Motorstorm (Series) Review
Posted: 12 months ago, last updated 2 weeks ago.
As the series developed it focus more on the extreme sports side of racing high powered vehicles. This means that Motorstorm: Apocalypse and Motorstorm: Pacific Rift is rated PEGI 16 rather than PEGI 12 like the original game.
- MotorStorm (PlayStation 3)
- MotorStorm: Pacific Rift (PlayStation 3)
- MotorStorm: Arctic Edge (PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable)
- MotorStorm: Apocalypse (PlayStation 3)
- MotorStorm: RC (PlayStation Vita)
Motorstorm: Apocalypse had its release delayed after Japan's devastating earthquake in 2011, because the game featured a similar scene that destructed the track. This led to mediocre sales and the game being something of a hidden gem.
Players: You can play with 4 players in the same room, but you can’t play it online. Motorstorm: Pacific Rift added four-player split-screen racing on one system. This continued on Motorstorm: Apocalypse. However, the online multiplayer servers are no longer running, however. Motorstorm Artic Edge offers two-player split-screen racing. Although you can complete the game in around 14 hours, this still leaves more challenges and multiplayer elements to enjoy.
PlayStation 4 has a range of accessibility settings. Some are system only, some work in games (invert colours and button mapping)... read more about system accessibility settings.
