why it got 4 stars and not 5 is because a couple of the actions (forward footstomp) does not pick up that well and it is a very important part of the game.
also gettting to the game, you have to go through a lot of screens and fairly boring screens.
overall though, once you get to the courses and are playing the actual game, like i said it is just fun, which is what it is all about anyway
info on me:
casual gamer, not hardcore
Anyone who's played any other skate/snowboarding game knows that turning can often be difficult in some situations. I find myself regularly and frustratingly turning 180 UP the hill while trying to collect items, get on a rail, or pop balloons. There's not a lot to do in this game which is common with a lot of Kinect games. At least some of the other games give you a bit of a workout, this one kind of gives you a pain in the back and neck due to the required stance, and it doesn't get your heart rate up.
Youth (~6-12): probably fun
Teens (~13-17): maybe fun for a short time
Adult Gamers(~18-30s): quickly lose interest (my demographic)
Oldies :) (~30s- ): probably fun IF playing with their kids
Sorry I just expect a little more out of even a simple game like this. (Simple is ok as long as it's done right)
It's action backed and kind of a nostalgic sort of edgy (circa 1990's culture), but a lot of fun. I've had no problems with it picking up on our movements and the courses are fun and challenging.
I do wish you could skip various menu options and intros and just start up where you left off, but that's my only nitpick about the game.
Fun, active, and pretty cool!
The preliminaries are indeed lengthy. The sign-in process is a little strange, too. But you can bypass the video segments quickly by raising your right arm.
I have never tired of this game...I never will either.
The tracking works fine. A few times I have seen the often reported problem with uninitiated board stopping. Otherwise, the boards are responsive and the interface, while different, is intuitive. I take issue with the "soft" physics. I have seen a couple of occasions where I initiated a big-air trick too long and landed on my head, but conveniently ended up on the board without losing time or points. I personally would prefer more realism.
Having said that, the characters and environments are definately more fantasy than realistic. Thankfully, the characters are edgy and unique. The "X-TREME" theme is certainly dated (late 1990s), but I guess I give it a pass as a period piece.
The game types are varied, and there seems to be a good deal to unlock. I found the narrator's (DJ) voice to be incredibly irritating, but you have the option of turning it off.
I would be upset with this title if I had bought it at full price, but from a discount seller it is a fun way to pass a little time. I would love to see a more realistic snowboarding game with unforgiving physics and a huge mountain to explore, but you can definately see the Kinect's potential with this little game.
I put the fun to dollar ratio at $25.

it's okay. I like the others better. Don't quite care for the "characters" in it but, it seems to be more for kids.Published on September 11, 2013 by Kamila Robillard
Only a couple character types to choose from and although the courses change, we felt like it was just a lot of the same. So we got bored with it pretty quickly.Published on January 26, 2013 by Jennifer L. Manchester
