The first part of the SSX (Super Snow Cross) was released in 2000, this game was very well received. This game is about speed, tricks and tips, and of course is most fun with some friends. What is so special about the SSX series is that it has a large audience for a sports game. In most sports games is more the people that actually practice the sport, will play the game, but not with this game.

Before I had played the demo (preview) of SSX Deadly descents, I was very skeptical about this game. Since I've never been on a snowboard, I had not expected that the game would be any fun.
With the demo there was only one descent that you could do, the goal was to go as fast as possible from the top down. I was positively surprised by this demo, because before I knew it I was busy all afternoon with the breaking my personal records. I decided to buy the game anyway.

With a sports game like SSX, you often expect no storyline, this is not the case with this game. You start with a person named Zoe, she was once a member of team SSX. The greatest rival is named Griff who challenges the SSX team to a race. The one that completes the nine most dangerous descents in the world will win. These 9 descents are in 9 different regions of the world. In every region of the world you get to meet an old friend of the former team SSX, and try to persuade those to get back to the SSX team. This way you build your team so you can finally defeat Griff.

In the beginning you get a little training session before you are thrown into the deep. So you learn how to do tricks and basic control. After this brief instruction your first descent beings in the Rocky Mountains. In the beginning you will never be last and even occasionally first but that changed quickly. Later on it gets more challenging to get the first place. This ensures that you do not get frustrated because you're constantly finishing last but gives a kind of incentive for practicing a lot so you become better.

There is not much to criticize in SSX, the game is complete, nearly flawless and very addictive for both beginners and experienced players. The story is perhaps not so exciting but with this game that’s certainly not the most important part. This game is worth every pound!
