The Next Game: ModNation Racers (PS3)


If you own a PS3 and have been waiting for a fun game, perhaps something similar to Little Big Planet in spirit, then look into ModNation Racers, which will be released on May 25. I put down a reserve for a copy and I’m looking forward to having fun online. Early reviews have described the game in the same way: Little Big Planet meets Mario Kart.

Updated 08/29/2011: I still own the game but I haven’t played more than a couple of hours. In fact, I don’t think I ever touched multiplayer. It was a great concept but there were some critical issues that lead to my lack of interest. The first, which was frequently mentioned in reviews, was the long load times.

It took too long to do anything in the game. The other part was the complexity. Mario Kart is fun because it’s easy to get into a game quickly. I didn’t have the same experience with ModNation Racers. Perhaps I’ll play it at some point, but few PS3 games have earned my interest so far.
