    One clear advantage of the PSP version is the multiplayer support. This is the only version of SSX that allows for multiplayer games aside from split screen.

    The game slows down when songs change during the race. [Holiday 2005, p.98]
  3. The game is technically sound, but inferior track design keeps this one from the greatness of its predecessors.

One can easily see that the creators had fun making this. I love the cartoon-ish design and the music. The graphics are great (still) and the game play really fun. This is how a good game should be and is one of the best for PS2. Full Review »

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.

    I used to own SSX Tricky for the GameCube. I thought that was a spectacular game for the GCN and spent many hours playing it. The huge open I used to own SSX Tricky for the GameCube. I thought that was a spectacular game for the GCN and spent many hours playing it. The huge open course and beautiful graphics are all here. This sequel closely matches Tricky for graphics, controls, and music - and on a handheld portable. Fantastic! I only have one complaint. The emphasis has been moved from doing lots of mid-air tricks and stunts to racing. You can still pull off the stunts, but they don't seem as over-the-top and don't play so much into your final score. Overall, I rate this game an 8.5: terrific, but there is some room for minor improvements. Full Review »
