So I got this game thinking it would be the best ssx yet what with the flying spuirel suit and realistic landscape. I was right. But one of the greatest things about the old ssx games was custimization! from astraunaut suits to knight suits to gorilla head they had the collest stuff. this game didnt change anything but the colors of outfits. BUT this game was great overall with kool music and amazing mountain landscapes. i dont have xbox live so im guessing i missed out on some kool stuff. im still having trouble getting 36 mil points on the himalayas and thats what makes ssx great is the challenge to get insane scores. overall 9/10
Game is cool and brings ya back to the good old days ( if ur old enough that is) easy controls for the most part and graphics are smooth. Game has some depth to it and has some time to be put into it. Only thing that mad me kinda mad was that some races u had to be close to perfect to win and got frustrating at times

SSX lets you board real life mountain ranges letting boarders feel a little more immersed in the game. The graphics, of course, are beautiful and trick animations are crisp and jaw dropping. In addition there's "gear" for each of the 9 deadly decents such as armor, solar powered heat suit, pulse goggles, and a wing suit to make it more than a snowboarding game. The downside I see is that if you're familiar with the last SSX title, there's very limited customization of snowboarders. You were able to change glove and goggle style and color. Each character has a basic style but they let you play around a little bit. Not here. There's outfits you can buy to simply change color of clothes, or if you want to spend massive credits for one of the suits with perks. But this was the biggest disappointment. There's so much you can do to customize a snowboard or choose color schemes you want without spending all your creds since it costs 15,000 for each color change. The gameplay is good with an added rewind feature for when you make a mistake. You will find yourself sometimes pushing a button to do a trick only to have nothing happen because of it's sluggish controls coming out of the rewind. Good 'ol EA is making you pay for an online pass of you have it through gamefly. Definitely buy if you will be playing online with friends. If not, solid rent.
