Pimp my ride
I love watching pimp my ride and films like 2 fast 2 furious. It is because I love custom cars, watching them being modified and changing through their stages. I don't just like them because of their performance I love the way they look.
I was going through a game shop and saw this on the shelf. I was amazed I never new it was released, an amazing program and made into a hopefully an amazing game. I got the game in the morning and played it solid for about seven hours, once you start playing it, it is so hard to stop.
Playing for seven hours I got quiet far in the game and its great because it is one of those games where it starts off quiet easy so you get the hang of it and become hocked, and then it gradually gets harder as you progress along in the game through your customers.
Some parts of the game cane be very boring like when you are trying to nail a ghost dance or trying to nail a dance move to get the last bit of money you need to start pimping the car.
I really like this game but I do think there are a few down sides to the game, they are:
The limitations on the custom jobs you can't layer the paint like in the need for speed games or when you are buying accessories for the customer. I also think you should be able to re-size the object and place it where you want it.
I also dislike how you have to raise your money. There is one way to do it, dancing. It can be very boring after doing it once or twice; I think you should be able to street race or something like that.
I think they should bring out a 'pimp my ride 2', but with better custom options, and being able to do different parts of the car like the engine, or putting neon on it. Also, you should have different ways of making money like racing or the left over money from the last car should be left on and able to be used for other customs. I also think at the beginning of the game you should be able to design your character for the story.
The graphics in this game are good, even though it has been copied off a TV program. They look realistic and the cars look like photos. The only graphical downside is the people in it they look really fake.
The sounds of when you are driving have been perfectly timed unlike sum games I have played; you brake, 2 seconds later you hear a screech. The music on this is mostly R&B or hip-hop; x-zibit also has a few of his tracts on it to. I am not a great fan of R&B but you can turn the music off. I would of preferred a broader range of music on it but it isn't a massive disappointment.
If you are an ace at driving games or a fan of the actual pimp my ride show this is the perfect game for you.
You are able to purchase this game from most game shops.
