La réalisation est très correcte, avec une jouabilité assez souple, mais l'ensemble reste assez froid et finalement pas assez réjouissant pour un titre qui se veut divertissant.
It's realistic, it's a simulation, and you should know that from the box art and the words ESPN X-Games Snowboarding on the cover. If you want something casual and wild, go for a different game, but if you want a simulation, a challenging one at that, Konami's got you covered.
Xbox’s Winter X-Games Snowboarding 2002 is a remarkable game and my hat is off to the big 'X.'. With a handful of unique tracks, air-make and half-pipe modes, two-player 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. I only wish you could play your own soundtrack. Still, snowboarding fanatic or not, you must own this game.
This series is still coming along, but I will give kudos to it for presenting quite an impressive career mode. It's got lift passes, video filming, and even tracks your right down to awarding attribute points after every run. Unfortunately, I take issue with the gameplay. You have to make sure to input your spins very early. This means that you can't make those minor corrections that can be so crucial to landing tricks. Also, similar to SSX, you can't reset yourself once you crouch to jump - you're locked in. With a frontend this good, all ESPN needs is a few refinements to bust this franchise out.
ESPN Winter X-Games Snowboarding 2002 is an average port of an average PlayStation 2 game. Even the most ardent snowboarder will find it difficult to like the snail's pace at which the snowboarder mode unfolds, and the confounding controls make it almost impossible to enjoy the rest of the game. Players with short attention spans should stay far away from this game, but those who are dedicated to finding the most realistic snowboarding simulation on the market should give this and Amped a rent to see which game appeals to them more.
Could Konami come up with the longer, more unimaginative name? ESPN Winter Games Snowboarding 2002 really doesn't have much to offer, but for only $9.99 (at Best Buy), I couldn't resist. The truth is, snowboarding games are a dime a dozen, and there's nothing here to make this one stand out.
