Motorstorm is a Racing game available on the PS3.
We have our reporters and community keeping an eye on Motor Storm for you, and we'll keep you up to date with the latest developments as they happen.
Here's what I drew with my mouse after playing Motorstorm. I hope you like my video game reviews that are not hand drawn - but written one mouse stroke at a time.
I eventually Motorstorm loaded and I got to play. And I had a really good time. I have to admit to being a very addictive gamer. I have a really hard time gaging a game's replayability because I'll seriously replay any game with an ounce of fun in it again and again... or so I thought.
After a mesmerising first experience of PS3 racing, my head may have been spinning from the death defying terrain, variety of vehicles and magical dirt deformation, but I was sure this was something I wanted to do again (and again and again). Motorstorm thankfully went on to out-last the year and is the next of my sleeper hits of 2007.
The first cut is the deepest or so Rod Stewart would have us believe. Whilst this has long proven to be true of girlfriends, alcohol and fist-fights, we now need to add a raft of audio visual experiences to the list. Not least of which is that first play magic of a new wave of consoles. This is the moment of culmination when the white coated lab-dreams of priestly developers in Sony's high tower finally sits beneath our TV. Although easily poo-poo'd by those more rock n' roll than us, this is a moment as full and memorable as any first kiss, drink or blow (umm - punch).
Under pressure to provide a launch title, Evolution Studios managed to pull an innovative racing experience out of the bag. Although initially a little light on options, subsequent downloadable content (some free and some at additional cost) has made this an exhilarating racing experience.
Motorstorm sits towards the more fantastical end of the racing spectrum, although delivers this with realistic racing physics. It impresses by pitting motorbikes, cars, jeeps, trucks and big rigs against each other on the same track. But these tracks have been cleverly designed to provide an optimal route for each type of vehicle.
