This game is an instant classic -- EA, please bring this series back!
Truly one of the best snowboarding games ever made
From the first time I saw it Pure seemed very similar to these games. I would still really like to see a new SSX on the next gen systems (preferably Ps3/360 for obvious reasons) but I hope this game will have a similar feel to it's racing at least. Even though it isn't a snowboard game.
I've just started pulling out this old classic and it has aged VERY well. Its still freaking great fun to play. I think the biggest reasons are because it created a believable world and atmosphere on the mountains, with the DJ that was actually not super annoying, decent tunes, good characters, awesome presentation, well designed mountains that can crumble and environment that can be manipulated by smashing into trees or thin ice, awesome animation and transitions between animations (you can slow mo replays and it still looks fucking great. The environments are so interesting and exciting to ride through sometimes (Caves, avalanches right in your face etc.) you might think it was a freaking adventure game. Freeriding down the peaks can actualy be alot of fun, NO LOADING EVER while riding on the mountain, very few menus, three very distinct peaks that are actually seamlessly connected to each other. The ability to ride down the whole mountain for 30 mins without a single loading screen.. I mean that just captures everything you want in a snowboarding game doesn't it?
"I really liked SSX Blur for the Wii. I seemed to be the only person who learned how to control it.I got it, except for the damn uber-tricks. Basically, I was stuck either doing the ones that I could do over and over again, or just randomly waving my arms around
"Illmatic said:SSX Tricky? My specific, detailed memory of the game is bad so keep in mind I'm working on nostalgia here. What I do recall though is pulling off specials over huge ramps and an amazingly cheesy rendition of "It's Tricky" by Run DMC over the intro. The overall style of the game and hours wasted playing it with friends is what got me though."I always wanted to play it but never got around to it. As it stands, Tricky's the only snowboarding game I've tried. In addition, its also the only one I've liked."Tricky eh?
what is that like?"
If developers could blend the personality and craziness of Tricky with the gameplay and huge mountains of 3, I think you'd have the absolute best snowboarding game possible. Some of the voice work in SSX Tricky was priceless - Billy Zane and Oliver Platt in particular. I'd buy a new SSX game.
just make ssx tricky 2......same format.....same characters with some new.....same tracks with some new....and the same damn music, RUN DMC made the adrenalin pump like a penis enlarger on speed........best game ever (sports) in my opinion......its testament to it that i've completed the game - sold it - rebought it - completed it - sold it - bought my daughter an old ps2 for her b'day - bought tricky again for another runthough....i'm a sucker i know
Just started playing SSX Tricky and SSX 3 again and I am so hype for the new one!
@coonce: If you haven't seen those dev commentaries on GT or the like on the new SSX I recommended you check them out they are really looking top to regen the old feel I have SUCH high hopes but I'm trying to not get to hype just in case!
