    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.

    This one didn't get me as excited as any of the other ssx games, but it's definately quality stuff. I don't much like having to create a generic character and use him all the time though. The characters were a bit of a highlite in previous games, especially in ssx tricky. The actual slopes are probably the most refined they've ever been.

The new design and asthetic is neat, although for some reason there's an ugly autosave warning at the start of the game that you have to press through every time. It's a great game, but I wouldn't nexessarily recommend it over any of the other ssxs. Expand

    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.

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

    A disappointing follow-up to already a perfect game which came before it.

    The graphics are good but not as great as SSX 3 in terms of environment and weather effects. The soundtrack is the weakest of the series. I do like some songs from the game's soundtrack such as "Banquet", "Run To The Hills" and "Apply Some Pressure" but it's not as amazing as SSX's 3 soundtrack. The sound effects

The sound effects aren't as awesome sounding as SSX 3 either. The controls are good. The gameplay is decent and more diverse than SSX3 but doesn't have the wow factor and pizzazz that SSX3 gave us. I did like the multiple championship events and the ranking system however.

    I will give credit for the BIG improvement on customization. It does have a lot of replay value in terms of unlocking classic and new characters in the game, areas, clothes and pictures from performing stunts.

    It's good but didn't live up to the hype and SSX 3. It's sad that the game flopped. Try it out anyway.

  1. Although the new rock and roll theme is fantastic, there isn't really anything else that is new from the previous games.
  2. SSX: On Tour does a great job with the Tour Mode and Monster Tricks system, but it just comes down to not enough being offered.

    It would have been nice if staying on a slippery metal pole without falling off was rewarded via points like in the Tony Hawk games but I guess you can't have everything. Enjoy the delights of this delicious winter warmer now.
