Classic game room – Motorstorm 2 Pacific Rift

Ok , so It isn’t that long ago really. Indeed you can find it on this very blog. But in 2008 at Christmas I bought Pacific Rift and liked it a lot. I thought it was all finished with . However I was watching the Dakar Rally on eurosport and decided to dig it out again. Man what a game. The graphics and textures are still lush. The atmosphere on the island is idylic. I want to live there I really do. Or at least go there with a crate of beers and watch it in the sun. The cars handle well ( apart from the bikes). It is very challenging ( perhaps too) and it has a great variety of tracks. The only downside is they have removed offline ( presuming though lack of use ) as of Oct 2012. Shame because I remember living in Baoping road , having many a caffeine fueled blast on it with the windows open and the sun streaming in.

Here is a quick review to complete the classic games room section :

  • Summary
  • Specifications
  • Features
  • Game Editions

The wild racing riot continues with the second entry in this fast-paced, down-and-dirty racing game. This second outing takes you to a solitary tropical paradise in the Pacific Ocean, ready for a whole new take on no-holds-barred racing action through thick swamps, dense jungle, towering peaks and steaming volcanoes. Not just pretty backdrops to the action, these environments take centre stage in challenging players with everything in Mother Nature’s arsenal. Thick mud, tangled undergrowth, swift flowing rivers, choking volcanic clouds and searing lava pools all test the drivers to their limits and beyond.

All of the vehicle classes from the first MotorStorm are here again: ATVs, rally cars, buggies, motorbikes, race trucks, mudpluggers and Big Rigs – as well as the newly arrived monster trucks that climb, sprint and roll over any other vehicle in their way. 16 players can race head-to-head online and, for the first time in the series, racers can hit the gas in four-player split-screen mode.

All thanks to an old IGN review. Ok I am off for a blast!
