A modern day reinvention of one of the most critically acclaimed arcade franchises of all-time, EA Sports SSX will allow players to experience the franchise's signature fun and adrenaline-packed gameplay across iconic mountain ranges all over the world.

Redefining the SSX franchise, SSX will pit riders versus both mountain and man. Players will explore the story of a team who seek to be the first to descend the faces of the most treacherous mountain ranges on the planet. The team will travel the world to face the worst that Mother Nature can throw at them.

From the peaks of the Himalayas, where the air is so thin that riders have to descend through the death zone at breakneck speeds to keep from blacking out, to the solid ice ranges of Antarctica, where a sunlit line is the only survival option when temperatures drop 50 degrees centigrade in the shade.

And the mountain isn't the only danger players will face. In SSX the first goal is to survive. The second, in true SSX fashion, is to look good doing it.

Using NASA topographical satellite data, we've mapped out a Massive World for players to explore. Throughout nine expansive mountain ranges, SSX packs reality-defying gameplay into every run letting players Race, Trick, and Survive down huge open mountains. In addition, Explore, Global Events and RiderNet - SSX's recommendation engine - headline an online feature set that will revolutionize social competition for gamers, making it fun and easy to compete with friends on your schedule.

Conquer the planet's mountains: From Antarctica to Africa and the Himalayas to the Alps, players will drop into nine of the most iconic mountains ranges on planet earth. Using NASA topographical data and our proprietary Mountain Man tool, each of these iconic mountain ranges have then been exaggerated to deliver a gameplay experience that is true to SSX.

    Race it: Way beyond your typical racing experience, SSX allows players to race down huge open mountains with multiple elevations and no invisible walls to hem the player in

      Trick it: Defying the laws of reality, SSX will enable players to pull off tricks that would make even the world's greatest snowboarders cringe. Forget a 1260 Double Mctwist, in SSX if you still have both feet strapped to the board while you're spinning 200 feet in the air then you're still a beginner. With a refined trick system and levels designed to deliver trick opportunities at every turn, filling your Tricky meter is a must.

        Survive it: A new gameplay element inspired by big mountain snowboarding, SSX asks players to survive some of the most treacherous descents on earth. Challenged by the power of Mother Nature, players will have to survive avalanches, white outs, freezing cold temperatures and much more, as they make their way down these natural boss battles.

          Advanced physics: Harnessing the power of the current generation of consoles, SSX introduces a revolutionary physics engine that will allow players to ride and trick off almost anything in the environment, unrestricted by invisible walls and barriers

            Upgradeable gear: From boards of varying speeds to wing suits that let you glide for longer distances, upgrade your gear to ride faster, trick higher and survive longer

              Characters old and new: Favorite characters, as selected by the fans, make their return to SSX along with new faces that will be joining the franchise

               SSx by name - that all...

              Somewhere along the line they removed what made SSX fun and replaced it with infuriating survival challenges where you're lucky to even reach the end without your boarder disappearing into bottomless holes or getting wrapped round a tree. I loved SSX on the PS2 the name is the only thing this game has in common.

               What have they done to SSX!

              Im a big fan of the previous SSX games. SSX3 was the best on the PS2 for me.

              SSX on the PS3 looks and sounds the part. I wont repeat the positives that other reviews have given it but I will chime in with a few negatives.

              1. Some of the runs in this game are little tight and chock full of obstacles to the point where all you can do is watch your player bounce down the slope. The whole survive it focus of the game doesnt really work. Breakneck speeds and no room to move dont mix.

              2. No respawn. If you fall down a crack in the run thats it, restart the whole race unless you use a rewind. Rewinds can be limited in their number but take ages to use and other racers just keep on going. If you need to use more than 2 you really ought to restart the run.

              3. The deadly descent runs require you to keep an eye on something like your oxygen level, your temperature or using a wing suit. These interupt the flow of the game and quickly become annoying.

              I think that in their attempt to bring SSX back the developers have thrown too much at it, its almost a sporting RPG as you have to buy and equip certain bits of kit just to be able to survive a run. SSX Tricky and SSX3 were more fun and the only annoyance was to be found in your choice of route down the mountain.

              This seems like a step backwards for the series but thats not to say that there isnt some classic SSX like fun to be had on some of the runs.

               Well done EA,Best game in years!!!!

              The SSX series was always fun to play great graphics and good soundtrack, i had very high expectations about this,but was waiting for the usual " oh EA they've ruined it,nothing like the original" BUT not this time!! SSX goes back to its roots,its like SSX Tricky madness and a scale of SSX 3,on next gen! So much more to do,unlockable gear such as wingsuits,oxy tanks,ice picks..... Over 150 tracks to race,trick... Superb modern soundtrack especially if like me u like some great beats to carve up the mountain. Great online features and the control scheme actually works! theres also an option for classic controls if like me you are an SSX old school veteran :)
              All in all SSX is and uber awesome game easily 10/10 click that buy button you wont be dissapointed, again well done EA

               Best game I have played in a long time.

              This game, simply put, is the one game you should get if you own a playstation 3 or xbox 360, the music selection EA chose for this game is bouncy, vibrant and make the game more entertaining to play. The graphics are phenomenal; clear and bright. The gameplay is fun and addictive, with over 150 levels and online features, it is a vast amount of content, 39.89 is almost a bargain for all the fun you can get out of this. Great game, buy it now, I recommend buying for the playstation 3, and from play.com, 10/10!

               Top draw......SSX will blow you away!!

              Absolutely brilliant is how I would describe this game. Stunning graphics, great mountains to snowboard down and loads of great features like wing suits, upgrades on equipment and plenty of characters to choose from. I've only just started playing it so i can't comment to much but I am truly hooked.....top draw ea sports!!!
