Stoked: Reality Snowboarder, 5 Mountains, Stylish or Hucker

Destineer’s upcoming Xbox 360 snowboarder, Stoked, will feature five snowy mountains, including Mt. Shuksan in Washington and Mt. Fuji in Japan. With controls inspired by EA’s SKATE, where the analog sticks control the way your boarder moves.

The game is a reality game, so don’t expect to start pulling off 40 different tricks in the air like you would in the SSX games. However, the game does have one interesting element for the arcade gamer.

You’ll be able to chose two ways to ride: Stylish or a Hucker. Stylish riders pull of a trick or two in the air, but show superior technique. Huckers get sloppy with the tricks and pull off more of them. There will be challenges for each style.

Each mountain in the game is completely open, with default drop/spawn points so you can pick a nice spot to start.

As of now, the game still needs polishing, but once they fix it up, Stoked could be worth checking out.
