ModNation Racers: Road Trip - PS Vita
ModNation Racers is a decent vita launch title.
ModNation Racers, Is a decent game for vita. If you a fan of the other ModNation Racers then your gonna like this one. This the first in the series I've played and It reminds me of mario cart with a great customization and a amazing track editor. The track editor is just play awesome and would keep any would be creator busy for hours. The game is a basic racer with boost and power ups and you race for tokens which you use for unlocking new items(Randomly) for creating stuff. The only downsides I've seen in this game is the low resolution screen elements which look scaled up and the sound setup is plain and everything is all the same volume even when using head phones and messing with the sound sliders. That being said if your a fan of "Cart" games and racing in general this would be a great game to add to your collection, If your not its still a great way to waste time for 3 to 20mins a pop.
Thers a reason this game is $30. For the 1st time no online that is very disapointing news. Even the psp version had online wich makes no sense bcus Vita is so powerful. Good Gameplay. Okay Graphics. But nothing spectatcular like MNR PS3 version. It doesnt even have story line like PS3 or PSP version after you finish a race you just go to the next one. Its very bland Gary is funny and i'd love to hear him say something like "There's a reason you have a gas peddle on your kart...Now use IT!!!" But at least you cant download any PS3 creation ever made wich is fun plus you can make your own creation and share them. Not to mention the 4 new weapons. But it would be alot more fun if you can show your skills/kart/mod online with other racers. It seems like they rushed this game and didnt take the time to add aditional stuff to it. Thers not even DLC for this game even psp/ps3 had dlc and the menu is touch only and not very responsive at all....This is a BIG disapiontment!!!! I Really Give It A 6.5/10
another part of the game
This game is a pretty great racing game I've played the psp and PS3 versions a lot and they are really good . this game reminds me of mario kart because well its like a cartoony racing game thats a creative adventure as well I suppose ... I like the unique characters and cool new race maps too . it seems like a really cool game . : )
ModNation Racers just gets better.
ModNation Racers Road Trip will be on its best.The series was a great success in the PS3 and PSP, and will be a bigger success in the vita!!!!The game looked boring to me at first [since all Youtube captured was footage of creating a track], but now the gameplay I've seen looks great.
The best part is that you could connect with the Ps3 and it's creations online.You get to play over 2 million creations and tracks that were made in the PSP and PS3 and will be more with the PS Vita!!
I'm totally getting this with Little Big Planet, Little Deviants and Uncharted.
Can be fun for a few days
It is a fun racing game for a few days but gets old quick. The building of tracks and mods are ok but can get old quickly too.
Great game but lacks multiplayer
The ability to create your own tracks is awesome. I'm sure the game will be fun but with no modspot or multiplayer its a big let down for the Vita version.
Mario kart, LBP, and foursquare=good, not great
it's good but could've been better. for those looking for "new" material, they added a function similar to the foursquare iPhone app to earn you in-game money. they also added "postcards" you make with photos taken on the vita's camera to send to PSN friends who own the game (which means no one i know) . it's the same thing as the other two games in the series other than that though. the game could've been better if they added more "new" material to it.
Going to be great, but......
When I first heard about this I was so looking forward to it. But, I was just reading that there will be no online multi-player. It will support ad hoc play (people right by you with there handheld) but no online is a joke. The PSP version had it, and of course the PS3 version did as well. I guess that is why it was dropped to $30 from $40. I guess they had to rush the game so that must by why it was cut. (you can still download tracks and ect.., just not play online) I am not sure where I stand on buying yet, because it still looks good.
Getting a vita? Start of with this, lbp,and ld
Game is awesome. If you're getting a ps vita, get little big planet, little deviants, and this! You'll be completly satisfied!
Very fun... Very PSP
Okay so I can honestly say when I put in MNR in my psvita I didn't set it down for a while. It's almost just as great as the PS3 MNR game. Here is my problem. Its basically a really good psp game. I didn't buy a psp, I bought a vita. Now on the other side of the fence, it's lasting appeal is pretty darn good. It keeps me playing. This was my second game I purchased. If you want awesome graphics up to date gameplay for the vita, buy UNCHARTED. If your a big fan of MNR it's def. worth it, as far as new vita features, it lacks majorly.
