Ea Sports SSX

http://www.ea.com/ssx

I actually really enjoyed a couple of snowboarding games. However, the appeal was playing with a bunch of guys and just having a blast making runs down the hill and having some laughs. The problem with that was it was hard to get guys online to play at the same time.

SSX: Deadly Descents, judging from the video below, looks to be a bit too serious fort his type of game. While that might make it a better solo experience, not sure what makes these games fun will be in the multiplayer.

Anyway, worth keeping an eye on if you enjoy snowboarding games.

Quote:
Redefining the SSX franchise, SSX: Deadly Descents 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 isnít the only danger players will face. In SSX: Deadly Descents the first goal is to survive. The second, in true SSX fashion, is to look good doing it.

I was never any good at these type of games, such as SSX or Tony Hawk. Maybe it's time to give it another try.

i'm a huge SSX fan. still play SSX3 on my xbox every once in a while. totally looking forward to this game, although the "edgier" and "darker" theme has me a little worried.

what i would really like to see is something like Autolog from Need for Speed Hot Pursuit - where you were constantly updated on how your friends are doing in the different events.

For an Xbox, there were 3 versions according to wikipedia):
