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. I picked it up because a friend loves the single-player and wanted to try out the multiplayer aspect of the game. That was most of the confusion. It took us a while to figure out that it isn't a typical/expected way of playing.
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 in these games. I really wanted there to be split screen, and I know i should have looked before buying, but overall this seems like itll be good.
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?
Summary: I bought this because I had he same game on my old Xbox and was fun I did not like the fax that it was listed brand new but not in original package and is also single player I have no ides how it compares I have packed it away I haven't been using it
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". The series adds a dose of realism in the otherwise very arcade style gameplay, and it doesn't fit well here.
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. The number one complaint about this game is a new mode called 'Survive It' where you have to brave a natural peril and come out alive. Though this a huge break from the original SSX formula, it's fun to play and offers a sense of variety, which is greatly needed.
Summary: This game is a great nod towards the previous titles in the series. Great graphics, awesome tricks and tracks, cool new stuff like wing suits and head lamps with survival missions, and just about everything i loved and a bit more! HOWEVER, it doesnt really have much replay value because you CANT PLAY OTHER PEOPLE IN REAL TIME!
