E3 2011: SSX is back!

“It’s tricky to rock a rhyme
To rock a rhyme that’s right on time
It’s tricky, it’s tricky
tricky, tricky tricky”

One my favorite extreme sports games is back and it’s looking incredible! EA Sports is bringing back SSX. With a grittier look compared to the upbeat and brightly colored SSX games in the past, I am liking the art style.

Now SSX purists might not be so hot about the new look but never fear, the game still retains the over-the-top arcadey feel in the tricks. A mode called Trick It will require you to perform insane air stunts to earn points. Pulling off huge tricks and landing them will cause a shockwave on the scenery that help you get bigger air. Oh and the Tricky meter is back.

The other two game modes are Race It and Survive It. Race It is pretty obvious as it’s your standard racing game mode. Survive It sounds a little more interesting. The trailer that was shown at this year’s E3 showed two riders outrunning an avalanche. After a big leap of the edge of the mountain and all hope seemed lost for the riders. One of them launches a cable and latches onto a helicopter while the other transforms their suit into a flying suit and glided across the air.

From the flying squirrel suit, this is probably the same game as the SSX: Deadly Descent game that EA teased us about last year.

How can you not get excited about this game?
