Not the best SSX installment, but a good game none the less
1 March 2014
Summary: I think the best installments in the SSX franchise are SSX Tricky, and SSX 3. Tricky was just a classic and really had me fall in love with the SSX games, and SSX 3 just took it to a whole other level of amazing!
Summary: SSX has been one of my favorite series since the PS2. For other fans, it focuses less on tricking than Tricky or SSX3, but makes up for it with innovative challenge modes where you have to employ some area-specific mechanic to complete the zone. The music is a blast as usual!
Summary: I just had to get this game when I saw the price dropped. I had SSX 3 for my gamecube and when this game was announced I was excited but I didn't want to spend the full retail sixty dollars on it. But now this game is a steal. It has been updated with freeride and head to head live multiplayer.
Summary: I was a fan of the previous SSX games but I really wasn't sure how this one would pan out. The Good The graphics are great. The locations are cool. The controls are decent once you get used to the new layout. The multiplayer is great and keeps you coming back for more. The music is decent.
Summary: I'm finding this game to be plenty of fun. The new controls, while being _very_ different from the older SSX titles, were easy to adapt to and add a little bit to the tricking, since you can "slide" from one hold to another now. You can change to the old controls if you want or need to.
Summary: The biggest gripe someone can really have about this game is multiplayer, or lack there-of. If you play global events you'll see other people riding past, ghosts, etc., but there is no match-making or split-screen. Beyond that complaints of "lack of control" are absurd.
