Game description: Experience the white-knuckle thrill of trying to harness the power of over-engineered sleds all the way to the finish line. Race beyond boundaries in this all-out world of high-powered sled racing where speed is a necessity and losing is not an option. Sled Storm, the fuel-injected addition to the EA Sports Big line-up, delivers on high speed, big drops and excessive inclines. Screaming sleds compete in volume with the biggest beats from the industrial charts, which is just what is needed to push you over the edge. Unique shortcuts, incredible track design and cutting-edge machines take you into worlds of neck-and-neck arcade action.
The sequel to the PlayStation's first snowmobile racing game, Sled Storm combines the ability to perform aerial tricks with arcade-style racing down a series of seven snow- and ice-covered course. The eight male and female characters have varying trick abilities and they each have distinct snowmobiles, or "sleds," individually rated in acceleration, top speed, handling, and stability. New sleds for each character can be earned by placing first on the majority of courses.

||PCSX2 1.3 Git 28 of May||GSdx||SPU2-X||refraction: This is now fixed in r5477. Also i found while testing, the missing polys at the bottom of the screen can either be solved by using "extra" VU clamping while using MicroVU or switch to Super VU with normal clamping. That said, SuperVU is a MUCH faster option (i'm talking about 20fps faster) if you aren't able to use MTVU.|
