If you were sitting on the fence about EA’s latest snowboard-action romp SSX, now might be the time to jump up and grind that mofo. Effective now and ending this Tuesday, Gamestop and Origin are selling this bad boy for $39.99. However, if a thirty percent price cut isn’t enough to sway your decision and you didn’t check out Chad’s review earlier, now would be a good time to do so.
Especially nostalgic fans who loved competing with their friends in the original SSX games will want to pay special attention. Chad says “For a certainty this is a great game and a worthy ‘reboot’ of the franchise that has been missing for many years,” though he has some misgivings about the multiplayer modes — most notably, the lack of a split-screen option so you can play with your friends in the same room. This feature has, sadly, fallen into the background of many games these days, but its loss is more keenly felt in reboots like this, where the social element was a focal point of the original entries.
