This is a very good game. The simple, intuitive controls let players perform a huge variety of spins, twists, flips, grabs, and well as basic carving maneuvers. The game does a great job conveying the exhilarating sensation of speed and height, and the exotic and varied stages keep things interesting. There are multiple modes to mix things up. Of note is the cooperative mode which allows two players to play together and add their total score together, so more advanced players can help novices win competitions by compensating. On the minus side, there are many snowboarding and skating games on the market now (including last years version of this title), and this game doesn't distinguish itself quite enough from those. Still, a worthwhile, fun experience.

Online interaction: Player scores can be posted to a leaderboard accessible by others. There is no actual head-to-head interaction available.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
