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!
My new favorite kart racer.
Mariokart was my first ever video game. So I was soon addicted to the kart-racing genre. I heard about a game called ModNation Racers from my friend. And I just has to go buy it. This game is mindblowingly fantastic. Why? It brings that Playstation sense of creativity to the mix. You can make your own tracks with little to no limitations on what you can do. You can play others too (a la Littlebigplanet). YOu can make your own character, download other peoples, buy DLC ones. As for the gameplay, it's a typical kart racer. it's got powerups, collectables, etc. My ONE problem is how much DLC there is. I wish there was a version with most of it. Like Borderlands had. But still, don't let that stop you from buying the game.
i saw some (alot) of vids of this on youtube and i have to say i love this game is it awesome get it!
