Trailers of Midnight Club LA

Trailers of Midnight Club LA

Rockstar released these three trailers of Midnight Club: Los Angeles, to be released in October on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Don't forget to watch the gameplay video from GC we posted here earlier if you haven't, the game looks pretty impressive. The first trailer is just an English version of one we had up earlier, but the other two should be new.

I was really looking forward to getting this but have serious doubts after seeing the gameplay video from Leipzig. It's a shame they decided to stay so over-the-top arcade style. The physics for the cars look like crap. Why won't any developer take an arcade racer a little more seriously like PGR. I'm not looking for a sim, just something were it's not just bouncing off walls and twitchy steering. NFS Prostreet made an attempt last year but failed. I think it's starting to look very odd that the graphics look so real and yet the cars handle and move so fake. Again, it doesn't have to be like Gran Turismo or be boring, there's plenty of room in between.

Also, couldn't they come up with a better idea for the checkpoints than some ugly smoke trail in the middle of the road. And why bother putting pedestrians in the game if you can't hit them and they just clip right thru your car?!?

NFS Undercover might be a little better, but the early videos of that didn't look too hot either.

You basically what Need For Speed Underground 2 that game is still one of my favourite games ever if you haven't played it, do so. I would love if the latest need for speed straddled along same lines (gameplay) as NFSU 2 but it seems highly unlikely.

What are you guys talking about NFS is rubbish compared to midnight club where do you think underground and that got the original idea from oh yeah midnight club dub edition.

We're not talking about the idea or concept for the game or even which one's better overall. We're just talking about the handling and physics for the cars.

Have you seen the gameplay video? I was a massive fan of the older games, but this one seems far too arcadey and I think i'll give it a miss.

It's not like we're doing a final review of the game already, it's just obvious from the gameplay video that there's some issues with control and vehicle physics. The customization has always been great in the series, but first and foremost it's a racing game and it needs to lay the groundwork for good handling in the cars.

Try Grid, that game has the prefect balance between arcade and sim.

And it's very pretty :)

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The game doesn't have to rely on cheap jump scares normally associated with traditional game design in VR. The immersion just does it automatically. It's something a normal TV can't compete with. (6 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite the game should come with a warning and a disclaimer should you decide to play it in VR. As soon as you're there, it's extremely uncomfortable, even if nothing is happening. (8 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: Trust me on this, if immersion and horror is the aim here, and it is, then first person and VR makes perfect sense. I'm not joking when I say this... (9 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: The demo is tame compared to what I seen in the first 45 minutes. The atmosphere got ramped up big time, and don't be thinking you're safe behind closed doors or walls. (10 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: I know people prefer VR or first person view but if they were to patch 3rd person view, my life would be complete. (10 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Light and shadows, as well as sound, play a massive role in the design of the game. I'm confident it'll be a return to form. (12 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: True. I still havent got over how scare the RE7 demo was... crickey! (13 minutes ago)
