This game is probably best for the snowboarders that prefer a simulation rather than an arcade experience. If you think you are just going to be able to fly full-speed down the hill, you are mistaken.
If you take a jump and on the way down you think to yourself, "oh no, this is not going to be good", you are probably going to die. LOL I recommend you take it easy and don't do anything you would not do in real life. I find it very useful to scrub off speed by taking an "S" shaped path down the hill. If you just go straight down, you are going to fail!
One gratifying thing about failing is that your avatar goes flying, doing flips, and makes funny sounds all in ragdoll mode. Sometimes I find it very satisfying to try aiming for a tree just so my guy will get owned. :D
As far as what it is lacking, there are a couple of things that I hear the developer is working on. Those include adding music, different game modes (including arcade style), unique abilities and handling characteristics for the various snowboards, and some other things. I think that will make this a game for all audiences.
