Midnight Club: LA is on its way, and the developers at Rockstar Games just released a new video of an Audi R8 doing its thing through the concrete jungle. The name of the game: arcade. Or better names might be 'free-for-all' and 'pedestrians, watch out!' It's cut like an MTV video, so it's hard to get a feel for the flow of the action, but all you need to know is that there'll be plenty of it -- action, that is. And if nothing else, it does seem to accurately depict how actual R8 drivers tend to pilot their cars... Follow the jump for the video.

      Ridiculous comes to mind.

      I can't watch the video and am too lazy to search at work..... are they using the car damage model from GTA IV or not?

      Because they should. Because it's awesome.

        They are using the same engine at GTA IV, RAGE (Rockstar Advanced Game Engine), but I suspect the damage modeling is disabled.

      I don't even know why EA is even bothering to release a Need for Speed title this year, because Midnight Club LA will take its lunch money.

      If EA buys out Take 2 and kills Midnight Club in favor of more NFS titles, I'll be more than a little irked...

      yes YES YES!!! i love Midnight Club games. I don't have the time or the funds to pick up all the epic games coming out this fall... i think i'll stick to this and fallout. But damn, i can't wait to deck out an R8....

      I just hope it's better than the previous Midnight Club games, but I'm not getting my hopes up yet. It takes more than just pretty graphics to make a great game.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yes, because heaven forbid they should make it like the last one, unrealistically fast-paced, and thus, fun.

        I love Forza, and Gran Turismo, but, I also love games like Midnight Club, and even Need for Speed. I tend to get more addicted to Forza and GT because they are more realistic, and I'm constantly tuning the cars, and trying to make them faster. But, I have more fun with these arcade style racers, because the racing is so much more fast paced and exciting.

        Sure, the physics aren't realistic, and racing an Escalade is a bit zany, but who cares. Games like these were never meant to be realistic in their gameplay, they are just plain fun.

        I wouldn't go as far as to say Forza2 or GT5 are realistic though.

      The return of Sidewalk driving. WhEEEE!

      Actually not bad, as long as it doesn't have stupid graphics like LA Rush Hour. Now that was a horrible game.

      This will make people with R8s to drive like this in real life and they can then blame the video game. Brilliant!

      The dashboard says... 0... 000000...

      Looks like a pretty poor game imo :|
