The five PS2 classics we want on iPhone NOW

2. SSX

The prospect of a snowboarding game on the iPhone might understandably be met with a weary ‘meh’, but SSX is more than just baggy trousers and raised inflections. It was one of the most critically acclaimed PS2 launch titles, and it still has an army of (probably goatee’d) fans who are quite entitled to march on EA Towers, demanding a mobile conversion. A straight port would suffice, but including the iPhone’s gyro-warlockery would be the fondant half-pipe atop the snowcake.

Time it to coincide with the thankfully de-grittified SSX reboot, and we can all get piste together. Sorry, that was awful.

Here’s an SSX PS3 video with gameplay footage and an interview with one of the developers.
