Find out if Sony's newest franchise has legs or if simply falls short of classic status in ZTGD's full review of MotorStorm for the PlayStation 3.
And i love it.
Yeah the offline does fall a short of what i was hoping for but it will still give me countless hours of fun.
Online is extremly sweet and just a blast when you start bashing on others as try to school them.
I do wish that the staging area was a little more like RFOM tho.
but i think they can improve this in the future.
I've read enough reviews about Motor Storm and the main complaint is the lack of content, mainly the amount of gameplay modes. Only 2 modes, regular offline race and online race.
It's very odd that they didn't add any other racing options like the very standard time trail.
This is one of those games that handled and played like a 9, but everything else subtracted the score down to an 8.
Yeah that sound`s right on the money. Maybe they will add some more modes via the PSN, because i think the game needs it, by the sound of it.
Hm...well I think they wanted to get it as good as possible. But in an interview they said DC would be new tracks, cars and NEW MODES...
it is possible to add extra modes through DC (downloadable content) like Sony is doing for Resistence (new multiplayer modes). Def the best racer that PS3 has to offer and it makes me psyched knowing that next gen Wipeout is using this engine. I think this release of Motostorm establishes the base for future releases.
I picked this up yesterday and while it could have more features the core of the game (graphics, physics) is absolutely AAA.
It's a 8.0 and down title. If they update it and add more feature then it might be a AAA title. It sure has AAA graphics.
This is one of the major problems with downloadable content in my opinion. The company packs in as few features as possible so they can later sell you the content they left out.
In this case I think that it's really backfired on them. This is a game that should be scoring upper 8's/lower 9's but is getting upper 7's/lower 8's instead because it is missing basic modes that are expected in all driving games.
Personally, I'm playing wait and see on this game. If the modes are offered as free content then I may pick it up. If I can only get these modes by buying content then I am walking away from what I consider to be a broken franchise.
Me being a 360 owner hate paying for extra stuff later for games. Its kind of ridiculous the kind of pricing they set out. Not only do you pick up an incomplete game for 60$, but then they come in a month or two later and want to charge 20$ for 5 extra maps or modes. ALA GRAW. Its a joke.
And as a 360 owner we pay to play the dam thing $5 a month whether we play or not. They need a Fair an Flexible plan like Sprint. LOL!! Serious...
More tracks,Options under Menu Screen ,Cars and much more...at end of the video interview motorstorm developer confirms it.
The WOW! Moments are definitely AAA. When you are racing at the bottom of a gorge and you see a string of buggies fly over head, some of them crashing into pieces......There's nothing like it. It all feels and looks so unscripted and real. I agree that the lack of features is what keeps this game from being the total package. However, I find the game well worth a purchase because it's so fresh and real.
i think this game is going to do real good in sales for the ps3.
I agree 100% about the AI. Since when did AI have to be so mind numbingly tough? in some races it feels like all the other drivers against you. One racer will hit the brakes right in front of you and slow you down just (so it seems) so that the racers can stay ahead.
1 player is tight online takes a long time to start a race but once u do loads and loads of fun. More modes yea but for now im good Burnout 5 will be out soon.
