  1. All of the high-speed grinding, nosebleed big-air tricks, and spectacular board-twisting, body-contorting tricks of THPS are just as eye-catching and thumb-numbing as they were before, but now they’re enhanced by gorgeous snow-parks and powder-packed resorts.
  2. If you enjoy challenging games or simply enjoy getting your ass handed to you, Shaun Palmer is a dream come true. [Dec 2001, p.93]
  3. One of the most intuitive and entertaining of the realistic snowboarding titles available today.
  4. Once you slide past something you need, you can’t back up – that sucks. [Jan 2002, p.220]
  5. It's too scattered and feels poorly designed. [Jan 2002, p.134]
  6. Shaun Palmer may play like Tony Hawk, vaguely, but in the end you'll realize that it's nothing more than a rushed, sub-par entry into a genre that is already being dominated by EA Big's SSX series.

    I hate Shaun Palmer’s Pro Snowboarder, I curse the day it was conceived and I wish a horrible holiday season upon all of those who were involved in it’s production.

    One of the best snowboarding games ever made. Pity the sequel was canned (was being produced by Treyarch!!) :-(
