SSX

True achievements

  • Conclusion: Although the ghost feature is fun to race against, it is still more fun to race against another person on the mountain instead of their ghostly apparition. SSX has been gone for a while and now players can see why.

SSX

GamesRadar
25 June 2012
  • Excerpt: During our first couple of hours with it, our relationship with SSX was as much of a rollercoaster as the frozen rails – manmade and not – upon which we rode. We say “rollercoaster,” but that’s not strictly accurate.
  • Pros: When it all comes together, it's exhilarating in a way no other series is, Between the two main game modes, SSX is vast, 100% completion will be a meaty challenge
  • Cons: Lacks previous games' free-flowing exploration, The first hour or so will kick your ass, It's occasionally hard for the wrong reasons

  • Excerpt: Flying off a mountain at insane speeds and meanwhile turning and swirling your body and board in the most ridiculous curves. It’s definitely something else than shooting hostiles or playing a game of tennis. But is the new SSX good as promotion for snowboarding?

  • Excerpt: Wing-suits are great! Sorry, we’ve jumped ahead a bit there, but it just kind of blurted out. It’s true though, wing-suits are easily the best feature of this new SSX and, not having played other entries in the series, we’ll just have to assume they’re new to this one.

SSX Review

PlayDevil
27 March 2012
  • Summary: " SSX " is a great playing game that purists and fans will love, despite the odd mis-step. The credit issues and lack of competitive multiplayer are definitely negatives, but this is the biggest, best and most complete snowboarding game since SSX last hit major consoles with SSX Tricky.

Calm Down Tom
19 March 2012
  • Summary: It has been almost six years since the last true SSX game. A lot has changed since then. Extreme sports games are nowhere near as popular as they used to be and Tony Hawk hasn’t even released a game in a good few years.

17 March 2012
  • Excerpt: It's been years since Electronic Arts (EA) dropped a new SSX title (the last was 2007's Wii-exclusive SSX Blur ), but the snowboarding franchise has returned in a big way with the recent release of SSX .
  • Pros: Logging in to see you've earned credits when friends failed to beat your scores.
  • Cons: Dropping into another bottomless pit a hundred yards from the finish line.

There’s a reason it’s called SSsex

Quarter to Three
15 March 2012
  • Excerpt: I tend to lump skateboarding and snowboarding games into the same category, not just because you stand on a board. You work your way along a long shallow learning curve in which your thumbs make cool things happen: flips, twists, booger grab reverse wind kickback hippie grinds.
