Mygamer has posted their review of SBK: Snowboard Kids, giving it a 7 out of 10.
"The truth is, Snowboard Kids DS is not a bad game. But having this game released so soon after Mario Kart DS (especially with the online mode), it is hard to give it a higher score. Had Snowboard Kids been a launch title, this would have been the killer app purchase along with the system. But the game is still entertaining despite being repetitive and hindered in some areas. Once the learning curve has been overcome, players will want to spend time with this game. And adding the tons of unlockables only increases the replay value. In the end, it probably would have been better if Atlus decided to stick with a sequel that was more true to the originals than by starting in a new direction. The gameplay totally worked on N64. Why change it so much? Snowboard Kids isn’t exactly the sequel that fans of the original wanted and will feel a bit disappointed, but perhaps newcomers can appreciate it a little more."
