    Amazing game, if you still own a PS2 and want a cheap fun ride, pick this one up! You will love snowboarding and make you wish you lived in a place that had snow and mountains!

    Good visuals and fast paced gameplay. A few major problems. Holding down will make you go faster but if you are holding it and you get the tiniest bit of air you try to flip and fall, which can ruin things easily. While their are many varied tricks, some of the mechanics really suck. Sometimes flipping is really easy and you can do two and other times you will hold it and your guy will barely move. Unless you want to lose a race, don't try one of the major point-scorers because you never know if it will work or not. Finally there is the circuit. They make you race the same map 3 times and even with all the problems and the fact that all the riders are faster than you, even if you are speed and they are tricky, you are supposed to get top 3 every time. This would be fair if they let you restart the race that you had progressed to. But to make the game artificially longer they want you to race the level 3 MORE TIMES. I was already sick of the level after 3 times, but having to do 3 more and who knows how many if I make one mistake, was too much for me. Game like this that aren't long and don't have many maps try to make up for it by making the game seem longer since you have to repeat every course 10 times. Sloppy developing. Expand

    I never thought in a million years that my most played PS2 title would be a snowboarding game, but to my surprise it pretty much was. SSX was truly a good game, the unrealistic aspect of it made the experience even more fun and to this day this is one of the better PS2 titles. The best part of the game was learning and performing new tricks, tied in with some sweet maps. Even though I didn't own any of the predecessors, I've seen Tricky and SSX 3 and they are both worthy of the name and add some meaningful content. Expand

    This game has long entertained me for hours long after the original "Phat" PS2 I got it with has long died. A pinnacle game in my childhood... I can't say anything more about how great this game is.

  1. SSX is indeed BIG (thank you very much!), and one of the few games on PlayStation 2 worth its asking price in addictive, fun replayability.
  2. A surprise hit that contains a massive amount of depth (more apparent upon further exploration) and is a blast to play.
  3. One of the best games ever thanks to its gameplay, it also happens to be visually stunning, with beautifully designed 3D polygonal characters, all animated exquisitely with very few (if any) perceptible glitches in the modelling.
