I really enjoy this game. I suppose this makes a nice change from the over release titles. You can just chill out while riding down vast snow covered mountains.
Firstly it goods very good with a real feeling of size. The mountains are very very big and riding top to bottom can take almost 10 minutes. Everything looks and runs very smoothly.
Sound wise there is an impressive amount of music tracks to try your ear to. Most of these tracks are alright and after a while start to grow on you.
Game play is kept simple. This could be a problem if you are after something deeper. Otherwisw the control system gives immediate access to all the tricks from the start.
The game is packed with ideas and nice touches. The stand out thing for me is the short films between key sections of the game which are very funny. This makes progressing the game more interesting and worth your time.
The game is big. I was able to finish two Xbox 360 games within a week but after almost three weeks I have only unlocked about half the courses.
The only con I can think of is the difficulty curve jumps about a bit. Some missions seem very easy, the next mission almost impossible and then very easy once more.
This game is not ground breaking but it is fun to play. Whats more important than that?
