The gameplay is great and realistic. The control scheme is similar to Skate, so you have control of the character in a very snappy and precise way. One of the many refinements made since the release of the original Stoked is that the gameplay feels a lot smoother and natural. Jibbing is improved, board physics are better, etc.
The graphics are quite excellent. The mountains are massive. There was already a lot to see and do in the original Stoked, but Big Air Edition adds even more things to do on every mountain and adds two brand new and huge mountains into the equation. The snow looks real, the lighting is beautiful, and just the overall presentation is impeccable.
Stoked: Big Air Edition is a snowboarders snowboarding game.
While the rider customisation is indeed lacking it is apparent that more time was invested into the actual gameplay than visual mods for your rider (though sponsors include Lib Tech, Tech Nine, Burton and other huge names). With actual varying weather patterns you will see the snow stack up or melt away, with various weather conditions you will see new lines and hits emerge on all the mountains. The total accessible area is astounding-- endless square kilometers await your shredtastic setup.
The game sets you as a rider on the ever-so-classic search for sponsorship to unlock new gear and terrain. This is accomplished through completion of media challenges (photo, video), on-hill challenges (trick callouts on specific hits, lines, one-up score records, etc) and comps. This revised updated version (Big Air Edition vs. OG Stoked) offers revised versions of the original mountains and two additional new maps.
The controls are reminiscent of EA's Skate series, but are unfortunately less refined (though much better in this version than the original)-- resulting in slightly unnatural shifties and slightly cumbersome grab controls. The gameplay easily finds redemption in the use of the triggers to carve or prewind your spins. Also, your riding style (prewinding with big spins, huge tricks or alternatively slow, floaty airs) will gain you bonuses (new grabs, point bonuses) as you further develop your chosen steez.
Stoked: Big Air edition shines over the arcade-esque, unrealistic gameplay of past snowboarding titles with the most honest portrayal of the actual act of snowboarding that any game has yet put forth. While a few deficiencies make it apparent that this would have been more polished if from a larger studio, Bongfish has succesfully destroyed any hopes that the Amped or Shaun White series may have retained after initial release.
(If you prefer Tony Hawk to Skate, you'll prefer Shaun White over Stoked.... what a bummer that must be.)
