If you can stomach the long loading times, and you're more than happy to wait for matchmaking to be patched in the future, and if you don't mind excessive rubber-banding in your single-player modes, then ModNation Racers is for you. More discerning players may want to stick with the rental, or wait for the inevitable patches to arrive before diving in. Whether you dive or not, you really should dip your toe in the water at least. ModNation Racers does do some great things and deserves all the credit in the world, but it also deserves a healthy dose of criticism for those things it just couldn't get together properly. At the end of the day, there's no justification for a game that forces two loading screens on you before it even begins.
