Well that was fast. X2 Snowboarding [App Store] just showed up for download mere moments ago, and only a couple hours after our hands-on preview.

We'll have an in-depth review soon, but currently this is the snowboarding game for future games in the genre to beat. X2 Snowboarding has great tilt controls, awesome cell shaded graphics, a single player game mode with unlockables, a licensed soundtrack, and even local multiplayer via Bluetooth and WiFi.

I was extremely impressed with the game in our preview, and look forward to it soaking up a good deal of my spare time in the future. In case you missed it the first time around, here is a brief gameplay video again:

App Store Link: X2 Snowboarding, $6.99

    This looks better then Shaun White so I'm going to pick this up! Only thing that might be a problem is that voice... Hopefully it can be silenced! It wouldn't stop me from buying the game but it would get annoying after 5 minutes.

    Shaun White has better controls and is more fun.

    • Jack90201

      and is less expensive !

        shaun white was crap!

    • akira01

      I found X2 snowboarding far better than Shaun white. Not even in the same level of product for me.

    The game is really nice and looks goods, but until the price is lowered, there are better quality/price offerings on the App store like Shaun White.

    • Darkside

      Shaun Whites was dropped in price because it sucks. Not tried this one yet but it already looks waaay better than that POS.

    Looks good

    I'd suggest a good mic & preamp for recording voices...maybe some voice talent too... ;)

    Where's the love for Crazy Snowboard? $0.99, Plus+ awards and leaderboards, 3D, 30 missions, tilt steering, grinds, multipliers, unlockable grabs, boards, dudes, and constant updates.

    • Runner76

      Agreed. Not as good as this one but more fun than Shaun Whites boring game.

      • RNF

        Crazy Snowboard is a blast! The Halloween version is awesome!

    • Jake

      Yuck!

      Sorry, I'm not a fan of Crazy ... in fact, I would go so far as to say it outright sucks.

      I'm not that hot on Shaun White either, but it's still better than Crazy. Yee-uck!

    LOL, I'm betting ezone, runner76 and rnf are the same person. What a shameless plug. I loved your game when it first came out months ago, but your not even the second best, your third or fourth on the best snowboard game for iPhones. Shaun White is better than Crazy Snowboard but X2 Snowboard is infinitely better than than Crazy Snowboarder. It's just no match!

    No match. At all.

    • Runner76

      No we're not the same person. It's been my first reply here. True. But I just had to reply this time because I personally dislike games that have a brand name and are programmed poorly. Some gaming companies believe they should rather use their money on expansive licenses instead of good programmers. I couldn't disagree more.

    • http://iphone.ezone.com/ Ezone

      Someone's got to plug it!

      It can't be that bad a game if over 130,000 people have bought although it's never been featured by Apple or got an article on TA.

        What did PT Barnum say, again..?

    This game is incredible. It truly feels like a legit console title. I was a bit apprehensive about purchasing another snowboard game because I hated both Shaun White and Crazy, but since I am a sucker fo cel shading I went for it. The graphics are only icing on the cake. Great responsive controls that are customizable, nice level layout, sound is good( yes you can turn off the voices), Local multiplayer, and cool little perks like instant replay and a prince of Persia-esque time rewind, culminate to make this an outstanding app. My only gripe is that there seems to be a problem with the tilt controls for manuals. Other than that, it's an outstanding game that's worth every cent. The bar has been raised.
