I don't know why I bought it, but I'm glad that I did. Midtown Madness 2 for the PC is probably one of the best PC games I've ever bought. When I say I don't know why I bought, I actually do. It was in a double pack along with Motocross Madness 2, all for just £29.99, cheaper than one of them individually. I've been playing Midnight Club on the PS2 for the last few weeks, and Smugglers Run on PS2 just before that, and have began to love these games where there are no set tracks to follow as you would find in most racing games. This is yet another Microsoft game. Most people would say that Microsoft couldn't make a good game if they tried. ... Read the complete review

The above title just about sums up this game: It has the ideas of London Racer (formerly known as M25 Racer) and the flair of Driver. When I first demo'd Midtown Madness, I thought it was like the rest of Microsoft's attempts at gaming...bland with a short lifespan. I also thought, after trying out MM2 that it would be more of the same. However, I have to say that Microsoft might have finally got to grips with what the game-buying public actually wants these days. You have sooooo many different choices of what to do in this game: quick races, stunt driving, checkpoint racing etc and a variety of cars to choose from (more can be unlocked as you ...

Midtown Madness 2 Pure Excellence! Recently I have brought Midtown Madness 2 for the PC and as soon as I went on it I thought this is going to be one of the best games I will ever play and I was right. You can choose from 20 different vehicles which all have there good points and there bad points. You can choose from 2 cities – London and San Francisco! There are also 4 modes in which you can play: Cruise: this is a mode where you can just take tours of the cities (or wreck the cities if you want to.) If you want you can just play by the law and just go round the streets, that’s if you’re boring! If you like you can mow down people ... Read the complete review

Not content with the operating system, internet and business utilities markets, Microsoft, in recent years, has moved into games. While few of their offerings are truly ground-breaking or market-winning, Microsoft has proved that they can make half-decent games. Midtown Madness 2 is a perfect example – a good game, but nothing too special. Well worth a play, but not worth a position next to the classics. Keeping the inner-city racing mayhem theme of the original game, number 2 expands into two new cities (San Francisco and London) along with new vehicles, better graphics and more modes of play. I enjoyed Midtown Madness – the openness and ... Read the complete review

OMG what an old game, played it the other day for a laugh so here goes. Released back in 2000 this game was a bit different from the general driving games which involved driving through cities. First off you were in the car all of the time so you couldn't get out and steel other cars etc... as in GTA, Driver etc... The game was pretty monotonous and although the graphics are rubbish by today's standards they were about average at the time. The environment is not the strongest part of the game and neither are the other cars which are generic blocks on wheels like that you would've drawn whilst in nursery. Another annoyance is the fact that no matter ... Read the complete review
