Product Description

Product Description

Sega unleashes the fury with Snow Surfers, a snowboarding game for Sega Dreamcast. Boarders have the option of three game modes to choose from including: Free Ride, Super Pipe and Match Race. Players can shred through a series of five courses, bust crazy tricks on the halfpipe or leave their friends in a trail of fresh powder in the split-screen competition mode.

Catch huge air, slide rails and bust 720 rodeo flips in this fast-paced sports game for Sega Dreamcast. Thanks to the graphic power of the system, characters and courses are created in astonishing life-like detail. Cruise down the mountain with full-speed 60-frame-per-second and watch the chills run down your spine!

Three modes available: Free Ride featuring five trail courses and a hidden bonus course; Super Pipe with two halfpipes; and Match Race for two player competition. Free Ride mode has an abundance of trail style courses and obstacles including mountain slopes and forest glade runs with shortcuts through countryside farms, tunnels and bridges. The Urban Striker mode within Free Ride allows boarders to take shortcuts through clock towers, rooftops and alleyways. Six main characters with unique styles and varying degrees of snowboarding skills--jump, technique, power balance, quickness and max speed. There is also an additional main character: Jimmy. Players can customise the characters with different costumes, board styles and riding styles. Match Race mode features split-screen racing (either horizontal or vertical division). Snow Surfers has awesome 3-D graphics. Perform basic grab tricks like tail grab, mute, method, melancholy to more intricate tricks like 900 misty flips. Uncover hidden characters, courses and boards. Boarders sport actual Bonfire and Solomon gear.

Amazon.co.uk Review

One hundred years from now, a historian may categorise snowboarding's greatest achievement as its expansion of the English vocabulary. For its part, snowboarding has brought new meanings to the words "indy", "mute", "method" and "melancholy." For those not attuned to the sport's lingo, these are all terms for snowboarding manoeuvres that generally refer to grabbing a particular part of the board while airborne. Not a word of this terminology is overlooked in the first snowboarding game for Dreamcast. Also included are appropriately stylised characters, each with two outfits to choose from, and licensed gear from real snowboarding companies Bonfire and Salomon.

Armed with a glossary in the form of a user manual, players will soon be able to talk the talk. But in this game, walking the walk, or rather pulling the tricks, requires quite a bit of controller dexterity. Luckily the game is not based solely on snowboarding tricks, but also has a healthy dose of racing at its core. What makes this game stand out is the length and detail of each downhill course. Jumping off the roof of sheep farms, avoiding falling icicles, and catching the spotlight of a hovering helicopter are all in a day's play in Snow Surfers--and that's just the first track!

A unique two-player mode challenges players to shrink the opponent's split screen by outscoring him or her. Track graphics are up to snuff, but the players look a bit chunky. --Jeff Young

4.0 out of 5 stars it's gnarly dude 7 July 2000
By A Customer
Really easy to pick up, and once you have you won't wanna put it down again as you go off on the piste. The characters tend to be a bit naff, over-indulging in cheesy boarder-speak, but there's some smart tunes on the game, and loads of smart levels. It all starts off as pretty regular paths, dodging a few sheep, but not much else. However, you are soon racing through town rooftops, across ravines and through alien landing craft (I kid you not). The tricks are the most satisfying part - landing a good one is a very good feeling - but beware of getting too clever too fast or you'll come a cropper. The levels get really hard really quickly, so it's a good value for money as you'll be playing it for a very long time.

This is real fun. I am not a real fan of snow boarding games but this is just quality, great music, great tricks, great cheesey snow boarding speak, and ultra good mega resolution graphics that will do your eyes in. Buy it, u will have a laugh with it, 2 player is also very cool.
