It's a fun enough game, but I just cannot get over the ridiculously long loading times. It destroys the pick-up-and-play factor.
Most of the time you are just in one play game... eiether online racing or campaign or just creating stuff. it's really not that bad. I thought they were horrible at first, by the sounds of Reviews and fanboy banter but they really arent that bad. really solid game and it's amazingly fun.
For a current generation game that also enforces a mandatory install, they are very slow to be honest. It's said there will soon be a patch to solve it, though.
Sorry Sevir04 but when you spend 15-20 minutes out of a 2 hours play session on loading screens, it is bad. With that said, love the game though, but they need to fix this, until then, Blur it is for me.
yeah i got the game too but i hate the loading time i hope they patch it up soon i'll just play red dead redemption until then
you dont have the game if you call the load times ridiculously long. they're nowhere as bad as people are saying.
agreed. The only load that's a bother is the double load up when you first start the game. After that it's fairly standard. It only causes problems if you accidentally leave a mode and need to go back in.
I have it, and I respectfully disagree. The load times are retarded, played it once since I got is and have not touched it since because of the load times. I was switching to blur on my Xbox in between loads.
It's all true, the game is awesome, the load times are long, and the first patch is said to fix this issue.
You have to admire some of the things people have made already, it's very easy wiling away your time just browsing. Shame the single player component is comparatively weak.
I doubt even mario Karts single player had a narritive for the campaign. I dont even think you played the game, because it's really pretty neat. each race has objectives and tokens and even little events within the races after completing certain criterieas Like unlocking grudge matches. it's fun and the comercials and such they have after every race is just Grade A comedy.
single play was fun and funny...its also ridiculously hard later on to get all objectives along with finishing first, but when you do manage to do so, you really get this feeling of accomplishment because although it is hard, its not impossible...except the one where you have to trigger a slammy thing on an opponent, thats just random luck if you pull that off
I think it's got an awesome and very in depth career mode. Some of the challenges are a bit tough, and the enemie ai gets pretty insane near the end but it's easy to got through.
It's trying to be like LittleBigPlanet, but can.t
Made by the same people isn't it?
Made by United Front.
No MNR is made by United Front and LBP is Media Molecule
haters gonna hate
It's called the Play, Create, Share initiative...
I love racing game I love Play, Create, Share MNR = Awesome IMO Love this game
play create share
The mod capabilities are awesome in this game, but Blur is a much better Racer and more fun.
friend of mine picked it up and then returned it after a couple days. said it was no good, i think sega all stars racing is a much better game than this! especially for sega fans, its a very enjoyable kart racer. im putting it up there with mario kart even.
I bought it and will keep it forever. Your friend is probably narrow minded. It's a totally innovative game. If your not creative or you don't like variety however it's not the games fault.
well, i doubt it. he picked up red dead redemption and loved that one. weve been playing games since the days of atari, so im sure we are much more experienced that you when it comes to games. i know a good game when i see one and this is just another weak ripoff/ at least all stars racing does it right. its about fun, not how much time you can spend tweaking out your avatar, you loser! your comment was kinda weak. if anything, you sound like the narrow minded one here.
@snake Amazing the irony of you making fun of what he enjoys, and insulting him and then calling him narrow minded. Wow you actually played on an atari back in the day, congratulations so did i and countless others, you want a cookie for being special mr experienced gamer? For a guy that dealt with atari ect whose games had non existent customization options, i would think you being an actual old school gamer, you would appreciate being able to customize and tailor your specific avatar and kart to your own unique tastes much more than a newer gamer would. This leads me to believe 1 of 3 things, 1st your trolling or lying. 2 your the unimaginative fps/tps drone that only plays shooters. 3. see part 2 but action adventure instead. Now since you didn't even bother playing it your buddy did, you have nothing in the way of a valid opinion to offer anybody. So you should leave discussion of said game to people that actually have played it. The only issue i have is the annoying load times.
Although I really liked that game, I cannot say it is better, especially since the single player is super short, and online blows b/c the host can just quit the race whenever and the game ends. The tracks were awesome tho, and the super powerups were really cool(although rare and only given when you are losing). The other game modes were lacking...the missions were ok, but the battle mode was really weak, king of the hill was just ok, knockout was cool, but i wish it was done per lap instead of every 15seconds. Modnation kart control is a lot better, probably the best in the kart racing genre...sonic karts all had different ratings, but as you could see online, the guys w/ better control seemed to run the game b/c the tracks had some serious turns pretty much nonstop(freaking monkeyball maps)
I disagree I played on sega stars and it was rubbish, MNR is even better than mario cart once you mod your cart, character and track and get online the fun is just too much!!
If you loved mario kart you will love this game. A 12 man series onlinenis adrenaline pumping fun let me tell ya.
AI makes the game kinda meh. Mod stuff is the only thing that is enticing tbh
The racing avenue is mediocre, but being able to customize your own tracks and share them over the interweb and allowing others to mess around with your creations is where the fun is at.
I dont care about the review scores, since everyone of them gets minus for the loading. Everybody should just play the demo and get a feel for it themself. So I finally bought this game, I couldn't wait any longer! When you play a demo 30-40 times, it's about time to get the real game :) The only demo i've played as much or more, is the Resi 5 demo. And me and my brother both have probably logged inn over 100 hours in that game.
first off, no one asked you so i dont see where you get off talking your nonsense. second of all you need to get ur facts straight. this douche was the one calling people narrow minded because they didnt care for the game. you talk [email protected] about people having opinions and then you try and slam others for having them? what kind of moronic hipocrite are you? i have played the demo and know all about this game and its a kinda weak like you, so get off your high horse! its ok, you dont have to cry because people dont care for your game! let me get you and your other name a tissue. you talk about trolling, but then you use multiple names to attack. what a pathetic person you are. nice try too you moron, you werent even born yet when most of us were playing colecovisions and ataris! youre just a little newbie, now get lost because im done schooling you boy. class dismissed!
I tried the demo yesterday, can't say I liked it. The track editor is excellent, but as for the racing, it seems to feel totally mediocre, nothing like what I got out of Crash Team Racing, the controls were too floaty, the boosting is FAR too easy and I have to admit, I didn't feel like I was taking part of anything special. I'll rent it and see if it comes up any better for me.
The controls can be adjusted to be less stuffy and floaty, for better handling. And you raced in the DEMO! It didn't even have 1/5 of the content in the beta. You guys really should give this game some slack. The campaign with its multitiered objectives and criteria grudge match challenges make this game skip much better than Mario Kart. Every game has a learning curve , if you give this game a little time then you'll find there is plenty of oodles of fun to be had with this. Don't ever judge a game on its demo, because it doesn't do it justice.
Better than Mario Kart. This game is a must buy.
