Inutile d'y aller par quatre chemins, Nintendo nous a, une fois de plus, concocté là un jeu fédérateur, capable d'augmenter substantiellement les ventes de sa console. 1080° pousse le souci du détail à l'extrême. Que ce soit au niveau graphique ou sonore. Jamais la sensation de surfer n'a été aussi proche de la réalité, sur console aussi bien qu'en arcade. En outre, la multiplicité des modes de jeux assure à 1080° une durée de vie sans précédent. Enfin, nous conclurons par l'aspect résolument convivial du mode « deux joueurs », qui a converti tous les membres de X64 aux joies de la glisse.

Nintendo hat mit diesem hochklassigen Modul voll ins Schwarze getroffen – wenn es auch völlig unverständlich ist, daß die PAL-Version tatsächlich erst im Winter dieses Jahres auf den Markt kommen soll. Für Freunde des knackigen Sports verspricht das Import-Modul phantastische Unterhaltung in brillante Qualität und guter Ausstattung. Zugreifen ist also angesagt!

Le meilleur snowboard toutes consoles confondues. C'est signé Nintendo, et, comme d'habitude, Mario met une grande claque à tout le monde.

If you are even mildly intrested in snowboarding this game is for you. I'm sure glad that the developer named EAD (also responsible for WaveRace and F-Zero-X) are second party developer and the grubby hands of Sony can't get their hands on them. (webmaster's note: EAD is a in-house development team on Nintendo) If I had to sum this game up in 2 words-Pure Class.

1080 tient ses promesses et en met plein la vue même s'il n'est pas le jeu du siècle. Un très bon jeu qui fait du bien à la logithèque de la N64 !

Une fois de plus, c'est un titre développé par Nintendo qui nous montre de quoi la machine est capable. Mais comme la perfection n'est pas de ce monde, nous devons signaler que le jeu comporte de vilains ralentissements. Pour être franc, le plaisir est tellement intense que l'on n'y prête même plus attention.

The Video Game Critic
One negative aspect of the game is the soundtrack, which dishes out some of the most repetitive crap I've ever heard in a video game. Also, I noticed that some characters have trouble nailing their landings even after performing simple tricks. Otherwise 1080 is a phenomenal title that's hard to put down. A nice two-player split screen mode is included and the cartridge automatically saves high scores. Before SSX came along, nothing could touch this.

There's a good variety of tracks, including a half pipe and an air-make high jump track. Plus, once you beat the five expert courses, secret tracks open up. A two-player option--and a variety of different play modes--also insure that playing 1080 won't get old too quickly. If it does, sit back and admire the lush graphics--down to the ripple of the riders' jackets in the rushing wind--and be amazed by this game. 1080 Degree Snowboarding--to all gamers, not just snowboard freaks like me--is one of the few true must-have games for the Nintendo 64. Go buy it.

Polecam grę każdemu posiadaczowi N64, ponieważ jest to jedna z nielicznych gier, która za tak niewiele oferuje tak wiele. Jeśli dodatkowo jesteś fanem deskorolek, łyżworolek, no i oczywiście snowboardu, oraz bawi cię wykonywanie karkołomnych ewolucji, to dla ciebie jest to po prostu tytuł obowiązkowy. Jedynymi grami na Nintendo 64 o zbliżonej tematyce jest seria Tony Hawk, która do najtańszych nie należy, dlatego myślę, że warto zainteresować się 1080 Snowboarding, bo chociaż nie jest tak rozreklamowana, jak inne gry, to jednak gwarantuje kilkadziesiąt godzin porządnej rozrywki. Odradzam jednak jakiekolwiek próby grania w nią na dwóch graczy. Jako rekompensatę dostajemy tryb Trick Attack, w którym można grać na Half Pipe nawet w kilka osób po kolei, ponieważ pojedynczy zjazd zajmuje jedynie czterdzieści sekund, a zabawa jest naprawdę przednia.

