Midtown Madness 2 Wiki

A Panoz Roadster in San Francisco, cruise mode.

Cruise mode is the main exploratory mode in Microsoft's Midtown Madness video game series. It allows you to explore any city you would like in-game without racing and rules.


Use this mode as a chance to just cruise the city, following rules. It's also for having fun while driving, crashing into traffic, cops and various roadside objects, and for using it for stunts. You can also use this mode just to explore the city to get the feel for the way of the land and shortcuts as practice for competing in races. You can change each part of the mode (traffic density, pedestrian density, cop density, weather, and the time of day). This mode caught the eyes of many gamers of the original Midtown Madness: Chicago Edition (or Midtown Madness 1) when it came out in 1999. Have fun!
