  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. Each event is well laid out and the voices, shortcuts and special snapshot opportunities will have fans saying wow.
  3. 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.
  4. Still, even with the new levels, simpler event progression, and slightly upgraded graphics, this feels too much like my last SSX winter getaway. Next season, I want to go somewhere new and exciting.
  5. You'll definitely enjoy the On Tour mode for a good while, but don't expect to love the entire game like you might have loved the previous titles in the series; it feels more like an odd but amusing experiment for the series that won't be back for the next iteration, which will most likely return to the roots that the series was most successful with.

    It's a great game in the same way its predecessor -- "SSX 3" -- was a great game. It is not, however, a great game in the same way "SSX Tricky" was before that -- that is to say, it won't go on to be one of the greats.

    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 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. Now there's more useable shortcuts and paths. 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

    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 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.

    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 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. Expand

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