Game Informer Online has posted their preview of SSX: On Tour.
"I have a lot of mixed feelings about SSX: On Tour. On the one hand I love the skiing, and hope that it continues in the next versions of the franchise. But with all the things EA changed and removed from the game, SSX: On Tour in general feels less exciting than SSX 3. I donít feel as if Iím progressing as much with this map menu, and I never seem to have enough money to upgrade my skis, board, or outfits as I did in previous iterations. Plus with the added emphasis on goal accomplishment, it makes me miss what I loved dearly with the franchise up to this point. SSX: On Tour isnít a bad game by any means, but it seems like a step backwards instead of a quadruple flip forward."
