    I am so glad you guys gave props to Amped 2! I remember back in the day it got lukewarm reviews from both G4 and gameinformer (my two main sources for industry news at the time), while I was having an amazing time with it, spending months -- and eventually years -- trying to conquer all of the game's mountains. Some of its greatest features, like the conceptually simple and intuitive yet tough to master control scheme, the abundance of events and map challenges, the AMAZING visuals which gave each mountain a distinct atmosphere and feel, and its satisfying, deliberate style of gameplay were ignored in these reviews, and instead they described the game's slow pace and controls as a bad thing, allowing some technical issues to obscure their experience of the whole game and painting it as a mediocre experience. Again, thanks for acknowledging some of the great achievements and innovations of this game and giving it some well-earned respect and recognition.

    1080 for the N64 was just sick. fun as hell with great controls and some of the wall characters.

    They're totally right giving #1 to Amped 2! I wonder if it's backward-compat with 360?

    I seriously hope they were joking around when they made this....the fact that SSX Tricky and 3 are not top tow makes no sense whatsoever....SERIOUSLY?!?! 1080... actually let me rephrase that....NO OTHER SNOWBOARDING GAMES COME CLOSE TO SSX....lol wow

    This has to be one of the most insulting Top 5 list ever on X-play! Amped 2? Seriously what were you guys thinking?

    to comment on amped 2's horrible soundtrack, that song is by silverstein, and that song is off of their first album before they went to victory records. once they were signed to victory, they got so much better

    Surprised Snowboard Kids for the N64 didn't make the list. That is my favorite snowboard game!

    I'm surprised Shaun Palmers' Pro Snowboarder didn't make it. Hands Down it is better than the bottom two.
