IGN: Stoked Review

Stoked is not as bad as you'll originally think when the disc spins up. In fact, it's actually pretty darn close to being a good snowboarding game. The physics and the general act of hopping onto a board and carving, leaping, and tricking your way down the mountain could be much tighter than they are, as could the general design and progression of the gameplay, but touches like snazzy weather effects, cool challenges online and (eventually) in single-player will please the diehard boarders out there. The annoyances of Stoked won't be for everyone, but diehard snowboarders looking for a lengthy (and cheap) game to sink their teeth into needn't look any further.

Fuk snowboarding. Make a Skiing game.

Sucks how AA and physics brought this game down (for IGN at least), weren't graphics for this game a touted feature?

Speaking of snowboarding, what ever happened to Amped? That game was actually fun!

Jinxstar3551d ago

I miss the EA big games. SSX and such myself... Totally unrealistic but fun as hell =D

Danja3551d ago

yeah wish we would get another SSX game...'

SSX 3 remains my all time fave snowboarding game...

Xi3551d ago

and so was the development on amped 4, wich was going to be multiplatform.

spunnups3551d ago

No snowboarding game will ever top the behemoths that were SSX Tricky on the PS2 and 1080 Snowboarding on the N64

amped 2 is the best snowboarding game to date imo, had a great control scheme, the races were fun and pulling off a good stylish trick was hard but rewarding. I loved that game.

That and snowbard kids for the n64, turning someone into a snowman or hitting someone with a parachute right before they hit a jumped ruled.

the coolboarders on the ps1 was also awesome, same with twisted edge.

1080 snowboarding was too focused on racing.

edit for blademask: read my post later on, the quote was taken out of context for hit/attention purposes. Also, quote mining is extremely disgraceful no matter what context people use it in.

Developer Cites 360 Graphics as Reason for Exclusivity

wasn't deleted by the mod community. Now everyone can enjoy its graphical horsepower!

GVON3551d ago

DelbertGrady3551d ago

I'd like to see a new Transworld Snowboarding game. Still the best snowboarding game out there.

Xbox Fanboys were stoked for stoked.

I'm stoked to strap on a libtech and shed some gnar pow.

I love snowboarding and snowboarding games so i can't wait to play it and it adds vareity to the 15 different NBA/football/soccer/hockey/ten nis/golf/etc sports emulators out there.

Not to mention it's only $40.

Elven63551d ago

Well since the game sold out and sales figures were already revealed....
