And 16 tracks revealed.

Badlands: “A giant track, racing at the feet of a giant cinder cone, Badlands has a name that’s perfectly descriptive. Wait until you see the enormous active crater you need to jump over, or the blind, sheer precipices you need to tear round at high speed if you’re to have any chance of winning. And let’s not get into the collapsed tunnels and the huge canyon jump that crosses the track 75 feet in the air. These are MotorStorm lands. These are Badlands.”

Beachcomber: “The black sand is evidence of the awesome power of nature, created by lava flowing into the ocean which explodes as it is supercooled by the water. The WWII airbase and the unexploded bombs are evidence of the awesome destructive power of man. The sheer carnage created when these are combined is evidence of the awesome power of the MotorStorm. Let battle commence!”

Caldera Ridge: “The race organizers looked long and hard to find some driveable routes here, but in the end decided it’d be more fun driving vehicles over the edge of an enormous crater and barrelling out-of-control down a near-vertical slope. And that’s exactly why the race organizers don’t get invited to make race tracks for anyone else. Ever.”

Cascade Falls: “Dense jungle, thick with haze, gives way to wide-open plateaus and rickety scaffold. The tropical setting makes for a fascinating blend of beauty and danger – much like my ex-wife. The key to success is to keep it honest – don’t take any unnecessary risks, and don’t get caught making out behind the start gantry.”

Colossus Canyon: “This track has it all – beautiful forest, vibrant fauna, and a picturesque mountain stream that courses through a narrow gorge, over brook and water-meadow, and plummets over an enormous waterfall. Let’s face it; if you’re only going to accidentally plummet over one giant precipice in your MotorStorm career, this is the one to do it on. Today is a good day to fly.”

Kanaloa Bay: “Sun-kissed, secluded, sandy, and slightly more treacherous than its good looks first suggest, Kanaloa Bay is a great track to be a spectator at. It’s an awesome beach party with a welcome smattering of vehicular carnage running through it. But beware the dark territory beyond the lagoon – space gets real tight, real quick in that steamy jungle stretch.”

Mudslide: “The clue’s largely in the title: Mudslide is like one of those crazy rides you get at water parks, except with mud instead of water. Still, there’s plenty of slip-slidey action to engage in, with high routes available for those of you without the tires to tackle the mud.”

Paradise Beach: “Paradise Beach was perfect. Clear skies, gentle surf, warm water. It was a small town, and the living was good. Was, that is, until 30 years ago when the fire-God Pele cruised into town in his fiery hotrod of molten death, and literally tore up the strip. Now all that remains is dust and bones. Welcome to Paradise.”

Rain God Spires: “A humid, slippery, unfeasibly dangerous track set at the summit of a towering cathedral amongst heavy, pendulous tropical clouds. With immense slick precipices over immense drop-offs, Rain God brings hell to the Heavens and provides one of the Festival’s most dangerous and deadly roller-coaster rides.”

Razorback: “The Daddy. Mud, dirt, flora, caves, rock, water. Deadly drop-offs, dangerous jumps, spectacular falls and fast-flowing rivers. This is the big one – the whole MotorStorm ethos showcased in a single, epic track. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, your time to shine is now.”

Riptide: “The crowd-pleaser down on the beach, Riptide is the unholy offspring of MotoX and MotorStorm. From MotoX it has inherited ramps, big jumps, whoops, rollers, tight banked turns and technical hairpins, and from MotorStorm its blue eyes, cute little button nose and sandy complexion.”

Scorched: “Fire, steam, lava, craters – Scorched is about as far away from the golden beaches and cool blue ocean as possible. The heat and dust make a real mess of your engine, and the lava will make a real mess of you. Once you’re out of the barren lands, you may think you’ve escaped unharmed, but the thick forested area on the back section of the track throws up plenty of its own unique hazards.”

Sugar Rush: “Only MotorStormers would think to stage a race in and around an old sugar plantation. The sharp machinery and rusty metal, those rust-weakened floors and rotten walls, and the zero-visibility of the cane fields all combine to make this track a sickly-sweet rush that’s going to ruin more than just your teeth.”

The Edge: “There’s at least half a track here that isn’t ridiculously dangerous. The other half is on a camber so extreme that descriptions like ‘gnarly’, ‘radical’ and ‘utterly ridiculous’ don’t begin to convey it. This is all about keeping traction, and keeping nerve. Seasoned MotorStormers are already declaring ‘Don’t lose your bottle on the Edge – because if you do it’ll probably fall and kill someone half a mile below you”. Wise words indeed.”

The Rift: “The Rift: a mile-long tear in the world that is said to be the serpentine trail to the dark underworld of the God Milu. Formed from multiple interlinking lava tubes created over millennia, the Rift is a tight, claustrophobic journey through the jaws of the underworld, where death awaits the wearied traveler at every turn.”

Wildfire: “Trapped in no-man’s land between a deadly lava deluge and an unforgiving ocean, Wildfire is the rock between two hard places - a very temporary island-hopping race over the elemental battlefield where fire and water collide. Smoke and steam conspire to reduce race visibility to a minimum while the route screams along perilous cliff-edges and leaps across rifts and chasms.”


there not that much improved from the first game... still Motorstorm is all about fun racing... looking forward to it.

Evolution are brilliant at creating great looking realistic environments. I think they should go on to make a shooter or third-person adventure game for the PS3. This game is looking so much better than the first. I think it's going to be amazing.

I think there's quite a large improvement. Especially considering that they've gone from a relatively simple desert envioronment to a much more complex rainforest one, with some urban, beach and lava/volcanic settings thrown in too. Also 16 tracks is what's pulling me in even more. I loved the original Motorstorm, fun if not a little frustrating at times. But that's all part of the game.

I'll definitely be picking this and Far Cry 2 up when they come out.

The killzone shots are a million time better than the M2 ones. Also, Uncharted environments looked better from what i've seen. The M2 shots are chalk full of jaggies as well. Still buying this game day one though since it's the best racing game i have ever played in my life other than NFS hot pursuit 2 on GC :cool:




Looks like I'm going to be buying ANOTHER game this holiday. I'm going to be so broke it's not even funny

Impressive... there is not enough money for all these games! :-|:)

While it wasn't very deep, the first M Storm was A LOT of fun!

yeah i also believe this game looks AWSOME.... Motorstorm has been the first and only racer to really put you in the drivers seat (and this is while i was playing on a SD tv)....cannot wait to put it on cockpit view and burn some tracks through that mud....also very pumped about the inclusion of bikes

i dont think in racing game the LOOK OF STAGES is important, and it wil not BLOW me or something.

when i got my joystick and play this game, then i could tell if this game BLOW me..or MEH me.

Motorstorm pics look pretty good. I also believe that the improvement is not that much over the first one but it definately looks amazing. I do not know what to think about the killzone shots. They are compressed and the high-res texture shot seems to be edited with a crisp filter. But maybe Guerilla will prove me wrong :)


[QUOTE="Denali2, post: 0]MOTORSTORM 2 have made PURE & BAJA look like child's play[/quote]

Baja yes but i think Pure looks as good if not better. was a lot of fun.


wow those graphics are very impressive! can't wait for the demo!!!! there will be a proper demo right? not that qore crap
