Pimp My Ride was supposed to be the ultimate car customisation game, which is what the point of the show actually is. However, the game was a complete disappointment and I don't think you could find anyone in the World who actually thought this game was decent or good.
It was like everything with the game was just wrong and needed a lot of work as it was so poor. The graphics were so pixelated it was nearly impossible to play because it looked so bad. Now, we're talking next-generation consoles here, and they release a game that looks this bad; it's a joke. The handling and physics of the game were also rather pathetic, as if you wanted to turn the car, you'd move your analog stick to the direction and it would feel like the car just rotated to the angle you wanted, because of this I found playing the game really hard to play. The customisation mode was okay but still had silly elements to it which I guess everyone is used to if you watch the show because how often do you see a mini-van with a basketball hoop on the roof?
The only advantage really is the different types of events during the game, but when you actually play the different types, once again you will find yourself very disappointed. They are boring, frustrating and again poorly organised and poorly presented.
Overall, I would give this game a 1/5 but ideally a 0 is more perfect for it. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
Pimp My Ride is A driving game for the Microsoft Xbox 360 games console.
In this game much like the TV show you must turn very ordinary cars in really desirable rides.
Pimp my ride has some free roaming elements, but as the driving in this game is so broken you will have more fun simply getting straight into the game and not wasting time driving round the city.
The customization in this game leaves much to be desired, games like Need For Speed do it much better, you can also play minigames where you dance alongside your car which to me is rather ridiculous but some may enjoy it.
This game should have been really fun and enjoyable but instead it is a mess. It is best to leave this one on the shelf.
Even if you can find this game for next to nothing I recommend you pass it by an purchase a good game like need for speed.
What a game! I bought this at full price (£39.99) and thought I'd give it a try because I enjoy the customizing car scene. I wish I'd never picked it up.
This game, is entirely broken. It consists of you driving round completing certain challenges such as 'ghost riding your whip' (a rhythm action mini-game) and chekpoint races which unlocks parts - not only are the challenges boring and un-inspiring, but the controls are terrible. The graphics are some of the worst I've seen on an XBOX 360 title.
For a game where the main focus is to customise the car, you would have thought that they would have got that right but they couldn't even do that! You can only select from pre-set parts which are all terrible and you can't mix and match certain bits.
I urge you to avoid this game at all cost, the gamerpoints aren't even that easy to get (mainly, because the game is so unplayable)
