metric So my games came in the mail. Not really a fan of Stoked to be honest. Maybe I just need to play it more, but the controls seem wonky to me and the graphics are pretty bad. I actually enjoy the Shaun White game a lot more.

Might have to pick up SSX at some point too, although I definitely prefer the somewhat realistic games.

I've been playing SSX for the past few days. Definitely not realistic, but then again, I didn't buy it for that reason. Just looking to play mellow game and get some big air at the same time. The game is fun!

Stoked looks pretty cool too!

one HUGE dislike is the fact that i was on the 3rd or 4th location and the objective was to get the highest score, but no bullshit 4 seconds after the start my opponent (the cpu) already had 700k points and im only at 10k...took me like 12 tries before i could get passed it but thats just ridiculous
Tricking is kind of hard because you basically have to go as slow and horizontal as possible on the run. If you get any duplicate tricks, you're better off rewinding. Don't worry about the CPU so much, just concentrate on getting your score higher and it will even out by the end of the race.

I love the game so far but my biggest complaint is the large number of bottomless-pit drops on the race events. The rewind feature doesn't help at all unless you're already in a huge lead, so you basically have to pause and restart the drop if you fall more than once. Not only that, the game seems to place drops where you should be landing jumps.

Stoked! is what I play as well. It's a fun game, but the Live multi-player is non-existent. The Amped series is pretty good too..

THIS. To me the whole point of these games is to have something to make you feel like you're doing the activity when you cant actually be doing it. Skate made me feel like I was out on the street again. Ultra realistic where hard tricks in real life were hard tricks in the game. I wasn't going 50 mph after one push & catching 100 feet of air off a curb. When I'm not snowboarding, I WANT TO BE. So playing a game like SSX, where I feel not at all like I'm riding, doesn't appease that. It's fun. But its not snowboarding.
