ZTGD Review: We Ski & Snowboard

ZeroTolerance of ZTGD writes: When Nintendo released its balance board peripheral last year everyone thought it would see loads of support from third-party developers. Unfortunately very few have taken advantage of the unique controller thus making it a generally wasted opportunity for Nintendo. Namco Bandai was one of the first to support the peripheral with last year's We Ski, a simple and addictive title that made great use of both the motion controls and the balance board to create one of the most entertaining experiences on the console. Less than a year later the team returns with We Ski & Snowboard, which is essentially a beefed-up iteration of the abovementioned title with just enough new to make it worth a second look.

Pros
+ Relaxing experience
+ Two new venues
+ Controls are still solid

Cons
- Trick system feels tedious
- Not goal-oriented
- Snowboarding and skiing feel very similar (We Ski and Snowboard, We Ski World: Ski and Snowboard, Wii) 7.3/10
