Summary: What a dud. I played it for about 30 minutes and that was enough for me. When you can press a button and still make it down the hill without controlling the direction of your snowboarder, you have a crap game in my opinion. Stick with the SSX series, they're rated high for a reason.
Summary: I've read reviews and heard it was just over half way good. I had some gift cards with nothing to spend them on, so I bought this less then an hour ago. In the car, I looked at the back of the case, and felt like I had wasted my money. The screenshots were terrible! So when I got home, I put it in and turned on my PS2. The first thing I noticed was the graphics. I could buy a used system from the 80's and have better graphics.
Summary: Bought this game last night expecting something on par with gameplay from PS3 version but with worse graphics. Nothing close. The gameplay is terrible. After having played the PS3 version, I am very disappointed to have purchased this game. Specifics: "missions" are very rudimentary and lack variety. Kinda like Mario Brothers where there is only one way to go through a level. The scoring system and trick combos aren't as good as SSX.
