The load & install times on this game can get ridiculously long. Though it's not something to keep you away from the game, sometimes you'll just want to jump into a race but have to wait almost an entire minute to begin. Mic support is a good feature, but I wish there wasn't so many people cursing and talking crap through their headsets, but there isn't really a way to fix that. This was a interesting game.

For the past few weeks, it seems like all I've been talking about is ModNation Racers. Recording video reviews, working on previews, and just chatting with friends -- United Front Games' baby has been on the tip of my tongue. Being engulfed in a game this way can often lead to a person getting sick of the title in question, but that hasn't happened here...ModNation Racers is just too damn good...Been ignoring IGN for, say, the last year? Well, first, welcome back, and second, you missed a whole bunch of ModNation awesomeness. At first glance, this game is just another kart racer with HD graphics. It comes with a career mode, a plethora of colorful characters to race against and earn for your stable, and an experience point-packing online universe. But as you settle in behind the controls, you'll find ModNation is so much more than just a kart racing game...When you feel the need to race -- and ever since getting this game, I have felt that need -- there are a few ways to scratch that itch. If you're jonesing for a solo experience, you can jump into Career Central. Here, you're playing as a character named Tag, but whatever Mod or Kart you want to use will be used and incorporated into the game's cutscenes, which is dynamite. This comical tale of revenge and redemption plays out over the game's 28 built-in tracks and offers you a ton of reasons to come back and replay the races...It's a shame that something as seemingly inconsequential as the load times is the main problem with a game as good as ModNation Racers, but I guess that speaks to the overall quality of everything else. The driving is fun, the creating is deep but easy, and the community is going to thrive. Sure, you might have to wait a bit longer than you'd like to get to the racing, but it's honestly not that bad and this game is worth it.
