  1. There's the Mario Kart-esque attacks. An immediately obviously very stupid idea. And they're so poorly integrated that they destroy everything in their path.

    Sure, it's a bit disappointing to have another traditional game on such a non-traditional system, but it's still a fun experience. In trying so hard to make Snowboard Kids a true DS game, though, it feels like Atlus went too far in the other direction.
  3. 40
    Even more irritating are the recoveries that actually need to be manipulated. One requires you to shout into the microphone to wake your character up, and another to blow into the microphone to clear the screen of fog.

    Mediocre, dissapointing: Not winning any new fans, and alienating the original fans

    A fun game. At first I found it a boring but I forced myself to play it, and after a while I found it really fun. Lots of unlockables but A fun game. At first I found it a boring but I forced myself to play it, and after a while I found it really fun. Lots of unlockables but would have been better with more courses and more tricks. Graphics are pretty cool, controls are perfect, music suits the game. I got used to the voices and the only one I found slightly annoying was Slash's voice but I got used to it. I'd like to see a new 1080 game for the DS. But until then, if you like snowboarding games, and want one on the DS, you can't go wrong with Snowboard Kids. Full Review »
