    Default Motorstorm: Apocalypse quick feedback

    I got a promo disc of Motorstorm: Apocalypse from SK yesterday and got to play it for about a hour or so yesterday.

    At first I wasn't too sure about the new comic book look of the interstitial videos between races, but after a while they started to grow on me.

    The game itself though, it pretty fun. I still think MotorStorm 1 was one of the best looking early PS3 games, and sadly somehow Motorstorm: Apocalypse does not quite match in the looks department. What you do however get is dynamic terrain deformation, a lot like we saw with last year's Split/Second.

    This adds a whole new element to the game, as the race track changes between laps. The races themselves aren't too difficult and without too much retries managed to consistently end up either in first or second place. Getting first place unlocks the hardcore mode of the particular track.

    The first full round has you play all the different types of vehicles in the game, such as the motorbike, super bike, ATV, Truck and so on. In the race you can also try and knock your opponents into walls or barries by using the squire or circle buttons, for opponents to either left or right of you.

    You also need to collect comic books icons hidden on the tracks, so get them all you will need to explore the various possible routes per track.

    I've haven't tried the online mode since the game is not yet launched.
