There aren’t as many moves as Cool Boarders, and the only way you can totally screw up a trick is if you attempt to make a landing while completely inverted, so we are talking about something much easier to get into. You also get instant jumps, so there’s no need for that tricky lining-up a mile before the ramps. Some great track scenery makes for an exhilarating ride down the mountain and a spectacular stage for your stunts – a huge cliff, a wintry waterfall, a snowed-covered cabin. Also, the novel challenge of performing tricks for a hovering TV helicopter (for that is what you do in the career mode) is new and compelling, and to top it off you get famous Capcom characters to play with if you’re good enough! Nice one.

The controls are a bit on the unusual side. They force players to use the d-pad and the shoulder buttons simultaneously. They are not nearly as responsive as we might have liked. The two-player mode, however, is far and away the best of any snowboarding game this season. It offers options to compete for speed, tricks, or total rank and gives players the ability to split the screen horizontally or vertically. It even supports those dusty link cables. Gamers looking for basic, clean, super-responsive, downhill snowboarding may be better off with MTV Sports Snowboarding, but for gorgeous scenery, tons of options, and the ability to shred as Leon, Claire or the dread Zombie Cop - all from Resident Evil, Trick'n Snowboarder is the best bet.

De graphics zijn oké maar niet zo goed dat je er op gaat letten en de soundtrack is op zijn zachtst gezegd belabberd en doet nog het meeste denken aan de soundtrack van Ridge Racer. Nou ja, het ligt ook voor de hand, dit soort shit vinden ze in Japan koel. Er zijn een paar mooie tracks maar de irritante voice-over die je iedere keer dat je geen stunt uitvoert vraagt "what went wrong?", maakt dat ik dit spel waarschijnlijk nooit meer zal spelen.
So while Trick'n Snowboarder may not pack enough original mojo to rise far above other well-known titles in its genre, it plays fast and looks good. Although it might be a bit on the shallow side for one-player action, it's great for two-player battles, thanks to a wide selection of courses and fluid gameplay.

Das ging in die Hose! Mal abgesehen von der Aufmachung, (ist ja eh alles Geschmackssache) kann vor allem die Technik nicht zu Begeisterungsstürmen hinreißen. Ständig fühlt ihr euch bedroht, da vor und hinter euch das große Nichts herrscht: Jetzt bloß nicht von der Erde fallen! Im Ernst: hinter euch clippt die Strecke weg, dass es eine wahre Freude ist, und vor euch bauen sich gewaltige Bergmassive aus dem Nichts aus. Auch die billigen 2D-Pappaufsteller am Rand sehen einfach nur ekelhaft aus – da helfen auch nette Ideen wie der Sprung über einen fahrenden Zug oder ein Hund, der euch nachläuft und ins Bein beißen, will nicht weiter.

Bref, ce titre ne rivalise pas avec Pro-Boarders ou Coolboarders 3. On l'oublie !

Un jeu simple, mais qui rebute par son manque de fun et de convivialité... À dégager !

Trick‘n Snowboarder enttäuscht mich auf ganzer Linie, Für Capcom ungewöhnlich, bekommt ihr es mit einer extrem unausgewogenen Steuerung zu tun. In puncto Grafik präsentieren sich die Pisten relativ flott, worunter jedoch die Übersichtlichkeit extrem leidet. Die Ausführung der Tricks setzt dem Ganzen die Krone auf: König Zufall regiert das Geschehen.

The problem is, that story involves your tricks being filmed, so when you're nearing a jump point a PIP screen pops up showing your run from a different angle-and dropping the frame-rate to a pathetic, unplayable level. And two-player split-screen mode suffers from the same problem. So what else is there? Not much. It's a rental at best.
