Motorstorm: Pacific Rift (2008)


The problem for Evolution Studios was that the handling and sense of weight and inertia in the first Motorstorm was perfect. They’ve tweaked the handling considerably for this pretty sequel and… broken it. None of the vehicles now feel right, none of them handle predictably and they all feel like helium-filled clown cars where hitting a blade of grass sends your steel steed bouncing in the air and hitting anything bigger (including other vehicles) results in your car exploding. Despite this major, and eventually game-breaking, problem, the game is still absolutely thrilling to play and highly satisfying to win but there will come a point where the frustration outweighs the fun by too big a factor.
