Developed by the same team that brought us Wave Race 64 comes 1080 Snowboarding.
While the presentation is nice, the control is the game's biggest strength. It's highly technical and takes some time to get the hang of, but it's worth it. This title addresses some issues of snowboarding (the sport) that few games have. The Z button, for example, crouches your character. This helps increase your speed but is also used when landing. If you land and crouch the instant you hit, you stand a better chance of surviving. Also important is your center of gravity, as you need to land at an upright angle out of every jump to get the points or keep up speed.
On hand are several modes of play, from the typical Match Race to Trick mode (go for the most points), Time Attack, Training (use it often), Contest, and Two Player Versus mode. All of these will keep you glued to your board for months on end as you unlock secrets and compete with a friend. When all is said and done, if you're a racing or boarding fan you must own this game. It's got the looks, the gameplay, the great tunes, and it is one of the most enjoyable gaming experiences on the system since Wave Race 64.
