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.

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.

Basicly the problem is you have to be totally pin point accurate with your play, and sometimes I can mess up and I just dont know why, this leaves me feeling frustrated and cheated.
Excerpt: No soy muy dado a los juegos deportivos, soy mas de juegos estilo sonic o mario ,pelea,carreras...pero en general de deporte no, y mucho menos de juegos de snowboaard, ya que me parecen "todo igual" Cuando me hice con mi gran Xbox, me venia con este juego (y el gran proyect gotham city) y al no tener nada mas que dos juegos al principio, pues heche mis partidas.
Cons: A la larga, me sigue pareciendo todo igual en estos juegos
