well, after having played some motorstorm, i am still not sold on this thing. basically only two complaints, the position of the left thumbstick and the r2/l2 buttons. i wish those buttons could be more like triggers. it makes my fingers feel like they're about to slip off a negative-angled slope or something. they never do, but just seem like they might. as far as the thumbstick, once i gave up on using it in this game and turned to the directional pad, i started kicking major butt. that is, until i went online and got spanked like a red-headed step-child.
anyway, i know some games will require use of the left thumbstick, so i'll have to deal with it. also, anyone ever play a game utilizing both thumbsticks and wind up having your thumbs collide with each other?
