Product Description

Platform: PLAYSTATION 3

Manufacturer's Description

A modern day reinvention of one of the most critically acclaimed arcade franchises of all-time, EA SPORTS™ SSX will allow players to experience the franchise’s signature fun and adrenaline-packed gameplay across iconic mountain ranges all over the world.

Using NASA topographical satellite data, we’ve mapped out a Massive World for players to explore. Throughout nine expansive mountain ranges, SSX packs reality-defying gameplay into every run letting players Race, Trick, and Survive down huge open mountains. In addition, Explore, Global Events and RiderNet - SSX’s recommendation engine - headline an online feature set that will revolutionize social competition for gamers, making it fun and easy to compete with friends on your schedule.

Key Features:

  • Conquer the Planet's Mountains— From Antarctica to Africa and the Himalayas to the Alps, players will drop into nine of the most iconic mountains ranges on planet earth. Using NASA topographical data and our proprietary Mountain Man tool, each of these iconic mountain ranges have then been exaggerated to deliver a gameplay experience that is true to SSX
  • Race it —Way beyond your typical racing experience, SSX allows players to race down huge open mountains with multiple elevations and no invisible walls to hem the player in.
  • Trick it—Defying the laws of reality, SSX will enable players to pull off tricks that would make even the world’s greatest snowboarders cringe. Forget a 1260° Double Mctwist, in SSX if you still have both feet strapped to the board while you’re spinning 200 feet in the air then you’re still a beginner. With a refined trick system and levels designed to deliver trick opportunities at every turn, filling your Tricky meter is a must
  • Survive it — A new gameplay element inspired by big mountain snowboarding, SSX asks players to survive some of the most treacherous descents on earth. Challenged by the power of Mother Nature, players will have to survive avalanches, white outs, freezing cold temperatures and much more, as they make their way down these natural boss battles.
  • Advanced Physics—Harnessing the power of the current generation of consoles, SSX introduces a revolutionary physics engine that will allow players to ride and trick off almost anything in the environment, unrestricted by invisible walls and barriers.
  • Upgradeable Gear —From boards of varying speeds to wing suits that let you glide for longer distances, upgrade your gear to ride faster, trick higher and survive longer
  • Characters Old and New —Favorite characters, as selected by the fans, make their return to SSX along with some new faces that will be joining the franchise. Returning characters include: Elise, Kaori, Mac, Psymon, Moby and Zoe.
  • Explore - Explore every drop in the massive world of SSX. Set your fastest time on Race Drops, post your highest score in Trick Drops, and descend as far down the mountain as you can in Survival Drops. In addition to a traditional leaderboard showing friends’ times to beat, ghosts of your friends’ runs are also visible in your world showing you exactly how they tackled a run. Challenge your friends’ ghosts or let your own ghost chalk up wins and losses, while you’re away from your console.
  • Global Events - Constant global competition at every drop point the SSX universe against real people in real-time. Events can last for a single run, hours, or even days, with your friends and closest competitors phasing in and out of your immediate surroundings at all times. Post a time and move up or down the leaderboard even after you turn off your console.
  • RiderNet - Inspired by the incredible Autolog engine from Need for Speed, RiderNet will be the players guide through the world of SSX. It will allow players to ‘like’ their favorite drops, recommend new drops and friends to the player, point players to ghosts that are beating their scores and much more.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is no Tricky or SSX3 13 Mar 2012
By DR J
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
SSX Tricky and SSX3 were great games. This is not. It isn't a bad game as such but it does give the impression that it has not been properly thought through. As other reviewers have said, the HUD is a mess and the unbelievably dumb positioning of the timer, which pops up right in front of you blocking your view, give the impression that the game wasn't properly tested before release. Perhaps a patch could fix these gross errors?

There is a huge number of tracks, but the problem is that not many of them are what you would call fun. Many are very similar, despite apparently being in different countries and many of them are just too difficult to have a meaningful race on. I'm not against difficulty per se, but the number of blind landings which are actually cliff edges and hidden crevasses make some of the tracks a lottery and more frustrating than fun; especially when coupled with the poor steering.

The addition of ice axes and oxygen and wing suits etc just look like gimmicks. Unnecessary gimmicks at that.

My biggest gripe though is with the genius at EA who decided that no one would want a 2 player mode. Unbelievable! Yes, you can race on line against `friends' (ie strangers mostly) but why not against a real friend or family member in your own living room?

