Snowboarding is now an official discipline for the Olympics, and has become one of the most popular sports of the nineties. Phat Air Extreme Snowboarding takes the sport of the piste and onto the Playstation. It includes all the familiar jumps, tricks, turns and of course falling flat on your face.
The game has six different disciplines and is split into 9 different levels. From this choice there are also five characters to choose from and all have different boarding techniques and styles.
After each discipline you will be awarded a number of skill points depending on your position, which is based on finishing position and trick points. These skill points can be used to alter the skills of your boarder. Increase the speed or improve the cornering abilities. Change the trick skills or recover faster from hits or falls. You can do a lot of things with your skill-points and it can all be saved to the memory card.
