Just tried the demo. Bleurgh! Just as bad as the first - sluggish, paper thin, terrible controls, poor sense of being part of the environment.

Looks LOVELY but plays like arse.

Didn't realise there was a demo up, have to give it a try.

I liked the first one but (perhaps due to it being the bare bones Japanese version) there felt like very little to do, and the progressions system didn't make me want to play on for too long.

Looks a little closer to what they wanted to do but aye, as Rhy said... it's still the same game underneath, just polished.

I liked the original Motorstorm more than I thought I would once I turned off the BLOODY AWFUL motion control system.... but it's not a classic by any means.

I think it'll be released to normal people next month. And to "randomly selected" Europeans - think you need to keep an eye on your email for that one.

I can honestly say I enjoyed the Pure demo more.

Hmm, if it looks nice but just plays the same as the first game, then that sounds like a sale to me. The first game looked a bit boring most of the time, but I do like the way it handles - that's really fun!

There's two "notable" additions from what I can make out:

- Road Rash style punching when on bikes or ATV
- the motion controls now govern the "tilt" of your rider.

Punching was in the first game - on square, I think.

Couldn't you tilt the rider in the first part as well? I remember doing wheelies by accident at the start.

This is a step removed from that - it's an ability to shift body weight without it turning the bike.

Thought of another one though - you can bunny hop and duck

Bought. ;)

Also, does this mean Rhythm pays for that Sony downloadable magazine thingy?!

Why you talking about me like I'm not here? :-D

Yeah, when he dollar was still weak I thought I'd pick up a yearly subscription. I foresaw that it would mean Euro PSN getting screwed out of demos and the like so thought it'd be worth paying a quid an issue

Hehe, for some reason I forgot it was you I was quoting. ^^;

Didn't realize it was so cheap, either - still not sure I "condone" (for want of a better word) it, though.

Not me. But Sony is working on that problem apparently. :)
