I find the control really simple to use. Tricks are easy to do, the landing is the hard part trying to line up parallel so you don't crash. I have played through one course and there is plenty of ramps and rails to do tricks and combine them for higher scores. There are tons of things for unlocking in Openfeint. 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.

Game Impressions

This is actually quite good. The tracks are nice and long and there are
plenty of achievements/ghost challenges available. I think the graphics
are perfectly appropriate for a snowboarding game, but they're obviously
not for everyone. I like the control system...it's quite unique.

Is there any career mode or such?
I have been waiting for a snowboarding game that actually has enough content to bring me back after it's first day
