Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

What: "Amped: Freestyle Snowboarding"
Publisher: Microsoft Corp.
Developer: Microsoft Corp.
Format: DVD for Xbox™ video game console
Availability: Fall 2001

Product Overview:
"Amped: Freestyle Snowboarding" is the first snowboarding game focused on freestyle riding down real mountains. Jib and spin off of a huge variety of jumps and rails for a different ride every time. Players pull insane tricks in front of roaming sponsors and camera crews to get their face on magazine covers and in videos. The game's goal is simple: achieve enough international exposure to become one of the world's snowboarding media superstars.

Features:
· Open freestyle riding - players can forget miles of barren wasteland and tight tunnel racers. Trick off of a huge variety of jumps and rails on wide-open mountain runs. Jib, bonk or spin between runs to hidden areas and cool jump sequences designed for trick combos. Mountains are alive with crashing boarders, flying pros and roaming photographers.

· Spectacular real mountains - players ride the runs on real mountain resorts: Utah's Brighton, Vermont's Stratton and California's Snow Summit. See jaw-dropping mountain graphics built for - not ported to - the Xbox. Unlock international fantasy venues designed by world-renown terrain architect Chris Gunnerson.

· Be a snowboarding media star - players earn exposure points to become one of the World's Top 10 snowboarding media superstars. Pull tricks in front of roaming spectators to gain exposure - multipliers depend on who sees the tricks and how good they look. Take on challenges like "follow the pro" or shred the bark off trees to gain exposure and unlock mountains.

· More in-game choice for maximum replayability - players make their gameplay choices on the mountain, not in a menu of disconnected events. Players start at the top of a peak and decide how to win. Jump between 120 different runs packed with rails, kickers and half-pipes, each with six unique challenges, hidden areas and a rotating stream of spectators, for a different ride every time. Experience true freestyle multiplayer-when not showing-off, players can taunt or throw snowballs at friends in freestyle multiplayer competitions.
