3.0 out of 5 stars Amazing graphics and fun to play...until you reach level 3!, 15 Mar 2008
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: MotorStorm (PS3) (Video Game)
Here is what happens with this game: the first couple of days I thought it was excellent, the graphics were unbelievable and it was really fun to play. But then the issues begin. First, the tracks start repeating themselves way too much; the concept of the game is that the tracks have different paths you can take, and some work for some vehicles and not others. But the biggest issue with this game is how ridiculous gameplay gets when you reach level 3. While before this point, your opponents would try to make you crash, it was all within reason, and they were still behaving in a way geared towards winning the race. In Level 3, all your opponents will try to make you crash no matter what. I even saw that when I am in third, the racer that is in second will slow down until I get near and try to push me off the track. Absolutely ridiculous! It would have been much better if in order to increase the difficulty they had used trickier tracks, but it seems that this was too much work!

Another problem with this game is that you cannot race against a friend, unless you do it online. I believe that getting a split screen for two players could not have been all that difficult, so I am not sure what they were thinking. On the plus side, the online play is fun though and since the game was bundled with the PS3, there are a lot of opponents online ready to battle. As I mentioned, the graphics are outstanding, and it is fun to see the crashes, with people flying through the air. The fact that the vehicle retains the damage until you destroy it is another big plus. As to gameplay, the way in which the different vehicles react to the commands is very realistic. This provides for a lot of entertainment, since you will have to get proficient at handling bikes, ATVs, buggies, rally cars, mud pluggers, racing trucks and rig trucks. Also, the fact that you will need to figure out which route to take with each of these, adds an element of fun to the action.

I am confident that we will see a MotorStorm 2 game in the near future, and I hope that it addresses the issues that made the first version only an OK game for me, since the potential is definitely there.
