Amped 2, part of the new XSN Sports brand, is the ultimate freestyle snowboarding experience, offering gamers an expanded library of tricks with the addition of Snowskate (skateboarding on snow), butter (nose and tail ground tricks) and a smooth new tricking "style". Gamers can explore vast areas of wide-open, spectacularly rendered mountains, packed with terrain parks designed with world-famous snow park architect Chris Gunnarson. They can play head-to-head with friends to compare skills or challenge up to seven others in multiplayer modes. When ready to take it to the next level, they can connect to Xbox Live and join some of the world's best virtual riders. Utilizing revolutionary new Web-based technology, riders can even hook up with friends and organize their own events on Xbox Live from a centralized Web site, XSNsports.com. Gamers can feel what it's like to live the life of a real pro snowboarder by traveling the globe and pulling sick tricks to impress sponsors, photographers, and pros like Jeremy Jones. And they can do all of this to the sounds of more than 300 killer alt-indie tracks on an HDTV at 720p with Dolby 5.1 surround sound.

This should be a pretty cool game. Now if Tony Hawk would only go onto Xbox Live..

I am pretty sure I'll pick this one up, after renting.
