Racing game is middle of the road; MTV Pimp My Ride: Street Racing (DS).

I LIKE to be honest with my readers, so I will be - I'm not really too sure about the concept of 'ride pimping'.

I think that's more a case of me being an out-of-touch fuddy duddy who clearly isn't hip and down with my homies.

Based on the MTV show of the same name this game is based around you 'pimping' your ride which basically means doing it up and making it look nice and then sending it out onto the street.

Essentially what we have here is no more than a paint by numbers skid on your wheels racing game. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, as racers go it's fairly good fun.

The MTV licence seemed a little bit of an afterthought to me though... the customisation and stuff to unlock is great and adds to the flavour of the game.

Graphically it isn't the best I have seen on the DS and neither is it the worst. Everything about this game cried out 'middle-of-theroad' - it's fun, it kept me entertained - but in all honesty it wasn't for me this time.

I must mention that the kids love it though
