Game developer 2XL Games recently teamed up with ESPN to release X Games SnoCross, a Winter X Games branded snowmobile racing game. Fans of 2XL ATV Offroad will find the game quite familiar as it seems much like a snowmobile reskin of that game.

X Games SnoCross offers 6 SnoCross race tracks, 2 freestyle tracks including daytime and nighttime events. Winter X Games branding comes in with the ability to play as medalists Levi LaVallee and Heath Frisby. The game comes with tricks buttons, local multi-player, career mode and arcade modes.

We've only spent a brief amount of time with it, but the game layout and feel is quite similar to 2XL ATV Offroad, a game we quite enjoyed. Early reactions have been limited though the the early feedback indicating the game has little new to offer for those who already own 2XL's other games -- aside, of course, from the Winter X Games touches.

App Store Link: X Games SnoCross, $4.99

    I like the look of this game.

    I read that the controls were really refined and good, out of the 2xl games, which one is the best? I missed the chance to get the ATV one since i did not have any itunes cards to put on my account.

      ATV Offroad >> Supercross

      This one seems like Offroad reskinned and with fewer courses, so unless you are in love with the SnoCross theme, Offroad is the safe bet.

        I really like snow mobile games since having played arctic thunder a while ago, hopefully a game like that gets ported to the itouch which would be fun.

      You can also try the cheaper and less feature rich Snow Motor racing (+free lite edition):
