I played this when it first came out... I was working in retail sales at the time, so had access to a demo console and lots of cool games. Problem was, I didn't like games, but this was all that was on the machine at the time. So, I grabbed the handset and had a blast, competing against a co-worker who was a gamesmaster already. Of course, he whupped my sorry butt and wiped the floor with me. Oh, the shame. :)
After a few serious thrashings at the hands of the guru, I decided to give it a serious go, and was hooked within the day. Seriously, snowboarding hold ZERO appeal for me in the real world, but this game was cool.
Lots of tricks to pull off, heaps of 'air' to 'grab', and a surprisingly high level of interaction between the riders. The NPC AI is very advanced, giving a level or realism hardly seen in that day.
Now that this game is Platinum Edition, the price makes it very appealing, so I grabbed a copy and went home for a refrsh of the thrills. Even after a year without it, and access to other snowboarding games of a newer vintage, this game still holds great appeal for me.
Overall, I would class this as a classic must-have for any sports-freaks who own a PS2.
