Eine Warnung an gestandene Wintersporthasser: SSX on Tour wird euch bekehren und konvertiert selbst hartnäckige Verweigerer mit links. Wenn ihr auf keinen Fall der Faszination von eindrucksvollen Stunts bei lächerlich hohem Tempo erlegen wollt, lasst unbedingt die Finger von dem Spiel. Solltet ihr aber nur das geringste Interesse für den coolen Spaß übrig haben, dann greift zu! Trotz des geringeren Umfangs sowie einigen unglücklichen Perspektiven rockt SSX on Tour auch auf der PSP – und das dank des fetzigen Soundtracks im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes. Nur für den Fall, dass ihr schon die Konsolenfassung besitzt und nicht unbedingt euren Beifahrern in Bus und Bahn beweisen müsst, wie lässig ihr über die Piste rauscht, solltet ihr euch den Kauf zwei mal überlegen.

Simply put, this is one of the better games EA Sports BIG has ported to the PSP. I think they've done an all-around solid job with all of their three or four games on the PSP, but on its own, SSX On Tour is just a great game. It's fun, it's fast, and it's a challenge that you won't want to miss. Check it out. Even though it's a strange $10 more than the console version, it's still worth the extra cash to take around with you.

For EA's first SSX game on a handheld, they sure did a great job! As I say it's a little more scaled down than the PS2 version in terms of graphics and such. But it's not scaled down to the effect that you feel something big is missing. For the first snowboarding game on the Sony PSP, I give it the thumbs up! Shread on dudes!

SSX on Tour lacks that complete originality that would classify it as an “A class” title. With so few games for the PSP on shelves right now though you would be wise to pick this one up and give it a try. If you've played any of the SSX games of the past you should know what to expect going in, and you should (for the most part) not be disappointed.

SSX On Tour is an accessible mix of the last two SSX games that offers plenty of challenge, an alluring, likable style, and enough long-term appeal to keep you busy for quite a while. The game is probably not reason enough to buy a PSP, but if you already own one then you're guaranteed to have a good time with SSX On Tour.

SSX On Tour is an excellent addition to the PSP library. Skiing is a blast even though it's not significantly different from boarding, and the rock infused presentation is a perfect fit. There's no question that this game is worth your money, but keep in mind that nearly every area of the game will feel a tad meager when compared to the console versions.

Extreme sports games are usually a dime a dozen, but the SSX series has stood out both critically and commercially. This one is no different, but for those of us who like our extreme sports on solid ground: Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland might suffice.

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.

"SSX On Tour" is a satisfying way to bring the franchise onto the PSP. Although a few minor issues with clipping and the camera mixed with the mysterious monster trick system and a flat character creation and customization system plague the game, their effects on the overall quality of the game is very low, resulting in a visually pleasing game back up with some great sound and the type of Gameplay expected from any SSX game.

All around, SSX on Tour isn't a bad choice for gamers looking to take the experience on the road. It's not as phenomenal as SSX 3 on consoles, but for a handheld, it certainly beats the crap out of SSX 3 on Game Boy Advance. Fans wanting the SSX on Tour experience should be happy, unless they want an absolutely console-perfect version, which this is not. Still, even with its truncations and small flaws (lack of create-a-character and a just-okay soundtrack), it's a solid game and ought to leave people happy.

If you’re still a fan of the SSX series, then there’s no reason, other than the $50 price tag to not pick up the PSP version of On Tour. It’s a technically impressive game that manages to capture most everything the series is known for. If you’re growing tired of the series, and you’re hoping that playing it on the go might re-kindle your interest – it’s probably not going to happen, and it’s not worth dropping fifty bucks to find out.

The first thing that will strike you about SSX On Tour is how good it looks. It’s a step behind the console versions, but it’s damn impressive and even better for how fast it moves. Thankfully, this graphical excellence doesn’t come with the price of huge load times. However, like many PSP games, it also suffers a bit from the "little brother" syndrome. It’s almost the same thing, but with just a little less. I really didn’t feel compelled by the career mode, which eschews SSX 3’s awesome open mountain design for a menu-based approach, making the game feel like just a series of disconnected modes and challenges, with no sense of real exploration. Also, echoing my feelings about SSX on Xbox, the series was clearly designed for the PS2’s four shoulder buttons. Even more disappointing, you’ll find that all the tracks here are repeats of courses from SSX 3.

Une première version PSP de SSX somme toute très correcte, qui devrait faire passer d’agréables moments aux amateurs de glisse. Dommage que trop de petits défauts viennent empêcher ce jeu de prendre une dimension supérieure sur PlayStation Portable. SSX On Tour n’en reste pas moins un jeu très impressionnant techniquement et d’une fraîcheur très plaisante.

Voilà un titre qui s'impose d'emblée comme un excellent jeu de glisse. Sorte de mélange entre les versions consoles de salon de SSX 3 et de SSX On Tour, la version PSP réclame néanmoins un temps d'adaptation plus grand pour maîtriser les commandes qui pâtissent un peu du fait qu'il faille jongler entre le stick et la croix pour faire des figures. On prend cependant un grand plaisir à dévaler les pentes dans des environnements très réussis.

Varying wildly from the home version, SSX On Tour is not the same game. This is a version of the series made strictly for the PSP. It's easy to say this is the best handheld SSX yet, though when your other options are on the Game Boy Advance and N-Gage, that doesn't say much.
