    I agree with Magnus G. Amped 1 & 2 were so much better! Why did they have to go and mess it all up by ruining the presentation and dumbing down the gameplay to appease the casual mainstream SSX crowd? By trying to please everybody with its attempt at a balance between arcade and realism it just ends up pleasing nobody by being too easy and unrealistic!

Now where am I supposed to get my simulation fix of snowboarding? Ahhh I guess I'll have to go back to playing Amped 2. I'm hoping now that Indie Built have gone bust that Ubisoft are going to come through with Shaun White Snowboarding. Expand

    I was really really disappointed by this game because I really love the first two amped games. They just completely ruined the laid back snowboardfeeling that the other games had. In Amped 2 , if you wanted to do a certain jib trick, you would just pop of the kicker press the rail button.. tweak the trick to satisfaction and easily just tweak a 180 off. With Amped 3, this simply I was really really disappointed by this game because I really love the first two amped games.

In Amped 2 , if you wanted to do a certain jib trick, you would just pop of the kicker press the rail button.. tweak the trick to satisfaction and easily just tweak a 180 off. With Amped 3, this simply isn't possible. Instead when you try to do a smooth move, you'll end up making a overrotaded spin, land sketchy on the rail, see the game suck the board onto the rail and then finally press x,x,y to do a super nosepress tweak. I just think the depth in the control is completely gone. As far as the story and all those wacky, "extreme-ish" things. They feel just wrong. You can't make a game which story is purely based on some estethic collage. If you would separate the game from it's predecessors, it would be quite a okay game. But if you compare it with the first two games, it's purely something wrapped in a colorful box. The music and sounds are solid as always but that dont make up for the double backflip method's that are done in the bunny suit. I just think that they should re-release amped 2 on xbox 360, with all the levels of amped 1, 2 .. and make a real snowboarding game, for the snowboarders. Peace ut! Expand

    Underneath the show there's still a snowboarding game that's fun to hang out with, but only in doses.

    For me, the biggest shortcoming of Amped 3 was the lack of any decent multiplayer gameplay. There's nothing happening with Xbox Live -- save for some cool, but basic score tracking -- and the offline multiplayer is limited to the rather disappointing co-op two-player sledding events.
  3. The wholly original cut-and-paste visual style of Amped 3--combined with the manic, increasingly crazy energy of the story mode--make it easier to forgive the oft-repetitive and occasionally plain gameplay.
