Over the years I've had more than my share of computer games. Most get played for a bit and then retired quickly. Our Playstation 2 is far more of a DVD player than a consistently used game system. However, whenever a new SSX game comes out it deserves attention. SSX 3 came out last fall and we got a copy for Christmas. It's even better than the last versions. The impossible uber tricks are even more impossible and impressive. The best elements of the old Winter Games are incorporated with players earning cash to purchase accessories or new tricks. The mixture of challenges and the opportunity for free riding will keep this game in use for longer than most.
