SSX: Reviewed 6

Platforms:
Microsoft, Xbox 360, PS3, Sony
Release Date:
February 28, 2012
Price:

Rating:

The new SSX (360/PS3, $59.99) is in stores--the first new SSX since 2007's Blur, which was a Wii-exclusive. So what exactly is SSX? It's an over-the-top snowboarding simulation that encourages gamers to take monstrous leaps off the sides of mountains while performing death-defying tricks which sometimes resemble dance moves. Sure, it's more ridiculous than realistic, but when you're having this much, who cares, right?

The Consumer Electronics Show is currently in full swing in Las Vegas, Nevada. If you're into games, gadgets, and the latest in high-end technology, this is the place to be. So what's happening on the show floor? The Sports Gamer has all the information you need. Of all the trade shows that take place around the world each year, CES is easily the most overwhelming. That's because so many things here light and make noise and offer--in very real ways--to make my life easier (and if not easier, at least it'll be cooler--see the new OLED TV mentioned below).

Let's take a moment and imagine an NFL where there are no referees, no running plays, and no Bill Belichicks patrolling the sidelines. Also: first downs require you to cover not 10 yards but 30 yards. And showboating and excessive celebrations? Not only are both allowed--they're encouraged. Welcome to the over-the-top world of NFL Blitz, a game which debuted way back in 1997, and is available right now, in an all-new high-definition version for current-gen consoles (PS3, $14.99; 360, 1200 points).
