    I didn't like this game a bit. It's badly designed, weak on tricks, obvious, slow, and light years behind the best, or even the most average extreme sports games.
  2. A complete mess. Virtually every technical and stylistic aspect of the game is either shoddily handled or feels somehow incomplete.
  3. Aside from the various terrains and many skiers to choose from, this title has the right idea of combining an extreme sports attitude with just the right touch of fantasy.
  4. The environments are huge, but they don't totally make up for Jonny's lack of multiplayer. [Apr 2002, p.77]

    The visuals and sounds keep up with the pace, although you may be too busy with the controller to notice.
  6. There is no sense of speed. The skiers run down the slopes at a snails pace, and one can hardly tell the difference between 10 mph and 55 mph.
  7. Mad Trix is basically "SSX" minus the flair, physics, snowboards, zany characters and fun.
  8. The whole damn experience is like watching your dad perform Who Let the Dogs Out? – you want it out of your line of sight as quickly as possible. [Mar 2002, p.135]
  9. "Mad air, mad attitude, mad trix" is what 3DO say. "Mad to part with forty notes" is what we riposte.
  10. Your magnetic skis do more than just hug the rails when you’re grinding along – they magically suck you toward rails if you’re in the vicinity. It’s ridiculous. [Mar 2002, p.108]
  11. No sensation of speed in a snowboarding videogame = no fun!
  12. The addictiveness of Jonny Moseley Mad Trix is outweighed by the poor design and tepid game play.
  13. With only a superb soundtrack as its savior, Mad Trix ends up being a sad mix of bad control, horrible sound effects and awkward camera angles.
  14. One of the worst action-sports games available for the PS2...Every area of the game, from the poor audio/visual presentation to the shoddy gameplay, is disappointing.

    This is absolutely the greatest game of all time. And yes, it was a travesty that Jonny was robbed for his Dinner Roll.

    First Jonny had to put up with friggen incompetent Olympic judges who couldn't appreciate his killer Dinner Roll, and now he has to First Jonny had to put up with friggen incompetent Olympic judges who couldn't appreciate his killer Dinner Roll, and now he has to suffer through a crappy video game like this? Let's give the guy a break. J.M. kicks ass! This game, on the other hand, could use some work. Full Review »
