Arctic Thunder - ps2


The game itself is quite difficult. I'm not sure if the AI is super-human or if I just super-suck. You are literally required to locate and use the shortcuts and collect as many turbo-boosts as you can if you ever hope to win a race. I did enjoy the...

Arctic Thunder


Listen! Lots of noise! Look! A huge explosion! Good, eh? No, wait a minute, come back and I'll do some more...

Tons of replay value and interesting level designs

An okay racing game; not as good as it could have been

Arctic Thunder has slipped on ice on the way home


When Midway's Hydro Thunder hit the arcade market, Midway was just coming back into the trend. After releasing Mortal Kombat 4, it left an empty stand for Midway's once dominating arcade market. In 1999, Hydro Thunder hit the market, soon after in...

The ability to unlock secrets with a semi-enduring points system

Constantly inconsistent framerates, abominable weapons system

A Word Of Wisdom - Avoid Arctic Thunder Like The Plague


Have you ever played a dreadful, miserable, horrible and utterly unplayable racing game? Ever booted up one of those highly anticipated (or in this case, barely known) racers, started a regular race just to get accustomed to the gameplay, and found out...
