I must be getting old or something, but I just couldn't get my head / eyes / fingers around what was happening on screen. Jump tricks seem randomly generated (is analog stick wiggling the new button mashing), and I never felt like any skill was involved. Even by the second mountain, I failed miserably on a mountain 7 or 8 times, then next run passed it with ease.
Maybe I just need a more sedate game. Golf anyone ?
Seems like all I was doing was pushing every button and every direction while my boarder was in the air! No real defining pattern to make anything I wanted to happen, happen! Good graphics and music! Just too confusing with the controls!

I'm SO glad that I rented this game. The graphics are great! The game play is fun. But the story-line might as well be non existent. Because of this, it starts to feel like you are doing the same thing over and over and over again, especially in the survival modes. The game is really fun, but it doesn't have much replay value and I got bored with it after about 6 - 10 hours of gameplay. I think if they do make a sequel, they should focus on actually giving the game a story! Enough of that, the controls are smooth, there were very few glitches. For the most part the game was very fluid and fun to watch. The different locations that you conquer are simply beautiful. Overall 7/10 simply because it didn't hold my interest. I thought the game was AWESOME the first day and then didn't play if after the second day! Also the store was annoying because you can only view 4 items per category and I will not buy something just so that something else will pop up. I never found anything worth buying so I had 300,000+ in game dollars with nothing to spend it on... FAIL!
Well.. thats my 2 cents. Hope it helps. Rent, yes. Buy, no.
