MotorStorm PR: Gameplay videos

MotorStorm PR: Gameplay videos

I know, we are very late with these videos, but better late than never! Our good friend DjMizuhara sent us these three long gameplay videos of Motorstorm Pacific Rift. The game is still as fun as its excellent (after all the patches at least) ancestor, but somehow also fails to go beyond it. Still very recommended, especially if you never got to play the first one.

This game is strictly for fans of off road racing. I just couldn't get into it.

Broman I don't agree this game appeals to a bunch of different people...people who don't even like racers are playing the crap out of this game, it's also much better than PURE!!!

Where did I bash PURE? PURE is a good game...I never bashed it at all...I just said Motorstorm 2 is better. And as far as I'm concerned that's not bashing.

PURE and Motorstorm 2 are like chalk and cheese: PURE does customizable quad bikes and stunts, while motorstorm does straight arcade racing.

Not a valid comparison really. I think finding out what has changed between M-PR and the original would be far more constructive.

As it stands, I don't really like either (and I like driving games ALOT).

PURE is the best.

Never understood the appeal of Motorstorm. When the PS3 was announced together with so-called gameplay movies of Motorstorm and Killzone 2, I was very impressed. Afterwards it became clear it was all CGI. So I played Motorstorm in a gameshop, and I was really dissappointed. Graphics were not even close to the trailer and the gameplay was just arcade. Now, Killzone 2 is coming very soon, and I thought because of the long development time, it would be using the super power of the cell processors and look like the CGI trailer. It comes somewhere close to the CGI, but still I'm dissappointed in what I have seen so far. I don't have anything against the PS3, as I own one and love the console. But when is the PS3 going to show it's power like Sony promised from the start?

you expect the ps3 to deliver CGi quality graphics?...your expectations set too high i think.

Killzone 2 has already according to many, offer the best graphics of any console games to date. Next year, there's Heavy Rain and later on God of War III. Perhaps not CGI quality but as good as this generation of console can manage.

Sega Rally looks better, at least in the sand/mud/water pools areas.. And no im not being sarcastic lol, Sega Rally is a damn nice lookin game, and it looks like the track deformation is a bit too shallow in this game.

But then again, the tracks are wide open here, so i guess Motorstorm 2 wins the visual contest due to that.

Motorstorm 2 is an absolute corker, if you liked the first game, you'd definitely love this even more! The graphics are vastly superior and much more detailed. The loading times have been reduced alot, overall it's just amazing; more tracks more terrains, more challenges AND splitscreen, what more could you ask? (replays?) :)p

By the way, it also has Photo Mode, so you can now pause the game and really go to town and scrutinise all the details to your hearts content and save them too!

half agree, although M1 had the better mud/track deformation imo. M2 seems to have toned it down a bit, although i havnt seen all the tracks so who knows. sega rally's mud was rediculous tho, the snow in particular looked like you was driving through whipped cream. lol

what i liked about M1 tho was that the trucks would make huge ditches in the mud, and if you where a bike it'd actually effect your handling trying to drive over all the tracks that had been left.

sega rally has its terrific unmatched terrain deformation and iq going for it (4AA) and locked 30fps but only a handful of racers onscreen Motorstorm has 16 vehicles(destructible) massive multipath environments, interactive foliage, tons of destructible objects, great lighting and shadowing, physics based water effects ( you can knock trackside objects into a stream and watch it float away downstream its awesome) volumetric lighting on the sun (rays of light filter through objects on the skyline), vast on track geometry ( amount of trees and foliage really blew me away ). Motorstorm does so much more so looking how it does when its got all this going on is incredible.

The mud deformation is exactly the same in Pacific Rift as in the original, but there are just less muddy areas.
Have to agree that Sega rally's deformation had a much bigger impact on the gameplay, in Motorstorm it's basically just a visual add-on.
Too bad the physics in Sega Rally were just not my taste

From arcade racing game I expect a lot of action and adrenaline. First Motorstorm give me that and besides awesome graphic, real interaction with the enviroment, superb gameplay and REAL feel of rivalisation, HARDCORE rivalisation (console AI rocks). Real next-gen game. After this, for example PGR's felt so boring (races are boring, there is almost nothing happening) and last gen (even PGR's graphic looked awful, so last gen, only in HD). Only Motorstorm can do that.
And the best thing is that Pacific Rift is better in every aspect. From gameplay, console AI (real HARDCORE), interaction with enviroment, damage visualisation, etc. to graphic (from all racers only GT5:P and Wipeout HD look better). Simply Awesome!
