    While "SSX" offers more arcade-style gameplay, Konami wants to slam you into the snowboarder's world harder than a botched Frontside Indy.
  2. "SSX" is a zany, fun and arcadey snowboard stunt-racer, and Konami's ESPN X Games Snowboarding is a realistic and beautifully presented simulator, one that will probably have massive appeal to hardcore snowboarders.

    This one made me work quite a bit, and the last time I checked, work isn't synonymous with fun.
  4. Even snowboarding fans will find the game's steep learning curve frustrating more than anything else.
  5. To speak plainly the action is DULL with a pace which only ever reaches the giddy heights of ''sedate'' ensuring that you'll soon share your character''s apparent lethargy - hardly befitting of the game''s extreme-sport pretensions.
  6. Those who may be looking for another "SSX" will certainly be disappointed by X-Games' sim-styled approach, but those who are looking for a true-to-life snowboarding experience will be overjoyed.
  7. If somehow, you are able to master the terrible control, perhaps having fun with ESPN is a possibility, though I doubt it.

    This is for the real life snowboarders, its more realistic. You won't be pulling an FS Quadruple Misty 1930 Experimental to Double Front This is for the real life snowboarders, its more realistic. You won't be pulling an FS Quadruple Misty 1930 Experimental to Double Front Flip Mutations like "SSX," expect a hard time trying to pull a double misty, but it is much more realalistic with real life locations and riders.
