Description official descriptions

Arctic Thunder, the fourth installment in Midway's Thunder racing series, is an extreme, action-packed snowmobile racing game that plays like a mix of Hydro Thunder and Mario Kart on ice. The main objective of the PS2 and Xbox ports is to upgrade available snowmobiles and unlock additional racers, sleds, and tracks. This is done by earning either enough points or gold medals, both of which are done by winning races. The arcade-style gameplay involves attacking opponents through armed and hand-to-hand combat, collecting power-ups, and performing stunts. Exclusive to the console ports is a Battle Mode that emphasizes the game's frantic combat.
