Midway's new snowmobile race-and-battle game Arctic Thunder has hit store shelves and the GR mailbox. And as the resident GR snowmobiler, it's up to me to see if it captures the magic, or at least is entertaining.
After spending some time with this thing, I have reached two conclusions. No, it doesn't, and no, it isn't.
Arctic Thunder is a port of the arcade game of the same name. But while the arcade version was a success due to a big dorky snowmobile controller and an equally dorky fan that blows cold air in your face while you play, the home versions contains neither gimmick.
