Mid Night Club was a group of upper-class individuals who were serious about their street racing. As a Drivetribe describes the group, they were a secret society of street racing.

So the goal was to host top speed races on the Wangan, a Japanese highway. While there were plenty of other car clubs that participated in similar activity, the Midnightclub strived.  They became the focus of media attention everywhere, featured in hundreds of articles that dove into those who made it in the extreme driving habits. One’s who entered even had to serve as an apprentice for a year before being given full membership.

It meant coming to every single meeting as well. Membership was highly sought after, and very few were ever able to gain entry.

Race The Future has been a success. After all, it’s a futuristic racing game built-in and around drifting and sliding. So only the drifting and sliding here are kind of out of the box. It’s a good sign when the game’s core mechanic impedes its success. Somehow Rise succeeds despite slight flaws.

Don’t treat this as a straightforward racing game, rather than one where the gamer has to go on long slides around neverending curves, it kind of works.
