  1. The end product may not be as flashy or brilliant as other titles, but it is fun. In the end, that's what matters.
  2. Even with the option of taking numerous paths on each mission, once the truth is out there, you probably won’t want to bother again.

    Thanks to a mission-based, narrative design, fine control, and slopes that have a darker atmosphere, Dark Summit really manages to set itself apart.
  4. Fanatics and realists should head for "Amped." Folks looking for a fun, solid game that just happens to take place on the snow will probably like Dark Summit.
  5. While nothing is overly spectacular, the game is very solid, never seems to 'drag its feet', and the storyline always pushes forward.
  6. Another good snowboarding game that quickly becomes addictive -- if you give it the chance.

    As for Naya, well, I’m not wild about those bangs, but she does have nice moguls. [Feb 2002, p.59]

    If a game’s success is measured by 4 am mornings with Red Bull leaking from your mouth, then Dark Summit is a keeper.

    A unique take on the snowboarding genre...The overall package just lacks a certain depth that keeps this game from really staying with you, and from challenging you, especially as you get farther in the game.
  10. With a more detailed multiplayer mode and maybe a bit more in the way of choices that may effect the game’s outcome, Dark Summit could be a leader in a new series of sports/adventure titles to come.
  11. While it does add some new concepts to the genre, it still may leave you feeling like it wasn't quite geared up for the power of the Xbox.
  12. Multiplayer is definitely a weakness with Dark Summit, and hurts the replayability quite a bit.
