i picked it up on sunday for PS3 played it for about six hours.
I don't like that you can only create one user profile.
all mountains are rideable at the start of the game so really no point to do any of the challenges as far as i know.
it is cool to finally have a snowboard game to play. I find i'm either going to fast or to slow most of the time.
I would suggest renting like somebody posted earlier before buying.

You are correct sir, Stoked will be available on XBOX 360 only . Maybe in the future it will be available for multiple platforms .

Some good points and bad points on Burton's.. er sorry Shaun White's snowboarding.

Controls are a bit weird to get used to but rather realistic. It's not easy for sure and there is NO forgiveness for popping off the jump at the wrong point. Even if you're only a little off. Grinding boxes and rails is a bit odd. I still havent been able to work that out.

I do LOVE how you get to ride a never ending half pipe while it loads a mountain. Great innovation. However the controls in the pipe make no god damn sense at all. The game also lacks a point. Aside from piling up cash to buy a better board, I'm not really driven to do it. The mountains are huge though. I can see it taking a while to get tired of them even if there are only 4.

The multiplayer trumps all however. Being able to just ride with friends or random folk makes this game a keeper.

DO NOT GET THIS GAME FOR PS2
it is a joke tony hawk 2/3 has more customization than this and there is a set trail to go on not a whole mountain. waste of $40. its like an arcade game. no getting off the board or anything no other things and generic snowboards the first board is called the ""Vannila"" er how ever you spell that f***** word
im just pissed cuz i blew $42 on this pointless game maybe its better on the next gen consoles but this verson sucks dick like black manness haha

This game is horrid. I would rather play amped or ssx any day. Hopefully Stoked is better. Sucks that its on 360 though because I need more games for my ps3.

i bought mine for the wii, pretty realistic turns with heal toe pressure on the balance board. besides that it sucks, graphics are decent, really cartoony, but every game on the wii is like that. not as cool as the trailers looked thats for sure.

Oh god please help my PS3 needs games too !!! At this point I'm just waiting to see what Stoked is about, I'll give it a shot just like Shaun White Snowboarding don't have anything to lose I guess... well maybe 60 bucks but its worth a shot.

The best way I can describe it is "decent." It's not as amazing as the hypsters made it out to be, it's not as horrid as some will make it out to be.

Control, in a lot of respects, is similar to Skate in concept, but in practice, not near as responsive. The design of the mountain is pretty good- always something to jump off of or jib. Decent variety, and the art direction is rooted in reality.

Graphically, it's geared more to the macro than the micro. Draw distances are amazing, but some of the textures look rugged up close. But considering that most of the gameplay is zoomed out, it's fine.

Biggest problem is the progression. Having all four mountains (five if you get the Target edition) is a blessing and a curse. It's cool to be able to do what you want, when you want, but there's little motivation to start knocking out challenges.

All and all, I'd say it's a great starting off point. It's worth a rent, for sure, and I'll give it an A for effort, but here's hoping that the sequel is better.
