Summary: I lost interest practically instantly. The graphics are good and they kept the genuine ssx style trick system, but I was disappointed to find out that I couldn't create my own rider. SSX on Tour is great if you like the type of style I'm talking about.
Summary: I've been a fan and Tricky Gamer since the beginning. I bought the game assuming online play would be a no brainer.....WRONG! The graphics are gorgeous and gameplay of single player is a lot of fun. Opened all the mountains around the globe...fun.... but ... wait for it.....
Summary: I ended up trading the game in. I wanted so badly to like it, but after two months I stopped trying to make myself believe that I was having fun. I feel that the SSX dev team was sincerely committed to making a strong game and I give TB and the rest of the guys credit for strong post-launch support.
Summary: I can't believe this game. Everything that made the previous games fun are gone. The characters are no longer outspoken. Level design is atrocious. Why is there a tree right next to a jump? You literally fly into a tree. There is no multiplayer. Who wants to race against a ghost?
A Disappointment . . . Its EA Sports I should have know better

Summary: I'm not going to give this the full blown soup to nuts review, but lets start with some shopping advice 1. Rent don't own 2. Its colorful and a few of the runs are quite fun (e.g. wing suit), but much of it is played 'in the dark' with no clue regarding the 'line'. Do you ski in the dark often? No.
Summary: I bought this game with lingering memories of SSX Tricky and SSX 3. Those games were built on fun and emphasis on the personalities of the characters. They were wild and crazy and levels were tricked out with an off the wall setup. It was just plain old fun! But this game is nothing of the sort.
Summary: I agree with many other writers. This game has some interesting ideas and cool graphics, but the real fun behind the SSX franchise was two fold: being able to race/trick against your friend sitting right next to you and getting Trickey for prolonged runs. Both are gone.
If you like the SSX games...you will like this one.

Summary: UPDATE 1/2016: I spoke too soon. After a few years of letting it collect dust, I played it today. I soon remembered why I stopped playing it years a ago. Whenever games make you frustrated beyond belief, you wasted your money. This is too difficult to where it isn't fun.
Summary: I used to play SSX Tricky with my son on his old Playstation 2. It was so much fun competing against each other from the starting gate. This new game for xbox only seems to let players compete against each other through online play.
