    Why all the hate? I know it's not perfect but it's not SO bad....... really. Freeverse could just fix these bugs; tweak a few things and it'll be good. Why do you guys hate it so much?

    I finally beat the game last night.

    I've had it since I got my iTouch back in August.

    Why did it take me so long?

    Because the game is one hot mess.

    Seriously.

    The framerate is nice. The graphics are too. The controls are nearly spot on for the most part. The option of choosing 3 different racers is nice.

    But goddamn it does that camera completely and utterly suck monkey balls. It is nigh unplayable when all I see is my characters ass instead of the goddamn road ahead of me when going over a hill. No camera view options. Nope. I have to grit my teeth and hope that I don't fall off the edge that I can't see.

    Beat it and deleted it. Won't put it back.

    Freeverses other games are much, much better, IMHO.

    I don't hate it.. in fact it looks impressive, the sense of speed is good, and punching other drivers is a nice touch. However, encounters are very sparse and you only need to hit the button once to send them careening off the road, and from then on it's really just you versus the clock. That gets a little boring after a while.

    I think it could have been a lot more, but at least I only paid 59p for it so there's no big loss there.

    Edit: completely agree about the sloppy camera work.

    I say it's the controls are a bit too sensitive and that one punch is too little. Maybe diferent amounts. Really; FreeVerse just fix these things.

    I always liked Motochaser...it was one of the first games I bought. Of course, I also bought Crash Nitro so there's no accounting for taste :p

    I liked motochaser on the commercial, but I deleted it after about a tenth of a second. I think hate may be too strong a word.....well, maybe not ;)

    I have to agree, I bought this a few months back after reading a description that essentially said it was a combination of Road Rash and Ridge Racer ... glad I didn't pay more than $.99 for it. The camera needs to be brought up so that you can actually see the road, too many times I'll run into a car, fall off a cliff, or ride into the grass (taking away PRECIOUS seconds) because I predicted the road wrong.

    I think the hate comes from this being one of the games Apple touted as making the 2G Touch the "funnest iPod ever" instead of the "most frustrating iPod ever." I understand why they did it (not many games to choose from), but damn I think that commercial sold many people on it.

    Because it sucks? Because its an atrocity committed against mankind? Because it cost 10 frickin bucks when it came out and now it costs 99 cents?

    Take your choice!

    I love it, it's one of iPhone classics. Sure, we have many better games now, but I still like it. It reminds me of the days I just got my iPhone :)

    It's boring, repetitive, and way too easy. Nothing special at all about it.

    And the controls aren't very good, nor is the camera.

    i really dont get the scoring system at all, which provides poor replay value.

    I could have sworn that you said that you were leaving. ;)

    I actually used to like Moto Chaser, but now that I have seen better games, I can't go back to it. I already beat it though. You hit something, and it seems as if you never hit anything.

    to me, it was a slight waste of money
    all u do is press the gas petal and move around the road, a task already difficult to master
    also, its just u vs the clock..all the cars and other bikers are just normal vehicles...

    the only thing i do like is the option to punch the bikers if u cross any :)
