MotorStorm Pacific Rim
MotorStorm Pacific Rift is an off-road racing game and sequel to the 2006 PS3 launch title MotorStorm. Rather than the desert environment of its predecessor, the game takes place on an island lush with vegetation with a total of 16 original tracks on beaches, jungles, caves, and volcanic mountainsides. Monster trucks have been added to the game, which possess the ability to ride over cars, as well as destroy vegetation and other aspects to the environment. The game also includes 4-player split-screen and online multiplayer, to which the servers were discontinued on October 31, 2012.
MotorStorm Pacific Rift received positive reviews with an average score of 83%, praised for its online multiplayer, original tracks, and beautiful landscapes, though criticized by some for its inconsistent vehicle handling.
MotorStorm Pacific Rift was first released in late 2008, and includes 12 online trophies. Unfortunately, the servers were closed on October 31, 2012, which means the online trophies can no longer be unlocked. Therefore, the Platinum for this title is Not Obtainable.
Due to the closure of the online servers, the 12 online trophies - and the game's Platinum - are now Not Obtainable. However, there are still 37 offline trophies that can be unlocked. So if you're interested, then read on.
Your first order of business will be to head into Festival and play your way through to the end, with the objective of achieving a gold medal on each race. There are 16 different tracks in total, and three types of races: Speed Events in which you must pass through each checkpoint in order to gain extra time before the timer runs out, Elimination Events where you must be the last racer to be eliminated, and Standard Events which is your basic race to the finish line. As you can imagine, the first few races are pretty each to win gold medals, but will certainly get more difficult as you continue through the Festival. Just be patient and keep trying each race until you get that gold, before moving onto the next one. By the end, you'll have unlocked the Champion trophy for winning 96 gold medals, as well as the Runner Up trophy automatically for 96 silvers, plus all the Festival-related trophies, plus a number of naturally during your playthrough.
Once you've completed that, then congratulations! You've succeeded in the bulk of the difficulty. You can next head into Wreckreation, and select Time Trials, then try to beat the developer's ghost with the specified race and car. Doing this will unlock the Hire Me trophy.
With that out of the way, it's simply a matter of using Freeplay to mop-up any other offline trophies you may still be needing. Check out the MotorStorm Pacific Rim trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you need and its requirements.
Unfortunately, with the online servers gone, this is as far as we can go. But if you've managed to come this far, you should still feel proud of your efforts, as unlocking all those offline trophies is no easy feat.
