"Racdym's cute and vibrant snowboarding-themed racing game is one that's unfairly drowned out by the perpetual, yet understandable noise that surrounds its more popular counterparts, Mario Kart 64 and Diddy Kong Racing. Incorporating a remarkably balanced offensive / defensive power-up system and a nifty stunt system that feeds into the former, the game's only real weakness is its limited selection of tracks and playable characters."

"Ah snowboard kids - a little darkhorse in the N64's multiplayer racing category. It mixed adorable characters with vibrant snowscapes and an immediate sense of fun. Most memorablle was its mischievous multiplayer - there's nothing like screwing your pals over on the slopes, with a well placed power-up as they smack their oversized nose off their capsized snowboard. An enjoyable tongue-in-cheek alternative to Mario Kart 64."
"This was - and still is - one of my all time favorite games. Well designed tracks, well thought-out power-ups and perfect handling, all complimented by a catchy soundtrack! Although the frame rate in 4 player took a hit, it was still amazing fun! Sadly the sequel was never released in Europe, however this N64 fan sourced and Australian PAL import for more of the same!"
"Music is often something that strongly stirs up nostalgia, and here it is no different; evoking memories of long Sunday afternoons spent playing while my best friend happily hummed along in the background. A nicely presented game and surprisingly competent racer with an excellent stunt system. Themed tracks are full of jumps and obstacles, but the game is overall hampered by somewhat limited content."
"This game just has a multitude of memorise for me like how me and my sister would rent it every time and it was great. It had some great characters, balanced items, and a nice soundtrack. Though the tracks are a bit of a one trick pony (which would be alliviated in the sequel) and it was just great just avoid the Ds one."
"Better than Mario Kart 64 for multiplayer imo (and second only to Goldeneye), an immense mix of chaos, drama, last second backstabbing, and coins, all mixed with schnifty tricks. To round it all off, the Battle Royale to get on the ramp at the bottom was a mini-game in itself! Pity the N64 sequel and Japanese exclusive PS1 version were not quite as good."
