Excerpt: MotorStorm: RC is not just a $10 game. No! In terms of customizable playability, MotorStorm: RC is worth more than it’s physically released, and currently more expensive, direct predecessor, MotorStorm: Apocalypse. Evolution Studios made a good looking game; it might be a little too good looking for some at times. Some tracks have a lot of contrast to the structures maintaining the outline of the track which is a good thing – we are talking about racing toy-ish vehicles.
Excerpt: MotorStorm has quickly established itself as one of the PS3’s leading franchises. Set to sell well over 3.5 million copies worldwide, it has already spawned a sequel for the PS3 (MotorStorm: Pacific Rift), and there’s another game for the PSP and PS2 in the works as well (MotorStorm Arctic Edge).
Excerpt: MotorStorm probably isn't the launch title you're expecting it to be. On the surface it looks like an arcade-style racer that allows you to recklessly hurtle around various canyon-themed courses while smashing into other vehicles. In reality it's a tough racer that requires real driving skill and time to lean the correct route through each of the courses. MotorStorm's got that next-gen "wow" factor but it's one of the deepest launch titles for the PlayStation 3.
Summary: If you’re looking for a next gen racer full of action and tons of eye candy, this title is for you.
It may not have all the added bells and whistles of some racing games, but that is part of its appeal. It’s a rugged unapologetic action packed racer.
Is it a must have for the
? This reviewer says yes. It’s a great title with lots to keep you occupied if you like explosions. Seriously, get some friends over and watch the fireballs fly. They will not be disappointed.