As with many of Nintendo's games this is another split screen multiplayer game. Even though it is split screen it is still a lot of fun, everybody enjoys boarding past there opponent and flicking a bit of snow in there eyes. In two player mode, the players can only race each other which means there are no other computer opponents. Overall this is one of the best multiplayer racing games I have played.

Le premier jeu de snowboard réaliste sur N64 est plutôt une réussite. On regrettera juste que l'aspect figure soit si complexe...

Por todo esto, el título se convierte en un imprescindible en toda regla, incluso aunque el género no sea el más predilecto de muchos.

Van alle tot nu toe door mij geteste snowboardgames ziet ik 1080_ Snowboarding absoluut bovenaan. Wat een vette game! Niet alleen zijn de graphics prachtig om te zien, ook de gameplay is perfect. En juist het feit dat hij best moeilijk om te spelen is, maakt de uitdaging des te groter. IJskoud de lekkerste voor alle Nintendo 64 bezitters.

Nintendo's 1080° Snowboarding is a remarkable game and our hats are off to the big 'N.' With a handful of unique tracks, air-make and half-pipe modes, two-player and Rumble Pak support, an ultra-realistic look with spectacular graphics and tons of tricks, jumps, and air there is a lot of fun to be had with this game. We only wish Nintendo had spent a few more months implementing additional tracks and removing invisible walls before its release. Still, snowboarding fanatic or not, you must get this game.

1080 Snowboarding is one of the best snowboarding games available on any system. It's an exhilarating-looking game with a great combo-driven trick system and tracks that are actually fun to race. It also requires a lot more skill than most of the competition.

Un très bon jeu, proposant beaucoup de modes différents et qui n'a pas tellement perdu de sa saveur aujourd'hui.

Retrogaming History
1080° Snowboarding è stato il primo della sua categoria a sintetizzare efficacemente l'armonico rapporto simbiotico tra tavola e neve. Scendere sulla pista è come accarezzare morbida pelle, ma l'incantesimo dura fin quando non si volge lo sguardo alla mediocre intelligenza artificiale che sottrae alle sfide un po' di passione. E nonostante sia un'esperienza straordinariamente appagante, dura davvero troppo poco.

Whether you feel like freeriding or going for Phat Air, you're going to have fun in 1080°. We would have liked more courses and a greater variety of runs, but, of course, we're never satisfied. The snowboard feeling is excellent and the tricks add depth.

1080 Snowboarding is so close to being a classic it just makes me weep to think about it. My disappointment is one of degrees though. 1080 is solid, fun and definitely worth a purchase. But had they upped the AI a notch, provided a few more courses and improved the 2-player action, 1080 Snowboarding would have moved into a top spot with the N64's best of the best. Other than these quibbles (which may have benefited from more cartridge memory) this game is as solid as you get for the N64. The game has plenty of character, the snowboard options are plentiful, and it exhibits superb sound and a decent soundtrack (it's amazing how cool MIDI can be if done properly). But for all its numerous strengths, it simply will not keep me, or anyone else in the EP office, interested for more than a week. How sad, because they produced a beautiful game, just not enough of it.

Although my review has beaten up on the games controls and steep learning curve, once you get it all down, you will be set on top of the hill for a great ride down the slope.

Perhaps the biggest disappointment is the limited 2 player mode. You can race a friend via a split screen, which looks good and maintains the framerate. But tricks are of no consequence; it's only a matter of speed. I would like to have seen a 2 player race that involved tricks, maybe one where your final score is a combination of speed and trick points.

Overall, 1080 Snowboarding is a worthy title. A few bugs aside, this is the best snowboard game out and a must for sports fans, period.

En effet, 1080° Snowboarding fait déjà partie de ces titres mythiques qui justifient à eux seuls l'achat de la console. Bien qu'on s'y soit tous attendu plus ou moins, c'est quand même une grande claque.
