Wow, here we are! ModNation Racers: Road Trip is out and the feedback from gamers who’ve played the game sounds like they are loving it. Personally, I must confess to being a little more than enamored with the game and my PlayStation Vita; so much so that I couldn’t wait any longer to get my copy of the game. I actually purchased mine at retail a week early because… well, “I’m not only the Community Manager for ModNation Racers, but I’m also a client”! lol. True, but lol.
I honestly don’t think you can beat the gaming value found in ModNation Racers: Road Trip. For $29.99 you have in your possession well over a lifetime of great, and most importantly, fun kart racing experiences. I could go on and on singing the game’s praises ad-nauseam (too late!) but no expensive, highfalutin, big city words can describe the experience until you have the game in your hands. In our ModNation Labs research we found the term “Wow!” came closest to an accurate description.
I personally suggest going directly to the Share Station and downloading some of the tracks from our recommended user-created “Starter Set” of tracks (see below). This will give you a great example of the amazing graphics, powerful (yet simple) creation tools used by the gamers, and the ability to quickly search through the 3,000,000 user-generated creations of which over 500,000 are user-created tracks!

ModNation Racers: Road Trip Developers Tip #1 – “Can’t We All Just Get Along?”
When racing against AI opponents, try resisting the temptation to constantly bombard your opponents with weapons and see what happens. (hint “eye for an eye”). Remember, you can always cash-in your weapons for added boost.
