While my love of all things snowboarding in the world of video games has waned over the last decade or so with memories of the SSX series slowly fading away, I always hold out hope the genre will rise up again to the mainstream. Foolish? Maybe, but that is how big of an impact things like SSX and Amped had on games at one point. Plus, skateboarding has all but had a renaissance in recent times, and games like Riders Republic are dabbling in all forms of “extreme” sports, so why can’t snowboarding also make a comeback? With Shredders now on Game Pass, it felt like the right time to put this Shredders review together and see if it’s the right game for the moment.
