The couch co-op multiplayer is a dying breed of game, sadly AAA titles like Halo decided to keep it out of the series last iteration. The market now has a chance to emerge with brilliant ideas that bigger companies might not want to risk taking. Maximum Games have created something different, unusual and very interesting, a game based around co-operative gameplay and mythology; appears to be an interesting concept.
Extreme sports games have been taking a little bit of a hit in recent years. One of the most famous franchises being Tony Hawks Pro Skater having a extremely disappointing last outing. Hopefully though Mark McMorris and friends can bring enough (much needed) enthusiasm back into the lost genre of Snowboarding games.
