‎Shredders is a lovely return to the snow slopes, updating the experience seen in Amped to our days. Its semi-open world, trials, snow stars and licensed brands will delight fans of this sport. If you're not a fan, maybe this isn't your game, but don't hesitate to give it a try on Xbox Game Pass.‎

‎Shredders is a game with very good intentions, it aims to be a love letter to a sport like snowboarding, but it does not get to excite. And it is not because of its lack of shortcomings, but rather because of a lack of virtues. It becomes a fun game, but it's also very flat and monotonous. Unfortunately, it does not shine with its own light within 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.

Given it’s dropping straight onto Game Pass, and by offering a multiplayer experience straight out of the box, there’s every reason Shredders could be one of the most enduring indie games of 2022, especially as FoamPunch continues to refine what genuinely is a compelling, brilliant experience with a nod to all the snowboard gaming greats that came before it.

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.

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

Shredders is a fun, straightforward dive into the world of snowboarding, with mostly great controls and movements, and plenty of real-world influences. Some rough edges and often poor performance are all that hold this title back.

Shredders fills the void left behind by SSX and Amped with its beautiful visuals, easy-to-pick-up nature, and a story that knows (and pokes fun of) the limitations brought by the indie space. While the game might be a bit jank in some areas, it's still a decent experience that's easy to recommend for Game Pass owners.

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.

Shredders, in an analogous sense, is more Session than it is Skate. It's hard to see the odd story resonating with anybody, the generously proportioned terrains are sparsely populated and, as a package, it feels feature-poor. This is all despite it feeling super confident in its controls and systems. It's a small slam from which the developer can dust themselves off, but it's far from a wipeout.

I’m not an avid snowboarder by any means, but I’ve found Shredders to be a delight, a quick and rewarding, pick-up-and-play title that I can jump into for some quick runs after bashing my head against Elden Ring for far too long. It’s full of fun, humour and generally a delight to play.

Frustratingly this doesn't let up nearly enough as it should though, because the meat and potatoes of the experience; the exhilaration of just riding, is lost a bit to its gimmicky content-creator-driven lean and goalset.

Despite being fun, Shredders feels like an "introduction" to a bigger game that never comes.

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.

In our view, Shredders is an ideal Xbox Game Pass game. It's a game most players will get a few hours of enjoyment from, complete the missions and grab some achievements, and then move on. The dedicated fans will keep coming back for the fluid and rewarding gameplay, and maybe to get perfect scores on all those missions. If you go into it expecting a big-budget rival to the likes of SSX and Amped, you might be disappointed with what you find, but taken at face value, Shredders is a fun time and a worthy addition to the sports library on Game Pass.

If you’re a snowboarding fan, there’s a good chance you’ll get some hours of quality entertainment out of Shredders, especially if you manage to master its trick system. That’s a pretty big if though, as there’s some frustration involved. Still, available at a budget price, and included in Game Pass, it’s a decent new addition to a genre that’s pretty underrepresented these days, and with a low barrier to entry. It’s just a shame it isn’t a little more polished, and welcoming.

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.

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