Pure really impressed us at the Games Convention with its over the top gameplay and a very impressive engine, and this tricks featurette certainly doesn't prove us wrong. Arcade fans, keep an eye open for this game!

The game looks impressiv, really impressiv. But that trick 'n stunt thing is nothing for me. I wanna race for a first place, not doing weird stuff in the air. I imagine that this is gonna get very very boring after a few hours... But however, I'm gonna load the demo, and give it a try =)

But you don't buy a snowboard game for racing.

I'm on the same line here as Hrimthur. The game looks awesome, but the tricks looks pretty bland and eventually you get tired of having to do a tricks in order to win. Hope I'm wrong though, but a mode which let you utilize all the boost you want without having to do any tricks would be sweet.

as i said to hrimthur, the problems you have could be applied to SSX, yet that remained fun and STILL remains fun today. they use the same mechanics so they share a lot of similarities. difference being the choice of transportation. they are both just as much about tricks as they are about racing, thats what makes them so fun. it mixes things up a bit. its not just about taking every corner perfectly and placing first like every other racer in existance, its about doing tricks, to get boost, the help fight for the lead. PURe and SSX arnt suposed to be straight up racers.

SSX is a great, great racing game. I just hope this game carries the same sense of risk versus reward that SSX did. It looks fantastic though, I'm really digging it.

About the game

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The 360 was great though.. but I even if Spencer is comparing XB1's performance to the 360's... that seems like yuge spin when you compare it to the PS4. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Some of those games are not Xbox exclusives. (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @MikeManiac61: Hold on, no memorable games? Halo 3, Reach and 4?,Gears 1-3? Forza Motorsport and Horizon? Lost odyssey? Condemned? Crackdown? Alan Wake? Come on now :) (5 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the first game reminds me a lot of the souls series. doing dungeons/bosses in different orders, cryptic messages and hard to find areas. (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth Legend of Zelda done, now on to Link to the Past. (6 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: That's true. I can't remember any memorable IP's from the 360 days lol. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The success of the 360 had *a lot* to do with it being the best multiplatform console. There may be a diminishing returns thing there though... we'll see. (7 Hours ago)
