I had downloaded the demo, and thought that the first person mode was very interesting but didn't realy know what to expect from the full game. I fancied something a bit differernt from you shooters and racers that I've bought in recent months so thought I'd give this a try
Tell you what, Its been a long time since I had one of those. "OH MY GOD IS THAT REALLY THE TIME, HOW LONG HAVE I BEEN PLAYING THIS" moments.
It is SOoooo addictive, although there are only 14 events to play, they are all fairly differernt events. Very little button bashing in this one. The simplicity of the menu is excellent. No messing about with irrelevent stuff, you dive straight into the events have a bit practice, and then do either the challenges , take part in events to try and earn single player golds or go online and take part in 4 player events against your friends.
The challenges, of which there are about 30 start off pretty easy then get progessively harder. You hane to do things like snowboarding down a course with your controlls reversed so when you push keft the guy go right, or go down a run trying to avoid snowmen on the race line and still beat the alloted time. You'll spend many hours on these believe me.
Online though is really where the fun begins, if you get two or three mates in a room with your comms on, and set up a multi event mini games its brilliant. If you cant find people on your FL to play, just jump into a random room and you'll soon make some new ones.
Really enjoying the first person view, its amazing, and really does feel as if you are skiing, jumping of plumetting down the bobsleigh run. If you have a rumble pad its even more realistic.
At the reduced price, you'd be daft not to buy this amazing game.
