Sadly I haven’t had a lot of time to do a proper Broke Gamer review this month, but fear not as Mass Effect 3 and Final Fantasy XIII-2 will get their treatment in the near future. In the meantime, how about a review excerpt for SSX?

“There are some gimmicks, like the wing suit, which do add a bit of extra excitement to the game. Other levels, such as those which require you to stay in the sun to avoid freezing to death or using a headlamp to see the path ahead, are irritating and not the least bit enjoyable. The very mountains that are meant to be the culmination of all your hard work are almost universal letdowns, and what should be the game’s crowning achievement is instead its weakest feature.

“The real meat of SSX can be found in Explore mode, which lets players pick a rider and some gear and drop into any of the game’s 150 events. This is the area where you’ll likely while away the hours, rerunning tracks and coming up with new lines in the hopes of grabbing the shiniest medal and posting the absolute best time or score. Also hidden along the mountains are Geotags placed by other riders, and each one snagged provides a nice chunk of bonus points for your characters. Even more fun, you can hide your own tags, which will continue to rack up points until someone else finds and claims them.”

Be a buddy and head over to WorthPlaying to check out the rest of the review. It’s easier than falling down a mountain.
