Product Description

MotorStorm is the world's most brutal off-road racing event, where the goal is to win at all costs. Choose from seven vehicle types, from dirt bikes to big rigs, and destroy anything that gets in your way in a sprint to the finish. With "real-time deforming terrain" the terrain gets torn up with each passing vehicle, causing each lap to be different. Advanced particle effects cause debris and muck to stick to each vehicle.

Features:

  • Smash your opponents and view Hollywood-style crash sequences
  • Online Multiplayer allows for off-road racing with up to 15 vehicles competing
  • Visuals feature dynamic range lighting, motion blur and depth of fields
  • AI opponents simulate human traits, like showing off, attacking and taunting

3.0 out of 5 stars GREAT GAME, BUT WON'T STAND THE TEST OF TIME March 30, 2007
By T.A.
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
THIS REVIEW COMES FROM SOMEONE WHO HAS NOT ONLY COMPLETED, BUT WON 1ST PLACE IN 30 RACES ON MOTORSTORM. So I guess you can say I've played it a lot.

I've read quite a few of the other reviews so far, and most of them are written by people who just got the game and haven't really played it through yet, I would imagine. I've played it at least a hundred times, and I've got a different view point. I'll try to keep it concise, and I'll discuss the game's shortcomings first.

#1: THE SAME TRACKS OVER AND OVER AGAIN...After 30+ races, the tracks go from repetitive to out-right boring. I'm sorry, but there are only 7 or 8 tracks to race on. The change? except for a few of the races,you are forced to use a different vehicle each time. The level 1 and 2 races are fun, but by the time you get to the level 3 races, your opponents spend the entire race pushing you off cliffs and into rock formations, and everyone's vehicles are faster than yours. I really enjoy 2 or 3 of the tracks, but the others aren't to my liking, and I find myself cursing at the game as it forces me to run those tracks repeatedly.

#2: BLAZE YOUR OWN TRAIL? Hardly. Other reviewers have said that you don't have to follow the track; that you can go your own way. Not true. Each track has a "high route" atop cliffs, plateaus and mesas (for rally cars and motorcycles) a "middle route" across bridges, ramps, rocks and gravel (for any vehicle but a big rig) and "the low road" through the dirt and mud underneath all the bridges and ramps (for the mudpluggers and big rigs). At certain junctures of the track, you can choose one of two or three of these routes. During most of the race, though, you are bound to the route you have chosen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Graphics and Cool Vehicle Variety March 30, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Motorstorm gives you a variety of interesting vehicles racing on the same muddy track. Race a motorcycle against a large truck, and see who comes out on top!

The graphics in this game are just stunning. The details in the canyon ridges, the scrubs and shrubs along the path, the tiny details on the vehicles, are are rendered in amazing detail. We sat and watched MANY crahes just to marvel at how well done the physics were, how the tiny pieces of the vehicle sprang apart and bounded along the path.

The sound is a heavy metal rock beat. This will be great if you love this kind of music - or will get quickly very annoying if you don't. The solution is of course just to turn down the music and play your own if you're not into it. Problem solved pretty quickly.

Gameplay is fascinating because of the wide variety of vehicles involved. Most games have buggies against buggies, or racecars against racecars. In this one you can choose motorcycles, ATVs, buggies, race cars, trucks, jeeps, and a variety of other vehicles. The tracks are set up with a high, medium and low path. The heavier vehicles can plow through the mud and take the easier route. The lighter vehicles need to skirt along the canyon edges, taking advantage of their small size.

This is super in theory - but in practice there are only a small number of courses, and each type of vehicle really only does well on its own set track. So unlike some racing games where there are a variety of paths and options you can take for victory, for here it's more like there are interweaving tracks and you have to stay on "yours" if you want to win. It's still fun of course, but it could have been much better by really giving you multiple options.

4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely fun and too short March 9, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I first saw this game at a local Sony Style store where a customer was playing it on the store's demo PS3. I was really impressed. A couple weeks later I found the teaser version on the PS Network and downloaded it. It was really a lot of fun. So I bought the game.

MotoStorm is a one-of-a-kind racer that gives you all the highs you want from a game racer. As many have commented out, the best part are the crashes... esp. when they are catastrophic. The explosions are gorgeously rendered in real time, as is the rest of the hi-def graphics. The speed -- and the associated adrenaline rush -- are exactly what a gamer wants in a game. In the fun arena, no other game beats this one.

Unfortunately the game is ultimately a short one. With only eight tracks and one single-player mode, it's bound to get boring. I'm still enjoying the solo experience but I can imagine very soon I'll start playing online. But I doubt I'll be hooked for too long, unlike, say, NFS Carbon. The mitigating aspect is, of course, I can always pick up this game any time and have a blast (pun intended) with it. I just wish the designers had made this a better, deeper game.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Everyone who says this game sucks without giving it any credit is definitely and without a doubt a microsoft xbox360 fan boy and basically just jelous because Motorstorm is truely amazing, and in my opinion takes graphics and physics to a completely different level. The truck handles awesome and the controls are wonderful. The graphics are beyond describable if you put this game on an HDTV. Microsoft fan boys will always continue to bash on PS3. Just ignore them. this game is awesome. I think this is the first game that shows the potential power of PS3. Buy it and enjoy!!!
