Summary: Alot of people put this game down due to the whole new style of it, but I think they have done an awesome job at creating such a great game. Creating your own character and completing various "shred" challenges to work your way up the ranks is great, and there are alot of new various missions to complete that make this game so much fun.

Summary: Having bought a PS2 solely to play SSX, I was secretly looking forward to a faster, better version of SSX 3 coming out. However, I couldn't have been more wrong. SSX On Tour is in some ways, quite unexpected. It is very different to the rest of the series, but at the same time, very similar. I wasn't keen at first because you don't go through a season of pure racing and freestyling.
Summary: The latest in the series brings more ludicrous fun to the table, whilst again managing to convey a genuine sense of adrenalin. Although it's arcade action rather than sim, the feel of movement does convey real snowboarding to some degree, and the timing element of tricks and jumps has some basis to it as well. Graphics are again excellent, and the multitude of challenges in tour mode keeps things interesting.
Excerpt: For someone whose only encounter with snow is the awful black slushy stuff we get on the streets these days I must admit to being pleasantly surprised at how stylish and enjoyable this game has proved to be. In the tour mode you get to create your own player and customise the features that will serve you best in the events ahead of you.
Summary: Although SSX is not the most accurate verison of snowboarding simulations, it is the funnest to play. I'm often deeply emerged, often for hours, in fast, action-packed races or adventurous freestyle races that are fun to play. On the other hand users may suggest that the game too fustrating as users are often reqired to take part in 'shred' challenges.
