This is a game you won't even look at after you play SSX!

Summary: This is a game that I just don't like. The controls aren't even close to as smooth as SSX's and what's this nonsense about this game having more tricks than SSX? That's crazy talk! In this game you have to get huge air just to pull a misty! In SSX, however you can pull a quadruple misty with three grabs off the same amout of air. I believe that i have said enough to convince anyone to save their money and not buy this game.
Excerpt: UEP Systems has a long running snowboarding heritage spanning back to the earlier days of the good ol' PlayStation, with Code Alien marking the fifth game in the Coolboarders series, which also marks its first outing on the PS2. With EA's fabulous SSX already on the scene drawing in fans Code Alien definitely has its work cut out for it. The main core of Code Alien revolves around the Snowboarding Combined mode.
