I have some fond memories of SSX Tricky on the PS2. I never owned the game and I never got REALLY into it, but I loved playing it at friends' houses. I know this SSX doesn't have split screen, but I've been watching gameplay videos and it looks pretty cool. I'm not usually a fan of sports game of any kind -- realistic or not -- but do you think I would enjoy SSX?
i wasn't into sports games at all, the only thing that interested me about SSX Tricky was being a snowboarder and trying it out, i loved it! the characters were wacky and you got into the game, it was fun, SSX3 added a whole new fun factor to it in being able to customize the looks and all that of your riders. SSX however i didn't like. the controls are so over the top sensitive (at least for me, if anyone has some fix for this, it will increase the fun factor for this game for me 100 fold) and you can't change it, only the button layout. the suits all look the same, just different colors, nothing a whole lot fun about it... the controls being super sensitive made getting anything done nigh-on impossible in game, as i would try to turn a bit to the left and the character would be pulled 50 feet over in that direction. if you haven't played the others, feel free to try it, but in my opinion, if you've played the others, you'll be disappointed, sorry.
