In all, the new stuff adds more than 30 percent to the top of the already full-featured title. There are rarely experiences so necessary in gaming and they come along when the rare alchemy of challenge, fun, rewards, and solid presentation collide. Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition is such a moment, and the Remix is well worth revisiting.
Es ist ungewöhnlich, dass wir zu einer Budget-Wiederveröffentlichung eines etwa ein Jahr alten Spieles einen Test machen. Doch wenn wie im Falle Midnight Club 3 DUB Edition Remix der Titel so massiv aufgestockt wird, kommt man um eine Empfehlung nicht herum: eine zusätzliche Stadt, mehr Autos, mehr Musik, mehr, mehr, mehr… Zugegeben: In der NextGen-Dämmerung und angesichts von Burnout Revenge ist die Grafik nicht mehr die absolute Sahneschnitte, überzeugt aber nach wie vor mit einer wahnwitzigen Geschwindigkeit, detaillierten Boliden sowie enorm großen und offenen Arealen. Bislang hat schon kaum ein Weg an dem Vorzeige-Arcade-Raser aus dem Hause Rockstar vorbei geführt. Und mit der günstigen und aufgewerteten Wiederneuveröffentlichung noch viel weniger – auch wenn die anderen kleineren Mankos des „Semi-Vorgängers“ nicht behoben wurden. Kaufen, einsteigen, Spaß haben!
In the end, Remix is a stellar buy. It's $30 cheaper than it used to be, for more content and the same great gameplay experience. I know there are prettier racing titles out there, but Remix still remains hard to beat in terms of the sheer sense of speed and adrenaline offered (the motorbikes are still just as crazy-fast as ever). If you've never play MC3 before, or if you're the best MC3 player in the world, you owe it to yourself to snag Remix, pimp out some rides, earn some phat cash and experience one of the best racers for the Xbox. It's really quite that simple.
I love the action, but I just wish I had a more compelling reason to play the game other than the sake of completing it. I supposed unlocking all the cars and the races for multiplayer is the “real” goal here since playing Midnight Club 3 online is infinitely more fun than playing it by yourself. But whether you are a loner or live online, this is one racing game you definitely need to check out. And who else but Rockstar is going to give you nearly a forth more content at a third of the price? Well done!
Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition is an insanely fast, choatic and progressive racing game that betters the second in the series with more accessible racing, without losing its competitive edge. The single-player campaign is sophisticated with a working open city, customizable interiors and exteriors, and crazy new special moves that become crucial to winning later on in the game.
While graphically MC3 doesn't have the chops of Criterion's Burnout (which runs at 60 FPS), Rockstar's game does offer open city courses, more cars on screen simultaneously, a custom feature, special moves, and what appears to be a more robust and much deeper online component than its opponents. It's a tough game to beat in many respects.
The art of the video game special edition is one that's being honed more frequently these days. Recent special editions of games like Devil May Cry 3 and Metal Gear Solid 3 have created a lot of buzz among their assorted fan bases, as the developers rerelease the original games with new content--sometimes considerable amounts of new content. Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition doesn't seem like the most obvious choice to get the special edition treatment. But here we are, with Greatest Hits and Platinum Hits versions of the game on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox respectively, and this new version, dubbed Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition Remix, does add a considerable amount of new content, while simultaneously dropping the price into budget territory. If you never bothered with Midnight Club 3 when it first came out, then this is most certainly the one to get.
If you're a fan of thinking-oriented "pure" racing, add Midnight Club 3 to your collection and don't use the specials. I could clear every race without using a single special, and I'm not exactly a master of the genre. If you are looking for a masterpiece of racing as a genre, Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition Remix probably isn't quite it, but it's plenty close, with open-ended free play where you can choose what to do freely. Some will enjoy the soundtrack better than I, while others will prefer to just ignore it as I ultimately did, many will find the little flaws here and there annoying, but I'm going to say that 90% of those who get Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition Remix will find it well worth the cost, and those who enjoyed the original Dub Edition will find Remix to be worthwhile for the large amount of extra content.
