Steep was in open beta this weekend. How does it stack up against the classic SSX series.
Are you surprised? I mean, I despise EA and haven't bought any of their stuff in a long time, but it's not like anything in the genre ever comes close to SSX ( we don't talk about blur.)
"Bummer" Yup! My thoughts exactly. SSX is my go-to game when the snow starts to fall and I can't take time off for a ski trip... which generally isn't until late winter. :(
" Whilst getting a certain score in an event awards you with a medal, your limited trick ability, especially on a snowboard, means events offer far less than simply exploring." I disagree. off the top of my head i can recall the snowboarding having over 20 tricks just involving the L2. the trick system is very similar to SKATE. There are basic grabs of L2 and R2, tweaking those after grabbing with the Right joystick, also joysticks plus L2/R2 and then tweaking those as well. Its an easy game to learn, difficult to master, some tricks if done properly can net you huge points and combo meter. just need to take the time to learn them.
Either way we have another Holiday 2016 stinker of a seller. Just blame it on BF1 and COD like with Titanfall 2.
I'm sorry but Steep is Garbage....
Yeah, it kinda felt meh. I didnt like awful alot of the controls of different modes, the routes seemed sort of boring and ended really quick, and jumping from stuff didnt feel really satisfying. Though I dont like sports games that much, and know nothing about snowboarding. I guess they tried to make some stuff feel more down to earth than crazy. On another note, I kind of want to play SSX3 again.
Yah, while playing Steep the one game that came to mind was SSX3. Huge mountains as well to play around in, but not even close in quality or fun. They did try for a more realistic feel to the game than the over the top approach of the SSX series. With all they're trying to do in it, only half the activities (snowboarding, skiing) felt a bit fun. The wingsuit felt like a flappy bird game, while paragliding was just meh. Hopefully the game does well, because future games could have some serious potential. Sadly though, this looks like it'll get skipped over with all the big name games coming out like FF XV stealing the spotlight.
Steep is amazing. Playing with friends is great. It's easy to play, but difficult to master. Release can't come soon enough. What a refreshing video game in a world of copycats.
I couldn't get on with SSX (it was the only PS2 game I sold). Cool Boarders 2 was the one for me.
Tried the beta. Nearly put me to sleep. Plus, Ubisoft. No thanks. Tainted my library with this thing against my better judgment.
