I guess im just too used to Tony Hawks Pro Skater games that I cant play other skating games. Ive been playing that series since the first one and its hard to try to get used to this games controlls. Its 10 times more complicated and thats really bad for me.

Nothing about this game really appeals to me at all, not even the graphics are praisable. I dont reccomend this game at all unless your a fan of the first.

Very Good

A Real Skateboarding Game

Game is difficult in it's own right because it plays like a real skateboarding game should. You will fall down many times at first if you didn't play the original.

I like the magazine shoots and vast city exploration. Although some tricks are very hard to do and can include doing a plain ol' olley. Sometimes you may not get the "down then up" on the controller dead on, so you'll do a flip trick instead. Makes things more interesting though.

Fair

thought this was the "NEW" Skate game

I thought that there was a new Skate game released, so I rented this game. It is exactly the same. Same town characters, everything is the same. the only thing new is the fact you can get off your board and walk around (very poorly at that)and there are some new tricks. but overall I was disappointed. if you liked the first own then give it a try but dont expect anything grand out of it.
