SSX Blur

 

The Wii's motion centered control scheme has been previewed to make gaming that much more intuitive, accessible, and fun. In some of the early games of the system, it has definitely succeeded, while in some, it has been more frustrating than intuitive....

SSX Blur is a fantastic first entry for the series on the Wii. EA has done a lights-out job, and for SSX fans, this is a great sign of awesome things to come. The game is flat-out hard, and again, it will take you quite some time to master. When you...

SSX Blur

 

The early success of the Wii can largely be attributed to the fact that it is very easy to pick up and play. Nintendo's motion sensing controller has allowed developers to create intuitive control schemes that are very easy to learn. With SSX Blur,...

Overall:SSX Blur could have been an excellent game. Instead, its uber tricks make it a cumbersome affair that most of the Wii’s target audience will not enjoy at all. For big fans of the series or those who love very difficult games, rent it and see if...

New controls

Blur takes place on a huge, three peaked mountain. Career Mode, the meat and potatoes of Blur, allows you to pick an unlocked character and carve your way up the rankings. The game places you on the apex of Peak 1 with immediate access to five tracks....

SSX Blur (Wii) Review

 

EA's signature snow-sports franchise gets a motion-control facelift.

My biggest hope is that SSX Blur 2 is on the way and continues the level of innovation that this title brought to the table. With so many sports gaming franchises repeating themselves to the extent of eating their own tails, EA Sports took the bull by...

SSX Blur review for the WII

 

Twelve friends... a cabin in the mountains... and a deadly secret...

Collectibles add exploration and replay; Pelting friends with snowballs; An ambitious control scheme

That doesn't respond well; Weak look, thin content; Redundant, shallow interface

SSX Blur

 

I've always been a fan of Snowboarding games. From 1080 to Cool Boarders, I have tried just about all of them. The whole point of EA's SSX franchise was letting the average Joe enjoy impossible tricks with just a push of a button or flick of the stick....

Unique control system is very rewarding once you figure it out, there's a lot of depth for the hardcore gamers, when you pull of the huge combo, you'll feel like you really earned it

Steep learning curve, especially if you're trying to access everything this game has to offer, stiff neck and shoulders from being extremely tense while playing, small inconsistencies in the controls that seem to be a product of the Wii Console more...

SSX Blur Review

 

A snowboarding game with great Wii-controls really doesn't do enough to wow you.

Overall SSX Blur is an interesting first attempt for the series on the Wii. The game for me was just ok - it didn't have the same sort of wow factor I had with previous games in the series - it just felt like more of the same except with a new...

SSX Blur

 

When the Wii's motion-sensing control was first introduced Nintendo made a big deal out of how it was going to make gaming easier, different and better. Apparently Nintendo had not seen SSX Blur yet, because if anything the Wii's control makes this...

Instead of making controlling your snowboarder easier, the Wii's new motion-sensing controls have made SSX much harder than it needs to be. What once was one of the best extreme sports franchises has been reduced to one of the most disappointing games...

SSX Blur Game Review - Nintendo Wii

 

Great use of the Wii controller (for the most part); multiplayer mode offers tons of replay value; great presentation

Controls are extremely frustrating in later parts of the game; ubertricks are really hard to execute

Product Specifications

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 maneuvers. This is the soul of SSX, remixed, re-energized, and fully realized.
