A fast-paced, highly competitive and technical game of realtime chess and hype using various Nintendo characters, with simple controls yet deep mechanics, made this the best fighting game in the series.
In this update to Nintendo's classic adventure game, a young man named Link must gather the three Spiritual Stones and awaken the Seven Sages in order to overthrow Ganondorf, a tyrannical warlock terrorizing the land of Hyrule.
Jak tries to help his friend Daxter after he transforms into a hybrid of an otter and a weasel. With the help of a Sage, the pair learn that they must save their world from the antagonists Gol and Maia, who plan to flood it with Dark Eco.
This is a sequel to the "SSX" fantasy snowboarding game. "Tricky" implements new advances on the Playstation 2 and the graphics are better. The levels are pretty good and there are a wide range of characters to choose from.
I enjoyed the game when I played it, but couldn't help but grow tired of it after a while. The soundtrack is really grating and the large voice cast - Macy Gray, David Arquette, Billy Zane - purposely stand out, which becomes kind of irritating also.
You can perform many advanced (and ridiculous) snowboarding tricks (in fact, that's the basic goal of the game), build stats, etc. There are also many shortcuts on the courses so when you are playing with two people, being a veteran of the game certainly helps.
Overall, a good game - but not one I'd want to buy.
