SSX, the upcoming snowboarding thriller from EA has to do a lot to live up to. Many consider high-flying original game a classic. In our latest preview, we check out SSX's thrilling gravity-based mode and learn what the wing suit is all about.
"The wingsuit can be activated using the same button used for jumping. Overall I found the gliding to be a welcome change of pace over the more traditional downhill modes of the sport. It’s both thrilling to defy death a couple dozen times in a single route and deal with the challenge of flying your intended path in the face of winds that want to push you off course. This mode was so focused on gliding that it was an added challenge just to fit in a handful of tricks. This was compounded by the fact that some of the landing areas were small enough that I was too busy mentally preparing for the next jump-and-glide to even think about pulling off a high scoring trick."
