STAFF REVIEW of SSX Tricky (Xbox)


Wednesday, March 6, 2002.
by Tony Ingrassia



SSX Tricky Box art SSX Tricky is almost a carbon copy of the PS2 version with a couple of perks.Bump mapping, and super SMOOTH gameplay on the xbox. A nice variety of play modes, and enough of a challenge to keep you comming back for more. If you like snowboarding with an arcade twist, you will love SSX Tricky.


The trick system has a comfortable learning curve, the trick book is a nice place to sharpen your skills. The force feedback in this game is fenominal, wait till you go over ice covered terain!! After a little while the contol becomes second nature and you spend most of your time planning out your next string of tricks. The challenges are just that...chalenging, but obtainable. Once you get a nice string together, pulling off Uber tricks is achieved by the push of a button, make sure you got enough air!! Gameplay runs as smooth as the slopes in this game.


Although this game is brite and energetic,it does suffer from one technical dificulty. You have a bit of drop in frame rate when more than one charecter is on the screen(Minimal but there), but to counter that you have some great Bump Mapped snow, great shadow effects, and some nice firework effects, this game is pretty solid visually.


The audio is above average inthis game, from the music, spiced up by Run DMC's Tricky, to the sound of the ice and snow under your board. One of the coolest effects is if your playing with your system hooked up to DD Suround. Hearing wise cracks from your competitors BEHIND you, or flying through some trees and hearing the brush go by, deffinetly draws you into this game.


Suggestions:
I would hope any sequel will be enhanced a little more to take advantage of the XBOX. Runs smooth, but could have been much more.


Overall: 9.0 / 10
