    This game is now the standard by which all other games have to live up to this year. It’s a great game with some serious chilly thrills...CB2K1 snatches the crown from the hands of "SSX" thanks to speed and style.
  2. 80
    "SSX" is the better game, but Cool Boarders 2001 has a more lifelike—but still over-the-top—style plus more game modes that should appeal to real and wannabe snowboarders.
  3. 78
    I still prefer "SSX" to this by a long shot, but Cool Boarders 2001 holds it own...I would not be embarrassed to own this game, because the principles of the design are solid, and the end result is that the game is fun through and through.
  4. While CB 2001 isn't exactly up to the standards of some other titles on the market, for anyone interested in extreme sports titles, it's well worth a try.
  5. Much like Nell Carter's thighs, the courses are large and in charge.
  6. What gives Cool Boarders 2001 its biggest style points, however, is something it shares with Tony Hawk: performance goals...This turns an average snowboarding game into a fun, engaging experience.
  7. There are too many creative and technical glitches, but it can still be enjoyable and fun.

    Cool Boarders does not do well when compared with SSX. The boarding just doesn't feel right, and the graphics are below average.
