With only 4 players and 4 courses it may be a bit spendy, but here's hoping for an update!
I agree. Let me just add: the courses are very long -- longer than anything on Crazy Snowboard. The graphics are cartoony (which, frankly, I don't mind), but the game has nice, realistic feeling of being in the snow. I like that there's a bit of vibration when you land a jump (and yes, it can be turned off). The virtual snowboard system is actually pretty nifty -- you are not depending on a set of predefined tricks. And the game doesn't coddle you -- in Crazy Snowboard you are able to land a trick if you stop it at the right time. Here you had to make sure you're landing straight on the snow.
All in all, in feels more like a console title (well, a Wii title, anyway) than other snowboarding games on the platform.
