When I put this game on my GameQ I was expecting a kind of Tony Hawk meets snowboarding type of game, and for the most part it is.
But this game is all around horrible. The controls are pretty simple but controlling your guy is not simple. I found myself falling down the hill more than boarding down it. Then when you mix the inability to control where your guy goes with the level's that are almost completely dark it goes from bad to worst. I need a little more than red dots to see where trees are. I just got this game about 3 hours ago and its already in the mailbox to be sent home tomorrow. I wouldn't recomend anyone buying this or even renting it. Only reason im giving this game a 1 is cuz you aren't able to give it a 0.
I had high hopes for this game. The demo was fun and I was tempted to just flat out buy it from Gamefly when I received it. Sadly this is one fo the worst ssx games to date. Wing suits and the rewind feature are stupid. My girlfriend loved Tricky(I think everyhting does) so she was excited to see a new ssx game as well but after about 25 mins of watching me she said "Well this game sucks" and walked out of the room. All the music is dupsteb, which I personally hate, further ruining the game. You cant choose your charater and the survival deadly decent mode is the dumbest idea ever. You cant go fast in fear that you will run into somehting and die and you cant ride slow cause you turn to quick and run into stuff. This game is a huge disappiontment. I eventually got to a race I could not win. I had won every race up til then so I had max credits, so I decided to win this race I need a better board obviously. Well when I go to buy one I either dont have enough credits or the board stats are worst than the board I started with, WHY EVEN INCLUDE BOARDS THAT ARE WORST THAN THE ONE YOU START WITH?!?!? Im afraid that the last of the great ssx series ended with 3, so long SSX, we had great times while it lasted.
This was the first game I have gotten since the NES where I smashed a controller violently into the wall. The races are unfair and I barely eke out a third place, and the trick portions of the game make you score in the millions to even have a chance. I used to be a master at Tony Hawk, I don't understand where the difficulty comes from? It is a waste of time and I am so glad I rented it.
