    I was tempted to get this. Is it like a snowboarding version of skate?

    Never heard of this before. This thread made me grab it and just played a couple hours. Pretty cool, seems massive with all the mountains and different runs on each one. :eek3:


    Def reminds me of skate, just slower style tricks.

    Here is my mini review after a few hours of playing:

    Pro tip: hold down on the right stick (like crouching for an ollie) to get speed. I dunno why but it took me a couple hours to figure this out. :o Helps a lot in the races.

    Too many button presses to select an event, minor but not necessary. And I hate how they have you press A then X, why can't it all be one button so I can at least mash on it to get to an event? Hit A to select event, A again to skip intro, X to accept event, then X to start event. No need to have to press X twice, it's pointless.

    And on the challenges, if you ever played skate you know how when you bail you mash on the button to restart? Well that's fine cause it's the same buttons every time. Here, if you crash you hit back to restart, if you just fail (not get enough points) you hit circle. WTF? It's easy to hit the wrong button and bring you back to the menu when you just want to hurry up and restart. Again, everything I have talked about so far should be the same button so you can mash on it to get to where you want to be.

    And 3 times now in free ride when I crashed into a wall or something they re-spawn me right near it where I can't get passed it, just keep crashing in the same spot to to the point I had to back out and re-load the hill.

    If you are used to Skate it will help a ton in this game but Skates controls are waaaay more responsive. These aren't unplayable by any means but just kind of sloppy, especially hit detection on boardslides.

    Overall for a snowboarding game this gen this is probably the one but then again there is not much to pick from. It's average and entertaining so far but I don't see myself playing this that long like I did with Skate. I'd say 7/10

    :rofl: if you played the first game, you would have been even more pissed off. in the original, you had to find each event on the mtn. having everything on a list to choose from is so much better.

    pro pro tip: you can carve. hold back on right stick to crouch, then hold either lt or rt while turning in that respective direction to carve.

    you can come to a stop and then walk back up the mtn

    i like the fact that there isn't a "rail magnet" and that you really have to work and line up your approaches, and when you pull off a series of slides, it's that much sweeter

    your rant about the buttons is user error :hsughno: but i know what you mean, i accidentally went all the way back to the main menu once due to reflexes

    final pro tip: when there's an event where you need to set a higher score, you can usually just bust out a bunch of prewinded 360 grabs to get an easy 1000-2000 pts before the hit, cuz you build up bonuses for good landings. i was actually able to rock out about 13k pts when i just needed to beat 5k.

    try to go for bonuses, im a hucker :o

    yeah like I said, minor stuff really. :o

    Good lookin the carving, I had no idea.

    And that prewind is kind of odd at first. Hold left grab and press right on the stick or vice versa. You would thing it would be left/left or right/right. Nothing you cant get used to though...

    and I dunno why it took me so long to figure out how to speed up. I couldn't even beat the first race, I was ahead until like 2 gates left then dude comes flying by me like I'm standing still so I knew I was missing something. I pressed left and/or right grab, up on the stick, pretty much everything but down. lol

    Yeah, I was thinking about that earlier and I guess it does make sence. :o

    The more I play the more I like it. Just checked and at 25% completion since I started playing last night. I may have underestimated it at first. Pretty solid game.

    wtf does hucker mean anyway?

    I installed it to my HDD and it loads too fast for me to read.

    Anyway, I pretty much kicked this games ass. Just beat the last of the 7 challenges and the only primary objective I have left is to "Become a Snowboard Legend" with 1300 Influence points. I'm at 11XX. I got addicted for a few days anyway. :bigthumb:

    A few of those challenges are pretty badass with some major jumps.

    One more thing, I wish there was one master list of all the events and stuff on all the mountains that you could check out from one screen instead of going to each individual mountain to see what you have done/have left to do.
