Conquer the mountain in style with EA Montreal's Wii exclusive SSX Blur.

To perform tricks, they jerk the Wii remote in various directions, and once they fill the Groove Meter, they draw shapes using both controllers to bust out superhuman maneuvers, all the while the music changes depending on how well they perform.
