He just wanted to create a thread for some reason.  I have absolutely no idea why people do these things.

Is the trick system like the one in the N64 version? Because i didn't like that. It felt like you had to press to many buttons to pull off one trick.

Well if you are getting 1080 as a trick game, then you will be sorely disappointed...If you want a sim, get 1080...If you want Tony Hawk on a snowboard, get SSX...From what I hear, the trick system is still "tricky," but in my case that will only make it more satisfying to pull off something...

I'm reluctantly making this the official thread simply because there isn't a catch-all thread for 1080.

7.3 from IGN

I actually thought the review was pretty well written because it explains the score, unlike some other, recent IGN reviews. Supposedly the trick system, controls, framerate, and overall length of the game needed improvement. But I'm waiting for the PGC review for the final say.

Either way I'm still going to get the game for Christmas, it looks fun and from the demo version, it is very fast. I especially want to try out Warp Pipe with it...

i don't have to read IGNs review to guarantee they will compare it to SSX3 in every regard despite the fact that for the most part they are apples and oranges

Its not comparing apples and oranges as much as you would think.  There are fair comparisons like framerate, track length, graphics, music, and since 1080 has a trick mode then even that can be compared because they opened themselves up for it.  As a racer the tracks should be quite a bit longer, its that simple.  I think that sometimes the argument of making sub genre's is used as an excuse to say that two games should not be compared when in all actuality they can be and should be.  Had 1080 pulled it off better then SSX 3 then no one would have any problem making the comparison.

The crap thing is that Nintendo are spending all thsi time on the game, and it turns out to be short. Johnny Metts said it in his impressions, IGN said it in their review.
I reconsidering getting it now, cause I thought that IGN were being pansy against Nintendo, but when PGC said the same thing, it makes you think....

I know that comparing 1080 to SSX is like apples and oranges, but I would rather Nintendo and NST have made more of an effort to make it, say, longer, more involving, and adding planey more features in terms of presentation, racers, boards, tracks, etc.
The game seems ok from what I've read thus far, but come on, surely NIntendo's new strategy of pick-up-and-play/easier games doesn't extend to thier more established franchises, and their more 'mature' ones at that.

I never heard any complaints about the first one being too short, and there are fewer tracks in the first one...

I hate the fact that people have been complaining that Nintendo has been making games that are too hard to "pick up and play" and too difficult. Then Nintendo tries to remedy that with Mario Kart and 1080 and now people are complaining that it's too easy, not deep enough and Nintendo is "losing it's touch".

They are not polar opposites.  There is a difference between being easy to pick-up and play and being shallow.  They could have a lot more depth in the game with similar controls and mechanics.  It doesnt bother me that games have an fast learning curve but it does bother me that by the time you are at peak performance you are at the end of the game.

In respect to 1080, they could have kept the controls and physics of it, they could have made it the same in every mechanical detail but it would have been an infinetely better game had they made the tracks longer and allowed you to race multiple CPU charachters at once.

Hows the framerate?  I havent been able to get a real answer yet.  IGN says its unpredictable.  Hows it run?
