Rockstar’s Midnight Club series takes on the clusterf*$k urban sprawl that is Los Angeles.

…And by take on I mean near-flawlessly recreate the city. Given the…how can I put this…less than favorable way in which L.A.’s urban “planning” has created the ever-growing metropolis we know today, this seems like an incredibly daunting task. Well, rest assured, not only is the virtual Los Angeles in this game startlingly accurate – it also looks damn good.

As someone who has lived in L.A. and experienced the good and, of course, the bad that the City of Angels has to offer, I can honestly say that the most appealing aspect of this game to me would be driving at 130 miles per hour on the 405 at any time of day I fucking please. A Los Angeles with no traffic and no shitty air quality (although I’m unsure if Rockstar is going to release a peripheral that periodically shoots a delightful spurt of carbon monoxide in your face to give you the true L.A. driving experience) sounds like an unbelievably awesome thing to experience, whether virtual or real.

In case you can’t make out the above billboard, it says San Diego Fwy North (which happens to be my hometown) and Sepulveda Blvd (which happens to occasionally host L.A.’s finest working women). The game is slated for a September release on the Xbox 360 and PS3.
