Seems like all I was doing was pushing every button and every direction while my boarder was in the air! No real defining pattern to make anything I wanted to happen, happen! Good graphics and music! Just too confusing with the controls!

I'm SO glad that I rented this game. The graphics are great! The game play is fun. But the story-line might as well be non existent. Because of this, it starts to feel like you are doing the same thing over and over and over again, especially in the survival modes. The game is really fun, but it doesn't have much replay value and I got bored with it after about 6 - 10 hours of gameplay. I think if they do make a sequel, they should focus on actually giving the game a story! Enough of that, the controls are smooth, there were very few glitches. For the most part the game was very fluid and fun to watch. The different locations that you conquer are simply beautiful. Overall 7/10 simply because it didn't hold my interest. I thought the game was AWESOME the first day and then didn't play if after the second day! Also the store was annoying because you can only view 4 items per category and I will not buy something just so that something else will pop up. I never found anything worth buying so I had 300,000+ in game dollars with nothing to spend it on... FAIL!
Well.. thats my 2 cents. Hope it helps. Rent, yes. Buy, no.
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.
