Headhunter AI

Motor Storm, the "most aticcipated game for the PS3," or "the killer app" is finally out for the PS3. Actually it's a hit and run app.

Let's start with the graphics. The graphics are good, really good. They detail the vhieicles the player uses, detailed tracks, and slow motion crashes show the PS3's graphical engine.

The gameplay is one of MotorStorm's downfall. The creaters left out most common game modes and options including time trial and in-game tuning.

To top it off, there's only eight race tracks. You'll proably thinkinig, "Well there should be more tracks in Carrer mode," well then you thought wrong.

Now for the AI. The AI plays like Gran Turismo. Your rivals on the track don't race as aggresively as Burnout does and you can oftenly beat them as easily.

In the end, Motor Storm is a step in the right direction but this title will only impress you for a short time. It's good to rent this title to show off to your friends. After that, you might as well return this title and move on with your life.

I give MotorStorm a 3/5 and a 7/10.

The game looks great but I had a heck of a time controlling it, seems like the only thing the game was made for was looking at cool wrecks.

I've never been to good at those games though.

Here's what I have to say: Better luck next time, Motor Storm.
