Anyone pick up the Mt. Eddie DLC experiencing freezing?

Anyone else pick up the Mt. Eddie DLC today? I know there are a few Giant Bomb users already on the leader boards and so far I'm enjoying what I've played (just one trick run, with the drop at the bottom of the mountain). I'd be enjoying it a bit more if it wasn't freezing though. So far in my... 10 minutes? with the DLC, the game has froze three times. It's happened every time I restarted the drop, whether through the pause menu or after my run is over. It's kind of annoying.

Has anyone else experienced this? Or have any thoughts in general of the mountain/ classic characters? Not really a fan of having to relevel Kaori to be honest aha.

I'll probably pick it up in the next day or so. How's the mountain/drops compared to the disc ones?

I'm playing on the PS3 and I've experienced no problems. So far I've played about an hour of it.

Just finished my first run. No freezes. Also, I wish the game had more drops like this. This is truly what SSX was always about: crazy rails going everywhere, and constantly getting big air.

Not on PS3. Might just be bad luck or your hardware crapping out.

Are you wearing the correct snowboarding gear? Because if you don't, you'll likely experience....

Not on 360, played for a while last night and had no problems. You should probably delete the DLC and redownload it.

The course is nice. No death pits, no outrageous darkness, lots of shortcuts, the AI is quite good on this one, but there's nothing outrageous about it.

Hell, I made a video about it last night, watch that and you can get a pretty good understanding of what to expect.

So i got it, and i had no problems.

I did have like 2 hiccups, but i figured that was because i had some background downloads going.

Anyway the mountain's great, the characters, unless you get the pack...

Are a waste of money.

@Mesoian: Good I hope what you say about SSX 2 being more like Tricky/3 is true... No more death pits pleeeeease.

Bought this earlier today and just saw this. Wish I looked earlier. The characters truly are a waste.

Okay, remember what I said about it not locking up for me? I take it back, it's locking up on me now every time I try to go down. Severly not cool.
