In the end, I found myself having a good time with Shredders, but there’s still plenty to iron out in its design before it has the chance to be remembered as one of the great snowboarding titles. Its inclusion in Game Pass both on Xbox and PC makes it easy enough to drop in and out as various updates hit, and I’m curious to see where the game will ultimately land.

Shredders may not conjure up images of SSX and the like. Still, it presents the sport of snowboarding in a fun, accessible, and realistic fashion that is extremely enjoyable in small doses.

Shredders is not as challenging as I was expecting, and whilst this limits its overall longevity, it's accessible, laid back and fun to play.

While Shredders is definitely a great homage to snowboarding, it feels restrained and I can’t decide if it’s the budget, the developers, or the lack of length in missions that are what’s holding it back from entering into truly great territory. The incredibly beautiful snowfields help this world come to life. And while the characters can look a little generic, the voice work from professional snowboarders does help make up for this (sometimes). The developers at FoamPunch have delivered an open world with intuitive controls and a killer soundtrack that will make you want to keep coming back. Shredders is undoubtedly a solid snowboarding simulation. Hopefully the next attempt can clean up the pain points to deliver the whole package.

There is not much to say about Shredders, which is not a satisfying experience. The art direction is already aging when the game is released, the animations are not very good, the missions are only sequences of courses via teleportations and the cinematics of the scenario seem to be present only to extend the life of the title. Making a successful sports and simulation game is not an easy task and I have the impression that for the first project of the FoamPunch studio it was perhaps too ambitious. If you want to make up your mind, I strongly advise you to go through an Xbox Game Pass subscription rather than paying forty dollars.

I ended up feeling the same way about Shredders in comparison to SSX as I do with Tony Hawk and Skate. I prefer the fast-paced arcade action of the former, but the latter is a great time as well. I’d love to see the core gameplay and vibe of Shredders with a little more budget put into it, as there’s something special hidden underneath all the snow.

‎Shredders is a game designed for snowboard lovers, which includes good and fun mechanics to perform the tests. Unfortunately, it falls short on everything else, causing the loss of interest very quickly.‎

Needlessly complex controls dragging down a robust system, a storyline uninterested in upping the ante to wacky hijinks or otherwise, and a world that fails to acknowledge your existence, Shredders performs self-sabotage by seemingly not performing at all.

Foam Punch hit that sweet spot between arcade and simulation, so snowboarding in Shredders feels really great. However, there are technical and longevity issues.

Shredders is an enjoyable game if you temper your expectations. The campaign is quite good and comes in at just the right length while also providing some incentive to return and complete all of the challenges for each mission. Free roam mode is fine if you can forgive some of the performance hitches and inability to do much with others in a structured setting. The controls are good, but you'll lament the game momentarily forgetting about its momentum system. The relaxed feeling of snowboarding without restrictions makes things enjoyable. It makes for a perfect game for Xbox Game Pass and a decent purchase for those starved for a purely snowboarding-focused game.

In Shredders we will find a game that is halfway between a snowboard simulation and a game in the purest retro style with short missions. If we focus purely on playing, we will find an outstanding experience in the world of snowboarding and that knows how to amuse and entertain like few others simply by playing goat from the top of the mountain.

Shredders is a peculiar work full of contradictions. If its narrative, crazy, hilarious and embellished by the participation of some snow stars is as fresh as snow, his good gameplay (inspired by Steep) must clash with a disastrous technical performance. Still a game worth trying, especially on Game Pass.

There’s still room for a big snowboarding game in today’s video game landscape, but Shredders isn’t able to fill it. While it looks nice when you’re not moving, issues with performance, controls, mission design, voice acting, story, nearly every aspect of this game is flawed. So value your time and wait for the next title in the genre.

Shredders is a breath of chilly mountain air in the face of snowboarding fans everywhere. If you miss the genre's heyday of Cool Boarders, 1080 Snowboarding, and Amped, then it's definitely time to strap on a new pair of digital bindings.

Shredders is described by the creators as a love letter from snowboarders for snowboarders and certainly can not be denied, although it also has some unpleasant consequences.

A love letter to the world of snowboarding, Shredders is a passion project that mostly sticks the landing.

Shredders is an ambitious indie game, characterized by some too many edges but with the great quality of offering a snowboarding game that conveys passion for this discipline. The extremely complex control system can lead to some frustration, but those who have the patience to overcome a few too many failures will be rewarded with satisfaction and a lot of fun.
