Un titre sympa et clairement surprenant au niveau de la qualité de sa réalisation. Graphiquement réussi, fun à jouer en dépit que quelques défauts, SSW Tricky trouvera très probablement sa place dans la ludothèque des possesseurs de GBA en mal de bons jeux dans cette catégorie.
Even in light of the few imperfections noted above, you'd be hard-pressed not to enjoy SSX Tricky on the Game Boy Advance. It may not look as nice as the PS2 version, but for all intents and purposes it feels identical. There is a little learning curve to master before you can unleash a continual stream of super ubertricks, but the effort is worth it once you unlock the last two stages and literally become a superhero with a snowboard.

Cette conversion Game Boy de SSX Tricky n'est pas une réussite. Les déplacements sont très saccadés et rendent la glisse plutôt lente. De plus, réaliser la moindre figure tient de la prouesse. Et comme le graphisme n'est pas très fin, on ne peut pas dire que l'ensemble soit adapté à une console aussi petite.
Visual Impact's attempt at bringing the SSX Tricky game to the GBA is a nice one, but its control flaws and its limiting 3D engine hurt the overall enjoyment of the design conversion. It has all the necessary elements for a quality Game Boy Advance title: unlockable characters, hidden treats, cartridge save for the best time on each course. But the cons definitely outweigh the pros, making this snowboarding game only slightly better than average.

De fait, et malgré la présence de 8 circuits à l'ambiance variée, on tombe vite dans la monotonie. Certes, nouveaux parcours et persos aux caractéristiques boostées se débloquent selon vos performances... Mais le mauvais dosage de la difficulté aura raison de vos nerfs : les adversaires trichent ostensiblement et les scores à réaliser sont successivement trop simples ou trop durs. Dommage, car la jouabilité est très bonne...
All Game Guide
A stuttering frame rate in a high-speed racing title absolutely kills any fun players will have with the game, and it's a shame considering how close the graphic engine tries to replicate the SSX experience, even going so far as to include battery backup so players can save their best times and progress during the competitive World Circuit. Perhaps the lack of two-player support was a telltale sign that something was amiss in this handheld title. If reviews are a recital, the reviewer thinks it's very vital, to rock a game, that's wrong or lame, with "Tricky" in the title. (All apologies to Run DMC.)
Digital Press - Classic Video Games
There is no logical reason for this game to be in anyones game library. It's a blatant attempt to capitalize on the good name of SSX. This is NOT SSX and don't let the box fool you. The only thing this game has in common is the fact that it's a snowboarding game, and it's a pitiful one at that.
