Last year's Split/Second was one of the most exciting racing games to come out in years, so it's no surprise that many developers would want to imitate the insanity that Black Rock Studios brought to the racer. Who would've guessed, however, that the MotorStorm series would be one of those to rip a page out of their books?

Over the past few weeks and probably the next few, I have been playing quite a few games that, in actuality, I had already played many times before.
