MotorStorm Pacific Rift is chaotic, gritty off-road racing at its best. But there are good games that appeal to all gamers universally, and there are good games that will only appeal to fans of a particular genre. And for all the improvements that Evolution have made in track design, visual quality, frame rates, load times and offline multiplayer support, the core gameplay of Pacific Rift remains the same. While this may be enough for those who loved the first game, many will still find the game difficult and frustrating. MotorStorm Pacific Rift is a fine game, and a fitting sequel; it's just not for everyone.
