Weak

Too arcade-ish - built for the kiddies

Another reviewer said it best, when he/she referred to how you can't even see what is coming, so you don't know if you are going the right way, or in a good direction..... and also, with the things unfolding to make the roads breakup etc, it makes many crashes unavoidable.... and this all leads to one things - WAY TOO MANY CRASHES!!!

That's my beef. I want a game that allows for skill, not some mindless kids game that no matter how brainless or smart you are, the outcome is almost always going to be the same.

You will crash and crash, and crash some more, and then somehow in the last lap, you are able to catch up and pass everyone, and have a shot at 1st place. Typical arcade gaming, at it's worst.

The action and scenery and ideas are all great, and there is a TON of potential..... but whoever thinks it's a good idea to WASTE all of this on the child-like silliness that the game amounts to should be fired - immediately.

And the AI has been bad through the whole series.... all the other racers will focus on YOU, and attempt to make you crash, even if it's suicidal for them. Now that might seem "radical" if you are a nine year old, who doesn't know any better, but what kind of logic is it for every other racer to be making suicide runs at you, to try to take you out?

The game has a ton of great things, but they all are wasted by the foolishness that continues throughout the series of MS games.

What a waste!

I enjoyed the second one the most. This game kinda got boring in the story mode. The graphics were amazing as usual but again, I liked just racing without a unecessary storyline.

All the past motorstorms have been great games and this one took it to a new level, it put in track changers which made online and story allot more interesting. It brought things from tornadoes to earthquakes to buildings failing to storms, but the same thing happens every time you replay a race map so it kinda takes the thrill out of it. 8 out of 10 for another good racing game and a nice world ending try..
