Compete in the World Circuit, go head-to-head in the unique Showoff (trick) versions of nine courses on the World Circuit, or just kick it in Free Ride. New Garibaldi and Alaska courses let you get more vertical and catch more air, while all the original courses have some new surprises. [Electronic Arts] Collapse

    The biggest improvement though comes in the form of the framerate.
  2. I can't begin to explain how addictive I found this. [Jan 2002, p.140]

    The best snowboarding game on the market.
  4. The sound effects are all extremely accurate, whether carving in powder or carving on ice, the noise produced will make you think you're actually on the slopes.
  5. The visuals are, if anything, more extreme than the previous version - the whole game is geared to slam your eyeballs through the back of your head. Not, fairly obviously, in a bad way, but in a crisp, well-defined and dazzling way.
  6. It is full of new ideas, updates, and fun content that flesh out the SSX concept completely.

    This game is pure crap which is topped with dumb celebrity voice overs, over use for "Tricky" and bad camera angles. The speed of SSX is This game is pure crap which is topped with dumb celebrity voice overs, over use for "Tricky" and bad camera angles. The speed of SSX is slowed in Tricky and the tracks are boiled down to empty reruns and lame new tracks. The characters are so bland the trick mode is bad mainly cuz or the tracks. GET SSX 3, it's a major improvement! Expand
