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.

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.

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.

There have been a lot of imposters trying to corner the snowboarding market these past years, most of them going for realism over fun, but SSX is back and EA Sports continues to prove that if you want the most insane, over-the-top racing and death-defying stunts on the planet (or at least in nine locations on the planet) then you need look no further than SSX.

For an ex-ownder of SSX Tricky on the PS2, it's great to own this game, and it is just as fun as the previous game, but includes Skiing this time as well. If you still own an Xbox 360 or have kids that own one, they will enjoy this game!

It is a very fun game to play with good mechanics and a good story. The only thing is that it does not take long to complete and you can only play the same levels again, but still I recommend it for any sport loving gamer. :)

ive had hours of fun with this game however i dont feel its as good as the original that i remember from years ago, but that does not detract from the quality of the graphics though, but i do find that some goals are not attainable

Finally jumped into SSX on the Xbox 360 after loving SSX on Tour on the Gamecube!
An addictive game, SSX challenges any gaming snowboarder from the beginner to the expert. With many different game modes including freeskate and races.
The only downside is that SSX does not have an offline multiplayer mode. However, it is just as fun to challenge your friends online.
Apart from the lack of offline multiplayer, SSX is a must buy, even for snowboard game beginners.
