I enjoyed playing this game. I have CB3 and this game is a lot better. They’ve done a good job making the game seem more like the real deal. Well, okay, it’s not really like going snowboardin’, but the game’s at least closer to N64’s 1080. There are plenty of modes, new boards, mountains, and pros to unlock so what are you Powder Heads waiting for? If you can’t have the real thing, then this game may be your best option.

Wer für seine Lieblingskonsole noch kein Boarder-Game sein Eigen nennen kann, der sollte den direkten Vorgänger vorziehen, da dieser im Gesamtbild ausgewogener wirkt. Freaks werden sich schon alleine wegen der neuen Boarder und Strecken den vierten Teil zulegen. Wären nicht die kleinen optischen Schnitzer, so würde CB4 nicht knapp an der 80er-Marke vorbeischrammen. Somit bleibt leider nur ein Platz auf den Rängen hinter der Nr. 1: Cool Boarders 3.

Cool Boarders 4 should feel as if we have been provided with a vastly improved product, but it's more like we are being squeezed for every cent they can get out of us. My recommendation would be to pick up last years version and save yourselves some money in the process. Maybe you could buy the video of Halloween 20 with the spare cash.

There are many improvements in Cool Boarders 4, some which make the game more appealing to play. Although the tricks seem boring the gameplay it's self is not bad. I would suggest renting it first to see how you like it, and then if you are satisfied purchase it.
The Video Game Critic
Unlike Cool Boarders 3, the trees are more varied in appearance and pose less of a hazard. The Tournament mode is largely unchanged, except annoying cheering sound effects have been added. Sony actually licensed professional snowboarders for this game, so your opponents are real people. The franchise seemed to lose a bit of momentum with this fourth entry, but this is still a very respectable snowboarding title.
In the end, with its tighter controls and better courses, CB4 is basically a better version of CB3. Whether or not you were a fan of the last title, if you're a fan of the series, you should definitely give Cool Boarders 4 a try.

Cool Boarders 4 heeft een zeer hoog 'deja vu, been there done that, aha-erlebnis' gehalte. Het is dan ook niet veel meer dan een opgepoetste versie van CB 3. Alleen bedoeld voor wie nog geen snowboardgame in z'n bezit heeft.
Digital Press - Classic Video Games
Overall, the game is definitely one of the better snowboarding games available for the Playstation. Unfortunately, other games have done it better. Sequel-itis is setting in with this game as little improvements are being made to help the series keep up with other, more advanced games. Fans of the series will enjoy playing through the latest edition of Cool Boarders, but will find little incentive to go out and actually put down the cash to justify a purchase.
La série des Cool Boarders viellit assez mal. Si ce quatrième volet conserve tout ce qui fait le charme du genre, on ne peut que regretter le manque d'évolution graphique. Cool Boarders 4 est loin d'être mauvais et dispose d'une large panoplie de modes de jeu et de mouvements. Les fans y trouveront sûrement leur compte si la réalisation du jeu et l'originalité ne font pas partie de leurs priorités.
Un jeu sans âme et une pâle copie de Coolboarders 3 qui était déjà lui même une copie des précédents numéros. Les accros s'y retrouveront peut-être mais sans entrain aucun.
Super Play
Kanske är det på tiden att Sony byter namn på sin serie. Cool Boarders 4 innehåller i alla fall ingenting coolt. Snarare handlar det om ännu ett försök att lura på oss någonting som vi egentligen klarar oss lika bra utan.
