SSX will have you wanting to shred that snow.
The basic story here is that SSX is a team and they want to prove they are better than ex team mate Griff. This isn't exactly the best selling point for this game but whatever it's functional and it does make so sense even if the idea of conquering 9 death deflying drop is wonderful idea.
So EA makes the game shine in this department. It feels fast, the tricks feel amazing fun, and the mountains ranges each feel different. Now this games main focus is on the nine deadly decents as they call them. Yep they will take some effort and kill to survive seeing as they all require very specific gear. The events fall in to three major catagoies: Race, get you butt down the mountain as fast as possible. Trick, get supa stupid with it like quite litteraly get off your board. Lastly Survive, videos games way of saying Man vs Nature. It's not as fullful fleshed out as previous versions but it's do I guess. The one thing I do hate is EA forgot system multiplayer but added online multiplayer. FOR SHAME EA.
Now the look of the mountains are beautiful with Panadoga sporting destroy plain and vehicles to Serbia with it's ice and industrial feel. I also like the introduction to each new area giving me a look ahead to the madness I'll face with the new area.
Overall definatly wait for this to come down in price. It's not bad by in stretch of the imgaination but you want to wait for it to just in price to about $35 or $30.

Not what i was expecting at all. Heres the problems i had with this game no splitscreen which is no fun short game to beat and one thing that really made me mad was that they charge people 800 microsoft points for an online pass when there was no online really just a ghost of your friend which is stupid i might as well talk to my friend about my time and see if he can beat it im not going to waste like $10 to play more by myself this is BS what ea did!!! But the things i did like were the whole deadly mountains which had different things for each of them. This game is very creative and has decent graphics, but no splitscreen or what so ever multiplayer which just makes a game boring after a while. So for this i rate it a 7 which is coming from an ssx fan
