SSX for ps3, still a solid game, but a litle more freedom would be nice.
3 April 2014
Summary: Overall not a bad game, but it's lost some of the charm that the earlier SSX games had. The lack of being able to choose which character I want to play through the single player game was frustrating. Gameplay was solid, although the lack of some of the old school events was perplexing.
Summary: This game is pretty fun for what it is but it was not what I was expecting. Ssx 3 had the feel of actually going down a mountain. The perfect game to get you over the hump when you can't be out on the mountain yourself. Ssx 2012 just does not have that feel. They sped up the game to the point that you can no longer enjoy the actual mountain. The spins are so fast that you can't see what trick you are doing.
Summary: I played the original SSX games and bought this one because I was feeling nostalgic. Here are a few points on the game: -No split screen multiplayer, which was a major bummer. -Maps are very mountainous and have many many different ways to get to the bottom. -Single player mode has players riding down various challenges and each new area requires a new subtle tweak to the gameplay.
Summary: SSX is a beloved title, it kicked off the PS2 with a much needed hit years ago. The series evolved, SSX Tricky being a good improvement, but it was SSX3 that really cemented the series as something special. While SSX was always extreme to the max, SSX3's vibe was amazing, the irreverent, always stoked DJ, the semi-open worlds and the mix of uptempo and laid back creating a "boarders paradise". SSX for the PS3, while impressive, throws too much out too fast.
Summary: I've enjoyed this version of the game simply for the amped up graphics compared to the older ones. However, I still think Tricky was the most fun. I miss actual staged tracks and races on real courses. The freeform snowboarding is great but some of the old tracks with the various shortcuts and wild rides through the hills and even cities was something I really enjoyed. Also, don't expect a 13 or younger to be able to play online unless you lie about their age.
