    By itself, not a bad game at all. But if you compare it to SSX 3, which is the one I consider the best in the series, it really feels like it's missing some vital elements to be fully enjoyable. These few things are; characters voice-overs (this greatly affects the mood of the game and what made SSX so cool since the beginning), hand plants (why remove tricks), fully customizable By itself, not a bad game at all.

    Not a bad game. Controlls are an issue, I can never seem to pull of the uber tricks consistantly. I still like SSX Tricky 2 and 3 for the game cube better... After all, this is just the same game as 3 with a new harder controller.

    The Game is tight when you first play it. but the slalam crap is impossible and the ubertricks. No one can ever do the ubertricks without slapping themself with the controller or breaking it. The slalom makes me want to take the game and doodoo all over it. EA really had a chance to make this game tight, but they failed. Instead its just another mediocre game

    If you've never played SSX before, the SSX games are great, some of the best on any console anywhere. Having said that, this one is not a patch on the ones that came out a couple of years back on the PS2. The original SSX and SSX Tricky had way more atmosphere, graphically superior and were much more fun. I don't think the controls are especially hard, but there's no excuse If you've never played SSX before, the SSX games are great, some of the best on any console anywhere.

    The controls are a real pain to get to grips with, I've played it about 15 seperate occasions and have since given up - I much prefer the GC SSX games - what a letdown, it's a real shame.

    By no means is this a HORRIBLE game. In My opinion, the best of the series was SSX3. You got the Wonderful feeling of cruising down a mountain with that sick radio station. This game offers the same but with less substance. You will hear the announce say the same thing every other time. In SSX3, there was a lot of new and original that kept you interested.

I bought this game then returned it after beating the first level. Uber tricks.... forget it... just forget it.. you are lucky to do one accidentally. Also, as far as steering down the mountain, you tilt the nunchuk.... Why not use the JOYSTICK on top of the nunchuk?! It seems pointless and unnecessary! The Wiimote itself is hardly used altogether. Why not tilt BOTH to steer? It would make so much more sense! This game.. has SO MUCH potential but ultimately falls short of expectations.. It has everything I wanted but most of it is backwards or just rushed. Good luck to all. Expand

    Good game... Great sense of speed. I just give it a 6 because the controls are frustrating.

  1. No online play hurts, and the two-player split screen mode offers limited enjoyment, but overall, EA successfully "blurs" the line between realism and fantasy, creating a great video game for all ages.
  2. It replicates the feeling of sliding down a mountain side with eerie precision and manages to make other control schemes feel dated. There’s certainly plenty of opportunity for improvement with the sequel, but with a ton of content and even more fun, it’s hard to go wrong with SSX Blur.

    Dedicated (read: sadistic) gamers willing to invest the time necessary to figure out the controls might get a kick out of this one, but the convoluted controls will turn off most players. The lesson here is clear: Wii developers need to start with a blank slate rather than graft old-school control schemes onto the Wii Remote because, as SSX Blur demonstrates, it just doesn't work.
