Title
SSX3 above all :)
In my opinion the best SSX game ever made.
The characters, the soundtrack, the levels, the tricks, the fashion, the way the music is integrated in the gameplay (mindblowing for it's time and still holds up really well), the scoring system (I love the `long grab` and `stalled flips` mechanics, that entice you to play more stylishly). Furthermore, the sound FX are amazing, and DJ Atomika and Radio BIG bring so much flavour to the experience.

I see people criticizing the open world aspect but I think it doesn't get in the way of the game at all, and it fleshes out the world nicely, going from camp to camp to see if you can get different gear for your rider to look fresh, tricking along the way.
I've poured so many hours in this game and I still replay it every other year or so.

Apparently, the creator of the series, Steve Rechtschaffner, is working on a new
Snowboarding IP, along with some of the team that worked on the SSX games. So keep your eyes peeled for that. Look up "Project Gravity" if you want to read more.

Nothing really wrong with this, I suppose, it just suffers from the typical problem of the new open-world framework messing with the beautiful unity of the original linear vision. Freeform boarding down the mountain is fun, but for linking missions together? Otherwise, a fine addition to SSX.

    Every new snowboarding game that comes out is crushed by the shadow of SSX 3's legacy (as well as SSX Tricky). None of the ones I've played or seen seem to stack up to this game from nearly 20 years ago and it's a shame.

    Also that soundtrack is the definition of stacked. I mean, Yellowcard, MxPx, Thrice, Autopilot Off, Chemical Brothers and Placebo along with a shit ton of Trance and Big Beat? How is that not a good soundtrack?

      the way individual parts fade in and out is still unmatched by any other game that tried the same thing. every time you heard each track it feels like a whole new mix

    One of the best games of all time. INSANE graphics for the PS2, the soundtrack slaps extremely hard, the mechanics have aged perfectly, and the characters and levels give the game a charm that really takes it to the next level. Finally, the open-world setup is incredibly ambitious and almost flawlessly executed.
