Motorstorm Apocalypse


The Motorstorm series has always been one that I've wanted to like more than I've actually liked it. The first one looked great, but the poor handling killed it for me. While Pacific Rift's addition of some cars to the mix helped that, I still found it...

Despite some frustrating gameplay quirks, Motorstorm Apocalypse is a must-buy for series fanatics, and a must-play for newcomers because of its fast action, sharp controls, and incredible sound design. If you've tried the series in the past and just...

MotorStorm: Apocalypse PS3 Review - Speed but no acceleration


MotorStorm Apocalypse follows up Pacific Rift and the original MotorStorm on PS3. See how the latest finishes in Luke Brown's full review.

Despite the strong online component, MotorStorm: Apocalypse still doesn't do enough to stand out. There are times when you'll be awed by the spectacle of the cityscape crumbling around you, but you'll soon stop paying attention the third and fourth...

MotorStorm: Apocalypse Review


MotorStorm is one of those games that whitens the knuckles and quickens the pulse, if only because we're continually absorbed in keeping ourselves on the path. While past criticisms have involved loose control and other small gameplay issues, fans of...

MotorStorm: Apocalypse


A post-cataclysm San Francisco provides the backdrop for a so-so racing game.

The final kiss of death for Apocalypse is that the elaborate tracks are often so busy coming to pieces that it’s impossible to spot crash-inducing debris and obstacles in your path. This usually leads to sequences of repeated crashes—call it a...

MotorStorm Apocalypse Review


MotorStorm Apocalypse simply cannot seem to win. The third entry in the series has been plagued by delays due to the nature of its content and now it lands during the great PSN outage of 2011.

Great track layouts ; Four player split-screen ; Tons of customization

Inconsistent visuals ; Cut scenes

MotorStorm Apocalypse simply cannot seem to win. The third entry in the series has been plagued by delays due to the nature of its content and now it lands during the great PSN outage of 2011. It also hasn’t helped that this entry is the first title to...

MotorStorm Apocalypse Review


MotorStorm goes cataclysmic, and still manages to deliver a solid racing experience

I don't know why I still do it, but I do: My car gets wrecked; tossed around; ran over; rear-ended out of the winning spot; taken down from a qualifying spot; squashed; or flattened against a highway divider by a monster truck. However the method, I...

MotorStorm Apocalypse


With the Festival story mode complete the next port of call is in the game's multiplayer and free play modes. In Wreckreation you get to choose from such various options, from having an offline split-screen race with up to four players, or you can hit...

Edge of your seat racing; Destructive events keeps you on your toes; Challenging races

Shouldn't have bothered with the story; Linear gameplay; Initial shock has to be overcome

The many apocalyptic events in each race show off this game’s graphically prowess. At first I was a little shocked with the overall quality of this game’s graphics and presentation. The art direction has really shifted down a gear from the previous...

MotorStorm: Apocalypse Review for the PS3


The end is nigh!

Best 3D effect in a game; Spine-shattering crashes; So much chaos on-screen; Motion-comic storytelling

can distract you from the racing; …that is dry and uninteresting; Not enough tracks; Load times are too long

MotorStorm Apocalypse Review


Is Evolution's PS3 exclusive racer the perfect storm?

MotorStorm Apocalypse’s shift to the end of the world helps distil the very essence of what this series is about. Racing through the rubble is unpredictable and thrilling, but some of the rougher edges have also been amplified. Its ambition can push...

When I first bought my PS3 MotorStorm was high on my list of must-have games. Being a long-time fan of the series Rally Cross and Rallisport Challenge it was nice...

Amazing Visuals ; Solid Online Component ; Great Track Design

Only One Single-Player Mode ; Limited Track Selection ; Frustrating AI System

Product Specifications

Designed to analyze their surroundings and react in a realistic manner, the artificial intelligence in MotorStorm can adjust their speed or team up with another driver to take you out if they feel threatened. Your opponents can also locate shortcuts and adjust their aggressiveness based on your actions. As an extreme racing enthusiast, you find yourself beginning at the MotorStorm Festival for a variety of off-road events including the Grizzly, Mud Pool, and the Rockhopper. You must enter and win races to earn tickets for previously locked activities. Competitions range from similar vehicle races to odd-man-out scenarios where your opponents have semi trucks and you must beat them on a motorcycle. Each off-road transport in the game reacts to the courses differently, creating a unique ride for all vehicles. Multiplayer action and voice chat is available for up to eight players.
