EA Canada made great decisions

  • Summary: An excellent game for a launch title. Lots of fireworks, sharp controls, many shortcuts and lots of big air jumps. While more would prefer SSX3, I'm looking forward to the reboot. More details in my video review below...

Dreaming about Fat Air

Michael Lopp, Amazon

  • Summary: For me, the high water mark for any video game was Tetris. While an incredibly simplistic and inane game, the game got into your brain... haunting you. In the middle of the night, you awake amidst distant dreams of L-shaped and T-shaped blocks. Weird. SSX is a universe away from Tetris in terms of technology.

SSX

"electragon", Amazon

  • Summary: This game is what the PS2 was built for. You do not have to be a fan of snowboarding to like this one. The play control is outstanding and once you get used to the how to perform tricks, It is a blast. The graphics showcase the ability of the PS2, with a number of camera views and an incredible replay mode that also has advanced replay mode to show off everything good that you did and edit out the falls and crashes.

  • Excerpt: "...the Playstation2. (PS2). SSX stands for Snowboard Super Cross. We had actually played it at a friend’s house some time back. I was finding it hard to pick a game that my hubby would like, as it is too easy to get drawn into finding something I would prefer! However, I knew this game was a safe bet, and even better, I had liked what I saw of it too. The game was one of the first games launched for the PS2, and retailed for about £44.99 at the time, ...

Super SSX

  • Excerpt: "I first bought this game shortly after buying my PS2. The magazines were all raving about this game and shortly after putting into the PS2 i found out why. The game itself is graphically superb and the gameplay is just as good. In the game there are several different characters and they all have different weaknesses therefore it is quite important that you get a good all round snowboarder. The game itself is set on different courses and the better ...
  • Pros: Gameplay, Graphics

  • Excerpt: "I only recently brought SSX Snowboarding. I brought this because I like snowboarding games, as they are fun to play because you can pull off mad tricks. But when I played SSX I did not realise that you could pull off such crazy tricks. When I first looked at the box I thought, wow what good graphics. When I played I found it hard playing it first time but once I learned how to play it properly I got the hang of it. This game is much harder than ...
  • Pros: Great game play
  • Cons: Not enough tracks too race on

Welcome to SSX

27 April 2001
  • Excerpt: "Welcome to SSX (to SSX, to SSX), and as the start up sounds off you already get the feeling that the PlayStation 2 is going to perform some pretty impressive sound effects over time – already so soon, SSX demonstrates the superb sound quality that the PlayStation 2 really does posses – you should know by now that the ‘Dolby Digital’ sign on the PlayStation 2 does actually stand for something. In this brief paragraph, should ...
  • Pros: Amazing style of gameplay that is very similar to Tony Hawk's 2 .  This is the best PS2 game !
  • Cons: Graphical discrepencies, and getting stuck !

  • Excerpt: "I recently purchased a Playstation 2 for my husband (I couldn't take any more of the whinging!) and along with it purchased SSX: Snowboard Super-cross. The first thing I thought was that the graphics on this game were incredibly good. Not to the extent that it looks like you're watching a DVD, but still good. The main objective is to finish first in the race, but if you do "tricks", like spinning in mid-air and so on, you get points and your adrenaline ...
  • Pros: good graphix, good sound, good courses

This is all about snowboarding, It’s hard to tell from the name, but if you know what it stands for, then you have been enlightened. Snowboarding Super Cross (X) is the games full name; a game which has revolutionised snowboarding games and most importantly given use the first real Playstation 2 ‘Classic’, it’s the first game that’s ...
