SSX Tricky is one of those games that should be added to your PS2 library. Celebrity voices, DVD features, and the game itself makes it well worth the buy.
The Making of SSX Tricky comes along with the game though it can only be played on the PS2. It shows the behind the scenes look in producing the game and utilizing voice talent. The only criticism is Lucy Liu's comments on the game where she only mentions a few minute's worth. However, looking at David Arquette, Macy Gray, Jim Rose et al provides a spin in making the game. The soundtrack and music, especially Run DMC's "It's Tricky", makes the tunes mesh along with the game well.
As for playing the game, the courses are challenging but the game can be easy or difficult to accomplish depending on the character and board selected. Gameplay is easy though executing the tricks can take time.
Also, don't forget to have a memory card in the system. It takes a good deal of time to finish on top in each category, be the race or showoff part of the game. If you only have heard about Tricky, you don't need to play the original game SSX to be a master, though fans of the original will get their money's worth playing Tricky.
In terms of a fictional game compared to those using real names it's easy to get caught into the "story" of Tricky.
The next SSX game when and if it gets released will have to exceed the gameplay of Tricky (and SSX the Original), and Jam Master Jay will be missed!
