  1. The controls are far too imprecise, the collision detection is spotty, and the missions can get a little too monotonous.
  2. There is a brain-dead appeal to the desperate way Konami has reinvented its struggling “ESPN Winter X-Games Snowboarding” franchise into a “Road Rash” clone.
  3. The game looks three years old but plays and sounds good enough to hang with, barely. [Feb 2003, p.90]
  4. Not only is Evolution Snowboarding a lame snowboarding game but it's a lame fighter as well, so you know what that makes the whole game don't you?
  5. This game is underthought, quarterbaked, and hopeless. It's one of the worst games on the PS2. [Feb 2003, p.66]
  6. Save for a few boss designs, the graphics are dull, while the arcade-styled controls are so simple as to almost reward a lack of skill. [Feb 2003, p.33]
  7. 20
    It takes a bad idea and runs headlong with it on a roller-coaster ride of wretched execution, until the whole mess finally collapses in a heap that's barely recognizable as a contemporary videogame.
