MotorStorm: Apocalypse Review
i think title of the industries most overrated game would have to go to this!
i loved the original, pacific rift was even better!
this though you could not pay me 50M bucks to waste my time on!
the controls are f*cked, the cars control a mix between sim and arcade, crashes are impossible to avoid, its so unbalanced you can be in front by almost a lap, crash once and come last!
3D support was pretty disappointing too, pacific 3D rift was 10 times better!
then what was suppose to be the games strong point, the falling buildings end up being its down point!
allot of the time buildings will come down willy nilly, the camera will take control away to watch the building, then give it back to you 2 milli seconds before you slam into a wall!
so you caused me to crash, i lost a race, and now i have to redo the race because of your f*ck up?
allot of the jumps are poorly placed too, almost every time i hit a ramp it threw me into a obstacle.
how am i suppose to know which ramp will hurl me into a sign, and which one wont?
it is nigh on impossible to do a single race without crashing!
worst racing game ive played in a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time!
I only ever played the demos of MStorm and Pacific Rift, but I played them dozens, if not hundreds of times each, and I don't recall going a single race without crashing or overboosting and blowing whatever vehicle I was racing to smithereens. Control of the vehicles was always a blend of the more intricate on ground control of a sim, with a very arcadey acceleration and airborne system, and unless I'm very much mistaken the series has been hammered since Day 1 because of the balancing issues and rubber band AI.
Adding to that, and it was always advertised that the destruction would be random, adding a real element of surprise into the races, and I remember seeing quite a few videos in which the camera pulled away from the race to show off the destruction and the player stuffing up because of it. I guess what I'm raving about is that you really should have expected most of the things that you're complaining about.
You always have a problem with something, that's no surprise.
First I believe it had to do something with Uncharted 2's controls saying it was bad and clunky..
You had some good positive posts but it seems to be more negative than positive these past few days..
If it'll make you feel better I'll bake a cake for you. 😉

ben, seriously how old are you?
for once can you answer a question without insulting me?
i feel like im talking to a freaking preschooler!
O, and while were on the subject i take medication daily.
horse radish and garlic, vitamin B, and cod liver and oil to starve off colds.
Great game. I'm actually glad they added the story mode. It might not be the greatest but who doesn't like some kind of story to immerse yourself into?
I love racers and I love rally. And no game does off road rally better than Motorstorm!
