MotorStorm: Pacific Rift â€

 

To put it mildly, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift has been one of the most genuinely exhilarating console racing experiences I have ever had, so the prospect of receiving a further dose of action in the form of DLC was one of salivating proportions

It?s fair to say that MotorStorm was one of the main reasons that led me to buying a Playstation 3 at launch. Developed by Evolution Studios, who are formerly known for the acclaimed WRC series, MotorStorm?s unveiling at E3 back in 2005 instantly...

MotorStorm Pacific Rift is is a diverse and exhilierating experience, that improves on its predecessor and really makes a name for itself against other more conventional racing titles. Fans of the genre should justifiably salivaate over this dirty...

Even more ways to display a stunning lack of common sense.

Gorgeous visuals, detailed vehicles, and a complete lack of personal safety

Crash physics are underwhelming, rubber-banding AI

It's not that other racing games aren�t as fast or as vicious, but only a select few are as crazy as Motorstorm: Pacific Rift. The racing and control is smooth and accommodating, which lets you concentrate on either avoiding exploding into a ball of...

Can someone send MotorStorm: Pacific Rift developer Evolution Studios the memo about games that don't move forward? The one that says you should always give the player some sort of reward, even (especially!) if he fails? The one that went to...

Familar, but frantic and exciting sequel lacks killer new ideas

Monster trucks and more ; Lush landscapes with new hazards ; Looks prettier

Not a completely new experience ; Laborious big rigs return ; AI gives free wins sometimes

A few more tracks, vehicle types and Race modes would have been good (we’re sure they’ll appear in future DLC), plus the ability to fully customise your vehicle instead of relying on a few skins. Still, what's there out of the box is exhilarating,...

The sequel to Sony's off-road racing brawl makes good on all the promise of the original.

Shorter load times; crazy physics detail; great course design; expanded vehicle and course list

Unforgiving crash physics; lack of race variety; solid but uninspired online play

We launched our motorcycle into a volcano, just to watch it burn.

MotorStorm: Pacific Rift is coming. We take another peek at a couple close-to-final demo builds of the game.

Honestly, there's not a whole lot we can talk about at this point without getting our hands on a near-finished build of the full game. Considering the good folks over at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe have started to talk to the press over there...

Bigger, better, louder and faster.

The online mode, although fairly straightforward, was a ton of fun in the original MotorStorm. MotorStorm: Pacific Rift really pushes the experience into the next generation, with rankings, leaderboards, stats, matchmaking, voice chat and support for...

Product Specifications

The first MotorStorm wowed fans with its heady formula of brutal, unpredictable off-road racing, festival vibes and stunning monument valley desert scenery. Motorstorm Pacific Rift takes you to a solitary tropical paradise in the Pacific Ocean, ready for a whole new take on no-holds-barred racing action through thick swamps, dense jungle, towering peaks and steaming volcanoes. Not just pretty backdrops to the action, these environments take center stage in challenging players with everything in Mother Nature's arsenal. Thick mud, tangled undergrowth, swift flowing rivers, choking volcanic clouds and searing lava pools all test the drivers to their limits and beyond. Expect a rich festival of off road racing, along with a host of game modes and rewards. It's brutal, dangerous, relentless, and unpredictable and more than a game - MotorStorm Pacific Rift is a way of life.
