Summary: This is more arcade game than simulation. It is accessible and doesn't start off too hard - although it quickly gets quite tough to progress. The characters are fun and the tricks almost convince you that you could be good at snowboarding in real life!
Summary: Having never played the original SSX game - I have little knowledge of how EA have improved the game. I do know that the new features on this game are: Surround sound, New Levels, New Players, and new Game Play elements.
