  1. The most exhilarating ride down the slopes you'll have this generation.
  2. The game hits its stride late, but when it does, it hits it big. There's a lot of fun here for the patient gamer.
  3. This is an incredibly slick package, and not just on the surface, either. On Tour tightens up a lot of the underlying course designs and gameplay mechanics, and it quickens the pace without betraying the fundamentals of SSX.
  4. Offers enough newness for a purchase, but fans that have been there from the beginning might begin to wonder when the series will take that next step in evolution.
  5. The new sketchbook graphic style in the menus and an awesome (and very customizable) soundtrack top off an unforgettable gameplay experience. [Dec 2005, p.111]

    It's a great game in the same way its predecessor -- "SSX 3" -- was a great game. It is not, however, a great game in the same way "SSX Tricky" was before that -- that is to say, it won't go on to be one of the greats.
  7. Dear Tricky, we miss you. [Jan 2006, p.91]

    Although sharing many similarities with its precursor, and many improvements as well, such as skiing and Ai skiers, the game lacks the epic, clean cut professional feel that SSX 3 had. The Ai can constantly mess up your runs by crashing into you, and the game just feels too dirty and "punk" to stand up to hype.

    Overall, while still a decent title with improved graphics, it is at most a decent entry into the ssx franchise, but not really what we were expecting.
