Great addition to the SSX franchise, though no local multiplayer
30 April 2014
Summary: Those who follow the SSX franchise will find a solid, incrementally better game than the previous-gen console versions, with one major drawback - no local multiplayer, which for me was a huge part of the initial draw of the game for me and my friends in the original SSX and SSX Tricky days on PS2.
Summary: If you liked previous SSX games, this one will be right up your alley, in general gameplay. This iteration was heavily adapted for online play, and it loses a LOT if you're not an XBL Gold subscriber.
Summary: I actually found the game a little confusing, which is weird for a snowboarding game, as I would have assumed there isn't much to going down mountains of snow avoiding things and doing tricks.
Summary: I love games like this where you do extreme sports and such. (games like skate, ssx, and ATV) However, so many of these games focus on having such an online presence its annoying. Ssx seems like it will provide me with many hours of fun, but I dont like how online multiplayer has become such a focus...
Summary: I've played better games and wanted to try SSX out and the game is not that difficult and after awhile does get rather boring. I nephew who enjoys snow boarding said he'd rather do the real thing than waste his time playing this game.
Summary: I like this game very much it have very intense but at times easy gameplay the storty could have have a little better work on but its a all about the tricks so it really don't matter. Why i gave SSX this rating? I really wish they allow local multiplayer
Summary: I was very excited to get this when it was released but not even a month later I'd found it at the bottom of the pile of games I have. It just couldn't keep my interest like SSX 3 did, unfortunately. It's good, and VERY much a better game than the Wii one, but it really didn't have replay value.
Summary: I am not sure what the game devs were thinking. Too many of the tracks have insta-death areas. That is the opposite of fun. And then there's boarding in the dark with no visibility, or in a snow storm with white-out conditions? Yup, that means more insta-death. Ugh.
SSX is a mixed clash or realism and arcade style gameplay

Summary: The Good: Fast arcade style gameplay, some of the gear is fun to use, new trick stick is easy to use The Bad: Random haphazard level design, weak customization, deadly descents are not really all that fun, blurry low resolution visuals SSX brings back the series with a "reboot".
Summary: Finally. A true SSX sequel. It's been years since SSX Tricky and SSX 3. Though this reboot isn't as over-the-top as Tricky and doesn't offer the open-mountain exploration of 3, it's still enjoyable.
