Firstly lets answer the answer the question on everyone lips, is it as good as, better, or worse than NFSU2, which is an exellent game itself.
Well, the answer, is yes. It is better. It's not like compairing GTA:San Andreas to the Heman game, but it is better.
Absolutly everything is better. In parts, only slightly better, but it's all better.
The handeling is better,the car selection,the customisation,the music, everything!
OK, so basically MC3 is set in 3 different cities: San Deigo, Atlanta, and Detroit. You play a newbee on the racing scene, and have to work your way up the ranks. The driving is very solid, but just a touch too twitchy. But there are certianly enough cars to keep you happy! Tuners, muscle, SUVs, Trucks, luxury sedans, super cars, choppers, sport bikes, everything you could dream of. There are Maclarens, lambroughini's, porches, everything that you've ever stopped to look at.
And the best thing is you have complete freedom to rip these cars apart, and then build the car of your dreams. Imagining 28inch spinning rims on a hummer lowered until it scrapes the floor, with pink flashing neon? Why not! The customisation options shove dynamite up NFS's ass and lock it in a submarine! There are limit less body, wheel, colour,vynal, everything options! Although sadly thuis game lacks the free-customise mode of NFS, so you cant just experement, cause it's gonna cost money.
The music selection is great, featuring an astounding selection of hip-hop, dance,drumnbass, rock and reggee.
My only problem with this game, is that it is very difficult, and sometimes unfair, but dont let that stop you from buying it! Class all-round!
