now i have some doubts aboutthe wii. I know it is impossable. I JUST CAN see any supporting games in the future. And yes smash is kinda fruit-e because OF THE SPIECAL ATTACH. cheap. anywayss this game is fun. a litle hard to start off but fun. I love racing with friends and the story line is chessey but ATHSOME. it is fun i recomend you rent it unless you have not played RAVING RABBIDS...

Controls are easy and fun, repetitive game setup

This game was rented, and I played it until I beat it. Towards the final stages it gets tough, but I was pulling off single combos for 1,500,000 points easily with 2x and 3x combos with grinds down hill.

Its way different than any Tony Hawk game, but in a unique and fun way! The tilting of the control comes easy and natural after a few courses, and its easy to pull of combos and balance. Some people may find the game hard to master, but I had no problem until I hit the last level where you have to get to the end to race an unknown skater.

The level design was reused many times with just adding different races and trick levels, but it worked fine and kept my attention. Once I completed the game, I don't ever see myself coming back to want to play that game again. Definately a strong rental though!

This game lacks in graphics, but the game play is very good. It took the entire duration of the tutorial plus a few races to get used to the controls, but otherwise it plays great!
One major downside is the lame dialog from the characters in this game. They all seem pretty immature and just plain silly, but 8-year-olds might like it.
Also, the Wii-mote seems to have a blind spot if you turn it too close to a 90 degree angle.
The Multi-player racing is quite fun though and isn't limited to controller attachments, which helps if you can only afford an extra Wii-mote and not anything with it.
If you can get it for $20 it's a good buy, any more than that, and it's a little bit too much for what you are getting.
Rent it first.

Graphics 7
game play 9
sound 9
duration 7

Final score: 8
