MotorStorm: Pacific Rift
BUY THIS GAME
Don't listen to anything other than "buy this game" I just bought it one day ago and I have been doing nothing other than play it. I also normally don't do that. The new tracks are SICK. There are tons of ways to get around the track, just like the first motorstorm. The way you do races is organized much, much better than the first game, and you have a bigger variety of vehicles. They also added the monster truck, which is cool. Online is really fun. Also on some tracks there are areas fit only for motorcycles and ATVs and you can duck to avoid hitting trees. It doesn't happen often enough to get in the way, just a perfect amount of times. You also still use the SIXAXIS which is cool. The game obviously supports trophies and there are a TON of races to do. There are also more races other than just racing with a bunch of other drivers. There are bonuses as well if you do really well on some races. THE NEXT GAME YOU BUY FOR PS3 HAS TO BE THIS ONE! A MUST HAVE FOR YOUR COLLECTION!
This game is one of a kind! Well, besides the first one but it is much better than the first in all areas. I love the scenery of this game, it looks great and very realistic. The fact how it's all set on one island and how it comes together boogles my mind. The challenge is great but speed is just a little hard since its not all about speed its about going their route not your fastest route in my opinion. Controls on the game are very easy to learn and use and all the main buttons(R1, R2, L1, L2, X, Left stick) are where your fingers naturally are. The vehicles range from the motor bike to a rally car to a monster truck. The tracks take place in all sorts of areas from a beach to side of an erupting volcano, to the side of a mountain. Each vehicle has alot of styles and about 3 or 4 designs per style. I love Nascar but I wasn't sure how I would get along with a game like this but now I play this game more than Nascar this game is a great game and I would recommend this game to anyone who has a PS3.
Welcome to the Jungle
MotorStorm: Pacific Rift is a true racing game. It is a must have for any PS3 owner. The graphics are superb and the game play is awesome. If you are riding an ATV or a bike, you can punch people off their vehicle, but watch out, as a monster truck could obliterate you! For anybody that loves the wild, brutal racing games, this is the one for you! The only problem I have with this game is there are only about 16 maps. Weather your racing through dense jungle, burned wasteland, or a tropical mountain, you"ll never stop feeling the excitement!
just buy it
Motorstorm pacific rift is a perfect game for anybody even kids as young as 3. motorstorm 2 has an excelent track selection for the most part but they do over use the tracks in festival. the soundtrack of the game is decent but you cant really hear it while your racing because the racing sounds over power the music. it is a great party game, the festival is ok but the races do get over used as i said before but overall it is pretty fun. it is kinda of hard to get trophies but after a while you can get at least 20% if you play it alot so to rap this up its a great buy for any body UNLESS u get easily seasick o crashes are super sick
Excellent game! Must be in your ps3 collection!!!
I bought the first motorstorm the first days of my ps3 and I gotta say it blew me off. I love racing games, and this was going further with extremely good graphics and insane tracks. Well, motorstorm: pacific drift is everything but better. A blockbuster, must own for every ps3. The game is better than the first for many reasons: you have 16 different tracks, all of them are like made by the devil and drag out of hell, they are insane. You get more vehicles (they added more variety, including the crazy monstertruck), you have a much better and faster interface, you get photo mode so you can frame that unique instant of destruction! Also, the festival lasts longer, you have 4 zones (water, air, earth and fire) with 16 tickets per zone. They also added new modes, you don't only have races, but also eliminator rounds and speed. In addition, online is really easy to use. So BUY THIS GAME, FUN GUARANTEED.
Just Spectacular! Dont you miss it!!!
I am a hard core gamer, have ALL the consoles and best games, and just downloaded the demo, WOW! The game feels and looks GREAT, just as I expected. The visuals are very nice and realistic to every detail, every vehicle feels cool in its own way, just like its predecessor. Let me tell you, the first Motorstorm only had 6 tracks and still has more replayability than most games. It is like never-boring. Now imagine this one with 16 ENORMOUS beautiful and deadly tracks, spectacular and unpredictable environments, more variety of vehicles than ever, and a brutal just-perfection win-or-die-trying never-boring formula, and to top it all, YES!!!, multiplayer in-console and on-line play. I am counting the days until release date, and you should too, trust me. I bravely but surely predict it is going to be one of the top ten games this year. Want a big feel-largely-rewarded deal for your money? This is it.
Just Played the Demo
I just played the demo for this game, and i was really impressed! Motorstorm Pacific Rift is absolutely gorgeous and I love the variety of vehicles. The new monster truck really changes the game as it leaves it's trail of destruction behind, making each lap you run different each time as you now have additional obstacles you have to avoid. The environments are crazy and really make for an interesting racing experience. As I was watching the replays, my jaws literally dropped in amazement, as the graphics were so lifelike! Before I played the demo, I was going to buy Pure. But now i'm not so sure. The customization of the ATVs and insane tricks in Pure are great and all, but I think Motorstorm Pacific Rift is going to get my money. I'm not a fanboy by any means as I have both systems. However, games like Pacific Rift really show off the power of the PS3 and make me proud to be a PS3 owner!
Good game but missing what made it special
Let me start off by saying this is a great racing game. If you enjoy fast paced action with a good degree of freedom and difficulty you will love it. However, there is one major problem within Motorstorm: Pacific Rift to me. They have taken out the option of sixaxis control. It is still in the game to a degree, but not at all like the original where you could actually control the vehicle. Now it is just to steady yourself when you are about to flip. This kinda ruined the game for me in a way. The first Motorstorm was so much fun because it took advantage of not only the great PS3 graphics but also the Sixaxis that set it apart. They have added many new features in Pacific Rift that are fun, including multiplayer that was missing from the original, but to me it doesn't compare. This is still a great racing game that will not disappoint if you never used the Sixaxis feature to begin with.
Good for all!!!
This is the best game I have ever played! The overall experience is phenomenal! The selection of vehicles is superb, and the realism is amazing. I will admit, this is a semi-tough game, meaning if you don't win at games a lot, think before you buy. The graphics are again amazing. When you crash, jump, and slam into other people, its all clear and in focus. I had this game for a month, and i'm halfway through it (but that might be because I play it for 4 hours at a time!) so its lasting appeal is excellent. I really recommend this game as a perfect Christmas or birthday gift.
A MUST HAVE FOR ANYONE WITH A PS3
this game got my attention when i first saw the trailer, so i rented it and soon enough i realized this game owns all racing games. now i own it and it's awesome and really cool. online play is sweet because i love racing with anyone online. i would say this game is my new favorite racing game. but i did see a difference when comparing to burnout. the difference was that this game had the best collisions and ridiculous nitrous which i thought owned!! the places are great and the racing experience is something new. this game is next gen. racing. the graphics are the best and the vehicle selection was balanced but i wanted to see a major variety in vehicles. well, what else can i say other than, THE BEST RACING GAME OF THIS YEAR!!!!!!! buy this game because this is an absolutely solid game and i wouldn't change a thing about this game
