I know the msrp for this game is dropping to 19.99 pretty soon but If you have some spare Amazon credit laying around this is a solid pickup at this price :)

You're not missing anything, it's a horrible racer. I very much enjoyed the first Motorstorm and thought Pacific Rift was one of the best racers ever, at least on PS3.

Apocalypse not only feels like a chore to drive, but the CONSTANT crap coming down in front of you and throwing the track around just completely kills the ability to actually race.

I wasn't a fan of Split/Second (I actually found it pretty boring compared to Blur, which is awesome), but Motorstorm Apocalypse makes Split/Second look like Forza or GT5.

I got 2 copies from Best Buy for $5 each and promptly turned them around to Gamestop for a great profit when that sale was going on...and I haven't regretted it since.

If you need to play Motorstorm in 3D, download the 3D Rift tracks, they're great.

I guess you've never played the Wipeout games. The handling in Apocalypse is actually much tighter than in the previous 2 Motorstorm games. Jumping is also less floaty in Apocalypse than in the other two. Apocalypse actually reminds me more of a Burnout game. Not sure I follow what you mean.

I'd pay the extra 23 cents to get it from Amazon.

It's a PS+ game in Europe. I'd be surprised if it didn't eventually end up free for North America too.

I'm not sure; maybe because it's Motorstorm. I sold mine 2 days after launch because I didn't think it was as polished as Pacific Rift. Also, there were a couple of races where the AI was very rubber bandy. I remember one race I did a dozen times and no matter how long I stayed in first, the same car would always pass me at the last stretch and take first. That's what made me sell it.

On the other hand, I miss it like others do. And, now that I have a Driving Force GT, I want to try it out again. $15 is my new price point on this though. I've been watching for a while and it's taking a long time to drop.

Summed it up PERFECTLY. I agree 100%.
