A review of the gimped Japanese version, nothing more. The US version will have a lot more modes/online play.

I wouldnt judge the game based on the Japanese copy because it seemed very rushed and lacked multiplayer and other features they say will be in the US version.

I'm kind of confused. Why would the Japanese version get released so gimped and the US version get so much extra love?

japanese version is gimped because their version is 720p/30fps, there was a rumor that US version would be 1080p/60fps, but that was a sony pr mistake and they already made the announcement it would be exactly like the japanese version.... sony pr for teh fetchin win again, those guys are on the ball, i guess they have the freedom to say whatever they want to please customers

US has one extra mode, and a multiplayer that hasn't been seen, why do ppl keep jumping all over this game i don't understand it? is it because you only have this and RFOM to clutch to?

How do you say the Japanese version is gimped because of it's res.....then say it was a PR mistake?

Have you even played the game before? The game is amazingly fun. If this game was announced for the 360 it would be a different store though huh?

not really, it felt too much like burnout/flatout. i agree that the game looked pretty, but it felt like a moch burnout/flatout type game.

played the demo in a target with a well ventilated ps3, no glitching/freezing. the game ran smooth, looked nice, just seemed like they were rehashing what has already been done

What's wrong with a rehash? This game does it very well. Also, to note I was quite disappointed with the demo in the kiosk and thought the game was crap. Then I got my own PS3 and played the demo from the PS store and it was much better.

I have played the demo and I really didn't like it that much, but if you turn on the tilt controls in the menu it actually made me play it a while longer even though I really sucked at using it for a while. Still I most likely won't be buying it. I think games that use the tilt controller really need a configuration option for the tilt stuff. In motorstorm it is way too sensitive.
