After four years of work, the team behind Liberty City Nights have released a build of their mod which turns Grand Theft Auto III into a very luminous racing game.

While the creators say it's inspired by the Need For Speed Underground games, I'm going to pretend it's a new Midnight Club game, just to keep it in the Rockstar family.

The improvements made to the car models and lighting are pretty hot for a game that's over ten years old.
