"SSX" ("Snowboard Supercross") is the first in a series of snowboarding video games published by EA Sports BIG. It was developed by EA Canada and released with the launch of the PlayStation 2 in October 26, 2000.

It was widely regarded by many critics in the US and the UK as the best PS2 launch game by quite a distance, who praised its depth, gameplay and graphics.Fact|Dec 2007|date=December 2007


Players may choose one of a number of riders, each with their own statistics and boarding style. A course is selected, and the player is given the option of racing down the course or participating in a competition to do tricks.

Each course is filled with ramps, rails, jumps, and other assorted objects. Performing tricks fills up the player's boost meter, which can then be used for additional acceleration, making tricks important even in a race. While some tricks do have origins in snowboarding, many of the more advanced tricks are not realistic to actual physics. This matters little in games of this style, as the larger and more extreme tricks count for the most points and are the most spectacular to execute. Players also have the option of practicing or exploring courses in "freeride" mode.

Characters and their nationalities

The player has a choice of 8 characters. They are in order:

*Mac Fraser (American)
*Moby Jones (British)
*Elise Riggs (Canadian)
*Kaori Nishidake (Japanese)
*Jurgen Angermann (German)
*JP Arsenault (French)
*Zoe Payne (American)
*Hiro Karamatsu (Japanese)

Of these characters, Jurgen and Hiro weren't included in the sequel, SSX Tricky. Mac also wasn't included in the PAL releases of Tricky, although the sequel's Marty is described as "Mac's cousin."
