Mario has finally met his match.
Over 3 years later, and I still find myself loading this game up. Whether it's to race other players online, playing up to 4 people split screen with friends at home, or racing online with a buddy on the same couch on over 2 million user created tracks, karts, and mods with a dozen people. The controls are tight and intuitive and creating your own race tracks has proven to be unbelievably addicting. (I'm still making tracks today) There's nothing like racing on a track that you're proud of building, complete with shortcuts, obstacles to avoid, and risk/reward scenarios aplenty. And for a kart racing game, the game play has never been more fair and balanced due to the players ability to earn boost that fills up a meter which you can then burn off to activate a shield to defend against oncoming offenses if you activate it with just the right timing. Anyone that's looking for a FUN game with that instant gratification feel to it, not unfamiliar to Mario kart games, only a lot better (sorry Mario) should check out this game now if you haven't yet. It's so cheap now, you can't go wrong.
AMAZING GAME FOR A RACING
This game is amazing because it is better then mario kart a little. i thot this game was dum before i try the demo then i thot im going to buy it for me ^_^ so yea this game is amazing for any type of age even for my mom likes the game my brothers,sisters, like to so im going to buy this game ^_^
Fun & Quirky
I'll start off this review with the only heavy deterrent this game has : the loading times are ridiculously long. The graphics aren't that fancy, it shouldn't take that long... but now that the considerably clumsy elephant's stumbled out the window, we can focus on the good stuff this game has to offer. The racing itself feels very fast-paced. Whether it's boosting over speed-up pads or drifting, the driving feels so alive. What's better is that you can create your own tracks/karts/mods and share them with the entire Modnation Racers online community - so if you're not the creative type, you won't be left out of the party when you download others' creations. The single player mode is pretty good fun, as well. Even after you complete races, you can go back and complete extra missions for goodies you can use to create something of your own. If you have a PS3, you should consider putting this game on your get list. Personally, I don't enjoy racing games too much, but this game was too much fun.
Its fun but not addicting....
This game at first is fun, but after awhile you just do the same thing. You beat a level go to the next one. Its one of those games when you play it time to time. One thing I thought I would like was the Track maker, but its really chessy, and the level or stage they give you is so small and skinny.
BEST ENTERTAINMENT GAME
BEST KART GAME FOR LONG TIME . DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE DEMO BUY THE GAME AND YOU SEE ALL THE MOD . I LOVE THE GAME .
LittleBigPlanet Meets Mario Kart
Over the years, many game developers have tried to capture the charm of the Mario Kart series. Some, like Crash Team Racing, have succeeded. ModNation Racers falls in the same class. But being a good kart racing game is nothing if it doesn't bring something unique, otherwise, it's just Mario Kart with different character models. ModNation Racers features the most customization options I've ever seen, allowing you to create just about every part of the gameplay in your own image and style. I mean, what other game do you know that gives you 117 different nose options? You're also able to share and download custom creations through the central hub where you can also take part in races and meet other players. Now this sounds great, but in order to enjoy this content, you're going to have to wait up to a minute for the tracks to load before you get started. But trust me, it's worth the wait. Along with a single player story, there is also local splitscreen play, quick race, and a "Mario Kart Wii"-style 2-player online multiplayer. If you're looking for a kart racing game for your PS3 but want to customize, then this game is perfect.
GREATEST RACING GAME EVER!!!!
THIS GAME IS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!! TONS OF CHARACTERS, TROPHIES, KARTS, COURCES, AND ADD ONS! THIS GAME IS WONDERFUL AND I ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE WHO LIKES TO RACE!!!!!!!!!!!
CONNECTION ISSUES - DO NOT BUY
If you're buying this game to play online, don't waste your money. At least 4/5 people have connection issues with this game that ranges anywhere from random disconnections to being almost completely unable to log-in. I've been playing games like MW3, NUNS2, MVC3, and a bunch of other online games and never had any issues. No disconnections and I rarely lag. With this game, however, it's nearly impossible to even log-in and when I'm lucky enough to get in, I get disconnected within 2-10 minutes. Same issue is experienced by 3 other people I know who bought the game. Useless..useless..useless. Also, the mods in their official forums just ignore this issue and never once addressed it. blah.
THis game is the best in cars
This games is the best in cars and this is almost mario kart but is better i recommend this games for everyone
Great.... but one thing
This is a great game but it does have one problem. The loading time takes 15+ seconds. Its an oldish game but still the loading time should be way faster!
