by omega124 A Pretty Good Racing Game
ModNation Racers is the perfect game for racing fans. In ModNation Racers, you can create your own 'Mod' (character) Kart, and Track. You can race through over 25 tracks, play online with up to 6 people, customize your own driver and Kart, download Mods and Karts, and lots more. The graphics are meant to look kind of cartoony, so the graphics are pretty good. The sound is okay, with your Mod yelling as you do tricks in the air, the sound effects of the power ups you get. The gameplay is pretty similar to other racing games, such as Need for Speed and Midnight Club, so racing fans will enjoy this game. Overall, ModNation Racers is a perfect game for racing fans.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Daftendirekted Not really the best
This game was ok. But not at all great. I think the racing was ok, but there were a couple of things I didn't like: The powerups were very stupid, as no car would have missles, and the controls weren't good in my opinion. The main problem for me was using the R Button to accelerate, although there were other annoying things that irritated me, like the drift control. The whole thing felt unfamiliar compared to other racing games. Maybe I'm just brain dead but I couldn't get the track builder to work. Other wise it was an ok game. The mod and kart builder were really fun, and there are all sorts of ways to customize your things! The sound and graphics were ok, and the little cartoons between career races were kind of funny. I don't think a hardcore gamer, and some casual gamers would like it,but it is perfect for kid gamers. Depending wether you are a kid, casual, or hardcore gamer, I think you would like one of these- 1st kids 3rd Hardcore!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Game Pro100 A fun kart title that will change racing games forever
This is a fun title that anyone can pick up and learn the ropes fast enough, but is not easy to beat. This is not a game that you beat in one sitting, no way. Even though the whole game is based around cartoon racing, this game would appeal to all ages and talent. This game gives you many medals and rewards to achieve, which give a challenge to players. This is a very good, but common type of racing game in JUST the racing aspect of the game, what ISNT common is that you and your friend can both have it but if someone played both of the games the only thing that would be the same is the music, interface and the title. This game is all but totally changeable and customizable. Now, the story line isn't much to talk about, but it is a fun addition to this already great game, judging that must racing type games don't even have a story line, this one is very good. This is just about it except, that this game is worth buying for sure.

I played this game once on the PS3 and realized I just had to get it. However I made the mistake of buying it for PSP expecting it to be like the PS3 version but it wasn't. Ignoring that, this is a really fun racing game with nice customization, powerups, and tracks. Plus you can create your own tracks and use tracks that other people made which is a lot of fun. I had a lot of fun with this game, until I beat it and it just wasn't very fun anymore. I wish the game had a little more lasting appeal but for a PSP game it lasted for a pretty good amount of time. Had I not played the PS3 game and seen how awesome that was I would have given this a 10, but a 9 is just fine. If you have a Ps3 then buy the Ps3 version over this version because this game is extremely awesome on the Ps3 and just awesome on the PSP. Overall this is a very good kart racing game and I would recommend it to most people, just not hardcore gamers.
Rated 5 out of 10 by never_enough_time_on_my_hands Creative Yes; Racer No
i bought this game earlier today, because the character and vehicle customization drew me in. ONE THING EVERY BODY SHOULD KNOW this game is no where near as good as the ps3 version, my ps3 owner friend bought the ps3 version while I, a ps3 and psp owner who is on a tight budget settled for this, we played them at the same time and while at the place in the career mode, he unlocked FAR more customization items than mine even had available. now obviously the psp version cant possibly compete with its console version, but the gameplay was different too, i far i could tell (i spent most of the time playing the psp version). I must give the developer credit for such a well customizable game, but the AI for the drivers is far too competitive, i felt like i was being teamed up on time and again. and the other drivers were REALLY skilled, more skilled than i am anyway, and they get smarter as each race goes by. please please don't do what i did. buy the ps3 version; definitely worth it. i am very disappointed that a handheld adaptation of a great ps3 game could suffer so much in gameplay and customization.
Rated 0 out of 10 by tepa_boy625(PS3 online user) This Game Is AWESOME!!!
well i just got Little Big Planet GOTY for the PS3 and it came with modnation beta so I tried it out and this game is going to be awesome, if you like Little Big Planet and MarioKart Wii then trust me you are going to LOVE this game, because you could create, share, and race online not to mention that you can also customize your driver and make costumes for them to. I love the new features this game has and if want to try this game before you by the real one then i would suggest you get Little Big Planet GOTY and trust me you will have so much fun playing with this game on PS# that you probably won't even be able put the control down, well anyways I'm DEFINETLY getting this game, ENJOY!!! and add me if you have a PS3 because when it comes out this is all I will be playing.

When I started playing this game I was simply amazed by the availability of its customization options. I was also astounded by the interface between players across online. The game features all of the options any artist ( or anybody ) could dream of. The game features 28 great already playable tracks and many that you can download from other people from online as well as the option to customize and create your own track. You can also customize and create your own mods ( drivers ) and karts. The game also features the availabilty to play against others online and between you and your friends by yourselves. This games also features much more than just racing and customization; while racing you have challanges you can complete to unlock more options for customization of mods and for karts. You also have grudge challenges, these are similar to boss battles in which you must beat an elite racer ( a racer that is better than the average opponent ) who if you beat, you get the pink slip to their mod and kart. You also have modjobs ( achievements similar to the ps3's trophies ) which also give you the chance to add to your collection of mod and kart comization items and give an extra flair to the game. Lastly, the game features a storyline that is outragously funny without using any profain language. I recomend this game to anyone who wants a good laugh and a good time.
Rated 7 out of 10 by zterps mod nation is really good for the psp
mod nation has quickly became the sony version of mario kart, its basically a mix between mario kart and lego racers, this game allows you to create you're own kart and you're own character. I don't know if it was just me but the track creator wasnt that great i could only get it to be a short circle track and was able to drop some props onto it. this game does has a pretty nice story/career mode which kept me entertained for a while. this game is great to pick up and play for 15-30 mins while on the road. i would rate this game as controls: 7/10 story: 6/10 and the rest you can see above the review
Rated 0 out of 10 by loveless_117 this game is sweet!
i watched the BTS (behind the scenes) of Modnation Racers and personally, i think this game is the best i have ever seen. i like the way you get to customize your characters, karts, and the ability to create your very own track. when i heard it was coming out for the PSP, i almost fell out of my seat. i wanted to say "thank you, god, for making a sweet game for the PSP." it has the creativity of LittleBIGPlanet and the fun driving of Mario Kart. is this the Mario Kart killer? i heard someone ask while narrating the game. i say that this game is better than mario kart.

If you like to race, create, share and use your brain to the max, then this is your game. i play the psp demo version and now i can't wait to have it in my hands. The graphics look perfect for a psp, the sound goes exellent with this type of fun game, the playability is better then mario kart. Now the best part creating your own character, kart and track it was very easy and it have a ton of easy tools to create with. This game is the biggest hit since little big planet. Score 9.5 out of 10
