Overall a good game for Vita with a couple of caveats,
This review is from: ModNation Racers: Road Trip (Video Game)
If you played the PS3 version then you already know what MNR RT is about. If you haven't and wish to try before you buy, then get the PS3 demo. It gives a glimpse into the EXTENSIVE kart, Mod and track customization/modification features of this game. In my case I spend more time creating rather than racing because I find it highly entertaining in its own right.
The game is not difficult and the karts handle a little "loose" so you never feel like you're playing a racing simulator. The weapons and boosts insert a strategic element to the races. Being in first place for that last turn is no guarantee for victory but the AI beats you in away that is not cheap unlike Mario Kart's blue shell.
The graphics are crisp and colorful but the speed at which the races happen and the frequent changing of standings will keep you too busy to appreciate it. I think the game could use a camera option like Gran Turismo. IMO the default position is too low on the ground and makes the power ups and shortcuts difficult to see.
There is no online multiplayer at the moment but the developer promised a patch for peer to peer.
The big negative about this game is the long loading time prior to a race. I timed it and it averages 40-45 seconds. The PS3 version has the same issue, however, knowing that you are loading customized karts and characters every time you race makes it somewhat tolerable.

The developers didn't PROMISE an online multiplayer update, they just said they were looking into it. Hopefully this means they're working on it but they didn't wanna make any promises just in case.
