Since then, I have been glued to my PS2 playing it. What awesome graphics/sound (THX, by the way)/and gameplay. The ONLY thing missing here (and I can't decide if it's major or minor) is the Trick Book.. I agree with the other reviewer(s) in that the trick book, while sometimes REALLY frustrating, was the "challenging" part of the first two. However, the races and pipe challenges in this newer installation of the SSX series are giving me plenty of challenge.
If you loved or even liked the first two SSX games, this one will impress you even more.
What did you think of this review?
Gamers will need to overcome everything the mountain throws at them-from fierce lightening storms and breathtaking vertical drops to serpentine slope style courses and earth-swallowing avalanches-on their quest for the ultimate adrenaline rush. The mountain presents gamers with a world of open vistas and fresh powder for out of bounds exploration, filled with trick venues, rail parks, racecourses, and half-pipes with new tricks to master and new competitors to leave in the dust.
More than two years in the making, SSX 3 is a massive sequel to SSX and SSX Tricky, the games that started the EA SPORTS BIG brand. Buckle up your bindings as a returning veteran or fresh-faced rookie. Get ready to take on other riders-and the biggest challenge yet-the Mountain itself.
