GamerVision: Motorstorm: Pacific Rift Review

Motorstorm: Pacific Rift improves on many of its predecessor's shortcomings without losing any of what worked so well the first time around. In addition to the visual treats it offers, there's enough speed, competition, and, yes, strategy, to keep players coming back for more insane, off-road action. It's not a perfect racing package, by any means, and there are certainly deeper driving games on the market, but when it comes to speed, no other current game can touch Motorstorm: Pacific Rift.

If you have a high threshold for frustration, a love of speed and crashes and an interest in testing your reflexes and hand-eye coordination, then Motorstorm: Pacific Rift is exactly what you want it to be.

I'll check it out. I'm one of those late adopters of the PS3, so I only have 8 games so far. Racing isn't really my thing... will this not matter with this game?

ToastyMcNibbles3656d ago

well i wouldnt recommend buying it if youre not into racing but i recommend at least renting it...its a brutal off road racer and theres nothing more fun than seeing bodys and vehicle parts flying over your head at the beginning of a race...that and the game is pure eyecandy

I dont understand why its frustrating. Its certainly challenging.

I've heard reviewers complain if you crash right near the end you go back to 7th or 8th.

Well Deeeeeer. You cant wipeout on the last corner and expect to win. Jeeze. If you want to be competitive in this game, keep the crashes to a minimum. Is that so unusual? I thought that applied to just about every form of racing, except maybe Mariokart, where a lightening and a star can put you from last to first in a half a lap.
