Gaming icons get created for ModNation Racers

11:00 AM on 12.20.2009 // Nick Chester

The beta for United Front Games ModNation Racers has only been going on for a few days, but those invited to the already have their creative juices flowing.

Using the game's extensive character customization (or "Mods," as they're called in the game), creators do what they tend to do when handed such tools -- re-create their favorite gaming icons. I found everything from creations of Old Snake from Metal Gear Solid 4 to God of War's Kratos, from Nintendo's Luigi to a Mega Man with ears.

While the authenticity of the Mods vary in quality, the ingenuity to bring them to life should be commended. To imagine, these are only creations made with the limited parts United Front Games has made available in the beta. I can't wait to see what people come up with when the game launches next year.

Hit the jump to check out a sampling of some of the creations I found; all images were taken using the in-game photo mode.
