Videogame golf has recently undergone a similar transformation. For years, golf games invariably relied on the three-button press swing system. Games like Hot Shots Golf refined this interface to the point where it became the golf game standard. However, with the advent of dual analog stick controllers, things have changed. Now, instead of simply pushing buttons to make the onscreen player swing, players will actually control the swing and its tempo by pulling back on the stick for the backswing, then driving it forward to hit the ball. To say this new approach has made videogame golf more realistic is an understatement. This is a transformation of the way the game is played in much the same way that club technology has changed the real game.

Game Description: It's you against the mountain. SSX 3 challenges gamers to drop in and conquer a massive, living mountain rife with ego-crushing challenges and gravity-bending thrills. Sporting an all-new open-ended gameplay structure, gamers are free to ride anywhere gravity takes them, seamlessly boarding from one event to the next as they begin their assault on the mountain's three larger-than-life peaks. Gamers will need to overcome everything the mountain throws at them-from fierce lightening storms and breathtaking vertical drops to serpentine slope style courses and earth-swallowing avalanches-on their quest for the ultimate adrenaline rush. The mountain presents gamers with a world of open vistas and fresh powder for out of bounds exploration, filled with trick venues, rail parks, racecourses, and half-pipes with new tricks to master and new competitors to leave in the dust.

SSX 3 – Review

SSX 3 is fantastic, despite a few small issues. It can be oddly frustrating at times, yet it has enough merit to make it one of my favorite games this year. It doesn't necessarily refresh the nostalgia I had when it was SSX two releases ago, but it definitely re-introduces the fun lacking in the gaming slump I've experienced lately. With a solid array of courses and the addition of online rivalry, SSX 3 is very rewarding and, more importantly, ultimately fun.
