Love it / Hate it,
This review is from: MotorStorm (PS3) (Video Game)
Ok the graphics are amazing and sound track is excellent. The feel and environment of the game are bril. The gameplay; sometimes I'm puching the air with excitement at having won a thrilling race, other times I want to kick my PS3 across the room and break stuff after having a hard fought race victory snatched from me at the final corner. The game is no simulator, its pure arcade. When playing computer opponents the racers are all attached to an elastic band which means the racers in the front go slower and the racers behind go faster; catchup. This can make entertaining duels, on the other hand it gives the computer license to cheat big time, especially on the later races. Whether you win or loose a race is usually down to your position on this 'elastic band' in the final 10 seconds of the race. On line the game is great (once you get into a game- the lobby area is weak), but you will be racing against people who play the game 24/7 and are thus very very hard to beat. A better ranking system or ladder would have been nice.
