  • Excerpt: This game (available for download on the wii) is great fun, I played it on the N64 back in the day and when it became available for the wii I was glad to pick it back up again. Its challenging but the further you get the more there is to do. This above all else gives you a chance to hone your skills before being thrown into harder more competitive levels.

  • Excerpt: This is a review of the Gamecube edition of the 1080 snowboarding series: Is this the coolest Nintendo game ever? I don’t honestly believe I played a Nintendo game quite like this. Despite the game being utterly fantastic, despite the iced appearance of Mario and despite featuring that special finish only Nintendo can manage, 1080 feels, looks and plays like a top of the range “cool” Playstation title, forget SSX3, ignore Amped 2...

  • Excerpt: 1080 Snowboarding is one of the best snowboarding games available on any system. It's an exhilarating-looking game with a great combo-driven trick system and tracks that are actually fun to race. It also requires a lot more skill than most of the competition. Graphically, 1080 delivers smooth, evenly scrolling downhill tracks and half pipes. There's little, if any, polygon dropout in the riders, the backgrounds, or the tracks.

  • 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: The Wave Race 64 team is at it again, and this time its on the snow slopes. Miyamoto took the genious design team possibly made the best N64 racer, and exchanged the Kawasaki Jet-Ski’s for Lamar Snow boards. No, 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.

  • 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
  • Cons: Somewhat limited replayability

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
  • Cons: Not Very addictive .
