Description

SSX Blur is a snowboarding / skiing game with gameplay similar to SSX 3. Once again there are three mountain peaks to explore; the main game is a career mode which initially begins on peak 1, to unlock the remaining peaks you'll need to successfully complete events. The events you'll find on the mountain include races, slopestyle competitions, big air events, assorted challenges, and more. Also available is a quick play mode where you can jump straight to some events and multiplayer modes.

As you make your way down the mountain you can perform a variety of tricks; these can be simple grabs, or tougher jumps, rail slides and spins. A successful trick will fill up your groove meter; once the groove meter is filled, you can perform an ubertrick. Ubertricks are the toughest tricks to pull off, but earn the most points. In addition to ubertricks, the groove meter can also be used for a speed boost. The game is played with both the Wii remote and the nunchuk. The nunchuk is utilized for accelerating/braking, carving, grabs, and jumps while the remote is used to perform flips, spins, and other tricks. Performing tricks requires tilting/moving the Wii remote in the appropriate direction, and ubertricks may additionally require drawing various shapes with the remote. Many ubertricks are available initially, however additional tricks need to be unlocked.

As you race down the mountain you'll encounter various collectibles; by running into enough of these icons you can unlock additional ubertricks. Using the Wii remote you also have the ability to throw snowballs, an ability which can prove useful in races by slowing down your opponents; you'll need to be careful though to make sure you don't knock yourself off balance!

The game features a variety of characters you can control, many have appeared in other games in the SSX Series while a few are new to this game. Only a few characters are available initially, others will need to be unlocked by progressing through the games career mode.
