ModNation Racers (PS3)
Advantages: create tracks, characters, cars. Online and offline splitscreen. Experience and levels
Disadvantages: Not the best gameplay.
Modnation racers is a great new racing game that has just been released not too long ago. It is a fun racing game that allows the user to create their own content for the game.
The main flaw with this game in my opinion is the racing itself. I dont like the way the cars drive much. I like the weapon system though I think there should have been a few more weapons. Career mode is quite good. There are alot of races. around 26 I think. Each race has 3 challenges. One challenge which must be complete to get to the next race. This is usually finish 3rd though sometimes you have to finish 1st to advance. Other challenges involve getting a certain amount of drift points or taking down a certain amount of racers. All round I found it pretty challenging compared to other games such as mario kart and sonic and sega all stars which are maybe slightly to easy.
The game also allows users to create track, mods(characters) and karts. With karts you select a premade body of which there are lots of around 50 possibly more. You can give the car a paint job and put stickers,decals and logo's on the car. You can also add accessories such as aerials and change the seats,wheels and engine. All cars handle and drive the same though there is an option which allows you to change the car slightly. The first thing you can change is drift and handling. The better the drift the worse the handling for example. If you put drift to +1 handling would be at -1 or If you put handling to +2 then drift would be -2. The other thing you can change between is handling and acceleration. This can be changed at any time and on any vehicle.
I have realy looked at making mods much so I will tell you as much as I can. You can change the skin of your character choosing between things such as lizard skin, furry skin and different colours. There are lots of clothing to choose from as well. There are many hats, gloves, shirts, boots and more.
Making tracks is quite easy but If theres a feature your particularly looking for it can take ages to find. Once you have used the track maker for a couple of hours and got used to it you will be fine but to start with its hard to find exactly what you want such as tunnels, widening track etc. You can bank the road, create shortcuts, place weapons and obstacles.
After you have made your creations you can publish them online anyone that looks at your creation, downloads it or races with it online earns you experience. You can look at the leader boards for highest create experience and compare yourself to your friends.
Online races are fairly limited. You can choose between xp race and casual race. In xp races you either do a single race or a series race. Xp races can contain user track but not ai and cannot be played with local splitscreen. Casual races on the other hand can be hosted or joined. They can be played on local splitscreen and the hots gets to choose the track,number of laps and various other options. Ai are also included though no experience can be earned in this race. There is also offline splitscreen for up to 4 players.
The graphics are great the weapon effects look realy good and tracks with loose props realy show of the graphics when you fire a weapon such as the maxed out sonic weapon which sends crates flying everywhere.
Overall this is a realy fun game though I would have preferred mario kart wii with a track editor.
Summary: Very fun game that everyone should try at least once.
