A few words come to my head when I think of SSX. Fun, ridiculous, and tricky. This game isn't for the type of people who need to play an RPG or FPS this is for the people who just want to have fun. Although many people will dislike this game because they are bad ( i have found this with my friends ). As soon as they got good they all went and bought it. I love every part of this game; the breathtaking scenery, jaw dropping tricks, and fluid gameplay to name a few. The soundtrack in this game is terrific, ( i get so hype when Houdini by Foster the People comes on) . I really recommend this game to anyone who wants to have fun.
I didn't like the SSX series before, due to the fact that it was WAY too easy. After looking at the good reviews (except for Game Informer), I decided, "Fine, I will buy it." I won't regret it. It gave me a bigger challenge, and everything is amazing in this game. I wish I could snowboard... But I don't wanna break a leg, so, yeah. Anyway, the big stand-out is the gameplay. Everything is where it needs to be, and the tricks I use are awesome. Everything else is sick awesome, so BUY THIS GAME RIGHT NOW!!!!!
not as good as ssx tricky.
this ssx is pretty bad in more ways then one,because it is so hard on most levels,the gameplay is bad and the graphics are kind of good.
Why, some ask.
Don't get me wrong, this game is good. It has everything I've been waiting for since I played SSX Tricky on my old Xbox, but the game gets boring fast. Once you complete the races and what not, your pretty much done. What's there to do next? Play against other on Xbox Live, but if you are going to buy this to play online, don't. It's a waste, it was fun for a couple hours and maybe even fun when you got a few friends around and just want to play something other than FPS games. I think it's a good game, but for a hardcore gamer and the casual gamer, this game can be boring at times.
Depends on who you are...
This is a hard game to review. While the graphics are amazing and the maps are good the gameplay can be frustrating. In some levels it is almost pitch black so you just keep running into trees and stuff. In some levels, there are holes in the ground everywhere and you fall in easily. In case you don't know, if you make a mistake you rewind the rider. This is mainly used when you fall off a cliff. The problem with that is that if you fall very far then it will take time to rewind you back and during that time the other riders pull ahead. They are not rewinded so in certain races, you have to restart the drop completely when you fall.There are very fun levels where you glide with a wing suit. The game itself has multi player on Xbox live so that's good.There is an enormous variety of tricks you can perform. There are so many you just end up mashing the buttons when you're in the air. Oh well. If you want a game where you relax and have fun, this is not the game you want. Some levels are challenging and frustrating.Decent game overall.
CANNOT STOP PLAYING
I bought this because it was only 30 bucks now. I cannot believe they would make the price lower. It is the most highly addicting game in the series of any Trick game (like skate, tony hawk, other SSX games, 1080, ect.). Must buy for fans of action and racing and anything pretty much. If the price ever gets lower then you MUST BUY THIS. i am going upstairs to play it right now
very addicting;better then the others.
i loved ssx tricky on the xbox,i played that game for years.now i just bought the newest one on the xbox 360,which is amazing!!!!.the game has even more insane tricks and even an air glider,which i thought was a great idea because you can glide in air then do tricks.overall,an amazing addition to the ssx universe.
Best Snowboarding game to hit the 360!
Although it takes awhile to get used to what you can do in this game which makes people drop this game, its an amazing game. With creative peak designs followed by intensive gameplay techniques like the formality of tricks and the use of gear to help you conquer the 9 deadly descents (well theres a bonus one at the end :p) it's definitely worth playing. The soundtrack is very well picked out with the likes of Foster The People and Skrillex. Although the soundtrack mainly consist of electronic pop there are also some rap and rock tunes. The graphics are what you'd expect from many EA games, very sharp. But with the lack of the multiplayer simulation experience (they added a 3-2-1 GO! event recently which is the only thing you'll get and it doesn't support mic) this game isn't for everyone. But if you want an impressive challenge story mode game or just wanna free ride to get some Geotags for some major cash towards your equipment to help beat your friends records, this game is definitely the way to go!
not that good
its ok but when u get to griff u face him like 18 times in the story and then griff is the final boss. hes way to hard. if u are a fan of other ssx games. DO NOT BUY IT.
Game doesnt last more than a week waste of money
When I got SSX, I was running out of interest in my other games and wanted something new. SSX was great for about a day, then I realized how much of a mistake it was to spend $50 on it. DON"T BUY
