MotorStorm: Apocalypse - Summary


The Stormers are now bringing the extreme MotorStorm festival to a major metropolitan city that has been ravaged by a gigantic earthquake. With all of its unstable skyscrapers, fiery subway tunnels, twisting bridges and more, the almost completely abandoned city offers the perfect playground for MotorStorm’s electric brand of brutal street racing. Fully customize your collection of vehicles, which now includes supercars, muscle cars, and superbikes, and face down your fellow Stormers as well as a city where destruction awaits you at every turn. And with tremors and aftershocks continuing to hit the city in real-time, you never know where the race will take you. Welcome to the concrete jungle. Welcome to the apocalypse, MotorStorm style!

  • Survive epic real-time destruction across 40 unique apocalyptic races with over 300 gameplay-changing real-time events —from building collapses and machine gun fire to cataclysmic natural disasters.

I've been looking through my large collection PS3 downloads, this game was on it so I decided to give it a go. As far as arcade style racing titles go, this is a fun game.

Its funny, there was a lot of drama surrounding this game because of things going on in Japan, delays, etc. People were looking for excuses why it flopped. I think what it comes down to is there isn't a big audience for these style of games.

I'd kinda like to see this series get PS4 ports because they would really benefit from 60 fps. If they make a new release I hope 60 fps is a focus.

Shame this bombed, I thought it was the best in the series.

How can that earthquake have something to do with the low sales? It isn't even released in Japan. Also the other motorstorm sold not that much in japan. It's just a bad game. probably because all the 'talent' is working on driveclub

this was release around the time the large earthquake happened in Japan. Maybe that has something to do with the low sales. Its a shame because its the best in the series

I enjoyed motorstorm: pacific rift more, but this is still a decent game.

My favourite Motorstorm. Rubbing banding was tuned down, the environments were interesting and diverse, the air cooling system was a vast improvement and the graphics were beautiful. A shame to see it sell like this.
