  1. A must have for racing fans with a PS2, Arctic Edge is a game that can look face to face at successful franchises like Burnout and Need for Speed.
  2. MotorStorm: Arctic Edge for the PS2 is still great despite missing a features the PSP game has. At its very core, it does everything that the PS3 games have been doing for years now, with the one and only major difference being the visual sacrifice.

    MotorStorm Arctic Edge is also available for the PSP. Both versions are great race games. The PSP version is a little bit better, but this part is also fun. It’s got great replay value, interactive tracks, nice graphics and great audio. A good PS2 title.
  4. The environments in this game might be pretty cold but I’m happy to say the game is pretty hot.
  5. A seriously impressive entry on a system some may think couldn't really do the series justice, MotorStorm: Arctic Edge is exactly what you expect from the franchise, just minus the soundracks, photos and online. Still good, though.
  6. It’s clear that MotorStorm: Arctic Edge is merely just another PSP to PS2 port geared at appealing to gamers who might not own Sony’s portable system. For a PS2 racer, this is still a solid title worth your cash and the controls certainly make each race a lot easier and more enjoyable.
  7. Consider it as a stocking stuffer for the PS2 holdouts in your life who haven’t gotten around to next gen yet.

    MotorStorm: Arctic Edge, while not as impressive as Pacific Rift, managed to still be a fun little arcade racer on the PlayStation 2. Though IMotorStorm: Arctic Edge, while not as impressive as Pacific Rift, managed to still be a fun little arcade racer on the PlayStation 2. Though I can't comment on the original PSP version of this game, I'd still say it's worth picking up if you're a fan of the series. Full Review »
