Fun racing all the way!
Midtown Madness is a very fun racing game
which is different from the conventional racing themes. The games gives you vast city exploration
tracks and a very good depth of options. Starting with the game modes, they are 4 in total and everyone is unique and filed with action and fun. Start with the blitz mode where you have to beat the time to reach from one location to another. The checkpoint mode
where you will be cruising through dense traffic and pedestrian people
which you can set up yourself through the editor. Then you have the circuit mode where you will be doing racing with the competitive computer opponents on defined tracks. The last mode in the game is the Cruise mode which basically involves racing and exploration of the city of Chicago
. MM has added a lot of variety to the gameplay through options such as selecting the time of racing, the density of pedestrians and traffic on the tracks, the weather conditions and the crash mechanics
. All these options are very functional and they really add a lot of replay value to the game. The graphics are very good and so are the crisp controls. You should also try Top Speed
but first enjoy Midtown Madness city racing.

A crazy city racing game
Don't you just love crazy racing games? How about a game where you have to option to roam around a metropolis, at your leisure. Midtown Madness was the perfect game to let you in! The game offers 4 modes of gameplay: Blitz, where you need to get from one place to another within a time limit, Circuit where you compete against others on a pre-determined track, Checkpoint, which is self-explanatory, but here you other traffic vehicle make an appearance, such as police cars and there are even pedestrians, and finally Cruise, where you just explore the city of Chicago. One of the best features I have found in this game is how you want to play: which part of day (day, night, morning) you want to race, what kind of weather you wish, how dense the pedestrians and traffic you want the city and the physical realism, which is basically a mechanic where you can damage and ultimately crash your car. However, once you car is "wasted", it is restored back to normal so you can continue cruising. The location is the same, but there's a good variety of tracks and cars throughout the game.
