I personally don't plan on buying motorostorm or even considering buying it. I downloaded the demo and it was fun at first but quickly got boring. I dont think its going to be as good as everyone says. Any opinions?

I love the gameplay, and feel that the final game will be great, although the lack of offline multiplayer is very odd, considering that it is usually online multiplayer that gets dropped if a schedule is to be met.

But, since I enjoy it, that is all that matters to me.

I have the Japanese version, and I feel it has not met the hype. There is no variety. Just 1 mode....then that's it. I am buying the US version hoping that the online is great.

was Gears of War as good as the hype? no, but that didn't prevent it from selling millions and getting awards so Motorstorm has hope :)

even wrongheaded EUROGAMER.net has given motorstom(*** version ) with severe bugs and san online a 8/10.

the US version is on course for a perfect 10.

That would be amazing since it would save me $60. I haven't heard anything on that though.

Well one of the excuses the developers gave for releasing it without online or anything was that the japanese public was more accustomed to getting features later down the road. I havent read anything official tho, and i read this loooong ago (just when it was released in japan) so i dont know. I'd wait a bit after the USA release just in case :)

Well in my case it didnt

-Short as hell , took 2 days to beat it

-Boss battles are garbage, I think I cried after the Corpser battle cuz how pathetic it was (didnt even touch me once)

-Hints content that was not even included (Burmak?)

-Few guns that get kind of old after a while

-Repetitive situations and enemies (something besides drones 24/7 would have been nice)

-Quality in content (environments, art, etc.) goes downhill after the first act

-Story...well..is there any story?

-Multiplayer is glitchy and crippled to the extreme

probably the only thing that manages to pull the game together is the graphics, character animation and the co-op

It looks to be a very fun and addictive game. I've been loving the demo, so we'll see.

It exceeded the hype for me.

exceeeded the hype with no physics/ no AI poor gameplay .

It was just a piece of art rather than a game.

RESISTANCE is what a game should be like

I may just do that. Thanks! I hope it happens, because I am sure they would love to have online play in Japan.
