Summary: This is by far the best snowboarding game on the market. It is easy to play and the concept isn't hard to grasp at all. I tried it at my friends house and it took me 2 runs to understand how to do backflips and corkscrews. It is an awesome game because it is so different from the other snowboarding games where it is possible to pull off quadruple backflips but in amped it is so close to real that even the landing is sensitive.
Summary: I would just like to thank Microsoft for creating such an incredible game. I've waited so long for a true core snowboarding game like this to come along, the wait was definitely worth it. The quality, graphics, and realism of this snowboarding sim is off the hook. I've tried snowboarding sims on other platforms and they don't even come close to the quality and realism that Amped offers. The graphics are simply beautiful.
Summary: Hi I don't ski, don't snowboard, and I've never played games of this genre before. I recently got interested in SSX3 from seeing a review about it online; so I tried out a friend's demo disk to see if it was something I'd like. It was actually quite fun. So then I decided to look around to see what other snowboarding games are out there besides SSX. I went thru all the reviews on the web comparing SSX, Amped, Dark Summit, Transworld, etc... and eventually....
Summary: This game is awesome. It may take a few minutes to learn the controls but after that it is all good. You can board to your own soundtrack. Or it comes with it's own soundtrack with 150 songs. It is awesome multiplayer. You start your own career and then impress the media to get sponsers and then impress the sponsers to get stuff like clothes and gear. It is to cool, You know it's good if they made it a "platinum hits" game.
Summary: Much better than the other game which got better reviews on Xbox mag, mostly because it seems more real (well, ok so I don't get 50' of air when I snowboard) and fluid. If you want a fun game to play with then get this one.
