    It is everything you can expect: very fun, well-presented and with a simple, yet powerful editor, although not as much as the domestic version.

    ModNation Racers is on the PlayStation 3 a great game, but on the PlayStation Portable it's possibly even better. The game has great customize options, a lot of gameplay, great graphics and many more positive elements. Only one annoying thing is the loading times, those are also on this handheld way too long.
  3. Despite some weaknesses in the driving sections - which you would think would be a deal-breaker for a racing game - the overall package is still very much worth it.
  4. In conclusion, ModNation for the PSP works as a good PSP game, however it's hard not to compare it to the PS3 version which it is based on.

    It's less flashy but more suited to PSP. [Aug 2010, p.97]
  6. It's fun and surprising. ModNation Racers proves to be a strong game on PSP catalogue.
  7. ModNation Racers for the PSP is a solid racing that offers up more in the way of customizable features and online connectivity then most Playstation Portable titles.
  8. While it doesn't quite encompass the charm and addictive nature of Mario Kart DS, it's still a strong game in its own right, and can offer hours of entertainment to kart racing fans.
  9. Both versions of ModNation Racers have been developed in parallel to provide two different proposals of the same concept. What we've got here is a crazy kart racing game, with a huge amount of creation tools and a good online community. Only a few shortcomings in the gameplay penalizes the final result. Even so, this is one of the best games of the genre, which aims to be a benchmark in the PlayStation Portable catalog.

I played the ps3 version a while back and it was pretty nice. The creating was way too addicting and the cart racing was fun and easy to get a hold of. The psp version's creating part is almost just as fun, with customization up the ass. The racing is fun but the drifting is incredibly difficult to use. I usually don't drift at all unless a mission gives extra for it. Overall, the graphics are nice, the racing is fun, the customization is very deep, and it's on the go of course! Consider it a lesser version of the ps3 version. But it's portable so it makes up for it, at least for me. Full Review »
