For a totally free, space-efficient program, this snowboarding game gives you a pretty killer ride. Freeride Earth requires no real installation process to speak of; you simply extract all the game files to a folder, then click the EXE to begin playing. Since this program only provides one mountain on which to shred, your goal is simply to achieve the highest score possible by using the space bar and the arrow keys to pull off jumps, spins, and tricks. You start with a very short amount of time on the clock, so you also must take care to collect the bright blue tokens that will extend your ride. The minimal help files don't explain how many points a certain trick scores, so you'll probably want to experiment. The 3D graphics may not knock hard-core gamers out cold, but most other folks will find them more than suitable. Our biggest gripe about Freeride Earth is its total lack of features; you can't even turn off the sound effects or choose to play with your mouse. Besides that, we can't complain much about this free game and think it makes a surprisingly addictive time killer.

Developer's Description

Snowboard around beautiful 3D mountains in this great simulation.

An atomic war has come at last. A very long night is here to stay, and it surely will be followed by an eternal winter. The entire civilization is either wiped out or under duress. But for the mad boarder, it's the coolest thing that could ever happen. In Freeride Earth, you don't have anything to do except enjoy snowboarding across an entire planet. So hop on your board and enjoy practicing tricks.

This little charmer is just what players need to wind down from a long hard day. The randomly generated 3D mountains are as beautiful and soothing as the sound of cutting fresh powder. However, we think the real charm of this snowboarding sim is that it's not made by a major developer and it's wide open for updates and gameplay add-ons.
