SSX (PlayStation 3)


Go big or go home!" Elise Riggs of SSX shouts this from the skies as she catches big air off of some of the tallest mountains in the world. It's a fitting credo, both for Elise and for SSX itself, and presented with those two alternatives, the SSX...

After a relatively long absence (not counting a Wii pit stop), the SSX series is back and brings with it a sense of evolution for snowboarding games. The 32-bit ones were all about attempting to execute the concept with limited technology, while the...

Beyond the music, you've also got incredible sound effects - especially for smashing into stuff. Slamming into a tree or part of the mountain itself always sound brutal. The only part of the audio I didn't like was the voice acting. While there is some...

It's got all the flash of an arcade game, yet looks remarkably well done. Everything is remarkably smooth and impressive going down the mountains, especially when you're pulling off tricks at blistering speeds.

I'd love to see a code to have an unlimited tricky meter, to max out my points. Oh, and one for instant access to all items -- I want me head lamps and I want 'em now.

When you – quite literally – jump into the fray, you find yourself plummeting from a helicopter towards a wide expanse of frozen tundra. Whilst primarily supplying you with a tricks tutorial devoid of the added stimuli present when descending a...

SSX Review


With the modern console era drawing to a close very soon, just about every kind of game has had its moment to shine. Playing brilliant game after brilliant game, I was beginning to need something else, a type of game that the PS3 and 360 was lacking. I...

Being chased down the mountain by an avalanche tas you struggle to pull off tricks.

SSX PS3 Review: still a deadly descent on PlayStation 3


EA's snowboarding franchise has finally gotten off the lift and back on the mountain. See what Luke thought of the tricks and trails in his review.

Long overdue, the return of SSX to consoles is a real treat. Aside from a few poorly designed courses, the game is truly fun to play. The virtually endless amount of content provided with the Global Events and Explore will keep you coming back time and...

Expert review by: Scott Jones (



A classic snowboarding game gets a worthy, if not always better, update.

While World Tour mode can be wrapped up in a brief five hours, the Global Events and RiderNet are supposed to represent the real meat of the game. RiderNet, a clone of Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit’s Autolog feature, keeps track of your performances,...

SSX Review


After an absence of just over 5 years (7 if you don't count SSX Blur on Wii) SSX has returned to our consoles and its packing a few tricks to ensure that it won't get overlooked. As soon as you start up the game you're chucked into the story with an...

Overall, SSX is a terrific game that brings back the spirit of the old games with sharp graphics and new twists. Extreme sports games seemed to die out in around 2005 – 2006, but this could be the start of a whole new phase. SSX not only brings extreme...

SSX Review


High-flying insanity. SSX is the epitome of this phrase, from top to bottom; in this case, from the top of the unbelievably steep and dangerous mountain slope to the bottom, where any normal human would be thankful to be alive. But little about this...
