Evolution Studios - MotorStorm Game Review
MotorStorm is the latest off-road racing game from Evolution Studios that pushes the capabilities of the PlayStation3. Users can choose from a variety of different vehicle types, each of which have their own strengths and weaknesses on the racing course. For example, the slower trucks plow through much of what gets in their way on the course, while the agile motorcycles offer a quick response. Either way, MotorStorm offers gamers with the brutally realistic racing environment in high definition 720p. Eight different tracks offer a variety of choices while multiple routes add even more options. The tracks are long and far from boring with plenty of obstacles and excellent scenery. The SIXAXIS wireless controller works well with MotorStorm and users will find themselves deep into the action in short time. The dynamics of the vehicle are excellent even when launching off of a cliff into the main course. The Real-Time Deforming Terrain updates the terrain as each vehicle tears up the course, enabling each lap to be a little different. Even the debris that gets kicked up by the wheels sticks to the windshield and body of the vehicles. Aggressive driving by other drivers become apparent during the racing action.
Online support allows up to 12 players to join in the race. Unfortunately, offline multi-player is not supported, leaving your friends in the room out of the race. Extra engine boost provides a huge amount of power increase, yet it must be used with caution otherwise overheating will cause catastrophic damage to the vehicle. The sound tracks are wisely placed into the action and include music from Queen, Nirvana, Primal Scream, and others.
