9lives: ModNation Racers Review


ModNation Racers is a wonderful continuation of the Play.Create.Share principle. The comparison (LittleBigPlanet and Mario Kart) is high, but it easily qualifies ModNation Racers next. Everything is very well-developed and invites to play in single player, online or split screen. Hours are racing, while laughing and cursing at all disposed to be removed where the game is all about - and will continue to run with the support of the community. Pity is that the loading times are a little too long. In any case, casual or hardcore, it does not matter, because ModNation Racers is awesome.


+ Pure Fun
+ Depth
+ Beautiful commentators


- Loading times
- Overview sometimes less on track-making

great score and the loading will be sorted in a patch... but like some one said this could be related to connecting to server because the servers are not online yet, anyhow no big deal the developers will sort it out but the most important is create and share and gameplay is fun going to be awsome, i was in the beta and the tools are brill plus I made awesome mods the tools are incredible...going to be spending most of my time making mods and tracks and having fun racing, see you lot in Mod spot where modders hang out :-)

Modnation Racers and LittleBigPlanet Karting Servers Shutting Down

Sony Interactive Entertainment will be shutting the servers down for two PS3 racing games in July.

Sad, hopefully they make a new Modnation racers game. wait, is it completely shutting down or can you still download tracks?

pody2198d ago

This is what I'm wondering also. There's so much quality maps available online and it would be unfortunate if people couldn't download those anymore.

Teflon022198d ago

Yeah, I didn't play much online anyways. But I always use to play local multi with my cousin and download so many amazing levels. Sadly 8 didn't get to platinum it. Had only the create trophy, level 30 and 100 races i think left. I had I believe 87 last time 8 checked lol. Might go on to see if I can get my last few lol. Remember my win ratio was decent since I did around 160 races maybe, 170 ranked

pody2197d ago

Yeah same here, but I actually jumped in not too long ago to play again and it's still holds up great for a 8 year old game. It's was a really good game when it came out and it still is.

I had some good memories playing Modnation. :( Sad to see it go, but it was inevitable.


ModNation Racers: The Forgotten Gem

There were plenty of notably excellent PlayStation 3 exclusives that were one-and-done during its long history. Games like Mag, Starhawk, Heavy Rain and LittleBigPlanet Karting were solid titles that were not given a chance to expand on their potential with sequels. Ironically, the developer of LittleBigPlanet Karting, United Front Games, had another kart racing title prior to this. Its first game, ModNation Racers, successfully implemented an aspect that wasn’t done previously and hasn’t been done since.

I loved this game, and it's a crying shame that the studio closed eliminating the possibility of a PS4/PS4 Pro Modnation game :(

Imho this is my fav kart racer. I still play Everhart now and then to this day.
Other than load times the game was excellent

danny8182467d ago

game was great. However it felt soules Mario Kart. The load times on the game for Psvita were beyond horrible

S-Word2467d ago

Sony should've kept going with this instead of turning to LittleBigPlanet Karting.
