  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. SSX is missing a couple of key elements that would have put it on the same level as "Amped"; namely online gameplay. But the trade-off is a very good control system that you have to get used to.
  5. Hurtling down the tundra and concocting ridiculously large combo strings remain irresistible qualities, but the torturous design of the game makes you want to take the next flight off of this mountain. [Nov 2005, p.140]
  6. The issue here perhaps that the SSX franchise was not yet ready for another sequel, and EA's attempt to further cash in on their past success has resulted in a game that is inferior to its predecessors.
  7. Dear Tricky, we miss you. [Jan 2006, p.91]
