SSX 3 - PS2 review at Thunderbolt Games


Synergy - it's a beautiful word, like candy for the tongue. Perhaps it's the inflection at the end that makes is so delectable, or its inspired letter formation. Nevertheless, it stands out among the English Language as a word of character and...

SSX 3 on Playstation 2



This game does have its flaws, though. While the mountain is extremely varied, there is a sense of redundancy as you ride down it. I guess since SSX 3 is a lot more realistic then previous games, some of the trails and such feel a bit alike. This is a...

It's never too late for some SSX action.

SSX's online debut is one with a mixed result. While I love the fact that it's been included, it still has a few faults. First of all, it's only one-on-one, even on broadband. And secondly, even with the 2-player hindrance, my experiences with dial-up...

In the early days of the PS2, one of the first true hits that really showed off the power of the new platform was a snowboarding title by EA's newest studio, EA Sports BIG, SSX. Although EA Sports had made its living off making most of its sports...

Great mix of favorite boarders with appealing new characters ; The most rockin’ soundtrack this side of GTA: Vice City ; One of the most detailed single mountains ever realized in a videogame ; Super-solid challenge factor; you won’t beat this game...

Virtually nothing that’s more than nitpicking; a few more boarders to play through as is the only improvement I can think of, and I’d probably say that no matter how many there were

EA Sports BIG proves the first PS2-generation snowboarding title is still the king of the mountain.

Now I'm not one to throw around such buzz phrases as “Game of the Year” and I've never had to gall to dare say “Game of the Console” but dear readers after almost 50 hours of SSX 3 I must say that it is one of the greatest games I have ever played and...

EA Sports BIG's third trip down the mountain is the best snowboarding title ever created.

For as successful as the PlayStation 2 has been, the system's launch games were a bit of disappointment. There wasn't anything close to a Mario 64 blockbuster, instead of getting Soul Calibur it got a got a rehashed Tekken, and of course, Sony's first...

In the end, fans of the SSX series will not be disappointed with the new direction taken in SSX 3, and for this reason, they probably already own this title. For those who haven’t played an SSX game before, you really owe it to yourself to try SSX 3....

We dissect EA Canada's snowboarding masterpiece in one of the most detailed reviews on the web.

When it comes down to it, SSX 3 is just an incredibly well presented game. The attempt at creating a full-blown ride-anywhere mountain are marred by some wiggy reset zones, and the online mode should have been better thought out, but the overall...

I have never gotten into snowboarding; not because the whole idea of speeding down a mountain slope while performing dazzling tricks doesn't sound alluring, but rather due to the fact that my real-life experiences in the sport consist of me falling...

 The system with the boost meter and uber tricks is still intact, while uber grinds and "super ubers" add more depth to the rather complex game mechanics. Other tweaks to the controls include a handplant move, which comes in handy during the...

The original SSX was one of the most respected titles when the Playstation 2 was released in 2000. For once, there was a snowboarding game that could not only give 1080 a run for it's money, it could beat it. Then along came SSX's big brother, SSX...

Finally, to all those that want to wait until the game drops to 20 bucks, you don't know what you're missing. This game is a lot more than just a minor revamp of Tricky. And for those that don't want to try it because it's a "sports" game, you're nuts....

SSX 3 Review for the PS2


She'll be falling down the mountain...

Conquer the Mountain!; Great graphics and sound; Good new moves; Speed, speed, speed

No ability to create character; Generally weak, if any, online play

And if you ask me, things are going just peachy for EA Big's star pupil. SSX 3 is the best in the series so far and is an easy recommendation for vets and newbies alike. Though the gameplay is still mostly the same as it ever was, the awesome new...
