MotorStorm RC: Review

MotorStormRC_feature

 

Evolution Studios, the creators of MotorStorm and, well, aside from that and WRC, not much else.  But that’s OK, because they are good at it, there isn’t much need to go into other things right now, right?

MotorStorm RC, although still a racing game, is a large departure from anything they have done previously.  While their other racing games have always been from traditional camera angles; Hood, in-car, rear, etc.  This game is seen entirely from a isometric angle.  Harking in games of old like Super Off-Road, and closer to the fantastic Rock and Roll Racing for the SNES.

So, with the change in play style, camera, and the shrinking of the MotorStorm franchise into a 5-inch screen (or, whatever size your TV is if you are playing on the PS3.) Does Evolution Studios pull it off?

MotorStorm: Arctic Ridge (PSP) Reviewed

motorstorm-arctic-edge-20090602040322082_640wThe Original Motorstorm for the Playstation 3 had a rough road heading to it’s release date.  With footage from the 2005 E3 that looked simply too good to be true (which it was..) and being pushed from it’s original release date a couple times.  It was finally released in March of ‘07 to positive reviews, even though it never reached the graphical quality of the “tech demo” that was shown in 2005, it was still a very good looking game that featured some pretty fun and intense driving and a game play style of it’s own.

After a “somewhat” sequel (Pacific Rift.) This PSP version was announced, and after some delay…finally released for you’re playing pleasure.  Put into the hands of a different developer for the PSP, Motorstorm has made a transition from console to handheld like Tim Robbins from Shawshank Redemption (Crawled thru a quarter mile of shit and came out clean on the other side!.) The other developer in charge is BigBig Studio and they should be proud of what they did with this port.
