    Hours of family fun with Artic Thunder. Game has several features that provide action throughout every race. Our whole family plays it and have gotten several hours of great times.

    While not terribly complex, loads of action and fun for the whole family...beginners and experienced players can share the course and excitement of opening new characters and tracks.

    While not terribly complex, the racing itself makes for excellent fun, and the intricacies and unlockable features are more than enough here to keep you coming back for more.

    The game is nothing but an exercise in pressing X at the right time. [Nov 2001, p.110]

    It seemed like Midway wanted EVERYONE, no matter how bad they are, to be in the race. This might appeal to those who aren’t really good at this game, but it just takes away any skill needed to be a good racer and almost leaves it to blind and random luck.
