one of the great snowboarding games

  • Excerpt: My last encounter with a 1080 snowboarding game was on the Nintendo 64 and that was a very good game that rewarded practice with great reward. So here we are with the latest incarnation of the 1080 legacy, 1080 avalanche.
  • Pros: Great graphics,nice music,superb courses,good longevity
  • Cons: people will compare it to the over the top SSX tricky

1080

  • Summary: Being an owner of the original 1080 Snowboarding for the N64, I am certain that this game is going to be as fast paced and action packed as the first. You can race friends, perform stunts and there are many things to unlock, and the GC version will undoubtedly have far superior graphics.

A dissapointing sequal to an N64 classic.

  • Summary: I own 1080 Snowboarding on the N64 and, although short-lived, it was a joy to play. The sequel now on the GC hasn't really progressed much in terms of new ideas and where it succeeds in graphics and some gameplay mechanics, it ultimately falls flat in terms of content and originality.

Super Stuff!!!

  • Summary: Well, it's been AGES since Nintendo made their last 1080 game, so I was quite excited when it came out and bought it a while after. First up is that there's NO point in choosing between SSX 3 and 1080 Avalanche. SSX has more tricks but 1080 is more of an extreme racer... get 'em both! Onto the game!

1080, yeah!

  • Summary: As a rule I hate extreme games and racing games. I just don't find them fun. However, I *love* 1080, it's easily one of the best games on Cube and is great fun. If you don't own 1080, then get a copy ASAP!

Snowboarding at it's best

  • Summary: 1080:Avalcnhe is the follow up to the original 1080 Snowboarding on the N64 a few years back, and fortunatley the series has not lost it's class. The controls do feel similar to the N64 classic being that you hold L to go faster and use most buttons to perform tricks when in the air.

Immense

  • Summary: I own the game along with its n64 predecessor, bar Zelda ocarina of time and twilight princess. 1080 is my favorite game. Beautiful to watch, instinctive to play and in terms of the endorphins and feeling you get from playing it-it's probably the closest virtual recreation of the real thing I've...

Does justice to the classic.

  • Summary: Being a fan of the classic 1080 on the N64, I'm glad to see they haven't butchered it with the sequel. Instead we see spdates of the old characters, again with the slight over enthusiasm about the soundtrack and simply fun gameplay.

Not better but different to SSX3

CarbonToe, Amazon
14 June 2004
  • Summary: I couldn't stand the wait for 1080 to come out on the Gamecube so I went out and bought SSX3 as soon as it was released and have been addicted ever since. On playing 1080 for the first time I though it was too slow, the controls were awkward and the courses were very short, but I stuck with it.
