    Midnight Club 2 is an older PS2 game, meaning it will hardly look pretty by today's standards, but it has a kinda solid career mode, and the free roam is just kind of fun. Having to unlock everything can be a bit of a chore though, and I found that the best way to experienbce this game is by using the cheat code 'rimbuk' (without the quotation marks) which unlocks everything, unlimited Nitrous and MISSILES in free roam. It's kind of a laugh to mess around with. However, I thinkyou should wait for a sale, £6 is a bit much.
    (Also it does Support WIndows 7/8)

    *FULL WINDOWS 7 SUPPORT*

    Who ever works at Steam and made the notice saying this game does not support Windows 7 or Vista is poorly mistaken, I have Windows 7 and this game runs fine, even better than when I owned it on my ps2 lol just no multiplayer, other than that this game is perfectly amazing old school arcade racing fun!

    Midnight Club 2 Is an awesome game, It is an old one, but still awesome. If you are into racing or just messing around, this game is for you, It has a good campaign mode which is very challenging. It DOES work on my Windows 7 so dont worry. A major downside is that GameSpy servers shut down, which means you can only do LAN or hamachi ;(. It also has many glitches to explore and fun minigames in arcade mode. There are even cheat codes in the options section where you can, well, do cheats! The code: rimbuk unlocks everything. If you dont mind that its a bit dated (2003), and the graphics, then it's worth it

    Notice: This games works perfectly normally on Windows 7 (64-bit).

    Thumb up or down? Hmmm Up I guess, it's not terrible, but not as good as modern racers, nor even as NFS: Hot Pursuit 2 which was made in the same year as MC2. I'd suggest only getting it on a major sale or part of a Rockstar bundle pack (as I did).

    It is an ok game, but lacks very much. If you want to play some older racing games on PC, I highly recommend need for speed underground 2 or need for speed most wanted (2005). This game uses arrow keys as controls and has an awkward feel to the controls. Graphics are okay for a game of its time, gameplay is ok, but can lack at times. It is an okay game, not good, but not really bad.

    Works perfectly fine on Windows 7. I guess Rockstar just made a mistake they never bothered to fix. Either way, great game and lots of fun. I personnaly love the characters and their comedic interior dialogue, which I'm surprised they didn't decide to keep in MC3, in which they only had the mechanics talk to you instead.

    Midnight Club 2, good ol' racing game from the PS2 era and what is considered to be by some fans, including myself, as one of the best Midnight Club games in the series. I'll try to make this detailed without it being too lenthy, so let's get this started.

    If you enjoy racing games on the PC, this is one of those games you should definitely try out, especially since it's normally only $10. Mind you, the game is almost 11 years old as of this review, so comparing it to modern-day racing games and reviewing based on that would be silly, right? For it's time, it's a very fun-filled and possibly addictive game with fast cars and racers who are willing to give you a run for your money, or the occasional cops super speeding to prevent you from winning the race. Three cities, Los Angeles, Paris, and Tokyo, and racers on the streets every night waiting for a challenger to follow them to the start of the race, Career Mode is worthwhile once you get the rivals' cars and break top speeds with them. As you progress, you'll have more access to cars to run around in Cruise in Arcade Mode. The physics are very loose, and to a certain degree, exaggerated, but that only adds to the fun of driving around the streets, dodging traffic cars and clearing checkpoints. There's several other things you can do while playing the game, but I'll talk about that another time. Besides, who doesn't like going at their top speed, hitting the nitrous, and hitting local pedestrians that walk around for you to hit them while racing, or cruising? Don't worry, they all live anyway, even if they don't ever move again. Also, the soundtrack is pretty damn good, and it seems that every racer has their own songs that you'll race in with them, and then listen to later after you beat them. Being an old game, I wasn't expecting the graphics to be as clean as they are. They must've re-added some nice quality textures at some point in the recent years, because it looks very clean for an aged game like this!

    Even though the game is very enjoyable to Midnight Club fans, it can be at times annoying difficult, or give you one of those "WTH" moments for anyone. Probably because I still haven't gotten my MC2 Driver's License yet (I might have made that up), I've played this game on the consoles for years, and still tend to find certain parts of the game to be a pain at times, learning the controls on the PC only adds to it. For anyone who plays this game, those moments could be from heavy traffic, hitting poles that stops your car completely and, if you're lucky, send your car's back end up in the air, getting tipped over from cutting certain corners or oversteering with the wrong car at certain terrain, and let's not forget the occasional driver who doesn't use their blinkers before switching lanes. For newer players, you may have to learn the whole track before you can increase your chance of winning certain races, because sometimes checkpoint arrangements can offer too much freedom to where you miss a shorter route or have no clue where to go, or you miss it because you were a few inches away from the checkpoint radius. Oh, almost forgot about the multiplayer! It's...... dead, understandably.

    Overall, the game would have to take some getting used to, but it can be very joyful while you do it, especially if you're a racing gamer who just loves driving around in fast cars. And for that reason, I recommend this to those who are into these kind of games! Like I said earlier though, it's an old game, from 2003, so if I see any of you badmouth it and say it's not as good as Need for Speed: Rivals or Most Wanted (either one), I'll take out one of my earned cars from MC2 and run you over with it!

    Sincerely,
    Totally Not a Die Hard Midnight Club Fan K9_Rage

    The PS2 ERA Classic, amazing.
    I Spent about 250 + hours on this game on the PS2...

    Pros about the PC version:
    - 1920 X 1080
    - Despite the warning it works for Windows 7/Vista/Windows 8/8.1
    - PS2 Classic

    Cons:
    Sensitive keys, wonky controls but easily fixed.

    This arcade style, city-navigation, character driven, jumptastic racing game is the only game I have with mouse steering and I miss it in every other driving game. And a lot of tight streets in the cities of this game require the detailed and quick steering a keyboard can never offer. Maybe the people who are buying hardcore driving simulations already have a wheel but certainly mouse steering should be standard in any game looking to appeal to a broad audience. Because the controls in Midnight Club 2 are simply superb, the game mechanics and driving feel are perfectly balanced for fun and a challenge.

    To start off you might be just holding down the gas the whole way, but eventually with extremely power cars and navigating the city, the driving does feel like actually racing through a living city, just one designed for lots of jumps and high speed cornering. Some cars you will use the brake, others the handbrake instead, but getting around fast is genuinely enjoyable. And with each car having its own style, you get to chose how you'd like to play. The cars get better as the game progresses, making it part of the game to drive a few different cars or seeing how far your favorite car can get you. Once you finish the story, you can start over with all the cars unlocked.

    You get three cities that each have unique neighborhoods with nice feel to them, but more importantly, huge jumps and long curves and straights for racing. The traffic can get in the way a lot of the time, but you can avoid them by going through the jumps or hidden sections of town that cut around underground, making learning the map sometimes a necessary frustration, and sometimes a ton of fun.

    I have never enjoyed playing a raceing game
    Except this one.

    something about raceing on the streets of an actual city made things worth it.
