The unlucky motorcyclist is back!

What about gameplay?

Unlike the PS2 version, the PSP will allow players to use Photo Mode, custom soundtracks, and online play. The PSP version will feature 8-player online multiplayer, while the PS2 version features multiplayer split-screen. Time attacks has also been confirmed for both consoles. However, it will only be recorded for the PSP version from the leaderboards. Tracks has also been confirmed, a total of 12 tracks can be raced, such as Wolfpack Mountain, Widow Maker, Log Jam, Cold Rush, and Vertigo.

The list of vehicles to expect in the game

  • Bikes
  • Snowmobile
  • ATV
  • Buggy
  • Rally Car
  • Snowplugger
  • Big Rig
  • Snowplow

Surprisingly, even though I was a fan of the first game, I’m not excited at all by this announcement, mostly due to the fact that it won’t be available on the PlaySation 3, but also because the graphics won’t be to my liking.

Does Sony have a problem with motorcyclists?
