4.0 out of 5 stars Simply brilliant., 3 Nov 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: StokEd (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
After playing Shaun White for a year or so, I stumbled upon this, and instantly forgot SW.

This is far more realistic, in that you can't do stupidly huge arcade-style tricks, and it's harder to pull a trick off and make it look good. And making it look good is actually a part of the game! That, coupled with brilliant scenery, levels, backgrounds and overall feel of the game make it the best snowboarding game for the Xbox, to my mind. BUT...I think actual snowboarders will enjoy this a lot more than anyone else, as it's all about the feel of it rather than crazy tricks and super high scores - you can happily spend 10 mins just cruising the hill without even thinking of starting up a challenge, even more so when you unlock the helicopter and can drop off anywhere you like.

Only down sides are the music is a bit iffy at times (shoddy German hiphop aint my thing) and it gets quite easy once you've mastered how to stomp some nice tricks.

But overall I would definately encourage anyone to get this.
