Summary: If you love motorstorm don't forget about this one! This is a GREAT port!!! This is my favorite motor storm!! Even if you think its not worth going back to ps2 you just have to try this last great racing game for one great system!
Summary: This PS2 port of "Motorstorm: Arctic Edge" took me by surprise. It's every bit as fun as the PSP version and the PS3 Motorstorms. Obviously, the graphics are nowhere near as detailed as it's PS3 counterparts...but "Arctic Edge" manages to rock the PS2 processor rather well. As indicated by the title, it transplants the mechanics from the last two Motorstorms into a winter climate setting.
Conclusion: Some perspective required I feel - theres a lot of 'OMG!!!' 5 star reviews knocking about, and yes this is a fantastic attempt to bring Motorstorm to the PSP and theres a lot thats great about it, but ultimately its only an average game. I love it for trying, but theres too many niggles to make it stand out.
Conclusion: This game is a 'must have' for PSP. It includes challenging game play for standards of player and doesn't stop introducing new levels till you complete the game. If you haven't got it, you should be ashamed!
Conclusion: The perfect game to play this weather!! Who needs to go outside when you can enjoy Arctic conditions on your PSP, in the warmth of your own home!! Sound track is excellent, choice of vehicle is top-notch and the graphics, and tracks are quite good. Easily playable too.
Conclusion: If you're thinking of getting a racing game for the PSP, I wouldn't hesitate in picking up a copy of this, it's addictive, the graphics are top notch, and the online mode is brilliant. You can even use your own MP3's to customize the soundtrack (I've put the Justice and Daft Punk live albums on mine), which makes for an even more enjoyable gaming experience.
Conclusion: I fully agree with velvetbananas comments on this title. It really is an awesome game and a technical marvel on how they have managed to squeeze such a graphically demanding title onto the hardware. This manages to create its own 'Motorstorm' feel and really can stand head and shoulders with its 2 bigger brothers on the PS3. The detail in the tracks and fx used along with a rock solid frame rate and good character design is a joy to see.
