    It's a demo, what did you expect?
    I think me and Jackald want more after seeing how big the ME3 demo is with the multiplayer and whatnot

    You seem to think that SSX should be the Skate of snowboarding.(try being really realistic) SSX at its core was always fast pace and crazy and now there is hardware that can handle it's vision.

    Your complaint about it being too easy because your borard gravitates toward the ground is also kind of empty because your board only does that if you stop rotating/tricking. Anyone who is capable of playing SSX will probably not use that feature because it cuts off score; at most it is to help beginners get adjusted.

    Lastly, about not being able to crash. I would assume that the idea behind making it easier to stay on your board is not to try and make the game easier but to keep the game going fast. It's punishment enough to lose your combo or speed from making a bad decision.
    Nowhere in my post did I say or mention anything about it being realistic.

    I said it's extremely fast, which is cool, but it's hard to tell what's going on sometimes. I also said it seems that I can do tricks just by mashing a bunch of buttons and I get a high score.

    And no, my complaint isn't empty. It rotates to the ground, whereas it didn't do that in previous installments, therefore making it easier than previous installments. I don't know how on earth that's "empty." Your statement of "anyone who is capable" is a dick attempt at demeaning anyone who would use it.

    My point is that it shouldn't be there, not whether or not you should use it. I think if you leave your board up in the air, you should come down on your head, just like you did in SSX Tricky. Now was Tricky realistic in the slightest? No, not at all.

    A "bad decision" in your argument is apparently not crashing, so I don't really see any other bad decisions besides making yourself go the wrong way.

    You can't begin an argument by basing yours off of someone else's statements or views that they didn't make and don't have.

    But needless to say you'll all go group mentality and disagree with me, because that seems to be the trend.


    My point was that it's way too simplified, and I'm comparing it to SSX Tricky. I don't want realism, I want the SSX series. And this game has that. It's just that I think the gravitational pull on the bottom of the board is silly and is too much hand-holding.


    On a side-note: I wish Eddie wasn't preorder only. I don't have $60 and I like Eddie...

    I like that the trick system has a heavier emphasis on holding tricks for as long as possible in big airs rather than just repeatedly mashing the buttons to do as many tricks in the air as possible.

    How high is high? I saw a video of someone getting over 50 million, and I don't think he mashed buttons.

    And no, my complaint isn't empty. It rotates to the ground, whereas it didn't do that in previous installments
    If you do a flip in any of the games, I'm pretty sure the flip completes if you stop holding the button down. Where it is different however is if you come off a jump sideways; in Tricky you'd just inevitably fall off when you land since you took off at a funny angle, but in the new one you still have a chance to land. I'd call that an improvement due to less frustration.

    A "bad decision" in your argument is apparently not crashing, so I don't really see any other bad decisions besides making yourself go the wrong way.
    Hitting a jump at a bad angle and landing in the wrong place?
    Ending your combo early?
    Over/undershooting a jump?
    Getting fewer flips/spins in a jump than the maximum possible?
    Running out of boost?
    Repeating tricks?
    etc. etc.

    But needless to say you'll all go group mentality and disagree with me, because that seems to be the trend.
    I disagree with you on a personal level because I think you're wrong. I'll happily admit that I did share some of your concerns until I started trying to chase the absolute highest scores (and failing). It reminded me that this is undoubtedly a hardcore game, and it's tricky TRICKY TRICKYYYYY to get a perfect run.

    Why is there always someonewho goes "You're all just ganging up on me!" It's not like people could disagree with you, or have different opinions, right?

    Maybe I didn't play enough and missed something. I mean gold medal high, not record breaking on YouTube high.

    And I just played ssx tricky and it will dump you on your head if you don't complete the flip.

    I still want the game I just don't like the gravIty hand holding.

    And I said that because there's this thing called mob mentality and bandwagon effects, and they happen too often on the Internet and face punch. Like the word stuffing you're doing. I've Posted in here twice and both times someone shoved words in my mouth.

    The actual trick landing stuff seems a shitton easier, but I like that. It's more focused on doing well, rather than just not fucking up.


    'cept in the deadly descents.

    Edited:

    I also fucking love the physics system. You can Land a trick by slamming into a rocky wall as long as you're oriented so your board is parallel with its surface.

    Fair enough, I haven't played it in years. Maybe one of the later games does it? Or maybe I'm thinking of late flips, where you tap a button in the air to do a front/backflip.

    Honestly the only SSX game I have really played before this was SSX: On Tour, but that game was absolutely awesome.

    Hahaha I tried, okay? It sounded reasonable.

    Yeah, I noticed that with On Tour. It was just such a drastic change from Tricky to SSX, but I see that there's been a transition.

    I'll still buy this, but when it's cheaper so I have money.

    Trick it:
    Use the map as a half pipe and not as a path straight down, go back and forth when possible(losing speed or going backwards is bad because you lose tricky), Don't use boost until tricky.

    Race it:
    Stay low, don't go for massive jumps, try and find the quickest path, Try and stay in tricky to have unlimited boost.

    Amazon already gave me my preorder code for "Macs Elite Snowboard," hope its cool.

    Want to know the same as this guy, have not decided wether to buy the game or not, honestly only because of the lack of multiplayer that i've heard from reviews.

    I guess it's actually not possible to play the story mode co-op, and it's not possible to play any kind of split screen, is it even possible to race down a mountain while other people are doing it as well, live?

    I think the whole scoring better than the others is extremely boring, since i wanna try to knock them off the boards as well etc, like i did with my friends in Tricky..

    Just not quite sure if it's worth the money, since the game will probably be dead to me, after the story mode, or how do you guys feel like it is?

    Edited:

    Seems like it's not actually possible, this is such a big downer for me, why would they remove a feature that in my own opinion is so important from the game, it really destroys it honestly, just riding random mountains to beat other peoples scores alone seems pretty dull.

    You see other people in real-time as you're setting scores or racing in multiplayer. So for example, if you're doing a trick event you see the ghosts of other people who're setting scores at the same time as you. If you wait at the start gate you can watch people start their runs and head off

    From time to time in the hints, it keeps telling me that you can smash people of their board to give you an advantage... so that exists. Also, in multiplayer... you're able to create your own global events. You can allow just your friends, friends of friends, and friend chain... depending on what you want. I'm not entirely sure, seeing I've only played singleplayer yet... but from what I'm seeing, racing in real time exists.

    Also, while in single player, sometimes a random ghost would spawn from a real dude. If I beat him, I would receive 2000 more credits! I was also able to collect some of their geotags too!
