DescriptionMotor City Online is an online-only racing game. The game is all about cars. You choose a persona to represent you and you are given an initial amount of cash. With this money you must buy your first car. Once you have a car, take it to the streets and compete in various races. You can either race for money or for pink slips.
Cars have a lot of customization options, from wheel bars to fuzzy dice. MCO also delivers an online community, where you can chat with other racers, or join a "club" where you can have club-specific races, and maybe win some turf. The game contains many race modes, such as Drag Racing, Circuit Racing, Sponsored Racing, and Street Racing.
You can also buy parts and cars at an auction, or you can visit different dealers. You can choose to sell your own parts or cars, or you can be a dealer and buy stuff, then sell it at a marked up price.
