This game is now the standard by which all other games have to live up to this year. Its a great game with some serious chilly thrills...CB2K1 snatches the crown from the hands of "SSX" thanks to speed and style.
This game takes all the best aspects of "SSX" and combines them with some Tony Hawk style gameplay to create a happy medium. While Cool Boarders 2001 can't hold a candle to "THPS," there is a very solid game here.
I still prefer "SSX" to this by a long shot, but Cool Boarders 2001 holds it own...I would not be embarrassed to own this game, because the principles of the design are solid, and the end result is that the game is fun through and through.
Unfortunately, the game lacks significant depth and as such doesn't grab your attention for extended periods. The difficulty takes a giant leap near the end and may frustrate gamers more than endear them.
