Good memories... easy to learn, hard to master.
and found this little gem again.
This game defined all snowboarding games that came after it, so it deserves a little credit.
Although the characters show little personality, they each have their own statistics that makes them different to control. The game is a little on the short side, but it does make for a great weekend - unlocking all the boards. As it's sequel, two-player saves the game from being a rental (more so, even) - and considering the time the game originally appeared, the graphics are great.
Like it's sequel, it's limited in regards to stunts - but more realistic in that regard than, for example, 1080 avalanche or any of the SSX games.
All in all, this is the best snowboard game to ever appear on N64 - and still well deserving of a wii sequel.
If this comes out on Virtual Console, I would advise against it, though - there are better snowboard games on Gamecube or Wii that can be bought for the same price as the average N64 VC title. - SSX on Tour or Blur are great alternatives to get your snowdrift going.
