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 extreme sports games had already been released. But with the rising popularity of extreme sports in North America, snowboarding games have become almost ...
Excerpt: "...their snowboarding game...Then we got Amped: Freestyle Snowboarding, how can people not be excited for a fresh new snowboarding game other than the great SSX, i was definately excited..for one its actually for the X-box! So dont get me wrong i love SSX, but i wanted a game with a bit more realisim..not so driven by fantasy..i wanted to try next to the real thing, and this is probably the closest i'd probably ever get. The game take setting to ...
Summary: I was very very pleased with the detail and graphics this game has to offer. The career mode is very enjoyable having to do different tasks to gain sponsership and media attention. The longevity of the game is created by the free roam of a hillside giving you endless ways to complete the levels. For the price of what this game is available at I would recommend this greatly to people who are unsure about this game.
It's far more real than any other snowboarding game!

Summary: I am a competitive snowboarder and this game is the closest thing you'll get to riding a snowboard while sitting in front of the TV, it's almost perfect! The graphics are excellent, the detail of real 01/02 season equipment and riders is well researched (the developers must be boarders!). The games contols are slighly difficult but thats a positive thing its more realistic and when you pull off something like a "Corked 900 Palm air" its very satisfying.
Summary: I bought Amped with my Xbox and it sat at the back of the shelf until I'd finished Halo and Jet Set Radio because, the first couple of times I put the game on, it was just so darned difficult to do anything. However, work your way past the tough start, and learn the controls, and you'll find a game that is both rewarding and fun to play. Amped isn't the standard race down a hill pulling the occasional stunt kind of snowboarding game we're used to.
Summary: Fan de snowboard ? Et ben avec Amped vous serez servis. Amped est différent de tous les autres jeux de snowboard car dans Amped vous ne faites pas de course, vous faite des run ou vous devez faire des figures pour épaté le sponsors ou les média, vous avez aussi des score à battre et quand vous réussissez vous gagnez des places dans le classement. votre but être 1er !! Plus vous évoluez dans le classement plus la difficulté va augmenter.
Pros: le système de classement, les pistes, la bande son ! ! !
Summary: Pour sa sortie, la Xbox est d'ores et déjà envahie par les jeux de snowboard avec la disponibilité de Dark Summit et Amped. Plus qu'un simple jeu d'arcade, Amped est une véritable simulation de snowboard qui fera le bonheur des puristes. Contrairement à ses rivaux (Dark Summit et SSX), Amped est une pure simulation de snowboard; ici, pas de sauts utopistes et pas de délires à la SSX. Les éléments du parcours ne sont pas tous prétextes à figures et autre tricks.
Pros: hors piste, libertée de faire ce qu'on veut, humour, graphisme . . .
