Motorstorm Pacific Rift

Anybody else got it?

I must say mr and the missus are enjoying this - it still has the Motorstorm feel but is such an improvment; Bigger variation of levels, terrain + vehicles. When I'm watching someone else play, I can't help but get distracted by the amazing graphics all around. Intro movie is beautiful too

Enjoying this much more than Resistance 2; played it briefly yesterday, not that impressed. Even though the gfx are improved, I think it's lost some of the core elements that made Resistance: FOM so great. It doesn't even have normal co-op mode

Yeah I have it, I liked it but.... I hate racing games with a passion, I don't play much PS3, GTA is the only good thing for PS3 atm .

Na but I did just play the demo... Did look nice but don't think I can bring myself to buy it. Got bored of the first one so quickly.

I'm playing Portal at the moment. For £3.49 it's great.

I played Motorstorm a fair bit, I think I pretty much completed it. I used to come back to it now and again and have a blast, but it became boring on the same rocky surface.

There's so much more to this one with the 4 different area's. You really have to choose your paths more carefully depending on your vehicle choice, and the different ways they've implemented water to cool the boost is great.

I wasn't expecting much different to Motorstorm tbh, but the whole game just seems to be a much faster pace, more exiting and with the great new features and jaw dropping graphics; I'm pretty pleased with it

I've seen that Mirrors Edge dirt cheap in some places. I tend to be suspicious of games when they drop to 20 quid within a month. E.g Kate & Lynch, saw it for 17 quid in ASDA, so downloaded a demo 1st and thought it was appalling.

@Pat - Not played it online yet. My connection is quite poor and I find everyone else is teleporting around the place....
