1080 Snowboarding

  • Excerpt: "...literally, that’s what they did. 1080 Snowboarding can be best described as Wave Race 64… in the snow. 1080 retains the same options and game play modes that were featured in Wave Race 6. Miyamoto and the design team did obtain new licenses for this wintry racing game. As mentioned, Nintendo signed on Lamar to provide models of their Snow boards for use in the game (my favorite being the Tahoe 155). Not only did they manage to obtain usage ...
  • Pros: great tricks
  • Cons: too similar to wave race

  • Excerpt: "...have tried to do with 1080 Snowboarding. It is designed to fill the extreme sports section of the Nintendo 64's game library and give the console some much needed depth. 1080 Snowboarding is relatively easy to get to grips with. The controls have been designed with fun and accurate gameplay in mind. To jump you must press the A button and the height of your jump is affected by the amount of time you hold the A button down for. If you tap the button ...
  • Pros: Fantastic snowboarding game .  Decent courses and graphics

Worse extreme sports game ever.

  • Excerpt: "...games are quite good, but 1080 Snowboarding is a bit of a lame attempt at a snowboarding game! I mean if you look at all the extreme sports games like "Tony Hawks Skateboarding" on the Playstation and "SSX" on the Playstation 2 you will find that the N64's attempt at an extreme sports game is rather lame! An extreme sports game needs speed, a variety of tricks and a little fun away from racing. "1080" has hardly any of these, it's slow, it's not ...

  • Excerpt: "I bought this game after playing it at my friends house because I enjoyed playing it. This is a classic N64 game that you should buy, if you don't already have it. It has an excellent single player which includes Trick Attack where you either do tricks on a half pipe or on an air make (one massive ramp) to get as many points as you can. There are many different tricks to perform: the more difficult ones are worth more points. There are five different ...
  • Pros: Great game .
  • Cons: The multiplayer has a maximum of two players, it should really have four player .

Nothing Special

  • Excerpt: "Snowboarding 1080 is an okay game but nothing special. It isnt addictive or hard but it is good fun and there isnt really enough courses to keep me gripped. When i said it wasnt hard i really meant that the races arent but the tricks are very hard to do (well most anyway). I do think this game is very fun because of the graphics the courses and the skills and tricks. I have this game it does last a fair bit of time. I would recommend this to 9-35 ...
  • Pros: Graphics are Good

  • Excerpt: "...its time. The graphics on the 1080 are incredible. The trick attack mode is addictive and you will come back time and time again, just to try and improve your score. The single player races are a little to easy though, it should take no more than a week to complete the game. The two player mode is great if you have a friend of similar ability level, otherwise it can get boring after a few races. If you want a snowboarding game 1080 is for you. ...
