The developer has managed to maintain what made the first two games in the series so popular, yet resisted simply giving people a cut down version of what they've already played. The Arctic setting makes for some great track design and incredible visuals, but there's just something holding the game back from being a true classic. The Festival mode feels a tad too formulaic and sterile, with modern racing games doing a better job at all the stuff outside the actual racing. It's also still a fairly tough game, despite its arcade visuals and premise. Still, with a ton of content, impressive multiplayer functionality and impeccable production values, MotorStorm: Arctic Edge deserves a place in your PSP collection".
