Gametrailers has posted their video review of Motorstorm :Pacific Rift.
thats a good score, i expected below an 8 from them.
Why does almost all the reviews base their reviews on what happened from motorstorm 1 to motorstorm 2. Should they not review (the score) the game compared to what other new games in the same genre came out this year. I tired of hearing why it's only a little better then MS1. Talk about the fact that there isn't a single arcade racer outthere today that can match this.
Good score for the best offroad racer ever
Are you kidding me? that is a bad score for one fo the best off road racer! GT is full of shyt...no one listens to their review especially PS3 exclusives.
keep that in mind
8.6 / 10 is a good score and Stop the bad score & flop thing it is gay stuff
Not bad, a higher score than most sites But it still seems like Pure will remain the off-road champ for now
Dont compare it to Pure its completely different .( its not worse just different)
Pure has absolutely nothing to do with motorstorm, at all. How can you even compare a game where the goal is to do tricks, to an arcade racer? The closest thing to compare Motorstorm to logically, is BAJA racing, which is a racing game... Or do you think that SSX is the same as the Bejing Olympics game? Dirt is the console Offroad simish Champ btw ;) and Motorstorm is the king of the arcade offroad racers. I think you are just trying to make yourself feel better for not owning a ps3, but even then.. Pure isn't even the same class of game. This is why I dont get idiots, not saying that you are one.. But I really don't understand complete morons. Not saying that you are one..
Sure, but Pure isn't an offroad racer though. It's more like SSX on wheels. :P
Please. Pure is so good its sold not even 300K copies on both platforms. MS will beat that even though its probably #3 or 4 on most PS3 gamers chistmas list. Pure is like sliding down an invisble tube, where the narrow track keeps correcting you to point forwards. The whole point is just getting air and doing your favourite waverace trick. And its only ATV's Offroad racing for dummies. The only reason Boxinites are talking up Pure (not buying, mind you) is because they have nothing else that can hold a candle to Motorstorm, and if you dont agree you haven't played it for more than 10 minutes. Its adictive as hell and a huge rush. I've put about 6 hours just into the demo. I dont think I've done that since the MGS2 Demo that came with Zone of Enders.
dang relax guys....I think he made a pretty valid point and although Pure is kind of different there still in the same type of category.
Pure?? is that the game where you dance in the air? I play racing games , not gimmicks.
I don't know, Pure really has more in common with snowboard-games than a racer, gameplay-wise that is. A better comparison in the realms of arcady/casual-racers would probably be something like Burnout, even though it's not in the offroad field. on topic: Good score, might check it out.
Pure is SSX but on a quad. literally! its score based. do lots of tricks get a high score. try being first etc. its quite diffrent.
But i disagree in two things you say ;)
This game deserves at least 9.5+...16 tracks...so many types of vechiles...amazing community support
I was just about saying something like that. 9+, below seems low to me. It simply has no competition. All other offroad racers are nice, but nothing is like Motorstorm. What I see in the video is a major step from MS1. Bigger environment, driving down that river looks awesome! (Ever seen something like that ?). I take everything back I said about the demo, this one looks nothing like it. Why better, need to go back and play the demo again right away... oh, yeah, seams justifying my Christmas shopping list.
The first Motorstorm was extremely fun and I think that it was reviewed too low (I would certainly rate it over a 9). Now after playing the demo of MS2 I really don't know how some sites could have given it a 7.. it's just so much fun, no racing game has better fun factor.
umh i never understood my love for motorstorm. it's not the greatest game ever, but it's not the worst... but i have so much fun when i'm playing it. few games make me happy like this. like when you are 100m to the finish line and you are on first... it's better not to relax. trust me... just ask my furniture (sorry for the punches)ehehe
lol i fell i have the same relationship with motorstorm. I felt like that with the first, but the 2nd one is one I feel I will truly love.
nothing like a second wife ;)
must buy. @Omega When you plant a thesis statement your supposed to back it up with logical reasons, now Blademask already gave you a well explanation, but if you must compare the two, Pure doesnt have nearly the amount of content this game has. Face it this > trashy teens on ATVs
but it is a PS3 game so its more like 9.0
anything above 8.5 is good. anything 9 or higher is a must get!
I don't care what anyone says. This is the best off road racer you can buy. In review, gt states, framerate is buttery smooth, debris,waterfx. No other offroad racer comes close, and look at the score they give it. And graphics wise, tears a hole in pure. So much going on, better courses, better lighting. Water fx are amazing. and the texture are much better then in ms1. Just watch the first part of the vid. God i wish gt really did hd reviews. Should at least be a 9. GT going on about motorstorm 1. Comparing a launch title. Which is excellent btw. I do hope they compare gears 1 with gears 1.5.
