Default new spin on snowboarding

With the torrent of mini-game-oriented Wii titles subsiding, it was a nice surprise to receive a Wii-exclusive snowboarding game. SSX Blur is not only made by EA Big, which created the SSX series, but this version adds the unique Wii controllers for everything from performing tricks to maintaining balance.

Tilting the left controller steers the character left and right, while pushing up on the control stick increases speed. Snapping up on the left controller launches the snowboarder. When in the air, moving the right controller left or right performs a spin, while moving it up or down makes the snowboarder flip. All of this may seem daunting at first, but the controls start to feel natural after a short while.

Performing Ubertricks is very difficult, because the player has to actually draw shapes in the air while holding down a specific button. (If they were easy to do, they wouldn't be uber, now, would they?) Since some Ubertricks aren't listed, experimentation can yield rewarding hidden maneuvers. Players are free to bust phat tricks all over the mountain in assorted races, slope-style, big-air and half-pipe competitions, as well as swishing through slalom courses, exploring the backcountry in free-ride and trying any of a wide variety of challenges.
Even though some of the characters and courses are recycled from past SSX titles and the game lacks online play, SSX Blur on the Wii is a blast.

Wii is nice, but the novelty soon wears off and then it is kinda 'meh'

for me at least. but i can still see how it would work well in a house party environment.... but would you really be playing poota games at a party?
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

I don't really like ssx, amped is more realistic. Like the game won't fix your spins for you; if your upside down, you need to get out of that problem yourself. I'd get ssx if you don't have and xbox, though. It's not bad. SSX 3 was awesome with all the free roam capabilities.

SSX on the PS2 was so much fucking fun... I'm an FPS fan and somehow that still managed to be my favorite game ever
