New contenders have entered the race, their vehicles are faster, stronger and equipped with new, experimental kind of weapons. Every each contender believes that their car is best equipped and will lead them to victory and an unthinkable amount of prize money.

First, the really bad points: This is a lazy port from the Wii version. No controller support, no PC options. Too little effort put in to this PC version.
I really don't like playing racing games on the keyboard and I have a controller for a reason. PC arcade / racing games should support controllers as a minimum requirement in my opinion!
The game play is quite fun, but it can be frustrating. I think the AI balance is all over the place, as I found some levels utterly easy and others hard as nails - not much in-between and the difficulty felt quite unfair on some levels.
Graphics are nice enough - not next-gen, of course, but it's a budget game and at the end of the day it's the game play that's important. Looks pretty enough, though.
It's a bit too short. I finished it in just a few sittings and I don't feel like there's much point revisiting it in the near future although it was entertaining enough to make me think I might play again one day.
I am actually a fan of Team6 and it's disappointing that they weren't able to spend some more time on this game to bring it to the PC properly.
There's a lot of potential here game play-wise, but it just doesn't really come together and the whole game just ends up being 'meh'. Perhaps pick it up on sale to pass an afternoon or two.

I tried to play Glacier 3 The Meltdown, but the graphics is below my expectations. We can consider it as being acceptable, if we think this was a Wii game previously. The sound is not good at all, but I appreciate the fun offered by this racing game. The gameplay is reasonable an the game compensates by other advantages. Players can enjoy different types of cars, landscapes are surprisingly amazing and introduce you to a winter universe. There are also different weapons that help you to finish the deadly racing provided by the game. I recommend the game for entertainment, does not have an amazing graphics, but it is playable and it is winter, so you have to try it.
