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 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. The game plays like an survival game. Most levels are very difficult and extra equipment in needed in specific areas (wing suit, goggles, heat) to navigate safely.
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. Why. Because its deadly. Maybe when I complete them all, I can play the different runs with a wing suit or a flash light and my review will improve 3.
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. If he has a friend over, they can't play against each other as in the other versions. I didn't notice any specific mention of this in the description before I bought the game.
Summary: Bought this game as I loved Coolboarders for the Playstation but sadly this game does not compare. I don't find it entertaining at all and I love racing games, I think that the difficulty level is a little high and I have already become bored of playing it.
Summary: I understand the need for new games to change direction every now and again so that they don't become stale. However, it's been so long since we had an SSX game I can't help but be disappointed overall with this long overdue game. SSX On tour was such a slick game, really simple in its concept and really stylish in its menu navigation and setup.
Summary: Can't believe they have taken away the 2 player feature...that was the best part of the game...yes you can play online but even that is difficult with having to buy into sessions....wierd. Total let down. Plus having had to use the online code to try it out on multiplayer if I want to give it away its of no use to man nor beast if they want the same as me and play 2 player.
Summary: Its nice to see such a good sports game relaunched for the latest generation of consoles which will hopefully lead to a whole new franchise. Firstly the good. Graphically it is of course superior to the the old PS2 an Xbox versions. The new control system is also nice but for those who prefer the old style control version you can switch to that too. There are a lot of races over 9 different locations and a new deadly descent which adds a tweak to the old genre.
Summary: Having given this game a fair chance to impress me, I can honestly say that it has failed on every level. I don't think that the graphics are that much of an improvement on the previous games and the game play is annoying at best. In my opinion I don't think that this game is any where near as enjoyable as the much acclaimed SSX 3. The lack of jumps and continuously avoiding holes just makes this game boring and frustrating. They do love that rewind button being used.
