That's right. Midnight Club: Street Racing was the first video game to feature illegal street racing. Speed freaks, car nuts and boy racers form illicit societies around the world, with only one thing in mind - to find out who is the fastest.
Set in New York and London, with cars tuned by the finest tuning houses in the world, the game gives players complete control over how they race. There is no track, and there are no rules. All you have to do is get through the checkpoints first, taking any route you want. The city streets are your course, and the police are present to try to keep law and order, but you can go anywhere you want, and break any law, as long as you don't get caught.
You have to race and beat the best drivers in New York, as well as avoiding New York's finest, the NYPD, before gaining access to London, where you'll have to beat the best in the business, before the world champion will consent to race you.
Derrick May, Surgeon, and Dom and Roland have contributed 5 tracks each to possibly the ultimate postmodern urban soundtrack.
Midnight Club was developed by Angel Studios, now known as Rockstar San Diego, and released on October 26th, 2000 on the Sony PlayStation 2 Computer Entertainment System.
