It's tricky, tricky, tricky, tricky. So we didn't.
EA Canada's 2012 reboot of the trick-crazy snowboarding series is free right now via Games with Gold. That means Xbox 360 owners with Gold memberships can download the game at no extra cost, and that's for keeps - it doesn't matter if your Gold subscription runs out. SSX will stay free on Games with Gold until the end of the month.
In his review, ex-Joystiq nosegrabber Ben Gilbert said the Deadly Descents hook "almost ruined" SSX. However, when the game was on song he enjoyed it plenty:
"From a mechanical perspective, it's the best treatment the 'extreme sports' genre has received on the current generation of systems thus far. Unfortunately, it's wrapped in a dirty old program from X-Games '98 and punctuated with frustrating moments. With such a great base, I'm hoping the next SSX is everything this one could have been."
