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.
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.

Excerpt: The defining SSX moment—whistling toward earth while breakdancing on a wafer of fiberglass as Run DMC sings “It’s tric-KAY!” in the background—is still enjoyable, even 12 years after the original version of the snowboarding game was released.
Summary: A reinvention of the classic action snowboarding franchise, SSX packs adrenaline into every run with compelling characters and heart-pumping adventures as riders battle the most treacherous and diverse mountain ranges on Earth.
Conclusion: SSX is an enjoyable experience that revels in its ability to send you hurtling towards the clouds, cartwheeling as you go. It’s only when that carefree exuberance is impeded that the game disappoints.
Summary: On paper, 'Enemy of the State' is a fairly routine thriller, but Will Smith makes for an incredibly likable protagonist, and director Tony Scott ramps down his usual hyper-kinetic style to create a fun conspiracy flick that cunningly exploits our fears of government surveillance run amok.
