MotorStorm was announced at E3 2005, and takes place at the fictional MotorStorm Festival in Monument Valley. The objective of the game is to win a series of off-road races and to be the overall winner of the Festival. MotorStorm holds the Guinness World Record for the biggest variety of vehicles in a racing game - players are in control of seven different types of vehicles throughout the game: bikes, ATVs, buggies, rally cars, racing trucks, mudpluggers and big rigs. Each vehicle has its own strengths and weaknesses. For example, dirt bikes are capable of accelerating very fast and capable of manoeuvring through tight spaces, but they are also easily damaged, and only reach mediocre top speeds. On the other hand, big rigs have great durability, medium speed, but poor acceleration and handling.

MotorStorm has sold over 3 million copies. Two sequels were made, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift in 2008, and MotorStorm: Apocalypse in 2011. As of January 2012, the online multiplayer servers for the game have been permanently shut down.

Known Issues

Physics will bug out when running with a combination of Windows and PPU recompiler. However running the same settings on Linux will not exhibit the issue. Using PPU interpreter on Windows will solve the issue but at the cost of performance.
