Packed with 12 racing routes, each of which can be played forward or in reverse, offering up multiple paths crammed with huge arching jumps, winding caverns and falling debris that require quick thinking and nerves of steel, Arctic Edge will test even the hardest MotorStorm racer. Controlling each vehicle is simple and intuitive, much like the PS3 iteration of the breakneck racer. The L button accelerates, while the R button brakes, with the Circle and X buttons functioning as your boost and handbrake respectively.
Once you've got to grips with the controls, Arctic Edge gets down to business as you play through and master each and every route on the grueling courses conjured. There are eight vehicles classes available for you to choose from as you progress through the game, with each class offering up a trio of models to unlock and race with.
While Rally cars, bikes, quads and Big Rigs make a welcome return to the Festival, there are some new additions for MotorStorm's PSP debut. These include the hulking Snow Ploughs and the sleek and speedy Snowmobiles, both of which offer up their own unique ways of helping you win each race. With the Snow Plough, nothing can stand in your way as you carve a path through the course, wreaking havoc with the smaller, less sturdy vehicles, while the Snowmobile lets you move quickly in and around other vehicles straight off the starting line.
