It's unrealistic. No one wants arcade games when they are deeply involved in the sport. It's almost an insult to the sport. I can understand if snowboarding games had been beat to death and they introduced a new arcade style to refresh the genre, but they are just doing complete opposite and making the genre more bland.

It's not an insult to the sport any more than NBA Jam is an insult to basketball or Wipeout is an insult to racing... SSX is a series that has always been about over the top arcade action over realism. It's pretty ridiculous to read into it any more than that. If you want a realistic video game interpretation of snowboarding than you should look into the SNOW project (snowthegame.com) because SSX is NOT it and has never tried to be.

And that's why people don't like SSX. I was just elaborating as to why people don't like it. It's their choice to fix it.

I'm sorry but saying "the demo is bad" is completely different than saying "the game is not realistic" and that's what I was responding to.

Wow. I didn't realize it was going to ruffle so many panties to like a game that isn't hyper-realistic. I guess I'll never know what it's like to be one of the cool kids.

I wore the original ssx tricky, out! I don't mind the arcade style(I spent my teens in arcades). One of the reasons I liked the original so much is the music. BT, Huda, etc. I know Pretty Lights did some work for the new one. I wonder who else. I'm also not into that kind of music like I used to be(I'll take Karl Denson, Soulive, or Lettuce, these days).

The demo is bad cause it's unrealistic. That's pretty similar to me. And I wouldn't quote people if your not trying to talk to them.

There is nothing to "fix" about SSX. It is the same game it always has been. It's not like it was a realistic game that turned arcade. It has always been over the top arcade style gameplay. And there is a big difference in saying "the demo was bad" and "I don't like the game because it is unrealistic." One statement says that for its target market the game just plays like crap or looks horrible. The other one says I don't particularly care for that style of game. To say the demo is crap would lead some people who like the SSX style to believe this new iteration is bad when it is not.

And while we're on the topic of realism, do you guys suit up in your Gore-Tex, beanies, and boots and turn the A/C down as far is it will go to get a truly realistic experience? Maybe have someone throw some ice shavings in your face periodically? Do you only ride to your ability in game? Surely you don't go throwing double corks in the game when you can only do a 360 in real life. In Shaun White did you actually ride the lifts all the way up instead of hitting the button to skip that part? While I enjoy games that are based more in reality the whole premise of ultra-realism is a joke to me. Until I can stand on my board in my living room and perform the same moves I would on a hill to control my character on screen it is all a game. You are holding a plastic controller in your hand....which is probably a bitch with those mittens on.

Thank you, that is exactly what I was trying to say.
