are several modes of play including single runs, stunts and the impressive
career mode which offers plenty of depth. Amped is a stunts title and the object
is to get points by jumping, grinding, grabbing and spinning through the
courses. The twist here is that players can earn extra points and rewards by
performing stunts in front of media and gaining sponsorships in the process.
Excerpt: The one interesting thing about the Xbox launch was the amount of snowboarding titles available. Until the New Year, they were equal to the number of football titles (not so anymore with the recent release of NFL 2K2 from Sega). This begs the question: Is snowboarding really that appealing? Obviously it is growing exponentially in popularity and creeping out of its niche roots like skateboarding has done with Tony Hawk.
Conclusion: Wow! Auch wenn Amped einiges schwerer zu steuern ist, als ein SSX von EA Sports macht es unheimlich viel Spaß. Die technische Seite hat zum Launch der Xbox wirklich nichts vermissen lassen. Die Entwickler versuchten die Realität miteinzubinden, was ihnen größtenteils auch gelungen ist.
