Cool Boarders 2
PlayStationUne simu qui inclut tout ce qui crée l'engouement pour le Snowboard, Snowpark et Half-Pipe, et regroupe aussi bien le Freestyle, le Freeride que l'Alpin.
PlayStationThe original game was okay but I soon became bored with racing the same tracks over and over again. Cool Boarders 2 oozes quality and offers so much in terms of gameplay that I can heartily recommend this titles for all gamers who enjoy a racing challenge.
PlayStationWhat a difference a year makes. I commend the developers for not throwing the same crap out and slapping a 2 at the end of the name. This game fixes a majority of my complaints with the original (other than the commentator) and adds a bounty of new goodies. If the original did not impress you, I suggest you give this one a try. I think you may find it more to your liking. If you got into the first one, you will be in snowboarding heaven with number 2.
PlayStationUltimately, Cool Boarders 2 is a real mixed bag. It's is worth checking out if you're a fan of snowboarding, but you may want to rent it first.
PlayStationThe great graphics and replay camera angles on this game can make up for any lacking in game play, almost. While the game is difficult to play, initially, it can be learned with a fair amount of practice (and maybe a few minutes spent reading the manual). This game has more play features than the original, but the features really just isolate aspects of the same game included in Cool Boarders. While this game, especially the two-player feature, is definitely an improvement over the original, its improvements are more for the player who wants a game to spend all winter just trying to beat a computer opponent.
PlayStationWith its many modes of play and dozens of moves to master, Cool Boarders 2 is much better than the original. The simplicity of the Halfpipe mode alone is extremely addicting and offers hours of challenging "drops." Even if you dislike racing games or wince at the word "extreme," Cool Boarders 2 is recommended, especially to fans of other combo-driven gaming styles.
PlayStationJ'en connais qui ont dû se dire qu'il serait très facile de refourguer aux kids une suite à peine réactualisée d'un jeu qui s'est vendu l'année dernière sur la réputation d'une discipline (malheureusement) de plus en plus médiatisée ! Ne vous faites pas avoir, d'autres productions du même type nettement mieux programmées devraient voir le jour cet hiver.
PlayStationDespite the improved visuals however, there are still far too many unsightly seams. The split-screen mode divides the screen down the center, and while it's certainly playable, the fact that you're only racing against one opponent means you'll rarely see anyone else on the course. Cool Boarders 2 was a major step up for the franchise, but the best was yet to come.
