Gamereactor.de: The level creation tools are the greatest ever, but the controls and the driving don't feel quite right. Modnation Racers fails to topple Mario as the king of Kart racing.
I thought the controls in the beta felt really good, easy to pick up and play, but more to learn and skills to learn if you want - unless they have changed for the worse since the beta
that i know what websites look for hits and lie and nitpick to lower ps3's scores.. before i clicked on this i knew it was gonna be lower than an 8.. not surprised when i see this.. One thing i'm sure of.. my and my gf and friends are gonna play this A LOT. A Mario Kart Next Gen game? what is not to like? I'm sure if Mario was driving these carts no site would hesitate to give it 10's, but since is a ps3 game.. let's look dissect the game pixel by pixel and if everything is great let's just say that the controllers feel weird..
Yep, that`s typically how it goes. God of War 3 gets docked down for "not revolutionizing anything." Yet Halo gets praised for having "the same winning formula." Funny how that works.
i have been on this from 2005 i believe or 2004... y do they hate PS3 is always i ask. i mean perhaps its a right score but heavy rain got 6/10 from 2 websites for no reason :S thanks
4/10? Or something ridiculous like that.
or is it perhaps that gamereactor are just very strict? i see the same old people are still going on about this conspiracy against sony. leave it out. anyway, i know i will be enjoying this game, i dont need reviews to tel me otherwise....and i certainly dont feel the need to throw myself into sonys defence because of one harsh review
I swear to god these European reviewers have such weird tastes and standards. I think the only thing they give high marks for are FPS / Halo-clone games.
N4PS3G doing his job as usual, well at least didn't edited an article to make it a Bad PS3 Article... Anyways, Day One, ModNation Racers FTW!!!
I too thought the controls were perfect. Don't know what all the complaining is about. From my impressions with the beta and reading reviews is that the big gripe with the game is load times. Yet that is still a trivial problem to me. Reviewers just looking to bring another game down is all.
the beta was was fun, pick up and play, but wont be as epic as the legendary mario kart
Im sure they can get a patch in to tweak the load times and the controls a bit.But so far ive seen the game get quit a few 9s and 8s. Also if Mario kart got reviewed now im sure it would not score as high as MNR.Expectations have increased quit a bit this gen.
When the demo hits PSN on Tuesday I'll know what to think of this game. I can bear the loading times and you can create so that an already above 8 in my books. Now I only need to find out how it plays...
a ps3 demo hits on tues? ive heard about the psp demo, but no word on a ps3 demo. i hope youre right.
Well the article doesn't say for what platform thou :( http://www.gametrailers.com...

I liked the controls in the BETA and i've heard they've improved. All the other reviews mentioned it handles really well. Oh well guess you can't please everyone.
nope, you can't.
Mario kart is loved because it is mario. It's easy and fun to drive as well. But it's not hard, MR requires more skillz on the track.
meh these guys just wanted mario kart with creation tools and since to me its better than the mario kart series or recent times. I see it as a compliment to the game that its not mario kart like. Funny thing is if it copied mario kart racing style and weapons then they would blast the game for being a carbon copy but since it did its own thing they blast it for not being like mario kart. the only flaw I see in the game is the load times and I can deal with that. Some people won't be pleased unless it has mario in the name.
I guess this isnt the mario Kart killer it was supposed to be.
How did i know you were going to say something along those lines... I'm actually miss Cleo's dad...
You must be a miss Cleo, I had no idea he was going to say that.
Well I'm not so certain about that. Modnation indeed surpasses mario Kart in every aspect. Even if you base on this review, the reviewer did not even give valid points other than complaining about controls and functions which involved into frustration because of his lack of capabilities. BTW, I bet a million of developers could have make a game to totally destroy mario kart. However, that wouldn't be much of an accomplishment would it now? A real driving simulation is what we talking about! I also hope that gamerector starts to employ someone who knows how to play the game then review it.
And I'm sure Alan Wake wasn't the graphics killer it was supposed to be. Troll harder
Michael Pachter is Ms. Cleo's Dad...lol
The amount of BS that comes out of your mouth with each post you make just blows my mind.
The controls is the last thing that anyone should complain, or perhaps should never complaint. It was the easiest to a grip on, and you must be controlling with your foot or your tooth if you think it was difficult.
I can;t wait for this game, it is getting good reviews and I think the controls are just something you master in the long run, no matter how different they are.
ill be grabbing it real quick
like I said yesterday, when going against long time beloved franchise like MK, hint of bias will be very present in its review. I will enjoy this more than MK because of the editor tools alone.
MAN SERIOUSLY do you ever stop? you post the lowest scores for ps3 games all the time,dude get a life and stop spending your time scrounging the net for low ps3 game scores
and how is different with 360 bashing articles or low scores?!
LOL I agree. Get a life N4PS3!
I didn't notice that Sagetech, thanks for that.
let him continue. he really isn't harming anyone but himself if he has a grudge against the ps3. just pity the poor fellow. personally, I pity all fanboys of all consoles. they are missing some great games because of a silly rivalry in which no fanboy will truly win because they will gain nothing from it.
right when it compared it to mario kart racing. I hate it when reviewers do that! judge the game on it's own merits, don't compare it to another game. that goes for all games on all consoles.
m.n. is what mario kart should be. i'm done with the same stale, recycled tracks and cheap gameplay. but the next mario kart will get a 10 for exactly those reasons. the media bias and double standards are so clear that helen keller can see them.
