  • Blog Post: SSX

    SSX is a good snowboarding game but not a good SSX game. The reboot of the series tries to take the series in a more serious direction but the game suffers because of it. The gameplay is solid, smooth, and easy to pick up but other parts of the game aren’t as good. There is no spiltscreen but the... More
  • Blog Post: Preserves and respects classic SSX entries while totally blowing them all away.

    Why is SSX a success? Anyone could cite a dozen reasons regarding the excellent craftsmanship and pure. fan pandering execution that EA Canada has delivered with its 2012 opus. The soundtrack is incredible (and yes, can be imported), the presentation is slick, the characters are as iconic as ever, and... More
  • Blog Post: Restart, again, and again, and again, and again...

    This game is no fun. If you enjoy restarting a run every 10-15 seconds, not because you are trying to get the best time, or the best scoring run, but because the game has flung you off into the abyss and there is no way to recover, then you might like this game. I felt like I was getting my head bashed... More
  • Blog Post: Remembering the classics

    SSX is one extremely fun game. That can easily be said. However, one other thing that can be said is that it's one of the most polished and well made snowboarding games ever made. The mechanics work very well and it's always fun to enter the game just to simply quench your thirst of wanting to... More

    graphics are just aweosme.. EA have done a lot of work in this one.. More
  • Blog Post: Best of SSX with a twist

    I have played all of the SSX games from the beginning (Minus the Wii title) This game takes the best of On Tour and jacks up your options of play. Giving you 9 areas surrounding a theme of extreme snowboarding. i.e. trees , Wing suits , Ice axes , Rocks ,Thin air ect. Its probably the most you can stuff... More
  • Blog Post: Playing the demo doesn't count

    Sorry but playing demos of games shouldn't really be a reliable source of information. Playing a complete version of a game should. With that said, I picked this up and playing through it at the same time playing against my friends times/scores. Occasionally we will meet up on a run, which not the... More
  • Blog Post: Good Trip Down Memory lane

    This game is incredibly fun and challenging, the new dual analog control adds a sense of more control and feels natural, there are a few frustrating glitches that come with rewind, but other than that this is the a game that has been missing from the world for a long time and needed to come back. It's... More
  • Blog Post: Great Game

    This franchise needed a reboot and it got the one it deserved. I will admit that while this game has its faults the gameplay and graphics make up for it. The faults are minor though like the ability to not change a song while on a mountain and not being able to team up with a friend in a party. But the... More
  • Blog Post: Great Rebot of a Classic Franchise

    When I heard that this game was coming out boy was I excited. It brought back great memorys of playing SSX 3 on the gamecube. This game is flat out great, it retains the fun old features of previous entries of the franchise but brings it all together with great new ideas. Not to mention the amazing soundtrack... More
  • Blog Post: SSX, As good as we remember?

    Concept: Reboot the classic arcade style, rack up the points, snowboarding game from the Ps2/Xbox era. When announced, people thought that it was going to be too dark, boasting realistic mountains and dark, twisted characters that looked a bit familiar. But after the quick backlash of traditional ssx... More
  • Blog Post: Simple: if you liked the old SSX, you'll probably love this one

    TL;DR version: If you liked the past SSX games and / or like ridiculous extreme sports games like Tony Hawk, try this game out and you'll probably like it. I played the original SSX, Tricky, and 3 extensively. I loved them all, and I love this one. I really don't see how this game is not getting... More
  • Blog Post: Fans of SSX... darn you!!!

    Why did the fans of SSX have to speak up against the realistic and grimacingly dark theme originally concieved for this game!? I feel like this game could've been so much more, now that I see that it was dialed back to cater to the bright arcadey pop fest... I will NOT buy it. I'm sorry, but... More
  • Blog Post: SSX: It's True Review

    I'm so glad that EA made a new SSX game. I played the demo, I loved it. I played the game, I became addicted to it. Not like sky rim addicted. Even though I am a huge fane of the franchise, I gave this game a solid 9 for these reasons. This is the best gameplay i have seen since god of war 3. The... More
  • Blog Post: It Brings Back So Many Memories!

    Story/Career - This game is truly phenomenal when it comes to its story and career mode. It's Team SSX vs. Griff. Team SSX is a group of snowboarders competing against Griff, who is a rider that abandoned Team SSX after getting too cocky. In this mode you explore different mountains with over 150... More
  • Blog Post: Not your grandpa's SSX!

    I have to say, I'm a little dissapointed with Phil's review of this game. The "Survive It" tracks weren't as difficult or frustrating as he was describing them. I found those tracks to be challenging, but pretty addicting! I've been a fan of the SSX series since the very first... More
  • Blog Post: Best Entry in the Series Yet

    As a kid, the only game I played on a daily basis was SSX Tricky. I must have played that game for months until SSX On Tour came out and was not what I was expecting, in terms of design and overall entertainment. When SSX was announced at the VGA's a year ago, I was thrilled to play a longtime favorite... More
  • Blog Post: Fun Regardless of Reviews

    I thought that this is a Great Game. Sure its not like the old PS2 games, but are any Franchise that carried on? Madden, a little, Call of Duty, not even close, so why should SSX try to be like something it didn't want or intend to be. More
  • Blog Post: Read player reviews.

    Worth it. Don't let the reviews slow you down from buying this game. I spent three hours trying to beat one track, and placing geotags. If you enoyed other SSX titles, you will enjoy this one just as much. If your new to the series, welcome aboard and enjoy the run. My review. Concept: What could... More

    Comment on original review - I’m a little thrown back by the review. Seems a bit harsh and almost angry in tone considering the parts of the game which are disliked seemed only to be focused on the difficulty of the new additions of the game (SURVIVE IT). I’m going to say this with a bit... More
