The PSN was down for a while so reminders might be necessary.
For instance, the PlayStation Blog reminds you that MotorStorm: Apocalypse is awesome fun when experienced online; the high-octane racer came out on May 3 and features 40 chaotic levels and 13 vehicle classes in the multiplayer portion. Evolution Studios game director Matt Southern sheds more light on the competitive insanity:
"MotorStorm Apocalypse online multiplayer (part of a mode we call Wreckreation) offers many hours of gameplay and progression and is as feature-rich as we could possibly make it. Every powerslide, every bit of airtime, every ram, every finishing position (not just first!) wins you ‘chips’, and winning chips lets you progress through 80 ranks.
Rewards will absolutely cascade at you when you start moving through those ranks. New vehicle shapes, new vehicle parts like wheels, spoilers, graphics, decals and paint jobs are all unlocked with each rank. This of course means that you can drive a customized vehicle that shows at a glance how much progress you have made and how good you are at the game. You also unlock new player icons that do the same thing."
And then there's the betting, which we think adds a whole new level of strategy. We praise the online multiplayer in our review , which only went live yesterday because when the game arrived, the Network was down. …that was unfortunate because too many people are missing out.
