The Ultimate Kart Racer Customization
ModNation Racers features extreme customisation, and as such allows each player to create their own unique racing experience with the same tools used by the development team. Begin by expressing yourself through the creation of your own Mod character and quirky kart. Starting with more or less a blank slate, players are free to change a variety of their racer's features. These range from head features and skin color, to wearable gear and attire. Customization of karts is equally deep, allowing for alteration of everything from suspension and interior, to body, wheels, decals. Finally, ModNation Racers gives players everything that they need to build the tracks of their dreams. With this functionality, known as Track Studio, players can invest minimal time and enjoy basic creating, or they can invest more time and make sure every lake, mountain, banked turn and power-up is placed perfectly. Either way the result is quick, contagious fun that can be shared through online races of up to 12 players, which can even be rated by the online community.

5.0 out of 5 stars When Mario met Sackboy... 27 May 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The 21st of May was a rather exciting day gamewise - Red Dead Redemption was finally hitting the shelves, and a kart game that followed on from Little Big Planet's 'Play Create Share' ideal was also coming out. "I'll blast through Red Dead in a couple of days" I thought, "and then I'll try out some karting!"

So, a week later and I've played 2 hours or so of RDR - partly because of that lovely spell of weather we had over the weekend, and partly because ModNation Racers has far exceeded any of my expectations and has taken up pretty much all of my gaming time! I was lucky enough to have a chance of playing the beta a few months back and was intrigued by the mixture of karting and creating, however I have to say I was a little under-awed by the karting aspect, it just didn't have that Mario Kart spark, yet I couldn't put my finger on it. However I'm happy to say in the full release racing is pretty much on a par with the obvious influence that is Mario Kart, I don't know what they did to make it better, but they did. What takes this game to the next level, above and beyond Mario Kart, is the HD graphics and creation tools at your disposal.

So, firstly the driving - as mentioned, influence is heavily drawn from Mario Kart. Controls are simple - accelerate, brake and drift, you're either going flat out or you're stationary because you've hit a wall/been blown up/fallen off a bridge (this is no driving simulator!) Drifting around corners builds up a power boost bar that can be used to either go faster (by holding down L1), or as a shield to protect from attacks (by pressing circle).

5.0 out of 5 stars The best FUN racer on PS3 11 July 2010
By Bisi
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Hello everybody,

ModNation Racers is for sure a game that I can recommend!

The gameplay is very good. The track- and character-editors are easy to handle and they add a lot of additional fun to the game. (I must admit that I might have spent more time modding my karts than racing so far!) ;-)

Another great thing about this game is that anybody can play! It doesn't matter if you are 6 or 90 years old. This is a game for the whole family!! There is a great variety in the tracks and if you hit the boost button, you can "feel" the speed!

For me the only negative points are the facts that the gamepad cannot be configured in any combination you want and the handling of extra items is a bit more tricky compared to Mario Kart.

To make it short: This game is for sure the best FUN racer on PS3 so far!

Have FUN!
Bisi

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as much fun since MarioKart 64 21 May 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When I purchased this game I didn't expect too much... I expected restricted customisation and a fun racer...

Well I was pleasantly surprised... I have not enjoyed a cart racer since Mario Kart 64... It is fast paced... all the specs for the cars are the same so it really is about tactical and technical ability... and also having an eye for a short cut...

The career is good and gets you used to the control system... but online is where it comes to life... 12 player races are extremely fun... and the addition of split screen if fun for friends at home... the connection can be temperamental but I am sure this will be ironed out... The steering feels a bit off at first but you very quickly adjust and the physics are good considering it is just as cart racer...

For me all of this is almost enough... but then comes the customisable element... this is where the game goes from good fun racer to a possible classic...

At first glance it looks simplistic and as though there would be limited freedom... but even after 3 hours use I have made 2 characters and 2 karts and 1 track... all to a relative standard... and after using for a bit I can already see the possibilities... it is customisable beyond belief... and I did shy away from the track editor thinking I wouldn't bother as it could be overly complicated... but the game prompted me to use it and it is so very easy and fun... I can see this having the same longevity as little big planet...

For anyone who loves being creative and customisation or just loves racing and just wants to have a bit of fun, I would say get this game...

5.0 out of 5 stars modnation racer 2 July 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is one of the best racers around. The gameplay is very technical aswell as a bit cartoony. It has virtually unlimited creative developed within the game. You can customise characters, karts and create your own tracks. The different things you can make is astounding. The track creater most of all. Truely amazing. Online play is good and the ability to upload and download tracks, karts and characters is a very good touch aswell as people being able to give feedback on these things. Campain is not great but does unlock other accessories to create stuff with and the cutscenes are amusing. The only and major problem with this game is loading time. Sometimes you dont want to commit suicide but the wait is well worth it. Also the are in the process of making a patch for it so all good. This game is a must have for any ps3 owner, even if (like me) your not a great fan of racers.
