PS3

Sony has finally announced the future release (most likely Q4 2008) of Motorstorm 2, the sequel of the excellent but very rushed Motorstorm. The game will this time be played on an island, promising a bigger variety of environments. The first teaser video is available, unfortunately 100% CG.

now why dont they mix up the environments instead of using djungle once, desert the other and so on..

It would be great to ride on snow, djungle, desert in one game.. When only using one, the game gets quite booring..

I got the first one with my PS3 and wasn't all that impressed. Though I'm not an offroad racing fan to begin with, the game is seriously lacking in terms of content. It was fun for an hour or two but that's it.

It has great visuals though and I'm sure the sequel will too. They really should put in a cockpit view this time around as I felt the sense of speed and immersion could really benefit from this.

Lame trailer though, I don't particularly care for CG trailers.

Always the same with sony trailers, all CG and no gameplay, I'm really starting to hate that, IMO if you wanna show a game then show the freakin game and not some pre-rendered awesome looking CG flick.

Maybe they arent done with the updated engine, new levels, models...etc. to have in-game gameplay.

CGI just shows you the mood of it, how it is gonna be played, or just to show it is coming.

Considering MotorStorm 2 takes place in an island now, maybe they aren't done with the environment models.
If they do show that and it is medicore, you will say "uh this is sucks".
So easy way out to get you excited is to show you a CGI of the game, the new environment...etc. until they are ready to show you the gameplay.

There's a lot of things they could improve for this one. More camera viewpoints, more / better racing options (different modes basically), a better sense of speed...

Goes for a lot of developers this generation. In fact what company making a racing game didn't release a CG video first.

GT5, PGR4, Forza 2 and so on all had CG trailers.

Can't wait, IGN reporting 4 player split-screen, monster trucks and destructable environment.

Jigen: True, but MS1 is a lot faster and better overall with the camera really close.

Guys, CG trailers used to show off a game have existed since the PS1 era. Heck, even before then there were a few animated cut scenes to show off cartridge games.

Everything is great but if they plan to skimp on the content on disc and charge us ridiculous amounts for new tracks and vehicles, just like with MS1, they can kiss one sale here goodbye.

And before thinking "lol, no, you'll buy it either way!" Let me tell you I didn't buy MS1 just because of that.
I don't like being taxed to get what I already should have.

16 tracks they say.................BluRay, use it.
25 tracks at least or forget it.

Looks good, just like MS1 CG trailer, I'm sure they'll come close to the feel of the trailer with the real thing.

and we all know the first one looked and did what the CGI video showed , right....

there should be a law , that if the game doesn't look and feels and does what the CGI video showed then the company gets sued and the game price drops 50% off for false advertising.

People who complain about it being CG: Stfu.

First one might not have matched the trailer graphically but it gave you an idea of what the game was going for and yes when the full game launched, it matched what the CG set up: Muddy, wreckless crazy, fast paced racing game.

The first one had a cgi trailer that let down pretty much everyone who was anticipating the original, so it's appropriate to complain about this as well
