Five glaring issues that would otherwise make ModNation perfect

ModNation offers players a unique experience, creating and sharing their own personalized karts, tracks and characters. This experience is not without flaw though. The game’s power-ups, long load times, brutal difficulty and must of an online connection, can make ModNation more frustrating than it really should be.

As of right now Issue #5 is a definite if your ISP is Verizon.The others are good-shaky or so other people say in the forums...but if your ISP is Verizon you should wait for the appropriate patch to fix it.

I didn't have an issue with the difficulty and I literally just finished the career 100% coming in first in every race and completing all the challenges. I rarely had a
problem with difficulty.

Dramscus5158d ago

What a terribly stupid list.

I've not had any problems with using power up, the difficulty, the load times (which are greatly exaggerated frankly), the install which most games have, the unlock-able items (I guess thay can be a minor minor bother but um LBP has them, no every game has unlockables this guys a tool), and the online required well no just no it's not. It's required to share your creations and have new content but who expects otherwise. Does he want magic fairies to fly in and zap new tracks onto his ps3.
Just stupid.

chester5157d ago

respectfully disagree with you on a couple points. first off, the load times, at least personally, i find to be brutal for two reasons. first off, they are long. i usually count off 45 seconds between loading and pre-race. the second point on that is that the loading screen is one single fact or tip and picture that doesn't change for the entire time so it becomes a stagnant experience.
secondly, i think online is pretty much a necessity. racing people is much more fun, and this is a play.create.share. title which takes away a solid 1/3rd of this endeavor which is fun and important to keeping the game fresh.

i really enjoy the racing in the game. i think the power ups are fine and the control is fantastic. but there are a couple issues, for me at least, that keep it from being perfect.

I have this on psp and its flawless. difficulty is high up there if I had to find a gripe.

FunAndGun5157d ago

Awesome game, lots of fun. The load times do suck, but I'm still playin it!

Modnation Racers and LittleBigPlanet Karting Servers Shutting Down

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

Teflon022294d ago

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

pody2294d 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.

Teflon022294d 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

pody2293d ago

@Teflon02
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 :(

XisThatKid2563d ago (Edited 2563d ago )

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

danny8182563d ago

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