"Extreme sports titles have all but died out over the last five plus years. Gone are the days when you would hear your friends discussing their ridiculously high scores in the latest Tony Hawk title or when you could constantly try to improve your best combo on a grind rail whilst rocking out with punk bands like Blink 182 and Sum 41. While new ideas were ventured such as EA attempting to bring a more realistic feel with its Skate series and Activision trying to take Mr. Hawk in a new direction with the awful skateboarding peripheral, it simply wasn’t enough to prevent the bleak looking fate of the once thriving extreme sporting genre. But is it all over? Seems EA isn’t ready to quite call it quits and have resurrected their SSX series once more to deliver what could be the most exhilarating experience the franchise has seen yet."
