SSX - On Tour
EA Canada made the conscious decision during the development process of SSX On Tour to discard the online multiplayer functionality that was originally found in SSX 3. This might seem like a step backwards, but the decision to focus on the single-player game, which has always been the big draw for the series, seems to be paying off so far. Still, even with its unenviable task of having to outdo the amazing single-player experience in SSX 3, EA Canada found time to include a two-player split-screen multiplayer game in SSX On Tour. Though it's not integrated into the tour mode, which serves as the game's main single-player experience, multiplayer game is wired into the mode, and you won't have access to many of the game's signature characters or the different multiplayer events until you have bested them in the single-player play.
SSX - On Tour
So, after a few hours of shredding things up in the tour mode, we took the game's split-screen multiplayer for a spin. By this point, we had unlocked a decent number of event options, and considered choosing from either a straightforward one-on-one race, a trick competition in which each player tries to outscore the other, or a unique new game that challenges each player to try to grind 350 meters' worth of railing first. To be honest, with the game's generally responsive controls and the new, easy-to-use monster trick system, the either/or distinction dissolved rather quickly, and we happily went at it in all three events.
