Mario and the rest race against each other for the gold cup in each class. Underwater and air gliding returns, and now, there's zero gravity. This game has 48 race tracks in total. 8 more than Mario Kart: Super Circuit.
This is a sequel to the "SSX" fantasy snowboarding game. "Tricky" implements new advances on the Playstation 2 and the graphics are better. The levels are pretty good and there are a wide range of characters to choose from.
I enjoyed the game when I played it, but couldn't help but grow tired of it after a while. The soundtrack is really grating and the large voice cast - Macy Gray, David Arquette, Billy Zane - purposely stand out, which becomes kind of irritating also.
You can perform many advanced (and ridiculous) snowboarding tricks (in fact, that's the basic goal of the game), build stats, etc. There are also many shortcuts on the courses so when you are playing with two people, being a veteran of the game certainly helps.
Overall, a good game - but not one I'd want to buy.
