Here's a great GameZone special... two great EA Sports games for the price of one!
"It's a pretty rare thing when a game comes seemingly out of nowhere and absolutely rocks its platform... Beautiful graphics, huge courses, great multiplayer and infinite replayability round out the package to make this hands-down the best game on the PS2." - www.dailyradar.com - Direct Hit!"
EA SPORTS presents its first original PlayStation 2 console title, SSX. Based on the new extreme sport Boardercross, SSX combines high-speed snowboard racing with insane big air tricks on what is best described as an exaggerated snow covered motocross track. In this knock out style of competition, resplendent with jumps, steep turns, tunnels, and hidden shortcut sections, six racers soar down the hill, but only the first one down wins.
There are over 50 international sides to choose from, but if you want to keep things closer to home there are 17 top leagues from which to choose a team. And as for the players? Their facial expressions and body language add to the natural motion captured moves that the likes of Scholes, Matthaus, Davids and Mendieta helped create, and players display varying degrees of urgency depending on their position on the pitch.
New cinematic camera design and subtly absorbing ambient sounds mean full immersion, and with details as minute as rotating ad boards, moving clouds and weather lighting changes, you'll swear it's more than just a game.
