1UP: Stoked First-Look Preview

1UP recently checked out Stoked, a new Xbox 360 exclusive that's trying to do for snowboarding what Skate did for skateboarding. Stoked definitely puts its focus on realism and stylish riding instead of fakie 1080 stalefishing over the Golden Gate Bridge.

While many snowboarding games focus on the park aspect of riding, Stoked revolves around backcountry boarding. Players choose from one of five mountains, take a helicopter ride up to the summit, and then select one of eight predetermined drop points. After a leap from the chopper, it's up to the player to make the most of their run and complete as many (or as few) objectives as possible.
