Oh man, with the announcement of SSX: Deadly Descents I want to run back and play SSX Tricky. The original game was released alongside the Playstation 2 and was one of the first games The Armchair Empire reviewed. Hard to believe that was 10 years ago!
A few details:
Redefining the SSX franchise, SSX: Deadly Descents will pit riders versus both mountain and man. Players will explore the story of a team who seek to be the first to descend the faces of the most treacherous mountain ranges on the planet. The team will travel the world to face the worst that Mother Nature can throw at them. From the peaks of the Himalayas, where the air is so thin that riders have to descend through the death zone at breakneck speeds to keep from blacking out, to the solid ice ranges of Antarctica, where a sunlit line is the only survival option when temperatures drop 50 degrees centigrade in the shade. And the mountain isn’t the only danger players will face. In SSX: Deadly Descents the first goal is to survive. The second, in true SSX fashion, is to look good doing it.
No word on a release date so to fill the time read our reviews of SSX Tricky (XB), SSX On Tour (PS2), SSX (PS2), and SSX Blur. The be sure to read some action figure reviews: Elise (SSX) and Eddie (SSX).
