MotorStorm is certainly one of Sony’s big successes of this generation, and it’s certainly been one of our favourite series here at TSA. Sure, we may not have been blown away by the series’ second offering but we’ve always been fans deep down and it’s certainly got a strong following amongst the community. In fact, aside from Killzone, I think it probably has our strongest following.
With all of that said let’s turn to the third PS3 instalment in Evolution’s arcade racing franchise. It may be the end of the world but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. In fact we gave it an 8/10, so certainly a strong showing from the game. As well as the score we had this to say:
MotorStorm has come just at the right time: the PS3 needed a burst of frantic energy and Apocalypse certainly delivers. It’s not perfect, but it represents pure arcade racing with a central device that never feels tired – the earthquake scenario managing to stretch itself over forty different events and still feel fresh at the very end, when the game turns everything up to eleven.
By then, as the city falls to pieces around you, you’ll be glad for the final credits – this isn’t for the faint hearted, but if you’re tough enough and reckon you can tame a superbike as a tornado whips around you, we’ll see you out there…
So were we right? Have you been out there in the earthquake torn wastelands? Or did you quickly cast the game aside? Why not jot down your thoughts and let everyone know? Just head over to the forums and leave us your thoughts on the game.
Whilst I’m not going to discount longer reviews, please remember that the aim is for short, snappy opinions. More than that I simply don’t have the time to wade through longer reviews, so if you want to have your opinion included in the verdict post try to keep it short.
Once you’ve written your review make sure you give it a score on the Buy It, Bargain Bin It, Rent It, Avoid It scale. Remember, if you want your score and opinion included in Monday’s verdict post you need to have it done by Sunday afternoon, otherwise I’ll have written it and you’ll be left out in the cold.
