ModNation Racers: The Most Important Sports Game of 2010? 0

PS3, Sony
Release Date:
N/A
Price:
59.99
Rating:
10

In a sleepy little corner of Yaletown, the perpetually drizzly city of Vancouver, what could be the most important sports game of next year is quietly being assembled.

Yes, I have played the game. Yes, I have met the nice people who are building the game. Yes, the game is looking excellent so far.

You see, it’s easy to dismiss ModNation as just another kart racing game. Or worse, as a poor man's Mario Kart. (Though the Sports Gamer does enjoy his Mario Kart.)

I'm here to tell you that ModNation is so much more than that.

NEW WII CONTROLLER IS "THE B.O.S.S." 2

  • Sports Gamer
  • Posted by: Scott Jones

Platforms:
Wii
Release Date:
October 22, 2009
Price:
9.99
Fact: I play a lot of Wii games. And, while I do like the fact that you can turn the Wii remote sideways and use the D-pad and 1 and 2 buttons, I don't always feel that playing this way gives me enough fine-tuned control during my most hectic gaming moments.
