  • Summary: Stoked, which has the highest Metacritic score of any advanced-generation snowboarding game, is now faster, bigger, easier to control, and even more gorgeous in Stoked: Big Air Edition. New features include racing, marked trails that make it easy to find great runs, lots of park objects to use for tricks, two new mountains, better visuals, and faster and smoother riding.

    For about half the cost of a lift ticket at a major ski resort, Stoked: Big Air Edition's mountains and riding are an authentic representation of what snowboarding is: a canvas for creativity, where finding a perfect line is its own reward.

    Where Stoked was an impressive if flawed debut, Big Air Edition is a superior semi-sequel that should cement the series as a successful snowboarding franchise. If you missed it the first time around, be sure to grab a lift ticket for Stoked's second run.

    Stoked is a true and pure Snowboard simulation. The ones looking for fast rides and spectacular tricks should think if they can face such a hard approach to the genre.
  4. Stoked: Big Air Edition is not for everybody. It doesn't fill in the void left by the fabulous, over-the-top style of the SSX series. For players looking for the realistic equivalent of Skate to the snowboarding sport, Stoked is where it at its strongest.

    It's a completely different experience from SSX and other arcade snowboarding game: compelling to the point of frustration, it will give some satisfaction only if you'll dedicate a lot of time and effort to the learning curve. It's a shame that the many events feel somehow disconnected, making the progression even more difficult to follow.

    Stoked: Big Air Edition is a good game dedicated to the most hardcore snowboard fans. If you're looking for a snowboard simulation, this could be your best choice. The budget price and the good gameplay are enough to balance the lack of a proper career mode.
  7. Better by degrees. Tiny, incremental degrees, barely worth noting. Give it a wide berth. [May 2011, p.99]

    One of my all time favorite snowboarding games and it is the most realistic one i have ever played. After being an ssx fan for a long time i was not sure if snowboarding games really had a future but this game was a very pleasant surprise. IF YOU LIKE SKATE then definitely get this game, its the Skate of Snowboarding games with good graphics and game play. Expand

    This is a snowboarding games that takes realism to the next level. Add in the realistic aspects of Amped and Amped 2 for the Xbox, then sprinkle on complex but intuitive controls from the Skate series, which comes together to form a snowboarding experience for fans of the sport. Shaun White's game disappointed. The latest SSX didn't live up to the hype. However, Stoked is everything a boarder could want and more. This is one heck of a game. Stoked: Big Air Edition is a more refined and polished version of Stoked, which means smoother controls, smoother jibbing, better graphics, 2 new mountains added to the one's that were already there, and more.

    best snowboarding game so far but suffers from a serious lack of marketing. graphics/controls/gameplay is very solid, wondering why it sells for $39.90... Expand

    The first true spiritual successor to the Amped series, not perfect but quite close. And the very first game delivering an authentic 'mountain' feeling. Plus at a bargain price-point. - Great! Expand

    This is the kind of game I've wanted for a long time, and it sat right under my nose for years. My mistake; I shouldn't trust mainstream coverage of games like this that appeal to a smallish niche of crazy people who'd rather put a lot of effort into perfecting simple tricks than doing absurd tricks and wearing wingsuits or whatever. And that group includes me, so I appreciate this game a lot and am highly impressed by what I was fearing could never live up to its promises. The soundtrack and presentation are both great, too. Really, this game surprised me at every turn and I suspect I'll be playing for a long time to come. Expand

    This game is terrible. I don't know what these reviewers are smoking, but you're better off just playing SSX 3 or SSX On Tour on the last-gen consoles. The controls seem like they are ported from a Wii game. You can barely hit grinds and when you do it looks completely retarded. The control scheme is supposed to emulate Skate's but it fails miserably. You flick the stick up and your rider flies 10 feet into the air and looks totally stiff and unrealistic. I'm disappointed that I spent money on this crap based on these reviews. Save your money and either buy an old copy of SSX 3 or On Tour or just wait until a better snowboarding game comes along. Seriously, don't buy this crap. Expand
