Product Overview

MotorStorm's breakneck racing festival moves to the unpredictable terrains and harsh temperatures of Alaska. In true MotorStorm style, players will throw traditional offroad driving and caution to the wind where the ultimate goal in the festival is to not only win, but to survive.

Lunatics must race against vicious opponents in arctic conditions and deal with the dangerous Alaskan terrain featuring sudden avalanches, broken ice bridges and three different, and completely unforgiving, racing altitudes.

The game features MotorStorm's breathtaking racing action alongside online multiplayer where you can race against other players using Infrastructure Mode on PSP system to make it to the summit of the online global leaderboards.

Review If this review seems a bit late by IGN standards, that's because it is. While playing through the first portable outing in the MotorStorm franchise, I ran into a fairly significant snag: the online was giving me serious problems -- to the effect of locking up and then shutting down my PSP. Thankfully, it came down to a PSN ID error, so if you're running into the same roadblock I did, delete your PSN account from your PSP (head to the Account Management option in the XMB, hit Triangle and then delete the account, then create a new one)...It's a good thing I did wait for a solution, though, as it completed the sense that this is MotorStorm, without any corners cut or features lost; this is the complete package, and the online complement is one of the better handled ones available on Sony's little portable that could. Getting a podium placement at the end of a race will net you points which in turn help you level up ranking-wise and earn new customization unlockables. There's a full friends list complement, leaderboards and you can actually invite people through the game that will show up on your PS3 friends list when you end up signing on there, as well as opt to ignore players, all of which makes MotorStorm feel nicely tethered to the full, "proper" PSN experience...Though the 20 tracks (including the great Celldweller remix of "Propane Nightmares" from series favorite Pendulum, plus The Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, Motorhead and even Radiohead) are great, they can start to grate a bit halfway through the Festival. Thankfully, a custom soundtrack option was also provided, though there's limited control over how to play your tunes. Still, it's a welcome feature, and one that, along with the photo mode and online play, brings it in line with the latest console version quite nicely...I could prattle on for another thousand words about how much I love the level design of some of the tracks or how the handling just feels right for all the vehicles, but these are things you'll end up discovering for yourself when you plunk down the change for the UMD or downloadable version -- and you absolutely should. This is MotorStorm, in its entirety, in a wholly new setting but without losing anything that made the series so damn fun on the PS3. Without a doubt, this is one of the best racing games you can find on the PSP. Go buy it.
