SSX’s reboot has come a long way since its lackluster debut at the 2010 Video Game Awards. Not only has EA ditched the laughable subtitle, Deadly Descent, but they hired on lead designers from arguably the best game in the franchise, SSX Tricky. Today’s new gameplay trailer reinforces my high hopes for the franchise. The game looks stunning and the characters have a cartoony aesthetic that’s just subtle enough to blend them in with their realistic environments. It’s really great to see the old cast back together again too. Here’s hoping EA brings back the over the top voice acting too.
I need to wash the bland taste of SSX Blur out of my mouth.
