This was the third game I got for the Wii, and I must say that the game is just a blast. You snowboard or ski down the mountain and can unlock higher parts of the mountain as you progress on your ride to fame. You also can collect uber-collectibles which help with unlocking ubertricks and the Yeti outfit. Plus, each course is amazingly beutiful in environmet. A big plus is, there is nothing offensive. Everyone says that Mario is the most kid friendly game on the Wii. It is neither in any case as it is more violent than this game (although this game is a little more sexually explicit but it isn't something like Wave Race, just a little skin from some woment that is hard to make out and a couple of flirtatious comments), plus Ratatouille is easier. In all, I would advise this game. Although not the best game for the Wii, and definitely a challenge, this game will provide plenty of hours of fun as you go for unlocking characters, challenges, tricks, and gear while trying to reach the third height on the mountain (which is gorgeous when you reach it).
