The thrill of speed.

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

What Need for Speed Underground does for the rice-rocket set, 1080 Avalanche will do for fans of snow-sport racing.You can't beat it's cornea-stripping sense of speed.The streaking blur lines, shaking screen, and rumbling controller all come together to make you think, "Oh snap, I better slow down or I'm gonna die".Don't worry about that, though.The well-designed courses encourage you to tuck and rocket all the way down, with easy-access shortcuts that you won't have to let off the accelerator to nail. Most of the modes work around this all-or-nothing philosophy.Take a second to check out your surroundings, and you won't win the versus-CPU race or get the qualifying times in Gate Challenge(though you can take it easy in the inappropriately named Time Trial and look for hidden gold coins).

The Best: Lots of shortcuts and incredible sense of speed.

The Worst: Few courses

Bye, Bye, Wavebird: Use the normal controller and feel the rumble.
