Wow...

Olivier Masse, MobyGames
26 February 2004
  • Conclusion: This release title really showed, and still shows, what the Xbox is able to do. Hats go off to the programmers and level designers who have been able to make such detailed levels. Is this the result of clever tricks or am I just too used to older 3D games?
  • Pros: Well, simply put, the realism and graphics are great. Heck, if I can't see thousands of trees for miles ahead, then I must be turning blind or something -- the view is almost infinite. The frame rate being very high, you really feel like you're there, and nothing is left to your imagination. That...
  • Cons: Sound effects are limited. Especially the cameramen's voices -- it looks as if they only taped up one guy saying 50 or so lines, so it gets very repetitive over time and annoying. And unlike the music, you can't turn their voices off when you've had enough.

A not too bad snowboarding game.

Anthony Colford, MobyGames
3 November 2003
  • Conclusion: This game is realistic but many bugs and poor multi-player make it a good rent but I only own it because it came with my Xbox. Otherwise I would have never bought it. However hard core snowboarders will love this game.
  • Pros: The graphics in this game are awesome. The snow is very realistic. When you turn you throw snow everywhere! You can see a lot of details in most everything and the mountains are very different from one another. Some consisting of natural rocks and rails such as fallen trees and mounds of snow. Ot...
  • Cons: The multi-player is pathetic. Your stuck with taking turns on one player game modes just so the developer can say this game has multi-player. Also there are many bugs. I can't count the amount of times that I got my head stuck in a log or hit a rail and flipped around a couple times very very qui...

Quite possibly the most fun AND realistic snowboarding game ever.

JPaterson, MobyGames
28 November 2001
  • Conclusion: As a regular snowboarder, this game makes all other snowboarding games pale in comparison. It's got an engrossing career mode, and a fun Instant Run mode. It's a great game all-around.
  • Pros: Let me start off by saying that Amped is the most fun, exciting, and realistic snowboarding game I have ever played. When compared to SSX and SSX Tricky, it's more fun. When compared to ESPN Snowboarding, it's more realistic. It's a masterpiece.
  • Cons: If I had to pick something, I'd have to say the difficulty. The high score and media challenges are fairly easy once you know how to properly link tricks.

A special kind of bad

Jim Collins, Amazon
1 April 2015
  • Summary: Amped is a special kind of bad. it's a perfect storm of terrible controls and level design that often feels unfair. there's hard games, which are fine, but rarely are the cards stacked so heavily against the player.

  • Excerpt: I have never been snowboarding but know friends who have and also love watching it on TV when it's on. It does look great fun and this game is also pretty good and orginal. I think you will love it whether you are into this sport or not. The graphics are superb if I'm honest.

Good game for a while, worth the price at least

  • Excerpt: Amped is a Snowboarding game, now in its third incarnation. Now this is a good thing to know as poor games rarely get a sequel - this has had two later versions. But having been made curious, I was unwilling to pay the £40 for the newest version without checking that I liked the general gist of the...

Amped: Freestyle Snowboarding (Xbox)

23 February 2006
  • Excerpt: While Amped: Freestyle Snowboarding is visually impressive and loaded with options, its technical merits are drastically undermined by its shoddy gameplay. In the days of yore, snowboarding games were a niche genre that was traditionally only filled after the skateboarding, BMX, motocross, and other...

  • Excerpt: The snowboarding genre is kind of an old one now.. original extreme sport games like Coolboarders, 1080 really brough extreme sports to the table, bringing oportunaties for games like Tony Hawk and Dave Mirra.
