Ian Fisher writes: EA’s new SSX reboot may not immediately look like SSX on the surface nor does it entirely feature the same over-the-top moves and courses. But beneath the new sheen of extreme snowboarding EA has created, the SSX DNA is very much present in almost every way. Playable at the lovely gamer’s geek expo supreme that is PAX Prime 2011; EA had a simple SSX single-player demo for lucky journos/bloggers and gamers to enjoy. Opting to go old-school as much as possible, I decided for my initial SSX splash to be done with my boy Toby, who as some of you may have seen has received a more mature make-over much like the rest of the SSX roster including Mac and Elise. Now stepping up to the SSX PAX Prime booth my heart was awash with different emotions as I was excited yet at the same time was hoping things wouldn’t immediately crumble under the weight of my own SSX nostalgia. But after completing the simple solo race event, I couldn’t help but be thrilled with the future of SSX.
