MotorStorm for PlayStation 3 Review

It doesn’t help that there’s so little to do in the game overall. All Motorstorm offers is a kiddie-pool-shallow single-player mode and online racing. The single-player mode offers up a series of event tickets. These tickets open up races to take part in, and how you place in each race determines how many points you earn to spend on more tickets. You keep doing this until you’ve unlocked all the races, and, well, that’s it.

Well GameSpot has done an intensive review of MotorStorm on the PS3 and honestly it doesn’t come up very well.

To sum it all up in a nutshell the graphics are great and the online 12 player multiplayer portion is a ton of fun but really that is where it ends. The single player is boring and you cannot play offline multiplayer.

There are 8 tracks and once you have found the best line for your vehicle around a track the single player portion becomes boring. There really isn’t much to it and since this was one of the most anticipated PS3 games receiving a 7.9 is quite shocking….

They gave it a 6 for value as well which I presume does not include the initial R6300 you paid for the PS3 in the first place.

Come on Sony you need to pick up the quality now urgently.

[Edit]It has been brought to my attention that IGN had already reviewed this game and they rated it a lot higher. In the interests of fair play you can check the IGN review through the link below as well… They rated it as a 8.9 which is an awesome score and they seemed to have really enjoyed it…. So go and check both the reviews and decide for yourself.

MotorStorm lives and thrives on the moments when you’re right in the middle of a pack of vehicles, everyone pushing each other towards the cliff sides and you’re doing all you can just to survive. There are more “Oh $#@&” moments in MotorStorm than any other game around, and no matter how many laps around the same track you’ve made, you’ll constantly see new crashes and vehicles careening to their death.

    Why only post a bad review? Motorstorm received a mixture from bad to excellent reviews. IGN gave it a 8.9.

    I never saw the IGN review :)….. They reviewed it before I started this site so it was not on the front screen when I was reading up on the latest info…..

    I was about to update this entry with theirs as well…

    Thanks for the heads up

    Not to start an argument here, but something I noticed…

    Today was my first time on this site, but it seems like most of the articles are very “anti PS3”. A lot of sarcasm mixed in the articles as well.

    There is a lot of negative PS3 articles out there and I am trying to get an even mixture of the articles.

    I have tried to evenly distribute articles between the Xbox 360 and the PS3 and then am trying to give an unbiased review of the articles that I get my information from…

    Thanks for the comments I will take them to mind….
