  1. I loved the rock concert atmosphere and awesome soundtrack, and the naturalistic track designs were inspired and expertly crafted so they work independently or when merged together for longer runs.
  2. Those who are looking for more Tony Hawk style challenges which are entirely based on skill, might not dig the On Tour vibe with it's easier than pie trickstylings, but those who know that it's all about getting to the bottom first and looking awesome while doing it will really get into this one.

    Since just about every trail is unlocked from the beginning, you won't get to feel the satisfaction of making your way to a new mountain (one of the best parts of "SSX 3") and exploring it for the first time. Still, there's no denying that this is yet another stellar entry one of the most consistently excellent series around today.
  4. Not a huge departure from previous SSX games, SSX on Tour is still the best extreme snowboarding game available.
  5. Each event is well laid out and the voices, shortcuts and special snapshot opportunities will have fans saying wow.
  6. It might not bring earth shattering extras to the table but this time SSX on Tour has managed to fix everything we hated about the series in the first place and has ultimately matured enough to be an essential purchase this time around.

    Skiing is a blast even though it's not significantly different from boarding, and the rock star approach is a perfect fit. There's no question that this game is worth your money, but keep in mind that most of new content has more to do with presentation than gameplay.
  8. Sure, it's not the second coming of extreme sports games, and some people might even be a bit disappointed, but if you've never played an SSX game before, this is definitely a great starting point.
  9. The game hits its stride late, but when it does, it hits it big. There's a lot of fun here for the patient gamer.
  10. Despite the lack of an online mode, this brand new style works out extremely well for the series and should bring the game a lot more fans.
  11. Despite the lack of multiplayer options, there are plenty of things to do in the single-player tour mode, and its steady progression in difficulty is wholly satisfying.
  12. This is an incredibly slick package, and not just on the surface, either. On Tour tightens up a lot of the underlying course designs and gameplay mechanics, and it quickens the pace without betraying the fundamentals of SSX.

    A SLIGHT improvement at best from the last installment. It still suffers from way too unrealistic point of view.

    Nowhere as good as SSX 3. The Tour is cool but limits what you can do. I prefer the music and the slopes of SSX 3. Take the player control improvements and more short cuts from On Tour and put it in SSX 3 and you got a perfect game. Full Review »

    this game is a big let down. I feel no satisfaction in playing it. sure the graphics are upgraded but everythige else lags behind 3 and tricky. creat your own character is not in depth and instead of upgrading stats all u can upgrade is skis + boards. skiing is exactly like boardining but with dif. tricks can u say gimmick! this game i got for 15 bucks and that is how much it is worth.
