SSX 3 (PlayStation 2)

 

The thrill of purposely flinging oneself down a mountainside is captured like never before in SSX 3, the third entry in the popular snowboarding series that originally debuted on the PlayStation 2 in 2000. While SSX 3 doesn't fundamentally change the...

SSX is one of the PlayStation 2 launch titles that truly excels in every single category a game can be rated on, to the point that even video game fans who aren't into snowboarding games have to sit up and take notice.

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

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...

Product Specifications

Life begins at the summit where you must overcome everything the mountain throws at you - board it, explore it, and beat it. The larger-than-life mountain is your playground, your racetrack, your launch pad. Discover the mountain's secrets in a variety of areas designed for freeriding, tricks, and racing. You'll seamlessly ride from one awesome area to the next-entering competitions, taking on big challenges, and discovering hidden collectibles. Take on 150 unique challenges as you master the three peaks. Grind billboards, board-press logs, or even hand-plant the fence line. The tricks in SSX 3 are completely blown out. In addition to new combos and three levels of nasty Ubers, you now can extend a combo string forever! Four new rivals - Viggo, Nate, Griff, and the ultra-talented Allegra - join six of your favorite characters from SSX Tricky. Crank up the adrenaline-charged soundtrack of SSX 3, featuring music from the X-Ecutioners, Queens of the Stone Age, Felix Da Housecat, and more. Earn medals and trophies to fill your trophy room, level up your rider's abilities, and rename the peaks as you master them. Along with characters being fully customizable, you can also customize your play list, and much, much more. Spectacular effects, dynamic weather, and natural disasters create an immersive world that brings the mountain to life.
