FrankB.Oct 25, 2008Worst game ever, the Wii has racing game with better graphics. The game stutters all over the place as the PS3 can't run game. I am on my 5th PS3, as PS3's break down all the time. All my friends had to ship back all of their PS3's because they broke.
Sep 22, 2012The appeal of this game is difficult to comprehend. The only thing I can respect is that there are 8 different vehicles and each one has its distinct advantages and disadvantages according to the terrain. But that's where it ends. Save datas corrupt easily, and some of the textures are simply abysmal. What strikes me most about this pathetic "racing game" (if you can call it that) is how shocking the driving physics (or lack of) are compared to other games in the genre. The understeer is severe, making the game unplayable. Controls are generally unresponsive and unless you use the bike everything handles like a brick. There is little skill in this game, it's all about picking the fastest route for your vehicle because the game's mechanics are so basic there is little room for perfection. All you can do is boost, accelerate, brake and handbrake. Even the most arcade racers manage to implement some sort of skill but Motorstorm is neither skillful nor appealing to either casual gamers or hardcore racing fans like myself. This is mostly due to the fact that the flow of the action and intensity of going fast over rough terrain is broken up by constant crashing. This is brought about by the highly insensitive steering and the amount of clutter in your way on cirtually any path you choose. Most people would probably start off picking a rally car because it's something they feel most familiar with, but unrealistically the rally car has amongst the worst handling even though it should be one of the sharpest vehicles due to its stiff suspension. Overall there's nothing to credit this game for other than its frankly pathetic attempt at making a racing game which involves different types of vehicles over less bland scenery. Soundtrack is deafening and the almost non-existent driving physics coupled with the WORST CONTROLS I'VE EVER COME ACROSS IN A RACING GAME make it unplayable. You really have to have no standards whatsoever to even consider rating this a good game. If you've played a racing game before, no matter how bad it was, you won't find one worse than this.… Expand
