Motor City Online -- Retail version
« on: November 02, 2001, 03:45:00 AM »

Ok.  I am now one of many who are driving and tuning online at MCO.

First -- The monthly fee to play is $9.99.  Yeah, I'm not too happy about that, but I get to see just how much this game keeps me interested for the first month for free.  As of right now.....
The servers aren't packed, but there are little bugs running around.  Lag is still a problem, and the frontend of the game needs some tweaking.

Second -- Gameplay is great!  With everyone struggling to get good parts and good cars, track times are actually attainable.  The economy is fixed, where there is no one bidding 1 million dollars for a damn Air Scoop.

Third -- Graphically, this game is not up to par with Porsche Unleashed or High Stakes.  Guess they had to trim it down for online play, and you know what, I don't care!  I'm too focused on the track and not the scenery.  :)

Lastly -- Even though I was skeptical about purchasing this game, I am hooked AGAIN!  With the economy problem gone, and track times actually reachable, I've been tuning my car to try to get some of those times.  This is a fun game for me, and maybe to any other muscle car freak.  The monthly fee is a downer, but I'm using my EverCrack and UO fees to pay for this one now.  :)

This looks like an awesome game, but I 110% refuse to pay monthly AFTER I shell out $50 for the game. Give me the game free and I'll maybe pay $5 a month, or I'll buy the game then connect free. But if they expect me to do both then I'll never play that game.
