After downloading the demo I knew this was the type of game you could spend a lot of time with, just mastering the tricks and combos into the millions and millions is a controle scheme that takes time and is fun to get used to playing. The game itself is great, with the google earth like menu traveling around the world to mountains and choosing the runs or drops. Online is great, race friends or trick out with friends anytime you want to, even favorite and rate the runs and mountains to quick travel there.
Beautiful graphics... simply put. Looks beautiful at 1080p on my 47" and it runs at 50-60fps constantly as well. Really a huge step up from Amped or Shaun White Snowboarding.
This is the "Skate" of the Snowboard world of gaming now. SSX is a keeper for all types of fans. It may be mindless fun at times, but to become a top player and master the controls and game are the opposite of mindless.
I dont like sports games, and ive never played an ssx before, having said that its truly a blast. It gives you an urge to beat your friends and try to score as much points as possible. With a sick soundtrack and tons of maps, you wont be finding yourself sending the game back soon. Its hard to point out why i believe its awesome, the game videos make it look decent, but when your actually playing it, well its just plain fun, give it a try!
