ModNation Racers: Road Trip Review
16 April 2012
Summary: " ModNation Racers RoadTrip " is a good first start for the San Diego studio on Vita. The only major issue is the lack of online play- where racing with all your creations would have been much more fun. As it stands, the game is still decent, just a little lacking in comparison to the PS3 version; and that’s the rub. The PS3 version is available online for much less, and offers much more. If you can live with that, ModNation racers is a very solid Kart experience.
Excerpt: ModNation Racers was easily one of the most entertaining "kart" racers on the PS3 and the PSP which not only allowed you to race on some whacky gaming environments against kooky characters but you also had a plethora of power-ups at your disposal.
Excerpt: I love the ModNation Racers series; its blend of cart racing infused with the play-create-share mantra introduced by Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet is a great combination for me because I love to share my work with the world, and I've wanted to design my own race tracks since I first played Mariokart in the early 90's. With the promises of ModNation Racers: Road Trip being a console experience on a handheld, I was excited to pick it up.
Excerpt: With ModNation Racers: Road Trip, the PlayStation Vita is wasting no time getting into the user generated content market. As a kart racer, it offers a bunch of tracks to race around, power-ups to collect, and objectives to complete beyond getting first place, all of which nets you items to use in its vast customization features. Road Trip has its share of both personality and quirkiness, cleaving close to kart racer standards while overextending those very same tropes.
Conclusion: Concept: Bring ModNation Racers to the PlayStation Vita, taking advantage of its unique hardware features
Graphics: Not up to par with the PS3 version, but still impressive
Sound: The catchy soundtrack is the only thing that stands out
Playability: Thanks to the Vita's dual control sticks, steering your Kart feels great
Entertainment: Players will have no shortage of tracks to check out, but the lack of online multiplayer is a major disappointment
Replay: Moderately High
Excerpt: Create, Share, Play. That was the mantra for ModNation Racers on the PS3. With the promise of user created tracks, karts, and racers that were shareable amongst the world, Sony’s kart racer had a lot of promise, and overall it was a pretty good game that I kind of enjoyed, but I did not get into as much as I thought I would.
