To quote: Greetings, and welcome to the next exciting installment of Split/Second. I'm happy to say we've managed to cram all of what made Split/Second great onto the PSP.
At Disney Interactive Studios, we're really proud of what Black Rock Studio created and were excited to see what Sumo Digital could add to the PSP version.
As Split/Second was a visual treat, we knew that we couldn't compromise for both the size of the power plays and sheer on-screen excitement. We set out to create a spectacular-looking PSP game and I hope that everyone will agree that this is one of the best-looking racing games on the PSP.
Another vital ingredient was to make sure that the handling and controls suited the PSP.

The end result should be a fun, quick and skillful driving system that rewards users who push the cars to the max.
To add something completely new to the game we then added four all new Challenge modes which test the drivers in completely different...
