Und auf den ersten Blick würde man bei SSX on Tour sagen: „Okay, der Grafikstil in den Menüs ist abgefahren. Ach ja, Skifahren geht jetzt auch. Aber sonst ist das doch SSX 3.5“. Doch mit vielen kleinen Verbesserungen im Bereich der Steuerung, stark ausgebauten Aufgabenstellungen bei der Tour als Hauptspielmodus sowie einer wahnsinnigen Geschwindigkeit, die den Ausgleich für das etwas vernachlässigte Freiheitsgefühl aus SSX 3 kompensiert, ist On Tour mehr als nur eine lahme Fortsetzung. Und ja: Der Menü-Grafikstil ist nicht nur abgefahren, sondern entspricht mehr dem Genre als sämtlich Versuche der Tony Hawk’s-Serie. Das Skifahren hingegen ist für mich nicht mehr als eine nette Ergänzung eines ohnehin ausgereiften Gameplay-Prinzips. Abgesehen von dem etwas schwachbrüstigen Charaktererstellungs-Tool, dem fehlenden Online-Modus sowie den sporadischen Rucklern, die in der GameCube-Version auftauchen, ist SSX on Tour eine konsequente und empfehlenswerte Weiterentwicklung.

Even though there's a lot to love about SSX On Tour, the game doesn't feel as groundbreaking as its predecessors, even with the new additions. Since just about every trail is unlocked from the beginning, you won't get to feel the satisfaction of making your way to a new mountain (one of the best parts of SSX 3) and exploring it for the first time. Still, there's no denying that this is yet another stellar entry one of the most consistently excellent series around today. Now, strap on your skis and go find some fresh powder!

Putting my finger on what's wrong is difficult, about the only thing I can say is that without the living, breathing mountain that was the hallmark of SSX 3, On Tour simply felt like it had devolved. Good game, but it could have been so much more.

SSX est une série que l'on a énormément de plaisir à retrouver sur consoles, et ce dernier opus démontre qu'elle a encore beaucoup d'atouts en réserve pour nous impressionner. Inutile d'aimer le sport pour apprécier SSX On Tour, tant les sensations qu'il procure sont incroyables. Dévaler les pentes enneigées dans la peau d'un skieur ou d'un snowboarder n'aura jamais été aussi grisant, et vous risquez de mettre beaucoup de temps avant de vous en remettre.

SSX On Tour is smooth like ice, slapped with a green hair mohawked snowboarder and a few flashing fists of metal. This is one wild game which can be enjoyed by all levels of gamers. Although I haven't always been a huge fan of the series this is the one which will bring you over to the dark side. Do It, You'll love It. SSX On Tour rocks out large.

SSX bleibt SSX, und das in der inzwischen vierten Auflage. Fans der Serie bekommen auch in SSX on tour irre Tricks, wahnwitzige Abfahrten und eine tolle Technik geboten. Alle Spielelemente sind auf schnellen Spielspaß getrimmt, einfach einlegen und einige Stunden Spaß haben. Mir persönlich reicht dafür allerdings auch einer der besseren Vorgänger, der neue Teil wirkt in vielen Bereichen liebloser (etwa ohne die lieb gewonnenen alten Charaktere, Streckendesign) und unvollständiger (kein Online-Modus, keine Gegnerbeziehungen) als die herausragenden SSX Tricky oder SSX 3. Trotzdem ist SSX on tour ein tolles Fungame, dass sich Fans nicht entgehen lassen sollten, für Gelegenheitszocker reicht der billigere Vorgänger aber vollends.

As extreme sports games go, this is an incredibly fun game. If you've never picked up any of the SSX games, this is a great one to start with. The graphics are sweet, the gameplay is fun and easy, and the moves are truly sick. And if you're an SSX champion with the missing limbs and blood transfusions to prove it, there are definitely enough new elements here to come [or, more likely, stagger, crawl, or claw - ed.] back to the slopes. Just don't actually try any of this at home, kids. Life, as anyone who lives in New York and has tried to steal a car will tell you, ain't no video game. But if anybody could tell me what to do with the freaking Yoshi in my apartment, I'd really appreciate it.

Hurtling down the tundra and concocting ridiculously large combo strings remain irresistible qualities, but the torturous design of the game makes you want to take the next flight off of this mountain. If you played SSX 3, this release is one of the biggest letdowns of the year.

Snow Miser, Mr. White Christmas himself, is duly pleased. The fourth iteration of Electronic Arts’ extreme snowboarding series SSX comes with 12 new tracks to plummet down and trick off of, a series of “Shred” races against competitors, and new create-a-character options within the game’s World Tour mode. For this go-round, skiing has been added, but this seems largely cosmetic. It’s hard to note how, exactly, the board handles differently than the blades during gameplay. No matter; As always, the grinding is good, the tricks easy enough for a schlub to pull off, and Electronic Arts does a fine job of fleshing everything out with a series of animated pencil line-drawings that jackhammer home the game’s exceedingly cool style.

I like SSX On Tour. I like Amped 2 better. SSX is missing a couple of key elements that would have put it on the same level as Amped, namely online gameplay. But the trade-off is a very good control system that you have to get used to but is enough like an arcade game to let first-time players really get into things. It's the first time skiing has been incorporating skiing into a snowboarding game! All in all, it's a fun game to pop in now and again, especially when you just want to relax and shred the mountain.
