Amped 3 may be one of the most underrated game I've played. I love it to death and it makes me laugh every time I play! So much fun
FUN! BETTER than new SSX or Shaun White or Stoked!
Just like you, I was a huge fan of SSX3 and SSX Tricky back in the PS2 days. To my disappointment, the new Xbox360/PS3 version of SSX that came out this year is NOTHING like those old school games. I also tried Shaun White Snowboarding and Stoked and they sucked to say the least. Then, I found this Amped 3 game on a bargain shelf at my local Gamestop for only $4.99, and I AM HOOKED! If you miss the careless stoner-style snowboarding of old-school SSX games, try this game! The story is fun, characters are colorful, and MOUNTAINS ARE HUGE! It's almost impossible to go out of bounds, you are free to roam anywhere and still find new challenges and side missions that you didn't see before. The game starts out kinda slow and the first mountain is nothing special, but once you unlock new states and mountains, the ramps there get more extreme and the story really picks up. There are TONS of unlockable clothes, boards and accessories, and the soundtrack contains hundreds of cool songs, I especially like the Electronica playlist. Graphics are pretty sharp and awesome and the mountains feel really festive as they are populated with hundreds of other boarders and skiers. Also, there are sledge and snowmobile riding challenges. The tricks are not as ridiculously crazy as in SSX series, but they are still pretty extreme and leave room for creativity and challenge! Last but not the least, the game features Constructor mode where you can build your own snow resort with the craziest ramps, rails, halfpipes, etc. FOR ONLY $4.99, THIS GAME IS A STEAL and it's as close as it gets to the old school SSX games!
Greatest game from any system ever
Greatest game in history and that is not an exageration. Played for 4 years to get all the gold medals with my buddys and about to buy it again to do it all over again!!
Its a really fun game to do tricks. I recommend this to kid gamers and to skiers and snowboarders. I hope this helps buyers.
Best so far
I got this game soon after the launch of the 360, and its one of the only games I still have from the launch line-up. Its perfect if you enjoy sandbox games that have challenges for you to do over and over. Sadly, this franchise is dead as Indy Built, the company who made it, has gone under. So this is the final installment in what has been a great series of games. Here's hoping the new SSX revives some interest in Snowboarding games.
This game is good but the graphics are weak! I think that you will get bored with this game in a couple of days. I would recomend waiting to get Amped 4 if it comes out! :(
This game was great on xbox, the first two games but this game seemed like a childs imagination came up with it. every characters name is really wierd and childish. the charters are odd shapes too, like skinny legs and huge feet and skinny body's but huge shoulders. this game would be great if your new to 360 and are under ten. The obsictles on the map are unrealistic there like neon colors and the jumps in real life would probley break your legs. the challages in the game are odd too like grinding for 5 minutes almost or jumping the ski lodge and landing on a tree trunk. its not realestic its more of a arcade because you have to score points to pass levels that all seem the exact same. the mountains all look the same too, rent it first if you like it buy it than. Its only *** dollers thought so.
I just bought amped 3 today and I am very impressed. The graphics are amazing, all of the mountains and resorts are all in the united states and they are not made up. There is no need for instructions you learn all the controls in the tutorial level and they are so easy to pickup. There are tons of songs to listen to while playing that will keep you entertained for nonstop playtime. I was so addicted to the game I almost missed dinner that is how fun the game is. There are hundreds of different challenges litteraly. You are able to shred up the powder with 3 different objects to ride on your snowboard, sleds and snowmobiles. There are tons of different ways to customize your snowboarder. There is a ton of cinematic to keep you in touch of what is happening in the game. If you are looking for a game that is snowboarding and there are hours and hours of nonstop fun this is the game that you are looking for.
Great game its cool how you can unlock more and more challenges. As you go on you can watch videos that are very interesting. I like how you gain respect and people start to watch you. -The controls are easy I got right into it without even reading the instructions. - Many of videos: when you reach certain points in the game. They are fun to watch and also entertaining. -Build feature: Therese this thing where you can build stuff on the mountain and then ride them it so fun cause you can make anything you want. There is a bar at the top and when it reaches all the way to the end then you get a multiplier. And with the build feature you can make a setup where it keeps going. The setup you can make will most likely be fun. There are things like benches, couches and jumps where you can make them as tall or short as you want. -sledding: you can ride on lots of different kinds of sleds. You need to make the biggest crash to set new high scores. There are so many sleds that you can unlock but they are all different in some way the Weiner sleds so far my favorite. -5 mountains: that you can unlock and 3 sections on each one to unlock. There is so much to do and never gets boring.....well maybe after you win the game it might be but that happens with all games. -bad thing: are as follows no multiplayer and um yeah thats all im thinking of Buy this game its my favorite in my collection! :) I highly recommend this game to everyone well almost everyone.
