ModNation Racers Roadtrip 

 

ModNation Racers Roadtrip is one of the top five launch titles I was personally interested in. This kart racing game has ported over from the Playstation 3 masterfully. And in some ways this hand held Vita game is better than the home console title. Roadtrip added to the ModNation Racers says it all. This is a hand held version that feels very close to the home console version.

The tracks look great in ModNation Racers Roadtrip. The racers are okay. They are lacking in certain details, and look like marshmallow people to me. The violence in ModNation Racers Roadtrip is at the level of a Mario Kart game. Pick up a power-up, and launch the weapon at the other racers. There are defensive, and speed boost items as well. Weapons can be powered up to level three. Then they become extremely devastating. Launching them at the right point of a race can grant an easy victory.

The music in ModNation Racers Roadtrip is great. I do not miss the announcers one bit. In my opinion it improves the franchise. Aside from the weapons I heard quite a bit of metal grinding. See the racers like to bump one another. They get drafting a bit too close when they are side by side - so to speak.

ModNation Racers Roadtrip earns a flawless victory in the replay department. Almost everything is customizable in this hand held game. We can adjust our characters, our vehicles, and the race tracks. If that were not enough then half a million tracks available online should catch your eye. ModNation Racers Roadtrip includes online modes for those that like to compete against fellow humans.

If you are not familiar with ModNation Racers Roadtrip then there is a tutorial to walk you through the start of the career mode. If you know what you are doing then that tutorial can be quickly skipped. Races can be learned outside of career mode for those that like to have some idea what the track looks like. I found the learning curve in ModNation Racers Roadtrip to be just right. Shortcuts are all over the race tracks. Although some can be difficult if you make a mistake - like falling into the water.

At the end of the day I found ModNation Racers Roadtrip to be a really fun hand held racing title. I enjoyed all the different achievements and trophies I earned. ModNation Racers Roadtrip is a community racing title that teaches us to get to the top by any means necessary. ModNation Racers Roadtrip also teaches us to look for alternate paths to the main road. Sony has really impressed me with ModNation Racers Roadtrip on the PS Vita.
