Motorstorm: Pacific Rift is the perfect treatment for gamers who want a down-and-dirty old school racing experience. Forget about being "pure"ly ATVs, Motorstorm hits you with eight distinct vehicles classes mixed up in a cloud of exhaust fumes and controlled chaos. Pacific Rift is a marginal improvement from the original which is what you want out in a sequel. The gameplay isn't revolutionary, but it doesn't have to be. Evolution Studios had the formula nailed in the first game, now they have only expanded on it. Don't overlook Motorstorm: Pacific Rift this holiday season as it is one best pick-up-and-play games this year. Until Motorstorm 3, we wil be tearing it up in the Pacific.
