Synopsis and Features
Extreme sports always find a way to pump up adrenaline, even if you are just a spectator. With SSX you get to live that excitement as you can snowboard across the biggest and most dangerous mountains known to man. SSX does not follow a rigid story, but it still has a tale to tell. Your teammate, Griff, has thrown you a challenge, saying he will ride the 9 deadly descents across the world and win it all. You have to accept this challenge and try to beat him by conquering the descents.
Developed by EA Canada and published by EA Sports, SSX packs in many new features than were previously unavailable. The game’s single player campaign takes you to different locations across the world. Events in the game include the race event, trick events, Survive It and many more. There are many highlights in the newest SSX. The locations available on the game are expertly and accurately designed as they have been created using real-world NASA topographical data.
SSX features an advanced physics engine that allows you to perform tricks on almost any surface. From the Great Wall of China to the adrenaline-pumping drop at Mount Tasman in New Zealand, you can expect precision detail throughout the game. This allows you to experience what a real SSX rider feels when he slides down the dangerous mountains across the world.
The game promises high replay value as there are hidden tunnels and dangerous canyons to be found in almost every location. The excitement and thrills keep coming as the game features helicopter drops from the mountains of Kilimanjaro and killer avalanches that can wipe you out in seconds.
The game requires you to earn points. You can do it by executing dangerous tricks. Every risk taken in the game earns you a reward. You can learn new tricks as you progress; combine them together to get a combo and earn more points. The points earned unlock cool upgrades that you can add to your character. There are many characters to choose from. Each character has its own special tricks that can help you in winning a difficult event. These include Elise, Mac, Kaori, Psymon, Moby, Zoe, Griff, Ty, Tane and Alex.
The multiplayer option works very differently in the SSX. You compete against the players across the world, but not in real time. You ride a mountain and then post your high score. This is compared against the players across the world, and the best time is posted on the leader board. The multiplayer also includes the ghost option.
The ghost pops up in the game every time you challenge a friend’s or competitor’s score. This is an interesting option as you can see how your competitor rode down the mountain and try new tricks to beat his score. The gameplay modes include the Explore and Global Events. You can track your scores anytime as the game comes with an auto-tracking feature called RiderNet.
SSX features a great soundtrack that features many popular artists such as Foster the People, Run-D.M.C., Skrillex, Two Door Cinema Club, Flux Pavilion, The Hives and many more. You can download updates and demos from Xbox Marketplace.
First Off, Flipkart Rocks ! Almost all my deliveries happen in less than 48 Hrs. This one was a pre order.
Now, on to the game. I received it yesterday and was glued on to my XBOX for 6 Hrs straight (after work !).
Visuals : Pretty top notch though not the best ive come across. But does a great job of maintaining frame reates.
Gameplay : If you are overdosed on FPS games like me, i would HIGHLY recommend that you give this game a try. Even on its own this game is a total blast, but after a long spell of shooters, this is just the thing to get you energised and excited about other types of games. All modes are great, but i especially like the global exploration mode that gives you pretty much a free hand to try whatever you want as long as you have enogh credits (which are not to hard and not too easy to earn). Its practically impossible in most events to get yourself killed (except for the deadly descents) or completely wipe out. Once you get the hang of it, stringing together a flurry of combos is super rewarding and fun as hell ! Controls are pretty intuitive and dont require too much time to get used to.
Value For Money : Now, ive only played this 6 hrs so far, but i can bet this game will keep me glued for many many many more hours because of its wide variety of players/maps/online modes etc. Id say een at 2275/- its worth the price for sure.
In The Box : Game DVD, Manual(tiny), Online Play Code
All in All id say a 4.5/5 rating is easily deserved.
P.S. For those of you who may have a doubt, The PAL version of this game (sold on flipkart), works on NTSC (US-Bought) Consoles. I Have personally tried it out on my friends US XBOX 360.
A long time fan of the SSX series, I have been waiting for this game with much anticipation. Needless to say, it did not disappoint. Beautiful environments, solid design and an array of some of the best tricks ever seen in a sport game, this is amazing. Multiplayer is fun, and an awesome way to rack up huge scores on runs and then challenge the world to beat them. The different types of events are also phenomenal, such as Wingsuiting, Whiteouts, Avalanches etc. Definitely a game worth buying.
I had a little doubts while buying this game as I had not played any SSX game before. But all my doubts were vanished once I put the disc on my PS3.
Great gameplay ,awesome graphics . A game you just can't put down.
The controls are also very intuitive and once you get a hang of them , the game is blast.
The varied locations around the world add a lot of depth to the gameplay.
A must buy for any PS3 or XBOX 360 user for sure
