If you're looking for a game that uses the Wii fit board, this is the one! Game play is good, using the remote and nunchuk is a little awkward, the wire keeps getting in the way, though it gives me more incentive to try out one of those wireless setups for the game. It might just be my wiimote and nun, though sometimes the nun would be unresponsive during the play, unplugging and replugging it would make it work again.
There's so much to explore in this game, hidden rails and secret spots! You can enjoy the mountain trails or resort trails, there's even a great spot in the resort called Kangaroo that has tons of rails, jumps and even a halfpipe to enjoy, I've been spending a lot of time in that area, it's a fun area!
I do think they could have improved the controls on the wiimote, for some reason it seems a little slow to react to what you want it to do. some tricks are harder to pull off then others and learning the combo's of tricks can be a pain, spend lots of time in the school until you get them pounded into your head and you'll do great on the slopes!
You get 'points' for every heli ride, gondola ride, lift ride, times you fall, times you hit someone, it tracks your speed, you can keep track of almost everything within the game. There's a competition area where you can try your luck at beating other boarders, the first few are pretty easy, after that they get harder! You'll need lots of practice to beat some of them.
Fun part of the mountain is you can cause avalanches and try to out run them! Hopefully you don't fall while trying to keep ahead of it! hehehehe
I haven't tried the Skiing part yet, as I like snowboard so much more, so I can't really say much on that, though I'm sure it's just as much fun for someone who likes to ski.
All in all, a great game, just what I've wanted for my Wii fit board! This one goes on the list of must buy!
