Disney cook up a treat with a slice of MotorStorm and a pinch of SSX

What does the word Pure make you think of? An abstinence of immoral vices? An untouched tropical beach? Orange juice? We'll hedge our bets and guess that 99.9% of people won't be thinking of ATVs racing around cliff tops. OK, so it's only a name, but tell that to the makers of Juiced who've had their series written-off because nobody knew what it was about amongst established titles like Need For Speed, Burnout and Ridge Racer. It's the same situation for Disney's off-road racer as it goes up against established names like MotorStorm, MX vs. ATV and DiRT.... read more

I certainly enjoyed the demo and you can find it online for unde £30 but I already have motorstorm 2 on pre-order for £30. There's too many other games out in the next 2 months to make me want to buy this - had it come out in the summer it would probably get better sales

do any racing games have a split-screen mode anymore? seriously, some of us still have friends who actually come round to our houses and then have to take turns playing some racing games now. if SSX could do split-screen surely these next gen consoles should be able to chew it up.

I'm inclined to agree - way too much competition over the next few weeks for this title to get the sales that it may have achieved at another time.

Seems enjoyable enough - demo was good, great visuals, decent feeling of speed....I've already allocated my funds for the next couple of months though, so I won't be picking this up.

Pure is fantastic fun. I'm buying it for definite.

Always intended to buy one offroad racer this year... so it was a choice between this and Motorstorm 2. After comparing demos, I mich prefer this. Roll on Friday. :)

Nice that 7.5 point review didn't put you off guys, as some people tend to act. Especially that you liked the demo and you actually can think for yourselves.

You can't always base your opinion of a game on a 1 track demo, but here goes:

The demo was fun for about 10 minutes but then the lack of depth shone through. Where were the monstrous crashes, with bodies and car-parts flying around? Where was the challenge? Why were the visuals really good but boring at the same time? Could I enjoy endless, samey gameplay with different tracks? No. Any other vehicle types? No. Purchase? No.

Yeah but who gives a f**k what you think? I enjoyed it and at the moment it p**ses on Motorstorm 2 (demo vs demo)

Oh, and there are no 'car parts flying around cos there are no frigging cars in the game douch bag!

I've played the demo 3 or 4 times and still liked it each time. I've read/watched a bunch of reviews and a lot of them do mention that there isn't a lot of depth to the whole thing, but I think it's made up for by the amount of pure and simple fun you can have with the game. I've also compared the demos of this and Motorstorm 2, as I said, and preferred this. Don't worry yourself about where my money is going Mark, I've done the research. :wink:

I'm all for deep epic games, but once in a while I like to play a game that gives me a break from the serious stuff and lets me just hurl myself around a track at crazy speeds, doing tricks and having fun. I really like what I've seen so far, I want to see more, so I'm buying it.
On top of that, there's nothing else that interests me coming out for another few weeks, so Pure should fill that gap nicely.

Dont worry, the only negative point in the first Motorstorm has been rectified for the sequel.

There is split screen 2 player on MS2
