SBK: Snowboard Kids


SNOWBOARD KIDS
... don't ring any bells?

OK Well to bring you up to speed Snowboard Kids and Snowboard Kids 2 were snowboarding games on the N64 much like 1080 Snowboarding, but with 10 year old kids... but shockingly it was fun! It was like Mario Kart on Snowboards... literally from the power ups to taunting your opponent to the surprisingly good music it was everything!

Then in 2005 Atlus brought back Snowboard Kids to the DS and what did we get? A Steaming pile of [Insert swear word here]

First off if you're a fan of the series and I say IF then you'd probably realize the kids aren't kids anymore, no they're teenagers! Also they don't have those gargantuan noses like they did in the N64, OK let's break down the characters:

Slash Kamei- He's the balanced out character, good for beginners. He wears a lightning bolt t shirt has Goku style hair and enters the tourney to prove how good he is

Nancy Neil- A chick from the UK who is cold, nasty and mean...kinda stereotyping eh Atlus? She enters the contest to prove how good she is

Jam [I have no Idea how to spell his last name] A Jamaican boy who loves to rap and is a battle rap champion [I could out rap him though] who is very smug. He enters the contest to show off his skills. He is rivals with Nancy.

Brad Maltinie- A wealthy kid who is very cool with his friends, he enters the tourney to keep in eye on Nancy, whom he met a his folks company picnic and it was love at first site.

Tommy Parsy- An antagonistic kid from Canada, he's fat and loves to eat and he likes to bully others [typical] he too is in love with Nancy and vies to win her over and he will stop at nothing to do so.

Koyuki Tanaka- A Japanese chick who came to the US to compete in the tourney, she speaks no English.

Well this game isn't bad but it isn't that good either


Controls-
Not the best I've seen but certainly not the worst

Graphics-
The Characters look great...considering Atlus did make it

Gameplay
- So/So

Sound-
The music is good and so is the voice acting even though it does get repetitive

OVERALL- Skip it unless you're curious, it can go so far as a rental that's about it.

Re: SBK: Snowboard Kids

Great job Chuck! This is a good qualitive review in explanations... well, I shouldn't say explanations, using funny anecdotes and explainging in an interesting manner, also personal experiences and such are what a good review is at.
Please downsize the font... a lot! and try to lengthen out your reviews as much as possible. If you were to write this on word first, about 10 point font, it should be about 1-2 pages at least. I come from a big reviewing site, so I'm not impressed too easily, but this definitely shows some groundwork on what could be great.

About the game, I've never played it, but I've always though about trying it back in the day. the 1080 games and SSX tricky are my favourites.

Re: SBK: Snowboard Kids

1080 and Twisted edge on the 64 were way better than either of those Steven.

Yes Chuck, I replied.
