I'm curious about how good this is, too. I've held off on getting a snowboarding game, and want a great one - is this it?

This game is pretty fun but on ipad 2 framerate seems like a constant 20 fps or something. It's consistent but choppy. Could've had potential to be a great snowboard game but you have to buy moves. Iap is not for boards only. So if you don't touch iap at all, you're missing a bunch of moves to do.

Thanks. I'm staying away from this money pit.

Yeah, between this and the Homerun Battle games, this developer has gone IAP crazy. I think I'll pass too.

Between this and home run I would say go for home run. Iap stuff there are mainly for better gear so you can still enjoy the game itself. At least they don't charge you to hit a foul or something.

Another swing-and-miss for Com2US. Shame that they're going downhill with their IAP business model; the original HRB3D is one of my all-time favorite titles on the iOS and this seemed to be quite promising as well.

Thought i'd get a code for a free game being one of the first to e-mail in...didnt happen, so got this game now its cheap.
Im not impressed, its pretty and the controls are different but good, but the game is let down by short and very similar runs, and the fact that to buy anything you need IAP. you can save up money by playing the game, but as most things cost $500 upwards and you get $50 for a win...its just not possible to unlock everything without IAP. barrel roll trick is $2300!!!

Another game where the dev prioritises IAP and ruins the game.
