5.0 out of 5 stars SSX at its finest
It is one of the most anticipated games of 2012 and has been given a deserved 9/10 from IGN.

yes, the game is challenging and it gives you that rush you get when you achieve the perfect run, but there are gimmicks and 'features' that vary for each slope that can sometimes seem more of a liability that just ruin the flow of the game, for example, if you want to ride a slope that is at high altitude, you have to use the oxygen gear. this means that as you go down...

5.0 out of 5 stars SSX at its finest, 3 Mar 2012

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: SSX (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
It is one of the most anticipated games of 2012 and has been given a deserved 9/10 from IGN.

Where to start?

Presentation:
The main menu is beautifully presented and the globe feature is a very cool touch. It allows for easy access to every region in the game and looks slick too. The colours blend well and overall it's one of the better menus out there. The characters are displayed like the old games, except this time they update depending on your set chosen outfit for them, neat touch. The Global Events ranking system and scoreboard are presented nicely and it is easy to identify the gold from the bronze.

Graphics:
A huge improvement from the previous games, although that was to be expected as this is a step up to the new generation of consoles. The mountain ranges look beautiful and the colours from the sun and lava are divine. The animations for your character are more realistic and the movement of the snow and ice is more believable than in previous titles.

Gameplay:
There are 3 modes in which to play SSX.
World Tour. You must conquer the 9 Deadly Descents of the world, and to spice things up, it's a race to beat SSX veteran Griff. You must play with every character in the game in order to do this so I suppose it allows you to test them all out and discover which one is your favorite ( of course if you've played the previous games, you already have one!) The new characters do nothing for me and just act as more competition. One downside is you don't feel as attached to them as they rarely speak.
Explore. You are given the World as your playground as you have access to every drop on SSX. Be free and enjoy the tracks to beat your friend's times and scores.
Global Events. In my opinion THE best game mode of the lot. Events are set up by SSX with certain requirements on each track. So, for instance an event can prohibit the use of wing suits and can set a max gear level. This adds difficulty to the game and separates the best from the rest. After each run, your time is posted to the leaderboards, you are ranked from Diamond to Bronze and are given credits relating to where you sit in the standings.
In my opinion, the most disappointing aspect of this new SSX is the lack of split-screen multiplayer. There was nothing better than to play against mates in the same race and on the same TV. This will be sorely missed and puts a downer of a seriously good game.

Music: In the previous titles, the soundtrack was out of this world, with music that fits with the style of the game perfectly. I can tell you that this time around, it certainly doesn't disappoint. The soundtrack is sublime and I find myself singing and tapping along to it. Music in games is a crucial aspect and when it's perfect, it certainly shows. Ea have always been good with music.

Conclusion.:
To sum up, this game is a MUST for SSX fans and for people new to the scene who want a game that is amazingly fun and awesome to play. The huge improvements on graphics and enjoyable, replayable game modes means you will be still be playing this next year. The only bad side to this is the minimal glitching and lack of split screen multiplayer, oh how this game could have been perfect with that. Don't let that leave a bitter taste in your mouth however, as despite that, this game is phenomenal and should be given the credit it deserves. The adrenaline that can be pumped through your body while riding through an avalanche is quite something, and when you have this feeling, you know this game is great.

9.7/10

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun but not the best on the series, 4 Mar 2012

= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: SSX (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
The SSX series has been around for some time now and this is the latest incarnation. With any SSX game there will always be comparisons with SSX Tricky, one of the best games released on the last generation of consoles. That was a game that was simple and extremely effective - any sequels have tried to add to the mix and lost the simplicity. Here a lot is paired back, even more added and what we are left with is a fun game with an effective online expereince. But it lacks the simple enjoyment of Tricky.

The premise of the game in world tour is simple - you are in control of team SSX and are trying to take on the 9 deadly descents ahead of Griff's team. Yes that's right there is a storyline here with cut-scenes of comic book intro's to characters. This might be a nice idea but it really comes across as confused and totally unnecessary. There is also an Explore mode where any of the peaks are open and online modes. The online mode includes races, tricks etc against other opponents. Each event is open for a period of time so you don't always get the instant gratification of winning. There is no offline multiplayer (why? This would be simplicity itself to implement and should be there).

The controls are easy to get used to, although the tutorial didn't really give me enough time to play with the controls. The graphics are improved. But SSX always has been about the gameplay. This is where SSX almost gets it bang on. The diffierent challenges are challenging and the addition of oxygen packs and wing suits adds enough variety to the mix. Its got the 'one more go' feel when you don't quite succeed. It fun to play and whilst not as much fun as Tricky it keeps you involved. However, the sound mix isn't quite there. Play a race and you will hear lots of talking from you and your opponents. But you never quite know who is who. This doesn't give you the feeling of total control you should have and distances you a little from what's going on. The music is as good as ever and Run DMC are there as usual.

SSX is a fun game. Its a leap forward for a series which for too long has been in the shadows of one of its iterations (Tricky - yes I keep mentioning it but it overshadows every other SSX game). But the lack of multiplayer offline and some small niggles mean its not quite as good as it should be. However, too many games these days are not fun...this one is and should be applauded for that.

I've loved the SSX games since the PSone and this version is just as good. It feels quite different to the older games but i still love it. Fast delivery too. Very happy :-)

Just a review to concur with others: if you're looking for a game that is true, over-the-top fun, then this is the game you want.

If you've ever played any SSX games before, this will surely not disappoint. If you haven't been lucky enough to play games from this series already, then here's your chance. SSX takes you all over the world on a variety of mountains, each with different styles, obstacles and challenges. Each track (and there are a lot) feels incredibly well made and crafted for your enjoyment, with several routes to fly down.

If you're expecting a realistic, serious game, then don't bother. But if you're looking for something to pass away hours at a time in an endless series of insane tricks and huge jumps, then this is a game for you.
