Summary: If you love motorstorm don't forget about this one! This is a GREAT port!!! This is my favorite motor storm!! Even if you think its not worth going back to ps2 you just have to try this last great racing game for one great system!
Summary: I have all the MotorStorm games, from the original in Monument Valley, to Pacific Rift, to Apocalypse, and even Arctic Edge for PSP. I love the series and play them a lot. My first experience was seeing it as my first PS3 game with it's amazing graphics. It seemed odd that a PS3 series would go backwards a generation to the PS2. The PS2 version is a port of the PSP version, with some added stuff. The PSP version played and looked great for a portable handheld.
Summary: This PS2 port of "Motorstorm: Arctic Edge" took me by surprise. It's every bit as fun as the PSP version and the PS3 Motorstorms. Obviously, the graphics are nowhere near as detailed as it's PS3 counterparts...but "Arctic Edge" manages to rock the PS2 processor rather well. As indicated by the title, it transplants the mechanics from the last two Motorstorms into a winter climate setting.
Summary: Motorstorm is a (near) next-generation racing experience on the PS2. The graphics are great, the presentation is slick, the controls are good, the vehicle variety is cool, wipeouts and explosions are wild, the sound is fantastic, the split-screen is fun, etc. If you've been wondering if the PS2 still has any life left in it the answer is "yes" and Motorstorm is the proof!
Conclusion: motor storm on the psp version could never get close to the detail of the ps3 version,but this is a very nice looking game & well made. but there is no feeling of extra speed when you use the nitro button like there is in say burnout on the psp etc which is a trade mark of this type of game.
