love the controls and graphics so far.
Commented on 2008-08-21 10:51:27
looks really nice ... me want!

It's going to have to work incredibly hard to be better than Burnout Paradise!
Commented on 2008-08-21 11:09:10
the graphics look good and it's really nice that you can choose which way to drive, but the quasi 0 effect from collisions and the stearing which seams to be a direct copy of outrun 1 makes this game totally uninteresting to me

as Baleur said GRiDs stearing had a nice feel to it - arcady, but with a nice touch of simulation .. if this game had atleast GRiDs driving engine, then it would've been a must-buy for me .. *sigh* what a shame ..

What are you talking about?! The driving was dreadful in GRiD - it was everything else that made it 'good'

I like arcade racers, Grid was an arcade racer..
Just because i dont like the handling in this game or the latest nfs games doesnt mean i dont like arcade racers O_o
The earlier Midnight Club games were awesome. As was nfs2/3/4 as well. Please dont assume to know what i like and dont like based upon my opinions of 1 game =P

Nice graphics but....what about car damages??? No damages???? There is no excuse for that. The game looks great but I'll really miss some damages system on the game!
