When Shaun Whites Snow Boarding came out many people jumped at the idea of having a Snow Boarding game. But now theres some competition. And this Snow Boarding game is really good. It has amazing graphics. The online play is amazing and really adds a lot to the game. But one thing i really hated about this game is its all try, lose, repeat gameplay for the campaign. Very annoying and very time consuming if you dont know what to do. Also when you screw up the person that talks to you really makes you sound dumb, which in the beginning its kind of funny, but then it gets very annoying. Also when they show you what trick you have to pull off the camera angles are just terrible and make the campaign really difficult. So overall the game is really good, its just the campaign that can get frustrating sometimes. And to mention, this game is also very cheap for what you get. Try it out.
First of all, to anyone who hated the tutorial, I didn't have much trouble with it and beat it easily and I don't consider myself that great. Also I liked the controls better than alot of other snowboarding games. If you have ever played Skate and liked the controls, you would know what I mean. Basically, everything people thought was annoying, didn't seem that challenging. The dynamic weather system makes the game especially realistic. I would definately recommend this game to anyone looking for a game as close to the real thing as possible
Wow, this game is so great its probably 1000 times better than shaun white snowboarding for a bunch of reasons: 1. Graphics are great 2. Backcountry is raw 3. Sponsors are dope 4. you don't have to collect tokens or whatever like you do in shaun white. 5. mountains are huge 6.Controls are a billion times better
There are a few flaws though some of them are: 1. Not a huge selection of gear 2. Not a lot of mountains
