This actually isn't a bad snowboarding title.
For those who actually snowboard you might end up liking this more than the mainstream reviews would lead you to believe.
The controls do take a while to master and the movement on the lower mountains could be more realistic but all in its a very decent effort at simulating the sport.
Graphics: 3.5/5 Considering its using Assasins creed they really should be better.
Gameplay: 3.5/5 Tricky to master and you can find your vertical and horizontal axis going away from you too easily sometimes. Good fun tho' and the shoulder button gives you a cracking alternate camera angle when hitting jumps!
Sound: 3/5 Nothing amazing. Annoying whiney voice acting and the usual ‘snow swooshing’.
Replay value: 3.5/5 I think the online has great potential and the gear upgrades are very true to life with Burton/Foursquare and Forum gear all appearing from bindings to Jackets and backpacks.
I'd get this once the price drops a bit!!!
Massive mountains and some great backcountry environments. A good laugh and a decent fix over the summer till next season returns!!
