There's also plenty of variety in terms of race types: the Cruising mode simply enables you to explore the city; Blitz races are against the clock; Checkpoint races are self-explanatory; and Circuit races involve classic track-racing through the city. Midtown Madness is delightfully off the beaten track--it's definitely an effective cure for traditional racers.
Full weather systems are also in place, and the snow even accumulates in the winter, clearly affecting vehicle traction and handling. Get a peek at the Windy City--you won't get to see the whole thing in the trial version, of course, but you can race four different events: cruise mode for a few minutes , blitz race, checkpoint race, and cops and robbers multiplayer only. The Blitz is a quick race through multiple checkpoints to cross the finish line before time runs out. In the Blitz mode you are given a time limit and you need to reach the destination within that time barrier. Of course, the cynics will dismiss it as Carmageddon Lite, berating the fact that pedestrians leap out of the way instead of exploding over your windscreen like a big bag of blood.

And if you simply want to put your choice of vehicle through its paces, as well as learn the intricacies of the city, the Cruise mode enables you to do just that. It is full and complete game.

The latter two modes take place with incidental traffic in full effect, often leading to the midtown madness of the title.
Audio Much like the real city of Chicago, this game is also quite boisterous. Chicago's finest are waiting everywhere in their squad cars, and if you go screaming past, they'll jump into pursuit. The focus is on racing, not destruction. The balance of vehicles is superb, and some ingenious design has gone into the courses. However, if pretending to run over pretend pedestrians in a pretend car is one of your criteria for a piece of entertainment, then it might be worth taking a look at what's missing from your life.
The overall graphics are very bright which I think really adds to the game -- especially these days with all the dark games that exist. Talk About The Weather Chicago may be synonymous with wind, but rain and snow play their part here, and driving is noticeably affected by adverse weather conditions. You are logged in as.

. The idea from the start was to create a living, breathing city where you race through the streets of Chicago, avoiding pedestrians, traffic jams and lawmen. With practice, you'll sail right through. Varying weather and time-of-day effects keep things interesting--especially the ultimate challenge of snowy nighttime races.

And to add variety, the density of police, traffic and pedestrians can all be altered.
With its innovations and broad audience, this game should appeal to drivers of all ages, which is why I give it a score of 95. The city lives and breathes, too--pedestrians dive out of your way, law-abiding commuters shuttle to and from work, and police cruisers patrol the streets just waiting for some nutcase to fly by in a Cadillac doing 120 mph. We said it then and we'll say it again: Microsoft in good game shock. You're not only encouraged to choose your own path between checkpoints, but you must also often do so to finish under the time limit. Some vehicles, such as the roadster, will not be nearly as strong as the semi truck, but will race circles around most anything on the road. And if you're thinking that the game looks a bit like the forthcoming Driver, you'd be absolutely right, and the inclusion of a classic muscle car provides a further parallel.

First up was the white trashpleasing Monster Truck Madness - which even spawned a sequel - followed by the majestic Motocross Madness, which proved to be a thing of grace and beauty.
