TransWorld Snowboarding Shipped Sunday, October 27th, 2002

HUH???

I saw this game at my local Target on Friday night.

So anyways...

Anyone have the game? How do you like it? I'll be renting it when I can (hopefully soon). Would like your input on the game to hold me over until I get to play it. Thanks :D

Ive had the game for about a week now. Its pretty good. If you liked Amped, youll love this.
Once you completely beat one of the characters, the game does become a little repetative.. but its still a fun experience :)

Amped was pretty decent game. Are the grahpics greatly approved from the other snowboarding games on the xbox?

And I take it since you kinda compared it to Amped that Transworld snowboarding isn't the arcady type of boarding game?

It is somewhat arcady and it has wonderous graphics.

If you consider pulling quad backflips, and landing 100+ meter jumps arcadey, then yes, Transworld is pretty arcadey.

But Amped wasnt all that realistic either.
As far as im concerned, a realistic extreme sports game, is a bore.
Take THPS for example; its far from realistic, but its damn fun :)

Well yeah that is arcadey...

But there hasn't been a sim of extreme sports really...

I would like to see what they could true extreme sports sim.. I think that would be sweet.

From what I've heard on this game, looks like it's a rental for me. I get bored of having to do a quaddruple backflips for 35,000 points.. bah That's how THEY ALL are.. I rented (friend is actually playing it right now) Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 2. It's a fun game but it's just a rental for me.

Anyways thanks for your input guys. Anyone else want to throw in there input it's more then welcomed.

It gives you bonus multipliers when your board is on fire. Just like if you do a perfect grab or a perfect landing. Then there is the revert thingy which extends your combo. Do all 4 and you have a super highscore.
