Summary

What other game at the time (or to date?) can you skydive??!

The Good

This game got to show off the new high-tech capabilities the SNES had. I think it was the 2nd game released for the SNES where I lived, so I had to buy it. It was definitely different than any game I had previously played. Beside from the fact that its kind of a crazy extreme sports obstacle course kinda game, the SNES was new and this game showed off the new abilities such as scaling that the NES couldn't do. The jetpack areas were pretty fun.

The Bad

If you weren't good enough to get a better class license, you couldn't advance to anything new. I wasn't that good so it took quite awhile to finally get to do something else...which wasn't fun.

The Bottom Line

A good game for it's time. Different kind of simulator most others.
