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

              I was a big fan of the old ssx games on the ps2 and all i can say is how well this game has been made so that older fans of the series can recognise it as it used to be but for newer fans the amount of depth that the game goes into is amazing.

              You earn credits for competing in races etc that you can use to buy equipment such as outfits and boards, however so players can't just get the best items straight away the items are limited to each character and the items you are shown are only shown four at a time and are completely random ( for example one time you could see a rare but costly board whereas after finishing a race and starting a new one totally different boards are available to buy).

              A new game mode has been introduced instead of a standard online race where players pay credits to compete in races such as trick races, race races and survival races. the aim is to complete the objective (fastest time, highest trick score etc) in the highest bracket you can (from bronze to diamond). the better you do, the better bracket you fall into, therefore meaning the more you get paid. there is sooo much more depth that in this short review i cannot go into much detail about such as mods that you can purchase to give your character a boost in speed tricks or boost etc for one race only, and other equipment such as oxygen tanks, ice picks etc etc, but all i can say is buy the game, if your a fan of the ssx series or you like what im saying about it in the review then get it as i cannot recommend it more, easily one of my favourite xbox 360 games and i had the console for around 3 years.

              The insane way ssx used to be has stuck here aswel which i'm really glad about, but the new features really stand out and make it even better than it used to be. Geotags which are tags that players can earn in game or purchase let players lay down tags on tracks that other players can see and try and take to earn credits, however the longer your geotag stays without being captured, the more credits you get. you can have geotags staying on maps for days, even weeks before a player manages to find it and capture it in race. Additions like this and the extra detail to character customisation and character levels which they earn through xp makes this game a must have for ssx fans, snowboard game fans and competitive gamers alike.

               Excellent

              Fast, exciting, Tricky.

              What a game this is, it's really a flash from the past and reminds me why i used to love the SSX franchise.

              The gameplay itself is fast and frustrating. Frustrating when you fall down cliffs, hit trees (so many trees) or fall short of the time you're trying to beat. It's this frustration that makes it all the more satisfying once a run is completed. Tie that in with beating your friends on xboxlive, all setting times and scores... and we have 8 hours lost right there!

              Don't get this used however as you will be without a usable online code.

              Buy it now if you're unsure. You wont regret it! x x x x x (5 stars not kisses)

               GOOD FUN!!

              Only played the demo so far for SSX but loved SSX tricky and this seems even more insane than that,a nice break from the norm of COD,FIFA etc,look forward to it :)

               Dont review it if you havent played it!!!!

              So one reviewer hasnt played the full game yet and another claims the music is the highlight!!
              Complete let down, big superfast spins so you cant see whats happening, tight 'tracks' rather than wide runs and way too many cliff drops to fall off, not fun to play at all, nothing like snowboarding, no style involved just go fast and flip about a bit.
              Obstacles to bump into, some tracks you have to hit 'rb' for oxygen whilst trying to navigate tight turns and blind jumps. Gutted I am, terrible wast of money.

               ITS TRICKAAAAAAAAY..once more

              Best snowboarding series there has ever been- nothing else like it. Check out the soundtrack, it is one of the highlights of this game which is complimented by the dynamic "harmony" which DJ's accordingly to the weather, speed etc.
              GET.
