Midnight Club: Los Angeles
Midnight Club: Los Angeles is an open-world racing game, continuing the Midnight Club series which began in 2000 on the PlayStation 2 and GameBoy Advanced. The setting of Los Angeles contains a 24-hour day-to-night cycle and changes in weather. A map shows the locations of over 10 different types of races, all color-coded to reflect their difficulty. Players also can pimp their rides with Special Features, such as EMP blasts which knocks out the electronics of nearby vehicles. The game features both offline and online races.
Midnight Club: Los Angeles received high reviews, with an average score of 89% for its cityscape graphics, high attention to detail, and overall fun-factor.
Midnight Club: Los Angeles includes 9 online trophies. Unfortunately, after the closure of GameSpy following the Ziff Davis acquisition of IGN Entertainment, the online servers to the game were closed on July 16, 2014. As a result, the 9 online trophies - and therefore the Platinum trophy - have since become Not Obtainable.
Due to the online servers being closed on July 14, 2016, Midnight Club: Los Angeles' 9 online trophies - and therefore the Platinum trophy - are now Not Obtainable. However, the game still includes 36 offline trophies, so if you're still interested, then read on.
Before we begin, we recommend you having a flash-drive or portable HD handy, to back-up your save files. The reason for this is the pink-slip races, which are necessary to forward the game's story. If you lose a pink-slip race, you will lose your car. The auto-save feature prevents you from backtracking before the race. So, ever so often (or just before entering the race) make a back-up of your save. This way, if you lose your ride, simply copy the previous save back onto your PS3 and try again.
That said, work your way through the offline trophies by racing, racing, and racing. There are certain trophies pertaining to the Special Abilities, so switch them up once you've collected the appropriate trophy. Try to refrain from going nuts with your cash, and only upgrade the car you're currently using, to work towards the Rags To Riches trophy - which requires $1 million in the bank.
Unfortunately, with the online servers closed, this is as far as we can go.
