PSX Extreme (Jun 07, 1999)
Big Air has numerous little problems, like so-so graphics and no vocals in game music, but it also has some nice touches - namely the ease of combining moves, the variety/lengthiness of the tracks, stage design, and a good use of sponsors. In the big picture, Cool Boarders 3 is still the king of the Playstation snowboarding scene. Big Air is a worthy first attempt, but I can't say it's in your best interest to buy it. It's summer time anyway, so go outside and play.

Big Air zu bewerten, ist eine zweischneidige Angelegenheit. Warum fehlen so selbstverständliche Modi wie Time Attack und Slalom? Was zum Geier spricht gegen eine optionale Ich-Perspektive, eine Streckenkarte, einen Board-Editor, Nachtfahrten und ‘nicht-flache‘ Bäume? Weshalb bitte die auftretenden Ladezeiten, wenn man z.B. ein Training wiederholen möchte (bei Cool Boarders 3 drückt man „restart“ und die Sache hat sich)? Könnten die Strecken (vor allem die paar Meter Halfpipe) nicht etwas länger sein? Seit wann MUSS man in einer Bonusrunde eine bestimmte Anzahl Punkte ergattern, um weiterspielen zu dürfen? Teilweise wiedergutmachen kann Big Air all diese Schnitzer durch seine gelungene Präsentation. Dazu technisch tadellose Grafik (Fotografen am Streckenrand, glühende Lensflare-Effekte), witzige Gags und authentische Moves. Ein wirklich guter Versuch . trotzdem geht Cool Boarders 3 eindeutig als Erster über die Ziellinie.

What we really need on the Playstation is another snowboarding game... Right? Wrong! Another Cool Boarders game would be stretching it, but Big Air falls short of that mark. I found playing Big Air was like riding an emotional rollercoaster ride. One minute I was suitably impressed with the graphics... the next I was tearing out my hair at the glitches and pop-up. At times I felt in total control and then suddenly with a touch of the slash turn button my skier was wrapped up in the scenery and completely out of it. Bit of a Jeckyl and Hyde game.

It's slim pickings when it comes to snowboarding games on the PlayStation, and Big Air offers one more choice, it's not the best, but it's by far not the worst.

Overall, Big Air is full of big potential, yet provides only average gaming satisfaction

Certainly this is not an offensive game by any means, but it's remarkably average.

Big Air is a disappointing game by some very talented developers. Although this game could have distinguished itself as the king of the snowboard genre, it instead accepts the label of just another snowboard clone. Pass up on renting this one unless you’re a hardcore snowboard fan.

Det här är ett sånt där spel som kommer att samla damm på din hylla en bra bit in i nästa årtusende. Eller så tar du fram det när du är uttråkad. Väldigt uttråkad...

Leider ist Big Air grafisch sehr schwach, verfügt aber über einen guten Soundtrack.

Bad graphics, horrible control, more time spent loading then playing, hum-drum sounds, awful score, unnoticeable change in difficulty settings. Enough said.
