- Summary: SSX On Tour is a completely fresh take on the SSX franchise. Building on the core speed and trick gameplay that has been so successful in the past, players can now choose their way to become black diamond fiends. SSX On Tour allows players to create their own boarder or skier and take them from a wannabe to a mountain rockstar. Players can get noticed in all-new shred challenges where they earn an invitation to The Tour where they'll face the best racers in the SSX cast. Fly down the all-new tracks, and master the new monster tricks for both boarding and skiing to make it to the top of The Charts. [Electronic Arts]… Expand
HugoUpton10This is my favourite game for PSP, full stop. There are many things which add up to this, so I'll try and be brief but probably get carried away knowing me. Point 1) It's SSX. By extension, it's awesome. Point 2) It's got ski-ing. Better than snowboarding (I've done both). Point 3) It quite frankly looks stunning. Just the framerate and the quality of the snow and particle effects are stunning, as are the character animations. Point 4) The sound is great. A standard EA soundtrack of awesomeness, combined with the subtilty of the backcountry and the fireworks of the tracks add up to something better than the sum of it's parts. I missed the banter between characters a little, but it's no biggie. Point 5) This sounds really weird, but being a ski-ier, I can say the controls feel really authentic and true. Even with the crammed buttons on the PSP, it flows really well, meaning you only blame yourself for screwing up. And this sounds really weird, but if you use the analouge stick it's the closest you'll get to the slopes without a ski pass. There's just something about the control that makes it feel very fluid and real, and it gives a sense of satisfaction when you beat an opponent or set a new record, that it was your own handiwork.
All in all, very good and highly recommended for all.… Expand
HEYGT8Hey GT ! why are you comparing portable games directly to consoles ? How well does your PS2 version look at 30,000 on an airplane ? Why buy a portable to play games while sitting on your couch at home ? U R missing the point. ~ this is a good game. Nice graphics, smooth frame-rate, challenging and fun. If you like SSX you'll love having it on a PORTABLE. later.… Expand
G.T.5Bought this yesterday and played it for about an hour before switing on my PS2 to play Tricky. This really doesn't feel like an SSX game.
BlueWhiteQuartzK.1This game is a waste of money. If you like Tricky and 3, you'll be disappointed with this farce.
