Summary: I've been a diehard SSX fan since the early days on PS2, and picked this up thinking it was a long-awaited continuation of the series. Wrong. As with lots of other Wii ports, sub-par graphics and clunky motion controls ruined a game that was great on other platforms. Now you can get your SSX fix with the latest 2012 release; don't waste your time with this one unless you find it in a bargain bin, and only own a Wii.
Summary: Whatever you do, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! I have been a fan of the SSX series since the beginning and this game almost destroyed the series for me and was clearly a marketing ploy to jump on the Wii bandwagon. The controls are not explained very well (even in the tutorial) and are incredibly hard to actually do. Maybe that's simply a Wii-Remote flaw, but most ubertricks are impossible to do in time before you character lands the jump.
Summary: Let me begin by saying I loved SSX on other systems, namely Gamecube. This has bad, unresponsive controls. I like games that are easy to pick up & play-don't have too much time to spend learning controls. And, I have been gaming for years; but, the graphics are only ok.
Summary: I dont get the negative reviews. This is like SSX 3 but better and that game got great reviews. I do not like how you initially have to control your character, using the numchuck and that joy stick together, however there is an option to just use the control stick to control your character which makes the game a lot more fun in my opinion. If you liked SSX 3 or SSX tricky this game should satisfy you.
Summary: I bought my wife a Wii and this was one of the must-have games for her, since she loves the SSX series. We knew to expect a 'greatest hits' of tracks and characters from the series, along with a Wii-specific control system. What could go wrong? SSX 3 was by far the best game of the series. Everything was just right. Previous games were harder to control, and SSX On Tour just somehow missed being as much fun. This game mainly replicates SSX 3, but badly.
Summary: This game is a combination of races from SSX3 and SSX World Tour. It contains no new events to my knowledge. The only thing thats new is the use of the Wii-mote, which is much more difficult to use for Uber Tricks than either the Dualshock or the Xbox1 controller. Not a bad game, but lacking in innovation. I cant wait for SSX4 or a real SSX sequel.
Summary: I know people like this game for its previous titles but this game is barely playable. Sometimes there is just no rhyme or reason for the controls. You can just wave the control around but you really have no idea what you are doing. Difficult at best to get your character to actually do what you want them to do.
Summary: When I wrote this review, I was a disgruntled little brat that was distraught that him favorite video game series was ruined by the Wii. I still hold by the fact that the Wii has infact ruined the SSX series, but I am modifying the review to be informative, not just a rant. The SSX series is a great series that I have loved since SSX Tricky, but it was a mistake to port the game from a single handheld controller based game to a Wii controller based game.
