Why do we continually get reviews from people who have played the beta and/or demo, review the finished product it's not difficult, Rant over
Picked up my copy yesterday, and have to say its a gem of a little game. There has been a distinct lack of quality racers before now on the PS3, but this one ticks all of the right boxes. It's fun and most importantly addictive, tracks can take a little while to load and the driving mechanics aren't really that much different to a certain other kart game but in soo many other ways it innovates. The single player mode is pretty straight forward, but a nice touch is learning about your rivals personalities, just adds a little something.
Where this game comes alive tho is the modding. Creating a track is soo simple (you just drive a tarmac laying truck around to the shape you wish to create) but is arguably the funnest part of the game where hours can be lost perfecting a track with various accessories. I made one that took 50mins, and is great fun to drive around but after trying others creations out it can only inspire your own designs.
If the ModNation community is anything like as friendly and creative as the of LBP then you'll be coming back to this game for months after you have completed the single player. Am sure there will also be numerous DLC to spend your pennies on in the future with a new future weapon pack (weapons are just your standard Mario type at the min) already hinted at.
