SSX: Deadly Descents First-Look

SSX Deadly Descents

When SSX: Deadly Descents was announced, via a dark, moody debut trailer, a few months ago, I admit, I was a little confused. It seemed strange that a series best known for its silly, cartoonish take on snowboarding would offer a gritty, realistic, Call of Duty-style snowboarding game. Today's preview sheds light on the game, and as we learn more, it starts  making sense. It seems the idea is to keep some of what made SSX famous while giving it a this-gen gloss.

Here's a taste of Jake Gaskill's first-look at SSX:

"In the same way some game developers like to use successful movie sequels for inspiration on how to approach their own sequels, [producer and creative director] Todd Batty made mention of the latest Star Trek film and The Dark Knight  as reboot reference points to craft Deadly Descents. If this 30-minute overview was a close indicator of the final product, you can expect an unsurprising, yet still compelling, approach; one that is clearly not the SSX you played ten years ago but still will pull at the nostalgia strings when it comes to the gameplay."
