The track creation tools are brilliant and for many gamers will justify the price tag on their own. With some neat sharing functionality there's every chance excellent, new, free content will be appearing for some time. If you're more interested in the actual karting experience, though, you might find ModNation to be ever so slightly lacking in personality. It's good fun with mates and has a surprising amount of depth, but lacks the magic that would have elevated it to a must own title."
