Windows 10 Review for Dummies
By Ivory_Soul
Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

SSX 3 Member Review for the PS2

What do these ratings mean?


We all love snowboarding games, especially EA Sport BIG’s SSX series. Developed by EA Canada, people behind Most Wanted and Underground, SSX is one of the epic snowboarding and extreme sports game in history. You can say SSX’s RADIO BIG is similar to Criterion’s Burnout CRASH FM.


One of the things we love in snowboarding games is its environment. Big peaks and out-of-the-mind courses makes us say “High up in the sky time!” and makes us jump out of our couch when we go high and high up in the sky. Also, the new Mountain Effects makes it all but more perfect than anything else, which includes thunder and the foggy mist of the courses you race on. All of the details are awesome, the courses and super pipe courses are sure to make the game look great. Yet, the characters are well detailed but needs some blur to make it perfect.



You want some DJ to rap it all up or some band to make your race a bit more “feel”. Red Hot Chili Peppers, Thrice, Chemical Brothers, and Finger Eleven are in the setlist snowboarding freaks, you can choose what ever tracks you want in your Playlist or just tune in to RADIO BIG. Sound effects of the tricks are just plain and cool. But the DJ takes it all with all the same comments, which makes it more NOT interesting at all.



Same ol’ racing from Peak 1 [bottom] to Peak 3 [top] and the good SSX modes are revamped and improved, now with a new cool level of the “uber tricks”, you can now perform new various tricks when you reach Level 2 of your ‘uber tricks’. In luck, good Old SSX veterans are still in the game like Psymon and Elise but with 6 new freshmen.


There’s an online mode, but I didn’t get the chance to play it since it closed down last 2008. Boooo. Online mode was sure epic and fun.



With a dozen slope challenges, races, super pipes, and big air events will surely keep you busy. But to round it all up, the online mode makes your time worthwhile of playing this game, sadly, the online mode of this game is closed and only a handful of PS2 games w/ online capability are still running, but still online mode of this game is epic.



Considering the much more improved SSX On Tour, SSX 3 for the PS2 is still a must-have for casual gamer and snowboarding freaks. Even for PS3 gamers also, this game is worth buying for.
