Summary: SSX has had a strong running on the previous generation of consoles. From their sleek look to the quirkiness of the detailed characters the series has introduced many to the joy of hitting the slopes with a board strapped to your feet. However, in an attempt to reach a larger audience, the developers have incorporated the use of skis in the series and making the title obsolete. This is a minor gripe, even though the skis have virtually the same control scheme.
Summary: I've played the original ssx game on and off for the last 3 years and love it. This 2005 follow on is my opinion BETTER than the 2003 original. You get a real rush blasting down the slopes and off massive ramps as the new boost is just the business. The new slopes are really well thought out and you just get addicted.
Excerpt: "...have owned all the previous ssx snowboarding games, and without doubt this is the best one of all of them! With all the good points carried forward from the past games with lots of new exciting areas to explore. A very good all round game in my opinion. One of the only downsides to this game is that it can get quite difficult(maybe im just not very good at it!) but despite that i still manage to enjoy myseld everytime i play it. The multiplayer options ...
Pros: very fun game
Cons: can get quite difficult near the end of the career mode
Excerpt: "SSX On Tour is a the 4th game in the SSX snowboarding series. I bought this for around £15 from Play.com. I like snowboarding games although this was my first game in the SSX series, Gameplay: The game consists of two main sections, "The Tour" which is the main "career" mode, and then "Quick Play" which is for multiplayer gaming and also quick races. In The Tour you compete in two main types of events "medals" which are competitions in race or ...
Pros: Fun gameplay, great soundtrack, good graphics
Summary: I have played most of the SSX games(except SSX tricky) and when i bought SSX 3 i was suprised how good it was.It was brilliant.I bought this a couple of days ago and its great.The Tour Mode is brilliant and also the addition of Ski's is a nice feature. But SSX on Tour is not as good as SSX 3.Its not HUGELY worse just slightly. If you have SSX 3 then get this.If not then get SSX 3 first and seeing as there both so cheap get SSX on tour afterwards.
Summary: the game is very fun as you can change clothes and even add wings to them good music range and realistic but ive never completed the game as it takes so long and its the same thig over and over again but definatly a game worth having!
Summary: As my title suggests I don't think SSX on Tour shaped up to it's predecessor in any way. However, there are some good qualities about it which weren't on the older games.For example, being able to choose your own character and customise them yourself,instead of playing as one of the given pros.Another being the fact you can now ski or snowboard down the mountain. Overall I thought it was OK,but I'd recommend you buy SSX 3 instead.
Summary: This is gonna be more of an SSX review I've just got this game for christmas, and I've been very impressed with it so far. However, in terms of surpassing SSX3, it failed. They both have their good and bad points and are very different games, but it didn't quite take over as my favourite game SSX3 is an overall brilliant game. I was stuck to it ever since I got it. The graphics are brilliant and smooth - no glitches there.
Summary: The SSX games are my only real foray into PS2 and I love 'em. This game is great value for money - there's loads of events. I'm still not sure whether it's better than SSX3 or not, though. I like the fact that you create your own character and dress him/her, do hair/make up, board or ski. The graphics are great; you have to work up the charts and build up hype by winning events, beating records and catching the camera icons scattered around the courses.
