Motorstorm: Arctic Edge is a smooth driving off-road racer, and one of the most fun offerings when it comes to arcade racers on the PSP. While there are some foibles here and there, it's still worth a look if you're a PSP owner looking for a fun and addictive arcade racer to take on the move.

Unexpectedly brilliant, then, Motorstorm: Arctic Edge is an extremely likeable addition to the Motorstorm family, which provides a hectic racing experience that will get the blood pumping through your veins. Vehicles may not handle perfectly, and certain courses are not entirely effective, but for the majority of time spent playing Arctic Edge, it’s hard not to be taken for one of the most aggressive and entertaining rides of the year.
Beau, dynamique, très complet et vraiment rafraîchissant, Motorstorm : Arctic Edge constitue une alternative de choix à la fameuse simulation Gran Turismo. Si vous aimez l'arcade et que le grand frisson vous importe plus que le réalisme, il n'y a pas à hésiter une seule seconde : foncez l'acheter !
Schade, ich wäre so gerne stundenlang übers Eis geschliddert! Leider bieten die weitläufigen Strecken von Motorstorm: Arctic Edge kaum Gelegenheiten für Drift-Manöver. Außerdem fällt das Fahrverhalten auf Eis und Schnee selbst für einen Arcade-Raser zu unrealistisch aus - es fühlt sich eher an, als wäre ich auf matschigen Feldwegen unterwegs. Trotzdem hat mir der Titel jede Menge Spaß bereitet, weil er das bewährte Arcade-Konzept der Serie gelungen auf die PSP transportiert. Das Spiel ist eben keine rutschige Rallye durch Schnee und Eis, sondern eher ein klassisches Motorstorm in verschneiter Kulisse. Die zwölf Strecken sorgen dank jeder Menge abenteuerlicher Rampen, Tunnel und Abkürzungen für turbulente Rennen, die technisch blitzsauber ablaufen. Auch die Lauscher werden mit flotten Rock- und Breakbeat-Tracks verwöhnt. Schade, dass der Schwierigkeitsgrad vor allem zu Beginn sehr niedrig angesetzt ist.
It's a testament to Arctic Edge's intricate tracks and energetic racing that its notable problems are so easy to overlook. Aside from its online issues, this is what you'd expect from a MotorStorm game in portable form, and the multifaceted courses and vehicle variety provide plenty of reasons to keep returning, even after you've completed the Festival. If you want to kick up some snow and dirt, this is a fun way to do it.
Arctic Edge is a good portable racer, but I didn't find the tracks varied enough to keep my attention for more than a few minutes at a time. But hey, with an arcade-style racer like this, that's pretty much all you need -- and at least it's not costing you quarters each time.
