  • Blog Post: A Great Game with Great Flaws

    SSX is one of those games that breaks your heart. The previews looked great, and within a few hours of playing I knew that it was great. Which makes the glaring mistakes and missed opportunities hurt all the more. With the amount of fun I have had with it, I wish I could rate it higher. But reviews are... More
  • Blog Post: Awesome Reality Defying Trix JUST GOT REAL!

    I enjoy snowboarding games a lot, particularly because I suffer from such bad balancing skills that I can't do it on the slopes myself. So when I first read about this game I was thrilled. I've been a longtime SSX fan, particularly for all the flashy trix, but I had always wanted an added touch... 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: A New Mechanic that Falls Short

    When I first heard about SSX's reboot, I was excited to see how the new survival mechanic would be implemented in the game. But, I thought it would be a little part of the story mode, not a third of the whole game like it was. The story pits you, Team SSX, against Team Griff, in a race to see who... More

  • Blog Post: An Awesome Game.

    SSX is one of the best games I have played this year. I loved everything about the game from it's graphics to it's controls and game mechanics. Also it's soundtrack compliments the game well. One of the best parts about SSX is it's game mechanics. Doing tons of flips, turns, grabs and... 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: Worth the price, but not the promised game

    SSX isa true successor to SSX 3, considering "SSX: On Tour" and "SSX: Blur" weren't very appreciated. The game starts with you being thrust into two tutorials which explained the game to you. EA does a great job of slowly raising the difficulty throughout the game. As i went on... More
  • Blog Post: A worthy addition to the series

    The announcement of a new SSX game reminded a lot of us of the fun we'd had over the years, tearing down snowy mountains in the previous titles. Sadly, actually playing the new SSX also serves to remind us, by comparison, how much fun we had with the previous games. Concept: Bring back the iconic... 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: 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: 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: 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
