About MotorStorm Apocalypse

The MotorStorm outfit, having done dust-bowls and jungles, has packed bags and shipped out. Their destination: a coastal city that's in throes of a natural catastrophe - and what better place to kick-start another MotorStorm festival? Set over a three day period, MotorStorm Apocalypse's backdrop is rapidly disintegrating - You are there when it happens, and this is survival racing! Throughout the game the city will be ripped to pieces, in real-time, as you race. Routes will be affected, as will our emergent gameplay. Buggies using collapsing walls as half-pipes. Big Rigs on the rooftops of skyscrapers as they collapse. Superbikes gunning into the basements of enormous rifts. Supercars flicking on their headlights to barrel through the subways and sewers. You've never raced on the edge of insanity like this before.

Summary

Stimulating, frustrating and visually spectacular, MotorStorm: Apocalypse takes arcade racing to a whole new thrilling level.

We like

  • Fast-paced, aggressive races really get the blood pumping
  • The carnage around you is quite spectacular
  • Rewarding multiplayer levelling system

We dislike

  • Lighter vehicles spin-out too easily
  • Inconsistent A.I. Sometimes they are too good, others times they barely try
  • The frustration of crashing frequently and being placed in last position.

If you’ve ever played a videogame that has given you the urge to throw your controller through your T.V. screen with rage, then beware: MotorStorm: Apocalypse has the power to turn that compulsion into reality. However, it’s testament to its exhilarating gameplay that no matter how frustrated you get with crashing your vehicle – and you will, a lot - you’ll still be compelled to keep coming back for mor...
