    Midtown Madness is one of those few computer games which you buy and just cannot stop playing. Others get boring, but with MM, the fun remains. The only real competitors this game has are NFS V and Driver. It beats both hands down. I am a driving sim addict-those are the only computer games I play most of the time. Due to this, I have played literally hundreds of driving games, including the computer and PS versions of NFS V and Driver. For a computer game to beat a PS game (I use a keyboard for my computer; no joystick or steering wheel) is *very* rare, but MM achieves this with not a competitor even coming close to it’s realism, stability and sheer fun. MM gives you a whole city to drive in-no limits to where you can go, no wrong way, no out of bounds… other games give you 10 or 11 tracks. MM gives you a whole city-and with MM2, they gave you 2! NFS V loses out here. MM has only a few cars (in MM2, they added more) but even with those, the realism of their handling, bumps, engine trouble, noises, damage… is wonderful. Both NFS V and Driver’s graphics are better than this, but Driver only gives you one car, so… And besides, you can always download other cars. The competition in MM races is fierce, with the competitors using their cars against your weak points, fishtailing you, bashing you up, cutting you off… The only thing is that the police are *really*, *really* dumb-even the ones in Driver are better Overall, this game passes with flying colours in other fields, but the big test is stability. On my P-III 550 with 64 MB, the game flew, with no crashes and no dropped scenes. On my P-II 450 laptop with 32 MB, the game was only a little worse, with a few pauses and dropped scenes, but nothing major. Compare this to NFS V on the laptop, which crashed the system every time I started it, and Driver, which would freeze after about 1 hour, and the results look good. So, my verdict would be 9.5 on 10, but I gave it a 5 star rating, because there is no option for halves or quarters. I say buy it; I have had it for 6 months and am *very* happy.

    A Kid’s Review
    This review is from: Microsoft Midtown Madness (CD-ROM)

    This is one of the best simulaters ever. It just blows Need For speed and other games out the window! There are so many tracks, about 30, then there is cruise mode were you get cruise around chicago, while pedestrians and other drivers coment on your driving. If you got a new PC (NOT A LABTOP!) this game is a dreamboat. Tires burn and engines smoke if yoou crash to much. number of cars are ok but the ones they do give are awesome. They give you: VOLKSWAGEN NEW BEETLE, cadallac eldorado, FORD MUSTANG GT, ford mustung fastback, Freightliner Century (flatbed truck), Ford F-350 superduty, Panoz Roadster, Panoz GTR-1, Ford mustang police cruiser, City bus, and i must have forgoton something. If your wondering you can’t jump the highway boards theres a invisible wall there and the tops of the buildings are liquid. There are some graphics glitches like disapearing traffic and ghost cars , but who cares with a game like this.

    THis game is so cool, you can ride around down town Chicago, smashing cars and doing lots of other damage, or you can drive safely and see all the things you can do on the streets of Chicago. MIdtown Madness is a great game and I recommend to anyone who likes fun games.
