i was not thrilled by this game at all. I don't feel that the controls are easy to use. Itis hard to reach all the controls at once that you need at the time. Your skater is difficult to control and if he runs into a wall goodluck getting him to go anywhere else. The graphics are were skipping quite a bit, and the storyline was very dull. I don't reccomend this game to anyone...stick with tonyhawk.
