Well I'm afraid that motorstorm was just the theme of the tracks and cars. RC was the way it played, and to that it plays perfectly fine, I have had no trouble with the controls as they are the control scheme I prefer to use for every racing game. ( I never much cared for the R trigger as acceleration.)
But I mean for those that were expecting it to play like an actual racer, I don't understand why. The preview videos that I saw for the game showed it playing like an RC. I think they did a fantastic job with the game, and at the price point of $0.00 it's kinda tough to beat.
Wow! The controls are terrible! Honestly, it doesn't even feel like a video game much less a Motorstorm game. It's definitely not worthy of the franchise name. I sure am hoping they make a REAL Motorstorm game for the Vita. But Motorstorm RC is free, so what you do expect right? What do you think of the game?

I got used to it pretty quickly but what you're feeling here is a lack of analog triggers. It took a few weeks but we have one of our first reminders that this is a limited handheld, if even slightly.
Once I took a step back from my previous plays of Wipeout 2048 and realized this is a racer like no other, the controls came pretty easily. Then again, I raced RC cars about 20 years ago pretty regularly. Still quite a bit of a learning curve when dealing with narrower tracks and tighter curves. I'm having a blast with it, though.
Been lurking for a while, but this post was irratating enough to get me to post.
Look, I know that probably no one who has posted here has any experience whatsoever with hobby grade RC vehicles. Basically, they're scaled down versions of the real thing. I own a Slash 4x4 that has a 4-1/2 horsepower electric motor, beadlock wheels, fully articulated suspension, etc. With a large enough battery (and thats putting things very simply), its top speed is around 80mph.
I race the things. And this game controls EXACTLY how you control a real RC car/truck/etc. Its very, very accurate. So while I can understand how it may be hard to get used to at first (everyone does have trouble for a while), that doesn't mean the game has bad controls. It simply is how it works in the real world.
I think that what everyone is really complaining about is that its not a real Motorstorm game, with a 3rd person view of the vehicle. I'm not a huge fan of this either. At the same time, I realize that it honestly wasn't ever advertising itself as a full on Motorstorm game. So I've been hugely enjoying it for what it is.
Oh, and even the paid version is only $10. So there's not a whole lot to complain about. It looks good, its fun, the social aspect is pretty addicting, and it was at most $10.
