Forgettable Fun

Motorstorm Pacific Rift is a game that can't truly be enjoyed without friends. It has a fantastic combination of realism and lunacy that is entertaining for a while, but will soon wear off. Unlike other racing games, you can race with anything from a quadbike to a monster truck and everything in between. This adds an interesting tacical element; where bikes can take certain shortcuts, rally cars have the advantage of speed, and huge trucks are slower but literally roll over other cars. This is a game where every racer will crash ten times each race, and the difference between first and second place can be minutes rather than milliseconds. The beauty of the game is in choosing the right path on each course, as each circuit has a variety of off-road and insane paths to take - through water, lava or mud. With a few friends this can be the perfect casual racing game for a short burst of entertainment.
