Midnight Club II builds on the illegal street racing fun found in the PS2 launch title Midnight Club. Like that game it pits you against street toughs in non-linear street races, all for bragging rights and access to better and more sophisticated rides. New in Midnight Club II are the police and the ability to drive a motorcycle.
The game begins with you in the charge of a slob named Moses. He acts as tutor, teaching you how to control your beater car and how to use power-ups, as well as offering overall moral support. He teaches you how to go about the business of the game: earning new gear such as Nitrous Oxide, new cars, and even new controls. The award of new controls later in the game show how you're a novice driver at the start but by the end you're a pro who can land on all four wheels after a jump, expertly control a power slide turn, and much, much more.
Much of the game consists of cruising around three large and well rendered cities: Paris, Tokyo, and Los Angeles. You don't just challenge someone to a race or sign up for an event and show up. Instead you get a map and have to follow a red dot. The dot is a rival racer. Once you track and chase him down, you flash your high beams and then you can race him. It's a clever way of giving you a warm up, keeping you immersed in the game, and best of all, teaching you the layout of each city.
Racing is fun, fast, and furious. This isn't a simulation, it's an arcade-style racer--but the physics system is internally consistent so it feels more "realistic" than it actually is. Rockstar has put a premium on keeping you in control, keeping the thrill-factor high, and giving you a heart stopping sense of speed. The graphics are fantastic and the cities are incredibly detailed. As a counter-point, the voice acting is just plain awful.
Midnight Club II offers a wide range of game modes ensuring it will be playable for a long time to come: career, mission, and a mode that lets you just jump into a race. Multiplayer is possible in hotseat mode, but it also supports Internet play. Internet lag is bad over dial-up modem (PS2), but broadband players (Xbox Live or PS2) will find the game silky smooth. All of this makes Midnight Club II a great addition to any videogame racing fan's library, but a must for online fans.--Bob Andrews
- Great physics, intense action
- Excellent graphics
- Plenty of game modes, including broadband multiplayer
In Midnight Club II you are an elite, next-generation illegal street racer, racing through the cities of Paris, Los Angeles, and Tokyo. Each location boasts open-ended routes, loads of shortcuts, and massive jumps. Filled with pedestrians, vehicles backing out of driveways, benches, lights, parking meters, trash, and other municipal properties, these living cities will require complete concentration and deft driving skills.
- Midnight Club 2 is all about unlimited freedom and fun in three separate living cities - LA, Paris, and Tokyo. Open city racing brings a whole new level of intensity compared to racing within the staged, controlled environment of a track-based racer.
- Eight player online multiplayer action! Also connect two Playstation2s via the Ilink adaptor to play four player multiplayer.
- The Midnight Club is now open to motorbikes. Take advantage of a bikes size for speed and control through tight traffic and alleys - but watch yourself, a wrong move will send you flying.
- Race more than 30 new performance adjusted vehicles, muscle cars, hot rods, rally cars and the worlds fastestdomestic and foreign autos.
- Cops want to break up an illegal racing circuit at any cost. Sophisticated techniques are the norm - they wont simply chase you down. Now they have helicopter patrols, will set up roadblocksso not only drive fast, but know the city and drive smart.

