THE GOOD: Tons of Boards Tricks are awesome can make your own characters soundtrack is old school!
THE BAD: CHARACTERS ARE JUST COPIES OF OTHER CHARACTERS OR IN OTHER WORDS, HAVE BASICALLY THE SAME TRICKS.... no online play gets boring once in a while storyline is a little weak new characters no griffin less tricks
SUMMARY: to tell you about this game is actually a little hard to explain, this game is not like any other ssx game, but in a bad way. One, the CHARACTERS ARE JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER CHARACTER SO ITS JUST LIKE CHOOSING THE SAME CHARACTER EVERYTIME....That was the main thing that pissed me off. The soundtrack changed from techno/rock/r&b/rap to classic rock/punk rock/a little rap, which is good for me 'cause i dont listen to rap that much. No online play in this one which is another downside to this game because online play was fun in SSX 3. You can make your own characters which is fun but it is a tad bit limited, but no big deal about that. A hella lot of boards to even your tricks and...
THE GOOD: - Lots of boards, outfits, hairstyles - Lots of different events to participate in - The slopes or runs are very well planed out and have more than one way to reach the bottom.
THE BAD: - Gets a little boring
SUMMARY: The main story of this game is that you start as a nobody who wants to become a somebody. You create a character, customize him/her, and hit the slopes in a quest for hype. You can choose to be either the traditional SSX snowboarder, or you can choose to go through the career mode on skis, which is new.
You start the tour and gain hype by completing shreds and event compitions.
There are no more uber tricks but monster tricks took over. Monster tricks can be quite difficult becasue once you start one the camera angle moves and you cant really see you landing.
The controls are as tight and responsive as ever. If you suck at this game, its not the game's fault. It controls as good as any game can get.
The different slopes or runs on this game are very tight and difficult...
SSX has always treated us to truly great gameplay while always managing to bring a different feel each time out. SSX: OT is no different. Great gameplay, different vibe. So the tradition continues.
This time around you have to create your own character to tear up the slopes with. While this feature is extremely bland and poorly implemented in my opinion, you mainly only see your characters back anyway while playing through the game. The goal is to make a name for yourself on the tour and eventually go from being a nobody to being the ultimate Black Diamond Rockstar. Wow. Not being able to use vets in this portion of the game was wholly disappointing.
While SSX has historically always been somewhat challenging to truly master in terms of tricks and combinations, OT has been dumbed down quite a bit. The UBER tricks are now gone and only Monster Tricks remain. Not only that, they have decided to use the right analog stick to pull off Monsters whi...
