I'd experienced Cool Boarders 2 first through a demo disc that I got from Playstation.
Previous to that it was the game 2Extreme on a previous demo disc that came when I first got the Playstation. That game was fun, but it was all racing.
Cool Boarders 2 was racing as well but allowed for tricks such as 1080s and the change of outfits. Wasn't quite sure what the end goal of the game was, and still unsure.
