If you were a fan of the original MotorStorm, there's absolutely no reason why you should pass on the sequel. With the addition of a few more vehicles (including that bad-ass Monster Truck), more tracks, more realistic physics, and the option of 16 vehicles per race, Pacific Rift is bigger and better in just about every way. Sony has been running quite the marketing campaign for this intense off-roader, and many PS3 owners already have this one sitting pretty in their library at home. If you're still on the fence, though, perhaps this new Vehicles Trailer will finally convince you to take the plunge. It's past time to adopt the game's philosophy for yourself: "Lunatics Unite!"
