For anybody that was interested in a bit more serious and hardcore snowboarding game than Steep, they just put out a big update on all platforms that significantly updates things.
Performance has been improved drastically on the Xbox One, and I'd imagine on the others as well. Smooth, fast framerate, no hitching...not an issue anymore.
The biggest change, though, is that they have added a lot more control to slowing or speeding up your spins. Previously you had to perfectly judge your pre-wound torque and then that was kind of it. That lead to a lot of out of control spins and flips. Now you get a bit more control over it once you launch. This is honestly a night-and-day change, and the fact that they were this responsive to player's complaints is a great sign for the future (to me).
They have also replaced all of their tutorials, added several more and overall teach new users and get them ninto the game much better. There are also some videos you can watch in the game now for additional tips.
I was a little scared to come back to this after having so much fun in Steep, but with this update I think this one can still stand on it's own. Not graphically (a small indie team will just never compete with Ubisoft's multi-studio empire), but in it's own ways.