Gametrailers gave a PS3 game an 8.6? Then by all logic it should be a 9.6 XD
but M2 deserves alot better IMO. It's tough going up agaist all the other titles out this month.
The score is good, but it didn't matter what the score was because throughout the whole review I was drooling.
Good news gentleman from the Sony frontlines.It seems Metacritic has left this game at 81 and the GT 8.6 review has not come in.This means M2 is AA stuff.Congrats everyone. http://www.metacritic.com/g...
silence you fool! for you are a mere squire, and have not been ordered to speak!
good score, but what happened to all the AAA games all you sony fanatics kept talking about so far in 08 its only lbp and mgs4. what a shame since sny owns more studis then micro and ninty combined..
Flopped?? 89% at metacritic LBP has 95% average at Meta No x360 game reached AAA status at Meta this year --ninja gaiden 2/Too Human /IU --300 million dollars down the drain Resistance 2 is an AAA dont forget but will Gears 2 flop as well
Compared to the first, I felt that there was more excitement and fun in the game. Maybe because it was more of a new experience but the second one was just missing that, even though it's got much much more features and overall every aspect has been improved. I also think they should've stayed in the canyon, and really brought that enviroment to life.
Well what are they supposed to do, erase your memory so it feels fresh again? I dont understand everyones alleged hate (not you neccessarily) toward sequels, yet we always buy them. People complain "well it the same as the first game. Theyve just made the graphics better, more cars, more tracks, more classes, splitscreen etc etc." Hang on, they've improved everything about it. Isnt that good? But its the same game. Well if you didn't want that, dont buy a sequel, buy a completely different game if you want a completly different game. No point getting Tekken 6 and saying, its just a fighting game. Its for people who liked the first 5.
sux. just the same u guys call out fable 2 for a couple 8's lol. dont be a hypocryte.
Hahahahah thats one less AAA game for the PS2.5!!!! Well you never had any to begin with!!! Ha the only triple A games are on the 360 PROVEN TRUE!!!! All you guys can say OH we have MGS4, but you don't!! I have friends on the insidustry and they all know (3 of them are working actually working on it) that MGS4 is being rebuilt specifically to take advantage of the 360's superior hardware. In fact mS already has a contract for exclusivity of the next game. Suck that Sony droids!! Where is your precious game now? I know, on the 360! Hahahahahaha
Fable 2 flopped ??? 89% at metacritic. All x360 games failed to reach AAA status this year LBP , MGS4 and Resistance 2 all will be AAA . same cant be said for any x360 game Fable 2 = LOL Fable 2 is AA just Like motorstorm 2
No. Motostorm 2 isn't in the same league as Fable 2. Fable 2 is just on the edge of AAA 9 out of 10 with its current 89%. Motorstorm is just a 'good' game with an average of 7.7 out of 10 on Metacritic http://www.metacritic.com/g... That's a totally, totally different league. Heck, Motorstorm 2 is even below Ninja Gaiden 2 with an 8.1 out of 10 http://www.metacritic.com/g...
I really thought the graphics were great, but I just can't really get into the gameplay. Never the less, a decent title.
these games Sony can pump out. Motorstorm 2 is better then any off road racer on the 360, and its not even a AAA game according to the naysayers!!! Keep releasing masterpieces llke this Sony and I'll pick them up on day one. If this game was on the 360, the farking reviewers would be going bonkers over it. I'll be playing this game over Fable Flop 2 any day!!!!
There is actual weather this time!!! I saw rain! Ok, GT review sold me...and I kind of agree with them, this IS the game that I wish MS1 was. Still, I disagree that it is too little too late. As others point out, MS:PR really doesn't have competition and this is far better than the first game, bar none. Also, I think they have come far closer this time to approximating their target render...the lighting is almost spot on and the textures/damage/environmental effects are WAY better than the first. Adding offline splitscreen is fantastic as well. I still wish they would add a true in-car view though!
Even compared to the intricate design of GRID or Pure, Motorstorm is just the most fun you'll have with a racer. I'd rather play just the demo of Motorstorm: Pacific Rift than any other racer...including Excite Truck. I LOVE THIS GAME!
I have to admit that I was not impressed with the demo like I was with the motorstorm demo. devs need to stop releases demos of old builds of their games. I do have faith that regardless of what scores motorstorm 2 gets, its a better game in every which way to motorstorm 1
It actually looks a lot better than Motorstorm 1, now that they compared the two side by side in HD.
pre ordered already along with R2,lbp.far cry 2,cod5,socom bundle deal is a must heard great things on this game apart from server issues so the time it hits the uk it will be just fine.fallout 3 not so sure about just yet, its paid for but if the devs have been lazy arse porting this will switch to killzone 2.
wtf is AAA?