- Overall a great game!
I've been playing this game for awhile and I have to say that its the most addicting racing game I've ever come across. You can race in a ton of different vehicles ranging from a simple Civic to a totally tricked-out Aston-Martin. The marathon-length races are a huge plus in my book and I actually enjoy the computer voices talking trash while you're trying to concentrate. The only problem I've had with the game so far is that the computer players get unbelievably hard after you leave Los Angeles and the number of obstacles is exhausting. But its a great game to play when you wanna escape the rules of "real-life" and you have an urge to jump off a ramp and soar halfway across a city at 300+ mph. ...more info
- This game is the nizzle fashizzle
This game is off the hook. You will love this game. Race others and kick a$$ and also get your a$$kicked. There are no cons in this game is excellent. I you buy this game I must tell you that when you are on the Paris track you actually feel like you are in Paris. You alsom pass real places that are in Paris like the "Vasusha Vecoke" I know I have been to Paris. Same for La and Tokyo nad Los Angeles.The night setting gets you all in the mood. With choices to choose for music for Jewl to 50cent. you will absolutly love it. The interductoion was amazing. Like I said this game is the nizzle fashizzle...more info
- Great game
I think this game was pretty damn good. I thought it was even more so when i could run people over muhahaha. Thats right mr or mrs anonymous "a gamer" running people over is fun on the video games. It keeps me from doing it in real life. I mean its a f***ing video game. Plus i can see why you don't like it, that's because you can't win since you try to dodge the people. Well since thats out of the way.... The game has supurb graphics and gameplay although unreal at times. Thats what makes it good though... I mean if I wanted to drive realistically I'd get in my car. I loved the soundtrack people diss on it too much saying its fake. Just because it's not mainstream, does that mean it's fake? I could go on about how shallow people are for hours, but this is a game review. Don't just rush out and buy it though, rent it first, then if you like it buy it. The voice acting wasn't the greatest but overall it was a great game....more info
- Better than the first...
this is definite improvement from its predecessor... the graphics were improved dramatically and the physics of the car...
the only gripe i had was interest level.. same with the first, i got bored after a few hours of gameplay.. it got too repetative and predictable... ...more info
- Very VERY Cool!!
Love this game, the racing is very cool, effects are awesome. The only downside is not much availabe in the way of two player fun....more info
- Car-Racing at it's best!!!
What a surprise! In December 2000, Rockstar games released the worst car racing game ever, Midnight Club Street Racing. I bought it, and I hated it! So, why did I buy Midnight Club 2? I dunno, but here's my review:
First of all, CHEATS! MC 1 had NO cheats, and even that was a major let down. All cars, no damage, all cities; something that MC 1 needed.
Then, they have plenty of detailed, new modes. Battle mode, circuit racing, and online racing. Battle mode is fun for parties and friends, circuit racing is definitely a great feature, and online racing is excellent; exciting, real, AWESOME!
The cars are HANDS-DOWN the most detailed in any racing game. The engine sound, model, colors. And, don't forget the best part; three motorbikes in this game.
The cities are 10 times better. 3-D everything, bigger, more landmarks, open highways; this is your dream to race around without worrying about anything.
The graphics are INCREDIBLE! There are actually hills and ramps that MC 1 lacked. There are a million different cars, buses, and even trains!!!
Another new and great feature is the music. You can choose the music, and sometimes it can be bad (like Los Angelos) but sometimes good music for street racing (like Paris).
Overall, this is great. It's Vice City not on foot, with the cars of Auto Modelista. My 50 bucks spent was well worth it. ......more info
- If I could give it a 0 i would!
This was the worst game I have ever played. I am an avid gamer with some of the best records known in gaming history, and I will tell you, all my fellow gamers out there, that this has to be the most pointless, stupid and boring game that has ever existed on this planet. Not to mention the graphics .... Don't waste your money on it- it's not worth it. Rather spend it on GTA Vice City- way better use of your money folks. Outie....more info
- Great Racing Game
This game is extremely fun. I rented it and I immmediately fell in love with it. Cutting edge graphics, all the cars you could dream about, motorbikes, the whole shebang. I did find this game very challenging, i mean really hard. Most of this was very real, the burnouts were really cool, and once you get to Tokyo you got your work cut out for you. Not everyone will like this, its more of a style game than an everybody game. Rent it first, but if your like me and you like these kind of games, then you could buy it. Its defnitely a better racing game than GTA: Vice City, but Vice City is more fun. Have fun with the game. Peace easy!...more info
- would give it 6
Best game ever in my opinion atleast of today, also the best racing game but i havent played NFSU. Everything is cool except for the fact that the cars arent real and you cant sup them up...more info
- Awesome racing game!
Yo street racer! This game is the best street racing game in the world now. You can race males and females from all different countries. You get to unlock many cars with all different types of stats. You also can unlock three types of areas -- L.A, Tokyo and Paris. If you like going fast, also choose this game because there are nitrous boosts, slick slam turbo, airborne controls, and many other custom moves. This game also works for any type of racing wheel. If you want a good racing game, choose this....more info

This game is amazing! Not only can you race,you could also cruise the three cities. I love all the obstacles like the people,the cars,and espeecially the cops. This is so far the best game I've ever played....more info
YOU SHOULDNT BUY IT BECAUSE I BOUGHT 1 AND IT WAS BURNT IT DOESNT EVEN WORK...more info
- Great graphics, awful music
This game is much better than the first one. It has three huge cities, and plenty to do. It's definately the best street racing game available, despite the ridiculous soundtrack. It sounds like bad techno that was put together by a 15 year old kid on his computer. The graphics are very impressive, and the cars have very good control, especially the bikes. You won't believe it the first time you drive one. This game is a lot of fun, but be sure to put on your favorite cd instead of listening to the radio in your car, you don't want the bad music to effect your driving....more info
- OFF DA HOOK
THIS GAME IS AWSOME. ITS GRAPHICS ARE CRAZY. ANYONE WHO LIKES RACING GAMES SHOULD CONSIDER THIS GAME. I HIGHLY RECOMEND IT...more info
- Midnight Clud 2 Street Racing

- Got speed?
If I only had one word to describe this game, it would be: DAMN!
Like speed? Midnight Club 2 would be great for you. There is no greater feeling than hitting stairs at 150 MPH and being launched 200 feet into the air. Especially when it ends up winning the race for you.
Rockstar does it again!...more info
- Midnight club 2
The game is very exciting when you are racing against Online and against the computer. On the game you can customize your car to whatever you want it to look like and the decals are sickerning....more info
