For a game supposedly based on MTV%26rsquo;s shamefully addictive car-modding show, there%26rsquo;s very little pimping here. In fact, the options for doing up your vehicle don%26rsquo;t seem much more expansive than what you%26rsquo;d find in a Need for Speed title.
In a rather predictable turn of events, you start out with an old banger and then complete races to earn cash to buy rims, spoilers, paintjobs and the like. The game%26rsquo;s currency is %26lsquo;scrilla%26rsquo;, and we have to admit that with challenges called things like Bling Daddies and Panzer Rapper, this walks the dropped-shoulder West Coast walk. The racing is arcadey in a Burnout way but not particularly tough, with frequent nitro pickups and forgiving crashes.
This is totally average, but made more disappointing by the fact we couldn%26rsquo;t see Xzibit or the West Coast Customs %26lsquo;crew%26rsquo; anywhere in it. Pointless!
