SSX: On Tour review

Take to the powder

For

  • The new inclusion of skiers
  • Sheer vastness of courses
  • Monster Tricking with the analog stick

Against

  • No switching from skier to boarder
  • The Xtreme! motif can be obnoxious
  • Not much different from SSX 3

SSX: On Tour is a fantastic game... but scratch beneath the surface veneer and it%26rsquo;s definitely an evolution rather than revolution. Yet you%26rsquo;d be forgiven for assuming the latter. First up is the new skiing option. There are those in the boarding fraternity that can%26rsquo;t abide their cousins on skis and imagine that the introduction of the two-footers into their extreme sports games tantamount to collaboration with the enemy. But apart from shelving this outdated view (hey - we all love the snow, dude), whichever you choose, the controls and results are broadly the same.

DescriptionBigger and more beautiful. A quicker SSX, jam-packed with 'sicker', 'iller' and 'doper' runs - and through the sheer quantity of those runs alone we give this the nod for veterans and newcomers alike.
