    This single-handedly justified my early PS3 purchased. So many nights of moving through those awesome menus and into races so intense (and perhaps a little too difficult), that is was an entirely new experience.

    This game is fantastic! Without a doubt it ranks up there with the best offroad racers of all time and perhaps best racing title, period. The graphics, racing engine and especially the physics are all stellar. Sure it could use more tracks... but what it lacks in variety it more than makes up for with the quality of these 3 key components. Any doubters, play it on your friend's PS3 for 10 minutes and you will love it regardless of your console preference and despite it being a hated PS3 title (just like Halo/Gears of War are excellent titles even if you hate the 360). Trust me, PLAY THIS GAME! Collapse

  1. Motorstorm is pretty much the best off-road driving simulation ever to grace a console. The physics are so accurate, yet altered for arcade like effect, and feel so right that the development team must have had at least a couple Physics PhD’s on staff to pull off such a feat. [JPN Import]
  2. One of Motorstorm's big successes is that it demands of you things that other racers don't even bother to ask. You'll have to learn every nook and cranny of the terrain before you can drive around courses with confidence. [JPN Import]
  3. Tough, dynamic racing. A blistering thrill ride that makes good on PlayStation 3's promises. [JPN Import; Jan 2007, p.58]
