  1. The game is highly engrossing and playable, and more than makes up for the technical shortcomings.
  2. 83
    If you want something casual and wild, go for a different game, but if you want a simulation, a challenging one at that, Konami's got you covered.
  3. Another facet of the game is a pseudo-RPG element, which adds some replay value to the game, but becomes so ridiculously tedious after a short while that you won't go back to it.
  4. The main problem with the game remains squarely in one place, the controls.
  5. Game Informer

    You have to make sure to input your spins early. This means that you can't make those minor corrections that can be so crucial to landing tricks. [Apr 2002, p.83]
  6. Even the most ardent snowboarder will find it difficult to like the snail's pace at which the snowboarder mode unfolds, and the confounding controls make it almost impossible to enjoy the rest of the game.
  7. Xbox Nation Magazine

    It's a curse-at-the-controller-how-can-this-be-so-effin'-hard? Game. [Spring 2002, p.92]
