    Pros: A song for dot, racing, and trick system
    Cons: The race engine falls a little flat at times

    Summary: Inside of a block buster was the last copy of this great game within miles. Sure, a lot of the video game stores carried tricky. But, what I wanted was something within a range. Looking at the games there and back at myself in the store mirror I made ... read more

  • SSX - Don't believe the hype

    Jun 29, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice graphics and sound
    Cons: Colission detection errors, bad controls, too much junk on the maps

    Summary: SSX is a snowboard racing game from EA Sports. It has received all kinds of great reviews and praise, but I honestly donít see what all the fuss is about. SSX tries to be the snowboarding answer to the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series of games, but fails ... read more

    Pros: graphics, sounds, playability
    Cons: time loss, price

    Summary: EA have surprised me in every way possible to make SSX one of the best games available on the PS2. This is not my usual type of game and refused to believe my friends rantings about it until one dark and stormy night we gathered round the ... read more

    Pros: good graphics, characters with personality, several modes of play, not realistic
    Cons: lame background music, requires substantial amount of time to improve characters greatly, not realistic

    Pros: It was made for a good console.
    Cons: Poor graphics, over-rated, overall weak.

    Summary: When I first purchased my Playstation 2, I was thrilled to get SSX. I read all the magazines and internet articles I could about all the release games, and all gave SSX the highest scores. I give SSX 2 thumbs down. First off, visually, ... read more

    Pros: Well thought-out courses, great music, awesome graphics.
    Cons: Annoying announcer, More characters & courses would be nice.

    Summary: I'm not a big fan of so called "X-games" but this really made me eat my words. I usually check out a review source on the web before I go out and buy games. Even though it was receiving rave reviews, I did not want to risk spending my hard earned money ... read more

  • EA Sports gets BIG this year...

    Oct 11, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A breath of fresh air for recently lackluster snowboarding titles.
    Cons: Having to wait for SSX Tricky

    Summary: With less than stellar snowboarding games the past few years, a company needed to set an example of greatness. EA Sports is that company, SSX is the game. EA Sports BIG has created a game that is just that, bigger and better than all snowboarding games ... read more

    Pros: Brilliant graphics, good fun
    Cons: sound

    Sep 22, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quality graphics, Great characters, Superb tracks... Nearly everything
    Cons: Commentary can become irritating... Losing a race?

    Summary: This was the first game I bought for my Playstation 2, and I really wish I hadn't, because it set my expectations 'way' too high. The game doesn't really have much depth, but no sports games do! Where it probably fairs better than any other ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Addictively fun, great graphics
    Cons: Not much

    Summary: My first PS2 game was Gran Turismo 3 (I bought the GT3 PS2 bundle). I can't stop playing Gran Turismo 3, except to play SSX. SSX is quite possibly the most addictive snowboarding game around. EA has put together a game of complete balance ... read more

    Pros: graphics, gameplay, HUGE courses
    Cons: controls

    Summary: Compared to the number of people who have ever actually snowboarded, it's amazing how many games there are based on the sport. The Saturn had Steep Slope Sliders. The Dreamcast has Rippin' Riders. The N64 produced the excellent 1080 Snowboarding. The PSX ... read more
