Perfect your misty flips and switch backside 180s in Freestyle, Halfpipe and Boarder Rally events - or float through deep, untouched powder in the backcountry.

  1. It’s good, even fantastic at times, walking the line between reality and fantasy in a pleasant mix that’s really hard to put down once you start playing.
  2. Solid in every aspect, with a few outstanding features (audio, some of the level designs).
  3. Frame rate gets choppy and detracts from the experience. [Jan 2003, p.66]
  4. 76
    A solid snowboarding experience, but it lacks the flash and pomp of a truly great game.
  5. Plagued with various imperfections, TransWorld Snowboarding does not rise above its problems to be an extreme sports title worthy of a snowboarding aficionado.
  6. 67
    The game just has an overall unfinished feel. Add that to the ease of the game, limited tracks, and limited multi-player and the value decreases further.
  7. 60
    Given that there is no ability to create your own rider or play online, the feature set is substandard to other extreme sports titles on the market.

    Wicked game better than amped, great music and the controls are easy to use. Should kind of make the game closer to X games snowboarding in that u have to go in comps, pay for hospital bills, and get plane rides to places. Expand

    Nice mix between SSX nd Amped, it has the ease of control like SSX, and a bit more of the realistic feel of Amped. A bit rough around the edges though, like sounds (not the music) and some textures. Expand
