I picked it up too. I need my fix. I'm mostly interested because it's a freeride based world. So you can just cruise laps if you want. You don't have to go through career or "missions" to rack up score or money. You can just ride and hit cool features.

Sure, the tricks will be over the top and obnoxious...but that's been the staple of this game since inception.

Bring on the lulz.

I've never played an SSX but I'll try out the demo. I really wish there would be a "EA SNOW", a EA Skate equivalent. Although, EA really screwed up Skate 2 n' 3 with emphasis on 'hall of meat'.

its cool i guess, its something fun to kick back with some brews and mess around with
controls are kinda sketchy tho...maybe theres a learning curve - its easy to get stuck in a corner and not be able to get out which results in you losing...thats pretty irritating

My only complaint: There is no split-screen multiplayer....

Yeah that sucks, but it's completely understandable. There are very few games that can still do split screen multiplayer, given the complexity of the engines these days.

THIS. To me the whole point of these games is to have something to make you feel like you're doing the activity when you cant actually be doing it. Skate made me feel like I was out on the street again. Ultra realistic where hard tricks in real life were hard tricks in the game. I wasn't going 50 mph after one push & catching 100 feet of air off a curb. When I'm not snowboarding, I WANT TO BE. So playing a game like SSX, where I feel not at all like I'm riding, doesn't appease that. It's fun. But its not snowboarding.

Hm funny, I just picked up Stoked Big Air edition and Shaun White's game since I never actually played them before. Was only like $25 total. Need my fix while I'm busy icing my elbow bursitis back to normal
