Title: SSX   Developer: EA Sports   Type: Snowboard Racing
Absolute PlayStation2


"Based on the new extreme sport Boardercross, SSX combines high-speed snowboard racing with insane big air tricks on what is best described as an exaggerated snow covered motocross track. In this knock out style of competition, resplendent with jumps, steep turns, tunnels, and hidden shortcut sections, six racers soar down the hill, but only the first one down wins."

Badboy 3223  "Ssx Is A Great Snowboarding Game, Alot Better Than The Cool Boarders Game's. The Graphics Are Great, The Sound Is Fantastic, The Gameplay Is Awsome!
The Tracks Are Long. There Isnt A Track That Takes Less Than A Minute To The End Of It.
And The Moves Are Good To.
You Also Get Huge Air In This Game.

But See I Bought This Game Before Ssx Tricky Was Even Out! So If You Dont Have Ssx I Sugest Geting Ssx Tricky Enstead Of Ssx Because Ssx Tricky Is Basically The Same Game With A Few New Tracks And Some New Characters But With Alot Cool Tricks In The Game. Even Though The Tricks Are Compleetly Unrealistic On Some Tricks.

Ssx, Ssx Trick Both Are Great Snowboarding Games. Get One!"

Chris Norman (tiff71)  "Snowboarding Games???

I Hate Them!!!

Well That Was Until I Got My Playstation 2 Back In November 2000 And When I Picked Up The Lovely Black Beast There Was Ssx On Display, Demoing Away So I Had A Quick Go.

Wow!!! All I Said, I Must Have This Game.

Being One Of The First Release Titles For The Ps2 You Would Think That 9 Months Later It Will Look A Bit Dated? Nope! I Played It The Other Night To Shave A Few Milli-seconds Of Some Times.

So I'll Just Have To Say This. Ea Has Taken The Rules Of Sportsmen/women That You Get With Proper Games Like Fifa Or Nhl And Just Bent Them A Little, Well Not A Little, A Whole Lot!!

These Games Come Out On There New Title Range Called Ea Big. Gone Are The Dynamic Physics That You Would Get When Going Down The Slopes At Break-neck Speed And In Are The Wild, Unreal Moves And Tricks That No Normal Person Can Perform.

Little Bits And Bobs Within The Game Make It A Joy To Come Back And Play. It's Just Simple Controls And Gameplay That Any Age Or Gaming Style Conscious Person (like Myself) Will Enjoy For A Long Time

Last Year I Would Have Given It 95%, But With Ssx Tricky Coming Out Very Soon With More Moves, New Style Of Playing, More Levels And Characters, This Game Will Become A Budget Classic For The Ps2 In The Coming Months"

Cam Insull  "Great Graphics Give A Real Sensation Of Speed.
Get Your Jump Button(x) Sussed And Massive Amounts Of Air Make It Possible To Do Some Pretty Radical Trix.

Great Sound Tracks (aphrodite - Drop Top Caddie Rocks!!)

Too Bad The Number Of Available Tracks Is Pretty Limited, Although Rider/board/outfit Choices Are Extensive.

Of The Ps2 Games I've Played So Far, I Would Definately Recommend Adding This One (and Of Course Gt3) To Your Ps2 Collection."

This game has graphics that were never thought possible on this console

Makes little use of the CD capacity and audio hardware
Functional sounds that compliment the on-screen action

No fun to play, control is bad, gameplay lacks ideas
Offers moderate enjoyment but lacks a reason to play regularly
Quality title that has all the features you would expect
Top-notch title with nearly flawless gameplay
Little room for improvement and the best game of its type
Introduces new gameplay aspects not thought possible for this console

Wouldn't even buy for your worst enemy

Recommended purchase which should offer a weeks enjoyment
Has the potential to still be played regularly weeks from now
This will remain a popular game in your collection for months
You will enjoy playing this game occasionally even years from now
