  • Summary: Second-generation rider physics provide more in-air and on-snow user control. 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] Expand

    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.

    I didn't think I would really be into snowboarding games but this is excellent. This is not only the best PS2 game, but the best game I have bought ever! And if the game doesn't get you, I bet you won't stop singing the 'Tricky' Song. Expand

    Not only is this game the best SSX game but it's actually a classic game in gaming overall. This game is pure fun. You need to own this game if you still use your PS2. Collapse

    Without a doubt the best game I have ever played. Most of my other games are collecting dust !

    This Game is Wonderful! The Graphics are Awesome, but, unfortunately, there is an overuse of "Trickies." But even that overuse didn't bring down the score! SSX has NEVER BEEN BETTER! Any Other Lower Score WOULD DEFINATELY BE A PUT-DOWN! THIS IS THE TRUE RATING! Sweet! It banged the sh*t out of Me! Expand

    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
