MotorStorm: Arctic Ridge (PSP) Reviewed

motorstorm-arctic-edge-20090602040322082_640wThe Original Motorstorm for the Playstation 3 had a rough road heading to it’s release date.  With footage from the 2005 E3 that looked simply too good to be true (which it was..) and being pushed from it’s original release date a couple times.  It was finally released in March of ‘07 to positive reviews, even though it never reached the graphical quality of the “tech demo” that was shown in 2005, it was still a very good looking game that featured some pretty fun and intense driving and a game play style of it’s own.

After a “somewhat” sequel (Pacific Rift.) This PSP version was announced, and after some delay…finally released for you’re playing pleasure.  Put into the hands of a different developer for the PSP, Motorstorm has made a transition from console to handheld like Tim Robbins from Shawshank Redemption (Crawled thru a quarter mile of shit and came out clean on the other side!.) The other developer in charge is BigBig Studio and they should be proud of what they did with this port.

Impressions of the PSPGo

500x_custom_1254159249503_pspgoSony is getting ready to drop a new PSP on us in a couple days called the PSPGo. What is the big freaking deal you ask?

Well look at the thing!.  it’s almost half the size of the original PSP!.  This isn’t just a simple SKU refresh like all the other ones. (Let’s call those SKU updates what they where, they where simply a way for Sony to try and thwart how easy it is to mod and install custom firmwares on the PSP.)

Here is a little something Sony is saying about it:

“The PSP Go, has all the functionality that older PSP hardware versions had, but includes many important and exciting changes. Unlike previous versions whose primary means of playing media was via a built-in Universal Media Disc (UMD) drive, the PSP Go does away with UMDs altogether and instead relies on a media solution combining download functionality via Sony’s PlayStation Network, larger onboard storage capacity and removable Memory Stick Duo support. This major change allows for a slim design, quicker access files and a much more quiet, energy efficient gaming experience since there are no longer any spinning UMDs.

Ok, So really, What is so great about this little thing?. Before I tell you why it’s going to Fail?.
