Summary: "I would have loved to have been able to go up against a friend in a race, or at least compete against them at the same time instead of having to play a turn based system." "There are 13 different multiplayer contests to take part in, in each of them, both riders get three turns of 30 seconds each to try and beat their best efforts.
Pros: Long lasting gameplay, Great graphics, Some fantastic music, Smooth frame rate
Conclusion: Given the game is now available as a Classics title, and sells for a RRP of $49.95, I believe it is a must for ALL Xbox owners regardless of whether you like snowboarding or not. I've never been snowboarding, and I think it's better than the majority of the Xbox games on the market today. Amped will offer you plenty of replay ability, and it should last you until that new title you've been craving for hits the shelfs.
Pros: gorgeous graphics, big jumps and steep hills!, one of the best soundtracks ever
Cons: controls can get a bit awkward, gets VERY hard, what about us skiers?
Conclusion: All in all, this is easily the best snowboarding game on the market. Some may be put off by all the 'realism', but the innovative way in which you must garner media coverage and progress in the world rankings is original and it makes for a nice change. The controls are instinctive, the gameplay addictive and the graphics stunning - snowboarding has finally evolved.
