Re: MotorStorm: Apocalypse

The download version should be the same as the disc version except download versions only usually include one language, depending one which store it's bought from. I assume you definitely bought Motorstorm Apocalypse and not Motorstorm 3D Rift? Also, I assume you're playing in Festival mode and now Wreckreation.

Sorry, I know these are stupid questions but they're the only things I can think of that could be wrong.

Re: MotorStorm: Apocalypse

Yes im playing apocalypse race's take place during earthquakes etc and yes im playing story mode except this version seems to have no story anymore its been removed all the online modes are present and working correct  strange they have been cut without any notice its cheaper to buy the disk version with all the original content sucks to buy games after the stores close i guess =/

I've had a look around but I can't find any other reports of this happening. If they'd actually removed the story from the game I'm sure there'd be more people talking about it. The only thing I can suggest is to try deleting the 'MotorStorm: Apocalypse" data from the 'Game Data Utility' on your XMB, see if that fixes is and if not, start a new saved game.

To be honest, you aren't really missing much anyway - MS:A's story is one of the worst I've seen in a while... But I know that's not really the point. :smileyhappy:

Re: MotorStorm: Apocalypse

I did try and remove the game and all data and try a fresh download but all is the same seems the store version is cut to make the download smaller maybe im unsure of that as nothing to compare to ,and sure the story may be trash in your opinion but i paid for that trash and now have to wonder if i will indeed be getting the full version's of the games i pay to download . but thankyou for your time looking into this :Smile:

Re: MotorStorm: Apocalypse

That sucks.

 

The cutscenes really aren't much but it would still be cool to have them in the game.

Re: MotorStorm: Apocalypse

I downloaded the freebie of PSN + and to be honest, I really miss the gameplay that the Original Motorstorm had.

Yes, the graphics are nicer, but the whole game, including Rift, just feels like toys racing around a track. There is no feeling in the game whatsoever.

The original Motorstorm, the cars actually felt like they were sliding on gravel, or bumping over jumps and actually felt like they had movement in the vehicles. The new games are just fricking awful and not fun at all.

 

I got the game for free and glad I did, as it's lost the whole enjoyment that the first game had. All these other games out there feel the same, where as Motorstorm 1 actually felt realistic.

 

And regarding digital downloads, its one reason I hardly buy any of the retail games as Digital Downloads for the very reason stated in the OPs post, they do remove stuff just to reduce download sizes. It's another reason not paying there ripoff prices is a must for most people, no box, no disc, no physical product, yet they still want to charge more than is fair and remove content.

 

Don't buy the Downloads of retail games, end of.
