I remember all the previous SSX games have had me hooked from the minute I got them. When I got SSX3 I played it non-stop getting 100% with a few characters.... and even after a long break I came back to it and just enjoyed cruising down the Mountain. Tricky was much the same...... I hammered that game.

But with On Tour I am finding it all pretty boring..... I havn't even completed it yet with my first character, and getting all the shreds and events is becoming a bit of a bore. I rarely touch the game to be honest and only occasionally do I force myself to play it.
The thing is that I'm kind of hoping that once I get the shreds and events out of the way, the game will open up and I will finally get to enjoy the whole mountain.

Am I kidding myself? For those that were dissapointed with this release, has the game got better over time? Once you completed it?

I'm kind of hanging on to it at the moment in the hope that I will become hooked once I have got all the challenges out of the way. But money is tight right now and there are a few other games I want to get, so trading this game in would help me out there.

So did anybody else find playing through the game pretty tedious? If so, have you found new life in it after completion?

If you like to just throw in the game and enjoy riding the slopes not worrying about beating records then unfortunately this game probably won't be for you.

The career mode is annoying and quite boring.

Because of the lack of character interaction/personality and performance/graphics the game will not be omfg!! jaw-dropping but just a good game.

For me the only real annoyance is having to beat the game over and over because of a flawed saving/loading bullshit.

But seeing how the game is now 30 bucks i don't think there's a game out there that is good enough to trade for IMO. And i'm not even sure if you'll get the full ammount for the game if you trade it in :poke

If i were you i'd just beat the game and then if you don't want to go for records then just ride in free-ride. Also, start saving for the next gen systems because they are gonna completely dominate!!! :woot!!!!

The game came out over here a little later than the US, so we havn't had a price drop yet.
They quoted me 20 pounds trade in, if I bring it in by Friday (thats about $35 I think) :???

True, really don't trade it in. I mean, this is an SSX fanatic fansite. Fanatics of FF games buy two copies for each, one to play, and one to keep wrapped. :8| Now, would you be a "fan" of SSX if you didn't even have ONE copy of the game?

You won't get nearly the money you ought to if you sell it now. I'd just keep it.

Just because the game isn't as good as the other ssx's doesnt mean it's a horrible game..

Take a look at the games you have and i guarantee that there are much worse games than ssx on tour. Why not try and sell them? It is completely ludicrous to sell the game.

Meh just keep it for completion's sake.

I'm a fan of the Final Fantasy Series and I hated Final Fantasy X-2, but I didn't return it.

Anyway, On Tour is enjoyable enough that you'll probably wanna play it again at some point.

That is exactly what I did.

I have no use for the pile of human excrement that is OT so I traded it in for Fatal Frame 3 and now I'm back to playing the good old SSX3 and waiting and hoping that SSX5 will be better than that OT crap.

Anyway, I think you should keep it :dj

yeah, im more or less in the exact same boat that vix is, lol. I don't play it, I probably should take it back, but well, quite frankly I'm not really sure id get much if anything (worst case scenario: i have to pay more money to get them to take it back rofl) for it, so I'm gonna keep it but never play it again.......go figure. :shrug

you'd probably pay more money for gas to get to the store than you would get in return for the game, :lol

I'm not gonna trade it in - as an SSX fan it's dedication to the series. Plus I still have some track discovering I'd like to do.

X-Men Legends has been sucking up all my time lately though. :sad

Oh yeah, I'll fully admit this one didn't hold my attention like SSX 3 did. SSX 3 didn't leave my PS2 for like 3 months after I got it. I got tired of this one in about 3 weeks.

But I've still got a lot of stuff I would like to master on the game, especially different showoff courses. Once I get some "breather" time away from the game (and the FAQ) I'll be glad to play it again.
