Mark McMorris Infinite Air is know as “A fresh welcome into snowboarding for newcomers and a challenging step into untracked territory for seasoned boarders”. One of the first things I will agree with on this is it definitely is challenging. While fun at times, the control system is fairly complex and hard to get a handle on. With that being said, once you are able to spend time with the controls, they do get a little easier. The controls themselves I feel are built as a more professional simulator for Snowboarding then your more traditional arcade style game.

One thing that is unique about this game is the Mountain Editor is that it allows you to make a copy of the entire mountain as is, create your own runs with jumps, cliffs, rails, ramps and countless other items, taking the next step to defining your riding style! It also allows you to upload your custom mountain and share with friends and other online players.

While moving around the mountain, the game gives you the ability to jump into your own helicopter and fly to anywhere on the mountain to shred however and wherever you want. The one thing i was hoping for when I saw the word “Drop in” from the helicopter was an epic free-fall, but unfortunately it treats it like a loading point and already starts you on the mountain slope.

Bottom Line
 

Overall, this is a really solid game if you are looking for that more realism feel in a Snowboarding game. If you are looking for that more arcade style SSX feeling from back in the day then this might not be the game for you. The custom mountains and sharing with friends adds a unique feeling to the game that will make it fun to get with friends to see who can come up with the best mountains and go shred them together.
