A new SSX game is upon us, the first for five years. And as that was just SSX Blur on the Wii it doesn’t really count. But is this new SSX a return to form or should the series have remained retired for good?
The early reviews for SSX have been generally favorable, with almost all of the important sites and publications rating it between 80 and 90 percent. Good points being cited are the fast and thrilling gameplay, the gorgeous visuals, great controls, and a genius multiplayer mode.
However, it’s not all positive. Bad pointed being cited are the harsh difficulty level and steep, uneven learning curve, frustrating level designs, and the short single player mode. And that’s without even mentioning Edge.
Edge inconceivably scored SSX just 5 out of 10, with its main complaint being that the game is bland and uninspiring. Edge often gives games harsh scores, and ones that don’t gel with what everyone else thinks of them. SSX is no exception.
