About ModNation Racers

ModNation Racers is a thoroughly fresh take on classic kart racing that empowers the player to personalize their entire game. Players can express themselves by creating their own Mod character, styling their own racing kart and even building -- in just minutes -- an imaginative track that can be shared with the rest of the PlayStation community via the free PlayStation Network service. The easy-to-use editing studio tools make this creative process accessible to players of all levels. Not feeling creative? ModNation Racers presents a humorous story with a wealth of pre-made characters, karts, tracks and challenges for all players.

Every kart racer from this point forth needs a track editor, enough said.

We like

  • The intoxicating, chaotic kart racing formula
  • The incredibly deep track editing tools
  • Taking the race online

We dislike

  • Pimping our avatar and kart for no other reason than to look good
  • Not having enough options to tweak the performance of our kart
  • Long loading times, particularly in career mode
