Product Overview

MotorStorm has ripped-up the Monument Valley desert, it's obliterated everything that stood in its path on Pacific Rift, and now it's set for a whole new challenge. Battling the frozen wasteland of Alaska's Arctic Edge. MotorStorm Arctic Edge delivers brutal off-road racing in the breathtaking yet lethal and unpredictable setting of Alaska. With temperatures plummeting, sudden avalanches, broken ice bridges, and three different racing altitudes, Arcitc Edge is the most inhospitable environment the Stormers have ever faced. With grip at a premium, and in addition to the six vehicle classes from the original MotorStorm, two new vehicles have been introduced to combat the ice, the cold and the snow - the Snowcat and the Snow Machine. One has the power and size to blast through packed snow, while the other has the grip and pace to combat most of what the sub-zero conditions can throw at it. MotorStorm Arctic Edge is great for single player action, online multiplayer or playing with friends.

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.
