Exclusive ModNation Racers gameplay videos

Footage of Sony's Mario Kart challenger lands on CVG

The ModNation Racers closed beta kicked off recently, but if you weren't lucky enough to get in on the action, we've got a couple of exclusive gameplay videos here to give you an idea of the chaos that's going on.

It's pretty mental actually - nice and fast with meaty-sounding engines and a satisfying power-sliding mechanic that gives you a kick of speed out of corners.

All the editing tools are pretty easy to use too, and there are already Mario, Killzone and Spider Man characters turning up in the game. Some of the items are pretty mental, too - check out the videos below to see for yourselves.

We've rather surprisingly been having quite a laugh with ModNation Racers. But can it challenge Mario Kart?
