Manufacturer's Description

SSX Blur is everything you expect from the franchise, delivered in a totally unexpected way. Revolutionary controls take full advantage of the Wii’s potential by putting you in total command of your skier or rider, on-the-ground and in-the-air, by translating every motion you make into the skills that create mountain legends. One of your hands controls you as you tear down the mountain; the other hand unleashes your virtually unlimited array of aerial manoeuvres. This is the soul of SSX, remixed, re-energized, and fully realised.

For those of you who have never played a SSX game, SSX is a arcade style snowboarding game, it will have you racing down lush snow filled mountains pulling off the most rediculus tricks that are not even remotely possible in real life to earn boost and go even faster.

I LOVE this game! I have played it nonstop since I bought it. I love everything about it...the style, the graphics, the soundtrack, and (gasp) the controls. I'll admit that I hated the controls at first (more on that later) but it all feels like second nature now...even the uber tricks.

As I write this review, the game has only been out for a couple of days. I find it interesting that on day 1, everybody was complaining about how the controls were "unresponsive" or "didn't register" or "just plain didn't work." Then on day 2 and 3, people were starting to get it and sing its praises. If you don't believe me, visit different gamer forums and see for yourself.

I admit that I also HATED the controls at first. The uber tricks just felt like a bad experiment, and everything else felt touchy and inconsistent. I stuck with it (cuz I shelled out $50!) and was happy to see results after an hour or two. There is definitely a learning curve, but it feels great once you get it. Now everything just feels natural and "right."

For those that don't know, uber tricks are these flashy tricks that can only be pulled off by moving the Wii remote in specific directions/patterns. You have to be fairly precise in a small window of time. The big hint here is that the remote and nunchuk have accelerometers in them, so you have to move your ENTIRE HAND in the shape of the pattern, rather than "drawing" it with the tip of the remote. Once I got this, I was pulling uber tricks off more than 90% of the time.

Let's start out with the overall oppinion, superb game, definately worth adding to your Wii library, especially seeing as the choices aren't superb at the moment. If you've got the money no problem, don't read further, just buy it.

For the rest, I will be comparing this game mainly to the 3rd game, as it was the only one I owned. I'm going to go over this a section at a time, starting with

Visuals:

Artisticly this is an average game, nothing in comparison to the artistry of Zelda, but what were you expecting from a snowboarding game? The theme is very consistant, feels like a bubbly colourful adventure, kind of like a more child friendly version of the Tricky theme.

Technically it's pretty impressive, everything is Wiid up as you'd expect, the snow effect isn't quite as pretty as SSX3's but it's definately impressive looking, more than enough to be enjoyable. Framerate is more than acceptable, with only an occasional slowdown.

Sound:

Excellent, I kinda miss the EA trax from SSX3 but the sound fits in much better with the game, and a couple of these completely originally composed tracks you really get into, I'd like a couple as MP3s!

Controls:

The most important bit right? Yes they work, very well, really really well! But there's no way you'll think that unless you play for 2 hours. Everyone's right, you just won't get it for some time.

I was a little worried when I first got SSX Blur as I had heard bad things about the game in a few reviews mainly relating to the control system. So when I first put it into my Wii I didn't really know what to expect from the game. Well all can say is that it was great fun to play. The controls, while difficult to master, are very good, not quite perfect yet but I will come onto that later. Carving feels excellent and natural and the standard tricks like spins flips etc are easy to pull off and feel rewarding. The Ubertricks are much harder to pull off. Some Ubertricks are simple enough to get right but others are very difficult and will take a lot of practice, there is an area where you can practice drawing the tricks which helps alot. The single player game is long enough to keep you entertained for ages and all 3 of the mountains have a lot of reply value especially if you want to unlock everything. The events are all varied and all fun (with on exception) and you can also freeride down the mountain which is great.

However here is the reason I gave this game 4 stars instead of the 5 it proabably could have got and that is the Slalom event. The controls really don't work in these events as you cannot turn tight enough to get round the gates which are far too close together. I found it easiest to turn off the motion controls for this event and do it all with the analogue stick so you keep it slow and steady round the gates.

Overall I would this game is a great example of the Wii's motion senseing abilities and if you like winter sports and are looking for an challenging game with plenty to keep you interested you should definatly give this game a try.
