Summary

Midnight Club:LA Remix brings the thrills and spills of street racing to your PSP. The Midnight Club racing series is well established, but this is only the second release for the PSP. Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition was the most popular racing gae on the PSP ever, and Midnight Club: LA remix aims to take things one step further.

As the name suggests, this time the action takes place in Los Angeles, but because not all of the levels available in the home console versions are included in the PSP version, PSP owners get the added bonus of some Tokyo levels too. The streets of these cities are detailed and accurate, with real-life landmarks to help you navigate around them, assuming you are familiar with the LA or Tokyo streetscape of course.

Midnight Club: LA Remix features the open city environments and real-life licenced cars and bikes from the home console versions. It has all the customisation features too, enabling you to personalise your car with body-kits, paint jobs and phat rims. But this PSP version has been optimised to offer quicker races and shorter load times.

The bulk of the action takes place over an open-ended career mode, but there is a quick-access Arcade mode for quick-play races when you're on the run. Also exclusive to the PSP version is Frenzy mode, which tests your nerve and reflexes as you race through a series of checkpoints into a torrent of oncoming traffic.

You can play your friends in a range of all-action multi-player modes over Wi-Fi, but two are exclusive to the PSP version: Paint, in which you race through checkpoints and if you pass through them first, they become yours and are painted your colour. Reach the target first, or simply have the most checkpoints in your colour at the end of the race and you win! In Tag mode, you race for a checkpoint, last driver to reach it becomes "It" and the others have to try and stay close to you as you try to shake them off, the closer they are the more points they score, but if they touch you, they become "It".

With stunning graphics and exciting action, Midnight Club: LA Remix is a must for all PSP racing fans.
