Distinctive levels, exciting plot, addictive game play, simple controls
Needs to be elaborated, low quality graphics
iStunt 2 for Android is basically a Shawn White snowboarding game, but instead of being a super cool gold medalist, you're more of a goofball Spicoli type. The play is ridiculous and addictive with a lot of interesting obstacles.
iStunt 2 is a fun snowboarding game with outrageous courses and trippy tricks. The jumps get really good air and the goofy obstacles keep things interesting as the levels progress. The concept is pretty simple: you’re a snowboarder dude on a really rad mountaintop and your objective is to go fast, hit some combos and look cool doing it. The cliffs are extra jaggy, you can switch polarity and snowboard upside down and hit some great combination tricks. Just be sure to duck the saw blades and all that good stuff.
The controls are great; just tilt your gizmo to do back and front flips. Different abilities are added as you go. I really love the gravity of the jumps and intricacy of the controls. There’s a lot of fun to be had here, largely because of the playful graphics, great physics and interesting levels. Yes, the graphics could have been more sophisticated, but they hold true to the goofy play and keep things light. The animation is decent and smooth with no real hangs. This is the kind of game that you play round after round, trying to improve on past errors. It strikes the right balance between fun and intriguing
iStunt 2 is a gamer’s game with quality presentation, polished physics and fully developed levels. This one will entertain for a while.
