I got it the day it came out. Its ok but is a let down from what I expected. The online that i have played with hasn't been all that great either, but I expect it to be better when you actually play with someone you know. Also when you spectate if the other person has a shitty connection it gets real choppy. But I am loking forward to see what stoked is going to bring to the table. Hopefully some awesomeness since absinthe is making the damn thing.

Sweet Tap Dancing Baby Jesus Christ It's Dogzira!!!!!! Eh.

I have it:

Pros:
Got the Target Limited which has an extra Mountain
Mountains are Huge
Good combination of natural and man-made features

Cons:
Not enough pipe terrain. I like the mad sessions you can put together in a pipe.
Some challenges require multi-player and you can't do the best challenges until you've medal'd in all of them
It's a little too challenging. Maybe I suck but I scratch my head at some of the scores you have to get to achieve 4 medals.
My board, bindings, and boots are not in the game
Storyline is lame and unfun


The single player is a waste of time if you ask me. The multi-player is really where it's at but none of my snowboarding friends are big gamers and my gaming friends are not big snowboarders. Should've rented it first.

i was thinking that this was gonna be the tony hawk of snowboarding but from what i have heard, i am very disapointed...

however, it did get me to go check out STOKED, and that looks badass! has a SKATE look to it, but in the videos i was watching it looks like the camera can get screwy sometimes trying to get the best view of the trick but then you cant see where you are going...

Stoked I believe actually runs on the skate engine so is should be very similar to skate. And the challenges and points scale are a little more geared toward being able to do tricks with syle vs just throwin gas many spins or flips as possible. Then again doin 4 backflips is kinda fun.

I was pretty disapointed with shaun white although honestly i wastn expecting much after watching some of the earlier gameplay videos. It seems buggy and the physics just aren't smooth at all. They really needed to add some kind of auto transition type thing liek skate has so all the landings look nice and smooth. heres hoping stoked does a better job.

It was definately released way too soon. The AI of the other riders make down syndrome kids feel awesome about themselves.

I have a word limit on my cynicism

I will tell you one thing, they surely are spending a lavish amount of money in their marketing campaign. They just better hope they get their investment back


Last night I saw a over 5 minute tv commercial in comedy central , it sorta looked like a snowboarding video rather than promoting a game .


Note this is in Florida, no exactly snowboarding heaven, I am sure you guys are getting even more commercials up there...
