  1. Annoying load times aside, I can't fault ModNation Racers for the nearly perfect package that it is, and for that reason I feel safe in proclaiming Sony's masterpiece the best kart-racing title in the history of gaming. Period.
  2. An intelligent, deep and enjoyable game that takes the 'play, create, share' initiative and runs with it. Fun, entertaining, a pleasure to look at and create in – MNR raises the bar for the genre.
  3. When it comes to the core gameplay, however, there's no question: it's the best in its class, dethroning Mario Kart in every technical way.

    The custom tracks, cars and drivers make the game much more than just the sum of it's parts. Shame I wasn't able to try out the multiplayer races, so the score is based purely on the singleplayer experience. [June 2010]

    Finishes strong. [July 2010, p.82]
  6. ModNation Racers is an enjoyable game that is packed to the brim with so much content that you won't know what to do with it all.
  7. The mixture of Mario Kart racing and Little Big Planet's customisation should be a recipe for hours of fun. Unfortunately, the long loading times leave a bitter taste.

The sheer oblivion-extent of customisation is almost a game by itself. the tracks are challenging, colourful, fast pace and a ton of fun. Perfect to play with a group. Even gaming novices. I had a lot of fun creating my own circuits from the ground up literally, soaring through the skies through flaming hoops suspended by helicopters while dodging obstacles popping up just as you take off a ramp. The ability to fire missiles at opponents adds to the mad fun. The graphics may look as though they're aimed for young teens and younger, but it is just as much fun for those of us whom like challenging racers. A definite must-buy! Expand

Still a good arcade racing game on ps3. Expand
