    I've wanted to pick up Midnight Club 2 for awhile now. I've been pretty much addicted to PGR2 and am wondering if Midnight Club 2 is worth getting. Anyone have both of these games and can say if they still play MC2 with PGR2 in their library? MC2 is on sale at Target for $30 and I almost picked it up, but not sure I'll play it as I like PGR2 so much.

    Completely different games. MC2 has loose physics and for me the only fun part was the motorcycles. PGR2 has less forgiving physics and while it's still an arcade racer, it's much more realistic.

    Now if you want an arcade racing game, Need For Speed Underground is pretty good, and for me was much more entertaining than MC2.

    Thanks for the reply. I've thought about it and think I will pass on MC2 for now.

    You may wanna give MC2 a rent. It gave my bro and I many late nights screaming and swaying to the TV around each turn trying to beat the CPU. The cars look and sound cool. [​IMG]

    What about Need For Speed Underground? The driving physics is forgiving and you can "trick out" your ride in many many different ways. The graphics are also excellent and the sound is THX certified if that means anything.

    Midnight Club 2 is defenitely worth a look at $30. It has the fastest sense of speed of any racer out there besides maybe Underground. It also will last you a very long time(3 cities) and also has a pretty good online mode.

    Cool, thanks for the other input. I always forget about renting games. I'll go rent it and check it out for myself. I gotta remind myself about renting games!! I always just buy and then find out I don't like it!

    Underground looks really slick, but what I love the most about PGR2 is racing online. That goes away with NFSU on Xbox due to EA's online policy. Another consideration with NFSU (and I think Midnight Club if I recall) is that you have the ability to customize your cars, which is an element purposely left out of PGR2.

    For $30 bucks, MC2 is a solid buy. The only thing that annoyed me about the game was the cheesy looking characters but luckily that has little to do with the racing itself. [​IMG]

    As for MC2 vs. NFS: Underground, NFS has loads more style but I think its worth checking out both games. Being able to put a custom touch to your ride is cool, but I generally enjoyed the actual driving in MC2 far more than NFS.
