Well,, if you liked the first two offerings from 2XL you might wanna give this a shot. Or if you're an X-Games junkie, why not. Though I'm not gonna ask for a refund, this is basically the first two games, with less tracks and an ESPN-branding. Nothing to write home about.

It seems a bit more polished than the first two games, though. And you'd think a game dealing with snow would have much more of it. This is the last time I support these guys. The SAME DAMN GAME three times. Oh, well. You TOFTT and you learn.

UPDATE!!!

After playing a bit more, I have to say that this is a shameful product. Although it looks as good as the others, there's NOTHING to it. And it's just NOT fun. And now I discover that even if I want a refund Apple doesn't give them anymore.

I mean, even on HARD this app is a cakewalk. These devs are some lazy SOBs. I should've know, though, as you never see them here. And there was absolutely nothing seen of turd beforehand. Pitiful.

2/10 Worst buy EVER!

Post Script

Just plain boring... And I wouldn't be so mad if, at least, there was good use of snow... Maybe one level I'm speeding down the slopes away from an avalanche. SOMETHING! These devs need to call it a day. I'm so pissed off...

LOL! /rant...

I found 2xl to make some of the best damn looking games on the App Store. I don't care what this guy thinks it looks spectacular and I'm getting it

If you want a refund, go to the iTunes support page and say that you purchased the product accidentally, and they'll give you a refund. You'll get to keep the game, but no redownloading/updates. Didn't do it myself, but I did get a refund for a very glitchy app.

Like yourself, I'm a graphics whore... But if you've played the first two 2XL games this is nothing new... And there's a snow level in the ATV games. Play that over and over and you've played this new game. Without the sno TVs of course

Ok I get you now. I personally liked the first two 2xl games (Im a fan of anything racing) so I believe I will still enjoy this. From what you said this is just ATV Offroad with the length of Supercross but on snowmobiles. I felt like Snow Moto Racing could have been better so I'm happy to pick up this title, especially since I enjoy 2xl's graphics and their racing game style.

Shame. The graphics are stellar. But is the game being easy a dealbreaker? Surely it's still fun? Or is it like Shaun White - good but capable of being so much more? Because I was really let down by that game.
