I can't think of a "singe word" (i.e awesome, perfect etc...) that can describe how good this game is. This a great game to introduce the system on. Amped3 looks great, it's user friendly, its got a good blend of tricked out wackiness and realism. The mountains are incredibly huge, and there are plenty of customizable option including the ability to add your own start points and trick objects to a mountain. Precision players will find it as much fun as button mashers. Not to mention the snow mobile, sleds, hang gliders, etc... Want to throw a snowball? that's included Want to Spray people with snow as you carve the slope... check.
Challenge types are scattered to promote exploration and the variety is good with everything from follow the leader variants, to specific trick type challenges (i.e. spins, flips, grabs, aerials, rails, carving), to sled and injury challenges. Each challenge can be skipped or repeated as much as you like, and everything has a ranking leaderboard on xboxlive.
I'm not really into "sport" games but Amped3 is hard to put down at times. If you want a games that leaves you feeling satisfied, this IS your ticket
This game is just a blast to play. I don't really understand all the bad/average reviews it's been getting. I'm finding myself to be less and less relient on what a lot of game journalist's opinions are about games. The storymode in amped 3 is as hilarious and outrageous as any game I've played. The sledding and snowmobiling are very fun as well. Now that this game has dropped below 30 bucks, I might consider buying it. If you still haven't rented this game though, what are you waiting for?
AMPED is the best looking SNOWBOARD game ever..hov

This game is BEAUTIFUL and smooth the cut scenes are hilarious and wierd. The bad is there is NO ONLINE AT ALL and no 2 player in home except i mini game toobing...WEAK!! the story is short and can be completed in a day or 2 MAX. the cut scenes are just crazy and worth a view. OVERALL this games a good renter and fun but no replay after you beat it. This is definately the best LOOKING and handeling SNOWBOARD GAME ever and you even get to ride a snowmobile at anytime in game on any mountain....fun