UPDATE

After ploughing through this game and getting my platinum this is going back on the shelf and will, very likely, never get played again. I don't have a huge collection of PS3 games but this is one of the least enjoyable games I've ever played and after Tricky and SSX3 a real disappointment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great in parts 7 Mar 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I have always been a huge fan of SSX and have been looking forward to this version since it was announced,Graphically this looks great and runs very smooth,
i will say character personalization is pretty poor but thats ok because you never get to see what others look like online...however styling your own racer would have been far better than predefined outfits for each racer.I would much rather create a character and build them from start to finish but SSX has a story and characters,not just any story a really bad and dull story.Apparently we have to own every mountain before Griff.WOW edge of the seat stuff there...Shame Griff is awful and i beat him first time on every challenge.

Come on EA surely you have been creating games long enough to get rid of weak background stories and concentrate on gaming.

The online features im quite happy with,i actually prefer live mountains with whoevers playing it and a ghost of record holders.
I also like the fact you can play your own music.

The tracks range from great to just stupid,yes you can get down them all but snowboarding is meant to be fun and a lot of the tracks are made to be so dangerous that they are not fun to play,i love a challenge in gaming so its not that they are hard... its that they are frustrating and when you do go off the edge there is no respawn(that would have been ok).Noooooo they have a rewind button that i am forever pressing by accident when i want to grind tree trunks ect....

3.0 out of 5 stars The Good the Bad and the Ugly 12 Mar 2012
By Paul A
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Had SSX for for a week now, I've put quite a few hours into it and feel I've got to review it to give anybody thinking of buying it a heads up. I've always been a fan of the original series so this was a must buy for me, if you are hoping for a similar SSX experience you may be dissapointed with this latest installment, don't get me wrong there are a lot of positives for this game most of which have been covered by other reviews. The Good, I love the graphics the tracks are great well most of them you can add your own playlist which is nice as the music is dire, lots of variety in the differnt ranges so everyone should find something to enjoy. The Bad, no true multiplayer no splitscreen no voicechat, ridernet is OK but it's repetitive half the fun of the original was splitscreen play that's what made the game for me. The Ugly, who thought it was a great idea to put the distance behind or ahead of your opponent right in the middle of the screen the last place you want it when trying to see the track ahead the whole display layout is bad a real lack of thought gone into it, the control system is just as bad very hard unless you have nimble fingers and quick reflexes. I'm not going to say it's a total loss but it could have been great. If you never played the original you will not be dissapointed, if you did well you may find it dosen't quite match your expectations.

1.0 out of 5 stars If you liked SSX3 or SSX Trickey....... 12 Oct 2013
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Then do not buy this. Uncontrollable crap with none of the fun of any of the previous SSX games. The only positive thing I can say about this trash is that the disk makes a pretty ashtray.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best yet 9 Sep 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this game the day it came out on 2nd March and have played it every day since. Probably around 4 hours a day. That's a lot of playing. You could say I like this game a lot. I've played all the SSX games as they have been released and this is my favourite so far. Why is it so good? Depth of gameplay. The game is deep. There's a lot to learn and discover. The tracks are mazes with masses of detail, shortcuts and hidden features. There's over 150 drops in this game ranging from easy to nigh-on impossible. Add to that a massive itinerary of boards, accessories and modifications.
Ice axes, body armour, headlamps and wingsuits all play their part. The wingsuit has been a controversial addition to SSX but in my opinion its a wonderful feature that takes SSX into new areas and creates a whole new dimension to the game. Don't like the wingsuit? Then don't play it. You can still play 95% of the courses without it. Once you get into it though - its addictive and sublime.
A lot of people complain about the difficulty of some of the drops. Yes - there are extreme challenges within SSX 2012. The pits and chasms can be frustrating. To a fairweather player who just wants a quick blast some of the drops may be too much. For me though I like them. I learned the courses one by one. I know where all the pits lurk now and its pretty easy to avoid them. The courses are designed in such a way that persistent play is rewarded.
The handling of the riders, the tricking and the racing is smooth and fast. And pretty forgiving in my opinion too. Landing uber tricks has never been easier. You aren't penalised that hard for little mistakes.
There's loads more I could go on about - but really I want to go back to playing the game. There's the 3-2-1-Go online head to head racing in real time.
