Cool Boarders 3 is quite different from the first two games in the series.  Rather than having a focus on wide open racing down a mountain, players ride down very narrow courses.  Racing can get very crowded, so a punching mechanic was added to slow down / knock down other snowboarders.  As with previous games in the franchise, the focus is on performing tricks in various game modes such as boardercross, slalom, and slope style. 


Cool Boarders 3 has an extensive list of characters. They each have their own skill set and have significantly varied appearances. The characters that are available from the start of the game are:
  •  Cliff
  • Summer
  • Flint
  • Sasha
  • Nick
  • Grant
  • Violet
  • Joker
  • Blake
  • Travis
  • Akiko
  • Tadashi
  • Gordon
There are many different secret characters as well. They include:
  • Fast Eddie
  • Mars
  • Kimber
  • Irving
  • Bob
  • Joshua
  • Cool
  • Burg


There are three categories of snowboards in the game: Freestyle, Free ride, and Alpine.  Freestyle boards are used predominantly for tricks meaning they can spin fast, but are generally very slow.  Free ride are the all around boards.  Alpine boards are for pure speed and nothing else.  They have terrible handling and are a very poor choice for tricks.
