DescriptionMidtown Madness 3 is the third game in Microsoft's city racing franchise. It features 40 Blitz and Checkpoint races, a career mode titled "Work Undercover" which spans 54 varied missions (from racing to driving a pizza car to taking control of an armored bank truck), and a complete online mode that allows you to challenge players over Xbox Live.
There are two cities to choose from, both modeled after their real counterpart; Paris and Washington D.C. Paris is the more open ended city, great for beginners, while Washington features lots of narrow streets, sharp and hairpin turns, and various other distractions.
There are over thirty licensed vehicles to choose from, from a Lotus Esprit Turbo to a real-life garbage truck. Each vehicle has it's own different characteristics, including speed, handling and acceleration.
Over Xbox Live, you can compete in a variety of games:
Capture The Gold -- Similar to Capture The Flag.
Hunter -- Two players are cops, while the rest are normal vehicles. When a cop rams you, you become a cop. The last person left to be pulled over is the winner.
Tag -- Same thing as the childhood game. One car is "it", while the others have to avoid him.
Midtown Madness 3 supports voice, and allows you to download various content.
