About
20 March 2015
  • Summary: The new SSX is a game of severe ups and downs, and that isn't meant to be a pun. Level design inconsistencies and an insistence on sticking to a "Deadly Descents" (the original subtitle of this game) gimmick that just isn't all that fun and more often than not leaves you frustrated.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • Conclusion: At the end of the run, very solid venture. I understand people's hesitation towards change. These strange, ominous "Deadly Descents" had some fans asking where the direction of the franchise was going. I will say that the series is based on action sports, and the lifeblood of them is progression.

  • Excerpt: Someone, somewhere decided that the loveable, over-the-top SSX formula was in dire need of a hardcore makeover. Nevermind the tried-and-true snowboarding racing and tricking off the size of normal mountains; little SSX needed piercings, tattoos, and a deadly element.
  • Pros: + Beautifully remodeled with plenty of colorful, vibrant visuals., + Enormous mountains that give races a sense of danger.
  • Cons: ? Hey, where’d all the other snowboarding games go?
