Delayed and delayed again by earthquakes in New Zealand and Japan, natural disaster driving game Motorstorm: Apocalypse finally hit store shelves today, less than a week after the deadliest tornado outbreak in U.S. history.

While much of the constant shifting and reshaping of Motorstorm: Apocalypse's tracks come in the wake of earthquakes and tremors, at least one level is built around a town destroying hurricane and the tornadoes it triggers.

Playing through that level, I was amazed by the graphics, the rain-drenched view, the tumbling terrain. It also left me feel a bit like I did when playing through the earthquake levels.
