Summary: They played it for a while and then moved on to other games. They liked it while they had it - I thought it, like most video games was a waste of money. But the kids enjoyed it until they won consistently. Then they donated it to a local thrift shop.
Summary: I rented this game and enjoyed playing it. So i bought it. The levels are very big and have a lot of things to do in them. Which is different than all of the other snowboarding games. It was a to hard though. I couldnt even get pasted the 2nd level. The music is by far the best out of every other video game!! I ended up taking the game back just because it was so hard. The buttons are also way to easy.
Summary: Take the downhill courses from Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, replace the skateboards with snowboards, and you've got yourself a damn fine snowboarding game, right? Wrong. Although Shaun Palmer's Pro Snowboarder borrows heavily from Tony, it's not nearly as good. Not by a long shot. Maybe it's the way your character occasionally lands tricks that look impossible while falling inexplicably at other times. Maybe it's the way he tries to go uphill when you don't want him to.
Summary: I have played the demo to this game on Tony Hawks Pro Skater 3 and it looks too easy. In real life it if impossible to do a backflip off the ground just by jumping, but it's possible in this game. The graphics look good just the gameplay needs worked on.
