ModNation Racers 2

Sony’s released a new trailer for ModNation Racers.

Get it after the break.

As well as a new trailer, some new shots were also released. Get them over at the EU PS Blog.

The game’s Sony’s second user-defined game from the Play, Create, Share genre after LittleBigPlanet; we’re having some good feelings about the United Front racer.

The game’s due out sometime in spring for PS3 alongside a PSP version, which was announced last month.

    This game could be BIG. I just hope they nail the framerate as it was choppy in the beta (sure they will) and have an easy to connect online multiplayer.

    I loved the beta, but you’re right, the framerate needs sorting ( I’m pretty sure they will too ).

    If they get the handling of the karts right that’s all i ask for. In the beta they felt a bit stiff and i didn’t like how they handled. Once that’s sorted out there will be nothing to stop this game from being epic!

    Looks extremely and utterly ‘meh’ to me.

    I’ll pre-order Joyride for 0$, and pay 0$ to play it.

    This is still looking extremely average.

    The strength of LittleBigPlanet lay in the degree to which you could freely alter pretty much *everything* in the game to create your own ideas and objects and level.

    While this video seems to show some vast improvements over the previous videos we’ve seen, with some more significant changes to the track being clearly apparent, it still feels like there’s a severe lack of freedom in the customisation.

    This is worrying, and I hope it doesn’t end up being the case in the final game.

    The customisation was actually good enough in the beta. (You can’t really create all that much if your limited to one style of gameplay of course). Everything else wasn’t good though.

    What about lighting? Scenery? All I see are trees and sunshine.

    The framerate in the beta was awful…They must be able to 60 fps or at least a stable 30 because this was sometimes unplayable

    average ??

    Even without any kind of track customisation , and the rather awesome characters customisation as well , this would look like a great game .

    To each there opinion , but i dont get some of you guys . HAve you taken a serious look at arcade racing right now without accounting nintendo consoles ?

    Bare some titles wich are now seriously getting dated , like the excellent Burnout paradise , or wipeout or Motorstorm , there is nothing new right now …

    Some games are too busy trying to be realistic and failing at it miserably (looking at you NFS) , some arent even there (ridge racer ??) , and plenty are obscure japanese arcade titles (initial d ?) wich only a handful like myself could care about …

    Where has arcade racing gone on hd consoles ?

    One may not like the “arcade kart” genre … but a good looking mario kart clone with actually good driving mechanics , on hd consoles is more than welcome , and beyond “meh” and “average” imo .

    @Neolucifer +1 – absolutely spot on.
