gamrTV's Chris M. Arnone shows some of the gameplay of Motorstorm: Apocalypse from the DICE Summit 2011 Game Room.
It certainly looks...different, if not particularly good.
Not really my thing.
Is that Killzone music?
There were two machines running Killzone 3 right next to me.
Bad drivers make racing games look terrible. I don't care I'm getting it, you have to have something wrong with you to dislike Motorstorm.
before any idiot claims this is just a S/S rip-off mind you this has been they've begun production of this game before they released pacific rift.
What's s/s? In all seriousness.
Split/Second But that game is nowhere near the caliber of what MotorStorm: Apoc is offering. I am very impressed. The MP looks to be amazing. It's going to have everything COD has but in a racing game. Split screen online, Perks, customizations, photo modes, replay/theater features. It also had 40+ tracks with tons of challenges, and the SP plays out with a good story progression in how the results of each game carry over to the next challenge. It's also in 3D, has amazing setpieces, awesome AI, and more destruction than any arcade racer around. They really are putting everything into this beast.
Looks really cool. I only played the first but it left a sour taste in my mouth since it had so few tracks.
I can't wait to play this game in 3D. I downloaded the trailer off of PSN and watched it in 3D and was blown away.
Why do people keep comparing this to Split Second? In SS the things you caused to happen affected one single part of the track and it was you that caused it. But you are comparing that to chasms opening up, hurricanes throwing debris everywhere, giant buildings crashing down on you, the track rising up beneath you and crossing bridges that fall apart as you drive across them. And all these events twisting the whole track as you race into something completely different. Really?
The game looks fun like the other Motorstorm games, but I wasn't too impressed with the crash collision effects when the car hit head on to a solid pillar or wall. Example is at 3:55 of the video. I hope they fix this issue.
game isnt complete yet. im pretty sure it will be better.
Cool. But the driver sucked... Lol. He wasn't there to win anyway probably.
No, I wasn't there to win. I was trying to show different aspects of the game by taking different routes. That was also my first time up to bat with a Motorstorm since the first one. Need for Speed and Gran Turismo are more my speed for racing games. Still, I came in second. The guy playing before me couldn't do better than 8th.
Looking forward to it.
This guy SUCKS ASS!!!
