This is review is going to be short and sweet so I'm just gonna give my opinion and be done.
So I got got this game expecting a lot more. The single player gets boring very fast (very repetitive). And for the online to work you have to buy an online pass (thanks a lot EA) and I'm just not willing to do that. This game feels like it was sort of rushed and the online pass is just the icing on the cake. It's not a terrible game but I prefer getting a full game when I buy/rent one.
It also doesn't feel like the old SSX game at all. That was a big let down as well.

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.
