Is it like SSX tricky? I loved that.
Not really, it's more open and less emphasis on tricks and scores etc.
Tell me more Markg... This is on my radar but I need convincing.
It's a huge mountain area with no loading times so you basically just explore on skis, snowboard, paraglider or wingsuit. In terms of how it feels to play it's more like EA Skate but without any of the difficulty. It's not trying to be a simulator or anything but it simulates the feeling of snowboarding just as well as skate does skateboarding. i.e. just looking around and deciding what it would be fun to try doing rather than having someone tell you. There are contests and races etc. and I've done a few but mostly I've just been blasting around. It's lovely e.g. to see a spot that looks like it would be fun to bomb down and then have a chilled few minutes flying your paraglider up there. Instant restarts too so after you have spent all that time flying up if you then BASE jump straight into a rock it'll start you off right where you last changed sports.
