Rockstar don’t only make Grand Theft Auto Games, you know. The first Midnight Club street racing game put you in the shoes of a bored cabbie who gets drawn into the exciting world of a club that races highly-tuned cars across moonlit cityscapes. The rules were quite simple: win and you win your opponent’s car. Of course at the beginning of the game, your taxi-cab wasn’t going to win against anything in a straight race, so it was important to use cunning if you wanted to get ahead. Petrolheads on both sides of the Atlantic were kept happy, with parts of Manhattan and London featuring in-game. The second game in the series saw players cruising round any one of three cities, flashing their lights at other drivers to challenge them to races.

The third instalment has already come to PS2 and Xbox in the form of Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition, so called because it is produced in association with DUB magazine. Now it makes Rockstar’s debut on PSP too. Once again you can race through three American cities, and the game features licensed cars in a number of different categories: from bling heavy SUVs like Escalades, to tuned sedans, to motorbikes including Harley choppers, and the obligatory Japanese RICE cars, featuring motors created by the legendary Nissan Motor Company amongst other, less celebrated stables.

In their partnership with celebrated hip-hop cultural leaders DUB, developers Rockstar San Diego have kept pace with recent developments in the growing genre of car-tuning, street-racing games. Tuning and customisation plays a bigger part than ever before, and the online feature which made the second game successful is back, offering support for up to eight players over your PSP’s WiFi connections. Naturally, this being a Rockstar title, the soundtrack will have been given careful consideration, and with DUB’s influence, you can be sure there’ll be some pretty heavy beats booming out of your ride as you pick your route through tuning hotspots Atlanta, San Diego and Detroit. It may well be that you are waiting for Rockstar’s GTA to be-bloody the screen of your new PSP, but if you’re a fan of the controversial development house’s work, then this will have to do for now.
